My visit in BerlinPosted Sep 29, 2013
Pros: It is a clean place and near the train station
Cons: The wifi was available just in the reception area, It would be better if the give access in the rooms.
Location: You can go from there to anywhere in Berlin, it is near the bus station
We found the hostel after taking the train from the bus station, the staff was friendly and we had no problem in check in. After the check out we left our bags in the bag room and everything was fine.

Low price stay - definitely recommend !Posted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel/hostel mainly youth element. Well organised, clean and secure. Excellent position,4 minutes from Ostkreuz main station, so ready access to central berlin for approx. 3 GBP. Facilities good, however location is in main student area so lots and lots of cafes and bars, which do not ever seem to close! Absolute must for 16-30, not sure for families but would think okay. So in summary, great location, good accommodation, superb links to rest of Berlin, and lots of fun in neighbourhood. And oh so cheap!! We were attending the Rush gig at the O2, which was simply wonderful...

It does the jobPosted Jun 3, 2013
Cons: Personnel at the reception. Overall they do their job, but not a single thing else
Location: A bit far away from the main attractions but in a nice area
It does the job. I stayed with my parents a girlfriend in two separate rooms and overall it was ok for the price we paid. It's a bit uncomfortable to use the Sbahn every day to go to the main attractions but nothing that would kill you. Pretty convenient to go to and from schoenfeld airport. On the other hand the neighborhood is very nice with lots of cheap and nice options to eat around. Live area but not very noisy (and I had a room facing a main street). The only bad comment I would give is about the staff in the reception. They do their job, but nothing else. Not many recommendations and I had my doubts about the level of English of one of the staff members. I asked for a very simple thing and he did not do it right. Basically I told him: the fourth member of our party is arriving later today. Can I leave the key to the room with you so that you allow her to come in? This is my room number, this her name. By the look on his face I knew he was not understanding, so I ask him if he was. He said yes. Result: had to come all the way back from downtown because the would not let her in. Apart from that small incident, we had a really nice stay.

Clean, cheap and centralPosted Jan 9, 2013
Really clean and comfortable. We had a double room with bathroom which came with all the basics (towels, warm bedding) but nothing more, as you'd expect for the price. Great east end location. Only complaint would be how the cleaning staff barged into the room with a cigarette in her mouth 15 minutes before check-out, demanding to know when we were leaving - if you need late check-out (which they offer), make sure to clear this ahead of time!

Convenient location, but poor servicePosted Dec 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
The location was close to an S-Bahn station and made it easy to get to Alexanderplatz as well as other great locations within minutes. However, the service provided by the staff was substandard. Most of the staff would answer our questions, but they did so with a very rude tone. They gave us the impression that we were interrupting their day and did not make us feel welcome. We also had to put our own linens on our beds and pay to rent towels. I have been to various A&O hostel locations and this was by far the poorest level of service we have ever received. I would not stay there again. I don't want to be made to feel unwelcome when i am paying to rent a room for 4 days somewhere.

Good quality, cheap hostelPosted Oct 23, 2012
Pros: Low cost, clean, practical.
Cons: Bathroom towels were not replaced in the 3 days we were staying there! (Also, the clock in reception showing the time in the UK was an hour out).
Location: In a very quiet area, so no problems getting to sleep.
I'm not used to staying in 'hostel' accomodation, but I found this place pleasantly comfortable. In a nice, quiet location, but with good transport networks close by. The only one criticism would be that the bathroom towels were not replaced once in the 3 nights we were staying. Otherwise this is a good hostel for the low price.

Good hostel, but it is a hostelPosted Sep 5, 2012
Limp matresses, small dorms, one plug socket between everyone and the standard drilling that seems to take place in all hostels when you're trying to have a hangover lie in - it's very much a hostel. That said, it's very clean, good hot showers, a decent bar (a little expensive though), pool table, friendly staff and it's in a really accessible location. Also provides shower gel and toilet roll. I've found myself in some real hell holes at this price point, A&O is not among them. What you'd expect when you stay in a hostel, but cleaner.

WOULD DEFO GO BACK!!!Posted Feb 27, 2010
BERLIN IS THE BEST CITY I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO!! Woop woop!!. The hostel was very reasonable, we had a private room and everything was as expeceted. Clean, had single beds but could push them together to make a double. Location was brillant right next to main station and in a very trendy area of berlin. Only thing was lack of spirit within the hostel, staff seemed like they didnt want to be there and activities within the hostel were not promoted well. Over all - VERY PLEASED :) !!!!!!!!!!
