    Would recommend, and not just for the excellent water pressure.

    The room smelled like something that even after two nights, we could not put our finger on. It was less unpleasant than strange, however. The beds, duvets and pillows were all comfortable, and the 24 hour reception was so helpful! Free maps were available, and employees were more than happy to go over the quickest route for you to any local highlight, and to point out any other nearby points of interest. Close proximity to a metro stop, though quite a walk from the main bus station (we opted to take a taxi, which cost us 20 euros). The bar in the hostel was nice but not too rowdy, and the walls were thick enough to allow for a quiet night of sleep provided your roommates behaved. Towels, linens, and pillows were all provided, and for 4 addition euros each morning you could also get breakfast. Lounge area had illogically-arranged furniture, with the most comfortable chairs oddly on a stage overlooking the eating area, and was not well-lit for reading outside of the small couch area. But it did offer a number of books (including tour books) for perusal if you felt so inclined. The water pressure in the showers was excellent and quite hot! The hand soap was also weirdly nice. Free wifi was efficient, and computers were available for use for a fee. Located in a less nice area of East Berlin, but does not feel unsafe and is reasonably well-lit. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy theme made us want to read the book!

    If you stay at this hostel, Fire Bar is right around the corner (within a five minute walk) and is a great way to spend a calmer night on the town. There's also a really cool graphic bookstore called Neurotitan that is located in an alley covered in beautiful urban art and graffiti about fifteen minutes away on foot. About a twenty minute (and very manageable) walk from the Berlin Wall and free museum, and another ten minutes to bars, shops and restaurants in a busier section of East Berlin. Would go again.

    Our Berlin adventures began in the least interesting way possible - after arriving at our hostel in the middle of the night, we took the loveliest showers in the world and then crashed hard. We woke up at 10:30am (incomparably luxurious after days of sleep deprivation), then made a plan while Em perched on the edge of my bed and we ate a leisurely …

    This trip actually began a few days ago, when my best friend/platonic soul mate arrived in Paris, then trained to meet me in Geneva before we both whisked ourselves away on an overnight train to Amsterdam. At first glance, it sounded like an excellent plan - busy but efficient, tight but doable. But there were a number of ways this could have been …
