Sunflower Hostel Berlin is located in East Berlin, just a few blocks away from the city center. The hostel is extremely vibrant and lively, and is known for its young and creative vibe. The hostel has a very friendly and motivated staff, a bar, laundry faculties, and an-all-you-can-eat breakfast.
The hostel is located in the neighborhood Friedrichshain, which is well known for its young and creative atmosphere. The hostel is situated between plenty of bars, clubs, cafes, and galleries. The neighborhood is very friendly and outgoing, so you feel very safe being there. The hostel is very easy to find -- it's located right on a corner and has a large "Sunflower Hostel" sign up on the building. Public transit is nearby and it only takes about five minutes to get to the major tourist areas in Berlin, such as the Brandenburg Gate.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms are open and fairly large, and are kept very clean. The rooms accommodate up to eight guests at once, and they're very cozy and comfortable. The rooms are cleaned daily, and so are the bathrooms. The showers are in a room that doesn't have a lock on the door, so you can feel uncomfortable. The toilets are in their own separate rooms, so there is more security. The showers water pressure is horrible, and the temperature is too cold, but that's the only negative about the hostel.
For common spaces, the hostel has an open lobby and a bar; both spaces are very bright and artistic, to match the lively neighborhood the hostel is situated in. Most guests hang out in the bar, so it's very easy to meet new people from around the world and to just grab a drink. In the mornings, the sitting area in the lobby can get pretty crowded, especially because there's an all-you-can-eat buffet every morning.
Sunflower Hostel is an amazing hostel to stay at in Berlin. Friedrichshain is a great neighborhood, especially if you're young. The hostel has a positive, bright atmosphere, and the staff are always willing to help you with anything. There's free Wi-Fi, discounted prices to local clubs, free lockers, and plenty of other great services. If you're young and traveling on a budget, this is the hostel for you.
