Just 2 stations away from Zoologische Garten (Berlin Zoo) and all major sites such as Brandenburg Tor, Checkpoint Charlie and Kurfrstendamm are reachable by subway or very frequent buses.The airports and the main Trainstation (Hauptbahnhof) can be reached within the hour from this hostel. Situated on a sidestreet away from the mainstreet also means away from traffic and noise makes the stay quite and pleasant.

The dorms are located on 3 different floors ontop of the reception and have 3- or 4-beds (singles and bunkbeds) in each room. The rooms are not big but can handle guests and baggage for all who stay. Secure access with door-code and keys (there is a security deposit of 5 for the key that is returned on check-out). There are common bathrooms on each floor with showers and toilets. Restrooms are facing the backyard for privacy. The hostel has handicap access to the dorms through an elevator next to the reception.
The common room is a chillout area at the reception, rebuilt from having been a car repair shop. The electric winch is still mounted on its rail in the ceiling! Here the breakfast buff is served caf style every day of the week for 5. Throughout the day there are refreshments served at very reasonable prices.At the reception there is also a small area with lockers and PC for free web-browsing (yes, internet is free and available throughout the are with Wifi.
Fresh new concept hostel with a family feel, run by 2 brothers and with their mom preparing great breakfast buffet every morning. Very reasonably priced and clean bed-sheets are included in the price. Combined with all the anemities and speedy Wifi makes it an ideal short term stay for the weary business travellers as well as students and globetrotters.Opened early October 2014 so everything feels fresh and new. As its so new it also means there are improvements being implemented continously so don't be surprised if there suddenly is a new cupboard or coat-hanger in the dorm.
