  4. Laura From Germany On November 30, -0001

    It's a really nice place to stay. It is cheap for that what they offer: centric location, free breakfast (at least at the time we were there) and they also receive you with free coffee or tee at your arrival. I strongly recommend it if you are going with friends or even if you are travelling alone, because you always get to know more people in your room or in the common room, where they also is a billard table. Not more than two minutes walking you can take the S-Bahn or the U-Bahn, but you can also walk around 20 minutes to the Brandenburger Tor or the famous street Unter den Linden. I do not regret any moment staying in this hostel!!
