Deirdre : Green, clean, cycle friendly. Wonderful architecture - old and new. Modern, historic, vibrant and sombre.

Beautiful Hostel located in quiet area of Berlin but 10/15 minutes walk away from Podstamer Plz. Spotless bedrooms, WCs and shower rooms. Lovely Lounge and Bar area with excellent WiFi. Helpful and friendly employees. If Carlsberg made Hostels............... Would stay here again.
