“A Pleasant Surprise - Not the 'Youth Hostel' I Had Feared”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

I was booked in here for a conference and was terrified to see it in "Specialty Lodging" as a youth hostel. I was pleasantly surprised as although the rooms are a bit spartan, it was very new and modern and comfortable. The location is a little out of the way (and I think actually straddles the old Berlin Wall) - but the Bernauer Strasse tube stop is relatively close and the buses and trams stop right out front. It did get a bit crowded in the breakfast rooms with large groups of kids when I was there - but luckily I guess their chaperones keep an eye on them at night (or they book them on different floors) as at nighttime it was nice and quiet other than a bit of street noise. For the price, especially in a big European city, it's an excellent value.

It's very nice hotel, fresh and youth. Located next to the metro Bernauer Straße, but find it not so easy. Pleasant area.
Breakfast is normal, staff at reception are friendly.
Rooms are furnished with very poorly, no TV and hair dryer, no frills. Also in the bathroom did not work heating, and it was terribly cold in October.

Stayed here with my girlfriend over new year 2010/11 for 3 nights. Firstly the staff are really helpfull & pleasant & are willing to go out of there way to help. Very clean & bright throughout.There is a small bar on reception so you can take drinks & snacks up to the room if you wish. Rooms are small but clean & fresh and ideal for what we needed for a short break. The only downside was towels are only changed every 4 days. However I am sure if a request was made for a change every 2 days there would not be an issue. Bernauer Strasse U-bahn station is a 5min walk which links straight into Alexanderplatz after 3 stops (5mins). The hotel is also within 5 mins walking distance of a number of restaraunts & around 5-10mins are a number of small but nice bars. Overall we were concerned of the location of this hotel before we arrived but once there you realise there is so much to do in Berlin in all directions its very central! Breakfast is good too with great service. Great place to stay!!

Reviewed 17 October 2010

I stayed here for 3 nights in October 2010 and wasn't sure what I'd let myself in for while walking through Mauerpark itself to reach the hotel (which is predominantly a skater's park). But I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival.

The hotel in general and the room were basic but very clean. The staff were very helpful and fluent in English. The location was slightly out of the way, if you intend to do lots of sightseeing and want to be in the centre of town but the Prenzlauer Berg area is densely populated with restaurants and cafes, so you'll be spoilt for choice in terms of dinner or stopping off for coffee & cake.

It's situated probably half way between two U-bahn stations (Bernauer Str - 7 mins walk and Eberswalder Str - 10 mins walk). So whilst the hotel was a little bit further out, it was easy to travel into the central areas and the area felt very safe for a female solo traveller.

On Sundays there is a big flea market practically opposite the hotel, so worth noting if you like market shopping.

Breakfast was great - the usual ham/cheese, breads, yoghurts, muesli, coffee/tea, juice, etc. I couldn't fault the place so all in all, thumbs up from me and what great value for money.

We recently travelled to Berlin as a young couple for a city break. The Hotel 4 Youth was perfect as an affordable choice of accommodation and as a base for exploring the city by day and night. As the hotel is brand new and well kept, it is spotlessly clean and very warm. Our double room had a bathroom with a bath and a power shower, lots of hot water and big windows. There is a bar but not a bustling atmosphere or anything like that at night, so most nights we took the underground (3 stops from the centre of East Berlin where we spent most of our break) into the centre and taxis were easy to come by at night and cost around 8 euros back to the hotel. However, there is also a great few streets just a 2 minute walk from the hotel which also have some amazing little bars and restaurants. The continental breakfast was great, especially the baskets of freshly baked rolls! We would definately stay here if we were to return to Berlin as it is so clean, great location and a nice mix of young people, older couples and families with children too.
