          Direct train from the airport (S9). Located 15 min away by tram from Alexanderplatz and main attractions. Clean dorms (some have lockers) and restrooms. Hot water in showers (no door though for intimacy). Bar (Alex and Amy were friendly)and restaurant. Breakfast not included.

          Went on a university trip with 35+ people.Only problems we found were the restaurant wasn't open in the evenings when we went and neither was the bar. The rooms were a good size and were all easily accessible. Does need a re vamp though!

          + Not in the center, but right at an S-Bahn and tramway station. + Clean and comfortable. Great staff, 24h reception. + Restaurant and bar on ground floor. - 6 electric sockets for 8 beds. - Not so intimate showers (simple curtain, no door).

          No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change
          than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
          that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
          the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
          crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
          once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
          there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have

          No, but you can pay and get one from the reception. Best to carry a quick dry ( to avoid hostel/ hotel bacteria).
