Washroom so stinky smell armoniac. Can not stay in there even 1 minute . So terible.

4/5 Good

Clean, cheap hostel

Walking distance close to Brandenburg Gate. Decent common area. Clean rooms. No bar or nightlife at or near hostel. Had a friendly staff member on checkout who was more than happy to help us with some printing despite being busy at the time.

"Thoughts Become Things"

This is harsh, but I say it with love for folks thinking about staying here. The side of the building that says "Happy Hostel" also says "Thoughts Become Things." Well, someone is having scary, dirty, loud thoughts. This place has a lot of potential but it's definitely the sketchiest hostel I've stayed in and not even close to the cheapest. I can see the housekeeping staff work hard on cleaning each day, but I think given the volume of people, bathrooms should probably be done twice daily. Also, my sheets were taken off my *made* bed with personal items (i.e., obviously some is sleeping there) so I came back to a new person in my bed. Then I had to deal with moving rooms which made me super late to a show I was going to - wasted time = wasted money. At least there was a pillow in my second room. The best part of this place is the proximity to things. It was walking distance to the central train station (12 min walk), close enough to a helpful bus connection (3 minute walk) and there is a grocery store one block away. You can recycle plastic bottles at that story (Penny). Finally, the WiFi was useless. Zero exaggeration. Don't count on the internet working in your room or the common area. I ended up riding the busses where the WiFi actually worked. All that said, I made it out alive. Stay here if you're brave.

Pictures on the web are not of what you will see. Old building with old furniture. Every time you move on your bed or walk on the floor you will make noise. Don't recommend it to anybody.
