4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2011

Odyssee was ideal for our school group of 8 students aged 15 - 17: clean dorms and bathrooms, well organised, good breakfast, well located, and with the fantastic bonus of washing machines and a large kitchen with a communal table seating 12. Kitchen is open from 10 - 10pm. Hostel is open all the time, nice guests and atmosphere. It is a converted warehouse with stud walls on each level - sound travels! Beware their cancellation policy which is not stated on the website and inaccurate in the hostel notices: Despite giving 48 hrs notice of one cancellation (in an 8 dorm room!) we were unexpectedly required to pay on arrival 75% of the full rate for the whole stay for that person. As we refused, the students' breakfasts were cancelled for 2 mornings. Appeals to reception staff and manager ( via email, as he is not often around) were eerily stonewalled. Also not to be missed is when Dean is on reception, an experience of DDR-style customer relations rarely encountered by pampered western travellers and as a result much enjoyed by other hostellers ( eventually).

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 be more central, but the friendliness of the staff will make you forget it. Reccomended!
