We stayed at Sunflower for 3 nights. In a double bed room. It wasn't what we expected,but it wasn't bad. The auto-sell machine doesn't work and I recommend not to try it, unless you want to waste your money.

Not so well localised, but the facilities are pretty good, and the public transport does the trick. The atmosphere is really good in the bar and the beds are pretty isolated from it, so you get a very silent room. The breakfast is not included and I think could improve. Also the neighbourhood is not the best, but it's safe...

Dear Eduardo, Thank you very much for your positive feedback and the 5 stars. About your more ngeative points (location and breakfast): - We are located in Berlin Friedrichshain, one of Berlin’s central districts, neighboured by Prenzlauer Berg, Mitte and Kreuzberg. Friedrichshain itself is known for its young and creative vibe, due to its enormous amount of bars, cafés, galleries,...

Amazing breakfast that lasts until noon. The bar downstairs was a lot of fun and very good prices on the drinks. Set in a...

Facilities were ok; washing machine and dryer (dryer took AGES to dry clothes and shrunk most, washing machine water was far too hot & dye ran), cheap breakfast at 3e each (we didn't opt for this as it was just continental), rooms were reasonably comfortable but a little cold at night, bathrooms weren't the cleanest with one of the ladies...

I think Sunflower hostel is the place to stay in Berlin. It is on a great location if you want to go clubbing and has excellent connection with the sights of the city. Treptow park is very near, so all in all a great location. Hostel is full of young people willing to meet new people and talk to them,...

Vibrant, cozy, and super nice hostel. Located on the border of Friedrichshein and Kreuzberg 300 meters from the Berghain club. So the location is very very central if you are interested in the more "hip" areas of Berlin. The reception is also a bar where you can get drinks for a good price. The common area around the reception is...

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
