Location is great, literally right next to U-Bahn and S-Bahn. Shopping at and around Neukoelln Arcaden is within 10 minutes walking distance. Neighborhood is mainly immigrants, so it doesn't feel quite like Germany, but that's true with Berlin in general because of how international the city is.
Hostel staffs are very helpful and understanding. I stayed in an 8-bed, and the layout made the room feel spacious. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and a locker assigned for each person (locked by the room keycard). The bar downstairs is great, with ample seating for guests inside and outside.
Since it is summer, there is a fan running inside the bedroom to keep the temperature cooler. That said, with the S-Bahn running outside the window and running fan inside, if you are a light sleeper, you will need a pair of ear plugs which the hostel provide for free.
