10/10 would recommend
Perfect hostel for a solo traveller! Reception staff were lovely. Could hire bikes for €12 a day. Immaculately clean throughout. Bed was comfortable with a huge locker for belongings and a personal cubby hole with USB chargers. Hostel was in a great location with the underground and tram station right outside. Offered free walking tours which I did and really enjoyed. Very secure with keycard access required everywhere. Had its own bar with micro brewery where I made some friends. I really enjoyed it there for my first time as a solo traveller.

Best hostel in Berlin
Ive stayed in a lot of hostels in Berlin but this is by far the best. Spotlesslessly clean, comfy beds, great facilities and even relatively quiet. Area around has a lot going on and offers all you need for a short trip. Will definitely be back.
