For a solo woman traveler this hostel was great. I got a private room which was very basic but comfortable. Plenty of space to spread out, a big window and a safe. The shared bathrooms and showers were a bit far down the hall for me and very basic - but clean. They have towel rental but no hair dryers...

We stayed in a private double room at the hostel. It was modern and very clean with a safe. You get a free small beer in their pub, there is a cafe, Internet, locker facilities and excellent service at reception. We watched the fireworks on New Year's Eve from the hotel terrace with a free glass of bubbly. The area...

A simple and basic hostel with high quality service and cleanness. The location was brilliant. A very friendly staff let me check in immediately, when I arrived earlier than expected. The room was comfortable extremely clean. About 10 rooms in the same floor/corridor, sharing 2 showers and 4 toilets. I shared them with 2 other rooms in a quiet holiday...

I had decided last minute to stay at the Circus Hostel at the recommendation of Euro Hotel's bartender. I was certainly glad I spoke with her because the area surrounding Circus Hostel and Hotel was exactly what I was looking for. Cool restaurants, bars and shopping. The hostel itself was really cool and people were great upon check-in. The only...

Our stay began with a skype phone call with one of the staff who spoke great English and was able to give us the ins and outs of what to expect for new years! Over the next few months it was a hard task organising 16 friends flying in and out at different times and dates, yet wanting to share...

Had only been to one other hostel before this when staying in Berlin but to be honest I can't see it getting much better than this. Staff are lovely and make check in a breeze. The rooms are clean and spacious...probably the best I've seen. Really good atmosphere, everyone staying there was really friendly. They also have a cafe for...

We stayed in a 4 bed room with shared bath. It was clean and really spacious, huge windows in the rooms and NO BUNK BEDS (in our room, there are bunk beds in larger rooms). The little restaurant was closed when we were there but the menu looked great. The hostel bar was easily my favorite of our whole trip....

A friend and I could afford to each get a private room here. Closet size, yet with a large window, and high ceilings, it was a classy space. Shared bathrooms. When I lost my charger, they sold me another at desk, also had stamps I could by for mail to US. Great spaces for meeting other trAvelers, walking distance to...

This hostel is awesome!! Need I say much more? Well yes, but that does sum it up pretty well. This was the second time I stayed there with my mam (who is 72) and strangely we were booked into the same room as we were 4 years ago. But I have stayed here other times with my partner and once...

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
