Great location, clean, kind staff
This was a very nice stay in a very hip part of Berlin, Prenzlauerberg. The accommodations were clean, the staff was friendly and they have a luggage room for early arrivals / late check-outs. The area is what makes this place the best. There are many bars, a blues club, and a Weekend Flea Market nearby. Also convenient is a nearby supermarket and 24h convenience store. The accommodations are nothing fancy, but if you are looking for a cheap, clean place in a great location, this will do the trick! Also, despite being near some quality nightlife, the place itself was rather quiet. Good access to the U-Bahn and tram networks, also.

Everything was good except one point.
Everything was very good except for one fact. Water pressure of the shower was very weak. This is the only negative point.

nice one
A nice budget hostel with friendly helpful staff. Very large kitchen with dining room and shared lounge available downstairs. Lots of shared bathrooms so you can easily use them. Nice city area with lots of pubs and shops, metro just next to it. The only minus is the fact that you can hear everything from the corridor and the adjoining room, the creaking floors. A comfortable bed, when you have earplugs you can sleep.
