Fair 4.0
The rooms looks Very very different vs on what is represented on the pictures. The rooms quality is poor and the beds and furniture are not clean at all. The bed sheets and towels are clean and delivered at the reception. Toilettes (individual for each room) are outside of the room, in a small shared hallway with the other room. The rooms Staff is ok, bar is opened and they serve beverages and beer. Location is 400m from M6 tramp line that goes directly to the Alexander platz in the center. Nearby a small shopping mall with all necessities & food court with a good Italian caffe & pasta.

Ganz ok
Wir würden in das A&O Berlin Mitte umgebucht. Das A&O Hostel ist ein Hostel für wirklich wenig Geld und das sollte man hier nicht vergessen. Wenn das ein Hotel mit vier Sternen wäre würde die Bewertung anders ausfallen. Es ist relativ laut, da es hellhörig ist. In den Zimmer findet man Haare und Staub, dennoch ist es relativ sauber. Die Lage ist gut und die Leute an der Rezeption sind gestresst aber bemüht.

Good Value For $ - Gr8 service team :)
Wonderful reception desk personnel! We declined housekeeping when we checked-in & were comped 2 drinks -we chose the beer :) The bldg has been totally reno'd since our last stay. The reserved parking is reasonably priced, but free, local street parking wasn't too hard to find. This is a dog-friendly hotel. We always stay in a private room & were lucky to get an upgrade again; this time to the roomier 'family room.' The nicest aspect of this location is the BIG mix of clients. Families, E. Euro basketball team, senior couples, Italian marching band etc.

It was better than expected. For the price paid, we though that was amazing comfort for the family of 4. Nothing to complain about.

Not bad comparing price. Off street parking at own risk (no occurrence so far). Couple of parking from the property extra chargable although expedia says free parking. Only the floor carpet bothered me and could be better cleaned.

Clean, but strange room design
The door situation was weird. You enter through one locked door, whereupon you find yourself in a room with four more doors: one each for two separate rooms and their respective bathrooms. Each room nominally has a private bathroom, but you have to pass through the shared antechamber to reach it. The weirdest part is that the building was clearly designed in traditional hotel style with each room having its own direct door to the hallway and a fully private bathroom. The antechamber is some sort of bizarre modification. It would also have been nice if the room had a fan. Finally, it's worth noting that our room appeared to be acting as a storage unit for spare bunk beds.

Room was clean and spacious, for two adults and two kids, bed was comfortable, nice linens. Parking is free on the street behind the hotel, but there's also paid parking in front of the hotel. Reception staff is very polite and friendly.
