    I liked to have internet access for free inside the hostel.

    It's really a "no thrills" accomodation, but you pay what you get for!

    Fabulous

    Located well at Prenzlauer Berg, nice bed illumination (you can choose a color for your mood).

    A liitle bit more of comfort would be nice.

    Staff was friendly and helpful.

    I feel it's a bit unfair to give grades right now. As a hostel, I found the place good, and might return. However, should I have known while making a reservation that there is a facade renovation going on, I wouldn't have made any. This is expected to last another month or so. I recommend Aurora hostel later on this year:)

    Location was fine - rest fair enough for hostel and one night stay

    when booking shared bathroom was not clearly indicated - we were suprosed by it upon arrival

    Room was ok and quite clean.

    When I reserved the room, I thought that there would be own bath. The Booked.net website was quite unclear, and I didn't watch from the Aurora's own site. However, the common bathroom was ok and there wasn't queue at all.

    Great staff, clean facility, comfortable/basic lodging. Exceeded my expectations of a hostel!

    Fabulous

    Staff is friendly and welcoming. Many rooms, with good availability. Well located in the neighborhood. Easy and safe access at all hours. Wlan available. Clean and well maintained.

    One of the noisier streets during traffic hours, though it is better than Schonhauser allee. Wlan connection is not stable, not so much bandwidth for the number of guests.

    Good

    This Hostel is all about the location. In one of the best neighborhoods of Berlin for bars and eateries. 20 min walk to Alexander Platz. Rooms are simple clean and quiet.

    Limited check in hours 8am-10pm and no communal hostel vibe.

    The friendliness of the staff, the position

    Nothing relevant only some noise of people returning late at night

    Fabulous

    Located not far from the Ubahn station in the city centre. Friendly staff, eager to help and answer questions. Clean and not noisy.Would come back.

    Superb

    The hostel was more like a budget hotel, which was great as I wanted somewhere to come back to at the end of busy day's sightseeing that was clean, quiet and relaxing. It was a lovely and quiet spot to stay, there was never a queue for the bathrooms, and the room was large and spacious

    The only slight downside was the lack of a kitchen area - it would have been nice to have access to a kitchen. It was also the only hostel I stayed in during my trip that didnt offer some sort of breakfast
