I don't have much experience when it comes to hostels but this is the least cosy hostel that I've ever stayed at. The decors are rather poor, which is such a disappointment cause I was expecting something with a little bit of taste. All the equipments, especially the showers and the fridges, are quite old and malfunctioning from time to...

My 2nd visit to the hostel for pride weekend and it was fantastic again. Comfortable beds and clean hostel under new management. When arriving please note that you don't push the main doorbell on the whole building panel. There's a special buzzer on the right at the bottom of the steps which connects to the owner who takes 5-10 minutes...

Oh Gay Hostel... Like other guys who stayed at the hostel, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect at a "gay hostel" but I was pleasantly surprised to meet a group of diverse people from all over the world. I stayed here for two weeks. While Berlin is a city known for its debauchery and hedonism, Gay Hostel is a...

Maybe I was lucky, but the guys here during my stay were amazing. We had some amazing nights out and it was also nice to have people to visit places with and hang out with during the day. The hostel is very very clean and the beds comfy. There's a Chinese restaurant in the same building and its very cheap....

Two of us stayed in the eight bed dorm, although there was only one extra in the room. We met travellers from all over the world and the hostel had a warm and friendly vibe. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were clean and of a good standard. A really pleasant surprise after reading some negative reviews.

I saved over 1,000 Euros by staying here for 10 nights. The other guests were 95% fantastic, which is a great ratio! I was often invited to dinner with other guests who did not know me & had invites to go out many items as well. I was SHOCKED how comfortable the beds were! The location is less than 5...

I've stayed in this hostel for a full week at the beginning of August and it was very good. Sure if you're looking for luxury then this place may not be for you but if you're a gay guy looking for a central place in Berlin with the possibility of meeting other gay guys, being close to the Berlin vibrant...

I went to this hostel with a friend for two nights.

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
