Every time an Agoda customer checks out of a hotel we send them an email asking them to write a review of their stay. This is the only way reviews can be submitted. Every review must then be approved by our content team before being posted on the Agoda website. Therefore, unlike many other travel sites, ALL Agoda reviews are certified and genuine.

Great location. Helpful, nice staff. Clean/comfy.
Wonderful location. Spacious, spotless room. Nice staff. Breakfast, Christmas Gluhwein and Waffle incldued in the price.
The location of the hostel is right next to the Mohrenstr. U-Bahn station (stairs only at entrance next to the hostel). The hostel is 1-2 blocks from the Stadtmitte U-bahn station entrances, and a big shopping complex on the corner of Friedrichstrasse and Mohrenstrasse. The hostel is 2 blocks from the incredible Fassbender & Rausch chocolate store with chocolate themed restaurant/cafe on the 2nd floor, and 3 blocks from a great concert venue and Gendarmenmarkt.
A taxi costs around 10 euros from the Hauptbanof to the hostel. The hostel's public transit directions include transit via a transfer at Friedrichstrasse to Stadtmitte. However, currently, the line is disrupted and one has to take a bus for part of the journey. So, U-bahn, bus, U-bahn. Do-able, but not first choice if one has a few Euros to spare. The discounted price of 4 single transit tickets (good for 2 hours but not round trips) bought at one time is 8.40 Euros.
We did not try the bus connection. However, if one is not pressed for time, one could also change the route one took from the Hauptbanof to the hostel, to avoid the missing portion of the Friedrichstrasse to Stadtmitte connection, using a different transfer station.
The hostel is mopped daily, so is pretty clean. The bedding was comfy and just the right weight. There was plenty of hot water (you had to be careful not to scald) in the shower, and the toilet in the room worked great. Facility-wise, no complaints. However, you should know that the wifi passwords are only good for 12 hours, and constantly require one to log in again and again. This seems to be a common German phenom. We have seen it at luxury hotels to hostels. But, only in Germany, on this trip. It seems to be security related.
The Mohrenstrasse U-Bahn station allows one to go directly to Alexanderplatz, which is a major shopping and christmas market area. Alexanderplatz is also a large transit hub. So, the hostel's station is very well connected.
Don't miss going to Fassbender & Rausch., if only to ogle the chocolate sculptures The restaurant/cafe upstairs serves excellent food, for reasonable prices. The hot chocolate is a little steep, but the fantastic desserts are reasonably priced. Two ginger-cream hot chocolates and two delicious gorgeous desserts ran around 16 Euros.
