  1. Monika From Lithuania On January 30, 2012

    The staff are very professional, they can solve any problems and get the best suggestions. I love the idea that in big room (8 beds) we have the bath-room with shower. By the way, the view from the windows at 526 room is absolutely great. You see all the train station and night Berlin.I love this hostel, if they were little bit expensive (15 Euros for bed) with the breakfast in that payment, it would one of my favourite hostel:)

  2. Naoya From Japan On March 25, 2011

    The room where I stayed was clean and large. And What is most important is so near Zoo staition. So it was so easy to find this hotel. But instead of it, trains are noisy all night... In Berlin trains are served even around midnight. But if you bear only this, this hostel will be a your good choice.

  3. Leonardo From Brazil On January 10, 2011

    Really good

  4. beatriz From Brazil On August 16, 2010

    All people in the reception were very rude, had no young spirit for helping and making fun as you expect in a hostel. We had several problems regarding to pay, to rent towels, sheets, everything was complicated at the helpdesk.

  5. Cristian From Romania On August 10, 2010

    OK regarding location, price, breakfast, some of the staff.. not OK regarding the rooms - very little space or not at all, can be really cramped, the windows can't be open, etc.

  6. Jun From China On February 8, 2010

    It's not far from Hauptbahnhof and is located closely in the station of Zoologischer Garten. That's why it is noisy in the whole night. No free internet.

  7. Rik From Netherlands On January 11, 2010

    Bigger hostel, therefore not that cosy and more difficult to meet people, but okay for a city-trip with friends. Location near center. Beds are really noisy and worn out, as are sheets+pillows.

  8. Jing From China On November 30, 2009

    Considered the position and price at same time,it should be the best hostel I had been.wishes!

  9. Aavo From Estonia On November 27, 2009


  10. Marta From Italy On April 12, 2009

    excellent popsition:the hostel is sorrunded by pubs,fast foods,the zoo garden,metro stations (S-bahn,U-bahn) and shopping malls.It's fairly clean!There is a nice terrace bar in the hostel... unfortunatly the blond girl of the staff is very unpleasent,not kind at all!however I suggest it to young people!!

  11. panagiotis From Greece On January 1, 2009

    internet too expensive...

  12. DENISE From England On December 1, 2008

    The service was good and we were very happy with the location.

  13. Jean From USA On November 7, 2008

    Convenient to Banhof, great breakfast, and great price.

  14. Kevin From France On October 13, 2008

    Staff not nice at all, really poor quality rooms

  15. Amr From Egypt On August 19, 2008

    The hostel has a very good position. It is close to almost everything. You can make a great tour on foot starting there. It is a great place to stay in if you are planning a short visit to Berlin.

  16. Andreas From Denmark On July 29, 2008

    Nicely placed at Zoologisher Garden trainstation. 5 min walk to Kurfurstendam if you are in to international shops and prices. Main attraction at this place gotta be the terasse with bar and the cool atmosphere untill 12.00pm wheres got to shut down because of noice. Its not a good Bar area around the hostel, closes around bun since trainstation is right next , its allrigt. Cheepest price if you order from Have a nice stay :-)

  17. Josefine From Norway On July 29, 2008

    The only negative thing was that there was no airconditioning in the 10-bed room. It was too hot with that many people, even though I slept next too the open window.

  18. Tatiana From Brazil On July 22, 2008

    Its really cheap, but they charge you even if you use their cutlery and napkins. The worst hostel Ive ever been.

  19. Alex From USA On July 6, 2008

    This was a bit of a change from the A&O in Dresden. The location was great, if you don't mind taking the U-bahn or S-bahn at least 2 stops to get places (I just bought the Berlin City card A&O offers, so no problem there). The staff, for the most part, did not particularly want to be there, and I felt more like a number on a computer at this hostel than I have ever felt in even a chain of hotels. The rooms were ok, but, as they weren't cleaned often, the bathroom got kind of nasty. Fairly good value for the money, but next time, I think I'll be paying four Euros more to stay someplace else.

  20. Lucely From Mexico On July 3, 2008

    they didnt respect my reservation... make me wait a lot and at the end i pay more than the price it says here... it was a cheap place actually BUT they need to be clear (whit the prices and the online reservations) i think... the location is good and the place is ok..
