Perfectly placed, central hostel in Mitte
Posted Nov 1, 2016
Very easy transportation from both airports TXL & SXF, right next to oranienburgerstraße s-bahn station and the great bars and eateries in the area, a couple of stations away from the main ring of the transport system on one side, and alexanderplatz on the other.
There's a bit of a H2G2 theme throughout the hostel, brilliantly thought out artwork all over the place.
Our room had a shower and a sink this time, they were well placed and the sink unit doubles up as a modesty screen to stop you getting the full frontal from your roommate. The option of communal showers in the corridors is there, and they are well maintained and kept very clean. That's right folks, people have respect for each other and the facilities they use here :) double plus good
No beer or cooking in the rooms - fantastic idea, their bar downstairs is very competitively priced (though could do with a schwartzbier ;) ) and for the most parts the residents are pretty friendly - and the lounge is very comfortable. Very eclectic mix of music depending on who's on the bar/counter, heard everything from litfiba to pink floyd to new age mixes. Our room was above the bar/reception and was so well insulated that we couldn't hear anything from the bar after the tough decision to go and crash out was made.
The pizza/pasta place on the corner is top notch food wise, and the silberfisch bar is across the road (legendary).
This is an absolutely awesome place and I will definitely be back next year

thank you for your very positive review. We are over the moon that you recognized our theme from the Hitchhiker's Guide!! We are looking forward to seeing you next year, maybe we will even have Schwarzbier in our sortiment by then ;)
