Very conveniently located near the Hauptbahnhof. Excellent breakfast each day. Friendly and very helpful staff. We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to travelling friends.

Best location

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Guest kitchen Cheap rates
Cons: Wifi is terrible
Firstly It is Near the sightseen bus stop and the central train station which makes it a good location. Secondly it is very affordable and they got friendly staff who will help tourists navigate around berlin. On the other hand it is not recommended for a family as there are lots and lots of young students coming in from Europe (school trips etc) which makes it a busy and noisy enviornment.

Cheap - Sleep - Leave

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Not much
Cons: A lot!
Location: Location - good
If you just need any type of sleep...just to get through the night, this is just fine. You are paying a lot of $ for that, but then again you are in the centre of Berlin. The room is extra tiny, beds are just okay if you exclude the pillow. Pillows are more like a massive bag of soft wool that cant do its job! Bathroom is not great with water going everywhere. I would look else were for a better option. I will not comment on the staff as they just did not impress me. Lifts take hours to get you to the room - we walked to the 6th floor several times!!

Ordinary Hotel

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Yes, it needs some upgrading including hotel rooms and common areas.
Location: Very close to all important sites in Berlin, many are within walking distance.
Just an ordinary hotel very popular with youth travellers due to its convenient location right next to main train station. This hotel is okay for just a few days stay but nothing special about it.

Good Location

Posted Aug 7, 2014
Pros: Location, friendly staff, kitchen and roof terrace. Always kept very clean, and room was serviced daily.
Cons: Sometimes we had to wait a while for staff to appear at the bar. Wifi, though free, dropped in and out a bit.
Location: Perfect location for walking to the major sights in Berlin, and also very close to the transport hub of Central Station and airport buses.
Friendly staff at reception around the clock. Decent sized room and bathroom, and great to have a communal kitchen area downstairs for guest use. We were out most of the day, and it was very easy to walk or access transport to where we wanted to go from this hotel. It was nice to have a few drinks in the bar when we returned at night. This is the best location if you need to get a long distance train to somewhere else at the end of your stay, as the station is just across the road, the hotel will store your luggage if needed, or you can just check out and hang out at the bar/cafe if you prefer.

This is a hostel, not a 3 star hotel

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: The location is excellent, walking distance from all points of interests and the main train station.
Location: Very close to all most important points of interest and the main train station.
Expedia sold me this as a 3 star hotel but turned out to be a hostel. Rooms are tiny, there is no air-conditioning, beds are very small and uncomfortable, and have no chairs or tables (except for some tiny stools). Perhaps this is OK for a hostel, but unacceptable for a 3 star hotel. The allegedly is a WiFi in the hotel, but if you are lucky you may get your pages downloaded at the rate of 3 pages per hour (that is IF you are lucky).

Terrible stay, inconfortable.

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Nothing.
Location: Near To the train station
It was vert bad experiance because the hotel was full with more of 200 students. The lobby was full, the restaurant was always full, elevators. The room was very small without space and the air conditioner did not work properly. In the flirts night I asked for a biger room but IT was deneid.

Hotel close to Berlin Hbf

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Pros: Close to Berlin Hbf which is like a large shopping mall with cafes, restaurants & supermarkets.
Cons: Hotel should not release booking for room required for 3 people.
Location: Next to Berlin Hbf & public transport including Hop On/Off tourist buses.
Budget hotel that served the needs of travellers requiring to be close to central railway station. Room was hot & extremely small for 3 people and we could hardly move.
