I came to Berlin excited and left hugely dissapointed solely because of this hostel. There was Zero security here anyone can enter the Building and hostel without a key. My Wallet and Keys were Stolen as a result of this lack of security. I was told they couldnt do anything becasue the Building management company doesnt allow a hostel in...

I thought I was being maltreated, but reading the other reviews, it seems like an ongoing problem. This was the biggest letdown of our trip through Germany and quite frankly it spoiled Berlin for us, like it did for many others. To start off with, it has three different names that we came across, which is dodgy as can come....

I have had the fortunes of traveling around the world and this ranks at one of the worst places I've stayed at. I'll summarise in point form. 1. This place has multiple names making it hard to get a good review. We booked through booking.com where they somehow got a 7.5!!! Here are some of the names Booking.com. BNB near...

We checked in last Friday afternoon. The reception is very unfriendly. This girl wasn't used to guests. Very hostile attitude. The toilet door could not be locked. One of the windows in the room was broken (couldn't close). There are not enough showers. It has no decoration or ambiance and is basically equipped with minimal lights and a lack of...

The rooms here have recently been refurbished to a very contemporary feel, are clean and comfortable. The location is really quiet and peaceful which is great, there are restaurants within 2-3 mins walk and it is convenient for the U-bahn. However it is hard to find as it is in a residential / office building with no external signage, just...

Small rooms but all I needed for a 2-night stay with my boyfriend. All white decorated with a feeling of a perfect cleanliness. The location wasn´t of that kind we expected. It was very quiet and impossible to find a bar or restaurant nearby open after 10 pm. It was rather luxurious, residential, surrounded by embassies and high-end chain hotels....

The place is super well located, and it has everything you need. The rooms are as good as you need them I would recommended every time. The hotel has train station nearby, it is also close to the Berlin mall and the Brandenburg gate. The administration has around 4 people 2 of them don't speak English very well so the...

We booked a room at “Hostel near the Brandenburg Gate” in Berlin for 3 nights from August 07.2014 € 162. I received the confirmation email shortly after booking at 6 minutes after midnight on August 7. We arrived shortly after 13.00 because I wanted to show my friend around Berlin. Actually Wilhelmstr. 48 is almost a kilometre walk (800 m)...

Overall, this place is not bad and the location was very good. However, we were misled about the occupancy - we thought that we had exclusive access to our floor / apartment, when actually we were sharing with other people. The hostel manager had her office in our living room, which is a bit weird. Also, they tried to charge...

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.
