Fair 4.0
Cheap but would not recommend it
I needed a cheap place to spend few hours after arriving in Tegel Airport half past 10pm and before my train to Hildesheim at 4am. This hostel is walkable from Berlin Hbf. The reception is at the third floor. The lift is going under renovation for a week so that means I have to carry my heavy luggage walking up the stairs. I was glad that a man who was also going up with a luggage offered to help carry mine. I profusely thanked him until we reached the reception and later found out that he is the receptionist. My room was in the 4th floor and this time I had to carry my luggage. That was fine. In the early morning, another man was in the reception. I politely asked for two things: (1) to book me a taxi and (2) to assist me with my luggage. He would only do (1). He reasoned that he cannot leave the reception. Unlike when I arrived where it was full with young people drinking and chatting, there were nobody else in the reception except us. I was utterly disappointed. But in the end, he was obliged to help me since the taxi would come in 1-2 minutes. It would took me couple more minutes if I had to carry it myself. So, was still thankful. There should have been an advisory that the lift isn't working. Had I known it, I wouldn't book this in the first place. The toilets and showers are very dirty. Hallways are also noisy. I couldn't even sit up in the bed and I'm only 1.5m tall. There are better hostels which are cleaner, more comfortable beds and also cheap

Bathroom door was a little quirky as it was off the hinges. Shower also leaked water onto entire bathroom floor

We booked a double room with private bathroom and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. Staff was friendly and helpful. The corridor to the hostel door looked shady when we were first trying to locate the hostel, but we were glad the hostel turned out fine. There's also a convenience store nearby which was great.

Nice hostel. Clean and safe. My first hostel experience and won't be my last. Only reason for 4 stars is it isn't very social. Not the hostels fault, but the common room has no atmosphere and not many of the people staying were open to conversation. Also only had 2 female toilets and 2 showers for the whole floor. So trying to get a shower in the morning could take a while.

Ein schönes Hostel mit Vintage Flair und besonderen Charm. Sauber geführt. Service und Housekeeping Personal sind sehr freundlich. Der Biergarten mit Schöner Bepflanzung. Die Inhaber des Hostels sind dort anzutreffen und man spürt das ,das Hostel eine Seele hat. Bis zum nächsten Mal!

지난번의 경험이 마음에 들어 다시 투숙하게 되었습니다. 저렴하지만 시설은 어디에도 밀리지 않고 위치나 교통편까지 좋습니다. 지난번과 달리 락커에 본인의 자물쇠를 거는것이 아닌 프론트에서 보증금을 내고 키를 빌리는 방식으로 바뀌었습니다
