Best Hostel I have stayed in, staff very friendly and the place was spotless. Great value for money, served food all day, free wifi, sports on tv. Wont definitely return to this hostel when in Berlin again.

That was actually my first time staying in a hostel with 4 strangers in the same room. The room was silent and the bed was comfortable. Bathromm and toilet was clean but i wish the bed cover smelt much more better. It is only 10 minutes far away to Frienrich str metro station and close to the museums around so...

Stayed there for 2 nights, it is a great location but terrible in all other respects:the staff behaving as if they weren't employed in customer business, rip off breakfast, noisy rooms and above all - it is dirty and mattrasses with holes in them gave me the worst sleeping experience of my life. We warned the staff but they didnt...

Room was very clean and bed comfortable. Wifi worked well throughout the building. Location was ideal for me doing the marathon, just one stop via public transport to reach the start of the race at Branderburg Gate. Pretty much all of Berlin is easy accessible from this hostel by public transport. Staff were all nice and helpful. Probably the only...

Our room was broken into and they STOLE EVERYthing. Please don't go here. It was an inside job which even the police confirmed. It was the worst experience of our amazing trip! Staff didn't say sorry and was very rude about the situation. Cant tell you enough how not safe it is.

I stayed in the Baxpax downtown hostel for 4 nights in late August. The 8 bed I stayed in was very spacious and we had our own shower and toilet (in different rooms which made sure you never had to wait to pee while someone was showering!) Reception was manned 24 hours, there was a lovely outdoor area, rooftop bar...

The hostel has a perfect location, close to subway and place to eat. The room was clean and organised, and staffs are friendly. There is not kitchen there, so if you want to cook you need to go to another hostel walking for about 20/25 minutes or taking the subway. Also you have to pay 2,50 for bedding. The wi-fi...

This hostel is in a good central location, it is 2 minutes from a metro station and just down the road from a main shopping street. The hostel itself is cool and stylish with a busy bar, games room, outdoor seating area and lots of communal space. They play good music and it is a good place to pre drink...

The hostel felt more like a hotel but it was still very nice with friendly staff. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. However we did find it particularly difficult to socialise and meet new people, with the upstairs bar closed there wasn't that many social opportunities for backpackers. But overall a nice experience.

Plenty of areas to chill if you arrive before check-in, and a cafe/restaurant/bar with friendly staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with plenty of private bathrooms (a luxury in a hostel), both of which were cleaned during our stay. Nice wide windows that open out over the street, and the road below is not noisy, which was great. General...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
