I was with a group of students that I was chaperoning for my son's school. It is a religious group and we were shocked to enter this hostel and see pics of nude people on the wall dimly lit all over by red ceiling lights! Fortunately, we only stayed one night and that was more than enough. The kids were...

you can't check-in after 10 p.m. and before 11 a.m., but it's not that you can't just check-in, there is nobody in the hostel to open a door! no staff at all!! the signs are poor, in the dark you barely see the name of the hostel, so it's quite hard to find it. i came after 22.00 the first...

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
