The Helter Skelter Hostel is most centrally located in the heart of Berlin. It is very close to the old town, the sights and the museums. We are near to the Potsdamer Platz, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. Almost all sights are within walking distance. Within 10 minutes by public transport you can reach the Check Point Charlie or the Jewish Museum.

The Hostel is not only in the middle of Berlin's Nightlife area, but just a few metres away from the famous 'Tacheles' - probably the most famous origin of the new berlin.

But you don't have to leave the hostel to party!

Hang out in the Reception, have dinner with new friends, party all night and chill during the day. Please note, that especially on weekends it might get loud.
