The odysseehostel is a perfect example of european spirit! Its hip, its cool, put a lot of effort into it, and keep the backpackersmentality alive. Berlin is an extreme hip place, making this hostel extra great! Besides, its really cheap! Which gives u more money to drink! :). I loved it!

I stayed with two friends for three nights. We had our own room -nice and clean, the common toilets and showers are clean as well. The hostel lounge really lives, lots of travellers, cheap bottle beer and a billiard table as well! On Saturday night there was a lots of noise (dance music), but I guess that's Berlin:-) Location could...

At first my friend and I were unsure about this location. We didn't like the area and there were no people around, however when we opened our eyes we realised that the hostel was very clean, breakfast delicious, lots of friendly people to go out with and chat an the location is only a 100m from great strip of restaurants...

Loved this place. Stayed with 3 friends and myself and we all really enjoyed our time here, right near the trendy Kreuzberg area and walking distance to all the amazing clubs Berlin has to offer, walking distance to East side gallery and close to train stations also. Met really great people and the vibe of this place really helped that...

I have stayed in good hostels before but this was fantastic. Off the main road so no traffic noise, two streets away from all the restaurants and bars you could need, 1Euro for half litre Berliner beer, smoking area for when it rains, staff were great and really helpful with public transport. Cannot rave about this place enough! It is...

Most fun hostel we stayed at. We stayed in a co-ed dormitory style 8 person room. We met a lot of other travelers here and it was a lot of fun! Beds are twin bunk beds that look like they are from IKEA, but they are a bit bigger, more spacious, and really comfy. Sheets are provided for the bed....

The Globetrotter Hostel Odyssee offers a bargain, connecting and welcoming place to be. The check in is not the fastest one, but the beds are alright and you will always find a mate at your room to join the pool table in the lobby. It is located in the hip-alternative-suburb of Friedrichshain which offers bars, restaurants, club and more. Public...

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
