Fair 4.0
Next time won't stay there!
So smelly common area! They do not have lockers for all of the guests in some of the rooms! Absolutely unacceptable for a hostel that pretends to be one of the best in Berlin! Friendly staff.

5* - book if a solo traveler or group of friends
Stayed for 2 nights in 4-bed mixed dorm. It was just what they promoted and what I paid for. Shower and bathroom better than other dorms as there is a sink in both rather than in some hotels where there is a sink only with the shower and defeats the purpose. Best location, near restaurants, tube, metro, and so on. Highly recommend. Staff also very helpful and friendly.

Poor 2.0
One of the worst choices to stay in Berlin.
Rooms were tiny with just one towel. My room was looking at hotel's yard with extremely heavy music & bass from the club in the yard of the hotel. The staff was very rude, they refused to change me room. couldn't find an authorized person and the hotel after 48h replied that they do not give any kind of compensation. It's one of the worst places to stay in Berlin.

Convenient area
The lounge, the kitchen, and bar area was well kept together. The rooms should have curtains for privacy.There was no proper shower head and the outcome was horrendous.

Clean but Lacking
The room was clean and the place was overall quite nice. Very social atmosphere and bar. The rooms were extremely hot at night with no AC. You are only given a heavy blanket that you’re better off not using. The portable fan in the room was broken for the 6 days I was there and they didn’t have a replacement. The windows for some rooms overlook a courtyard, so it can be quite loud with the windows open late at night and early in the morning. With no kitchen or free meals provided, the ‘no outside food’ rule seems excessive.
