Qi T. Solo travelers Malaysia, June 7, 2015
Clean but in dodgy area

near the train station, clean, opposite/ near East side gallery
Everything was fairly clean. Only beef was it was situated in a dodgy area. It is near the train station, just across the road and the East Side Gallery. At the end of the gallery, there are a lot of cafes and bars for food. Wifi is only in the reception common area.

Melinda R. Couples Australia, September 19, 2014

Location, clean and only had to share a bathroom with one other room.
Location is good but no elevator and we were a few floors up. Train station is very close and there are supermarkets and a shopping centre near by but supermarket with cold drinks closed around 8.30pm. Not the place to meet people as wifi is only available in reception area which is quite small. Staff were not that helpful in that they couldn't assist with information. The hostel advertised a picture that looked like there was an area you could sit and drink however this seemed to be non existent. We also requested a double room and were given two single beds that hadn't even been pushed together. Good for what you paid though.

Interesting Experience

Close to the train station, close to the East-Side Gallery, Interesting Concept for a Hotel
My room was quite small (8 square metres or so) but clean and well-lit. The staff were very friendly.
Magdalena M. Solo travelers Netherlands, September 20, 2013
A pleasant stay in a clean and cosy room

Clean, Cosy, Wifi in my room
I had a very pleasant stay in Ostel Hostel and felt quite at home. This was my second time. This time I booked a single room with my own bathroom. (Last year I shared a bathroom). You get your own key to use the private bathroom, which is situated at the corridor, but that's fine. Room was clean and cosy, with nice DDR details. One big plus: Because my room was in the same building as the lobby I had access to Wifi in my room. Also the hostel is near Ostbahnhof, the Berlin Wall, a supermarket (open till 22:00) and club Berghain is just around the corner.
Magdalena M. Solo travelers Netherlands, August 31, 2012
Nice and cheap hostel in DDR style.

Nice and cheap hostel. Clean and simple room. Right behind Ostbahnhof train station.
i had a really pleasant stay. my room was small and simple, but clean and cosy with a nice bed. the bathroom i had to share was no problem, and was also clean. there is a lobby with wifi and you can leave your luggage in a locked room after checking out. very handy if you have some time left and want to see something in the city before you leave berlin. club berghain is just around the corner, if you are looking for a cool place going out. ostbahnhof is very close to the hostel, where you can also find a supermarket and some places for take-away food. my room was on the 6th floor, with no elevator. so that could be difficult if you have problems with climbing stairs. i'm sure i will come back to this hostel.
Nightlife Tip: Club Berghain is just around the corner.
Richard R. Solo travelers Switzerland, July 2, 2012
Great location

Large yellow building right behind Ostbahnhof (East Station), within minutes by S-Bahn from Alexander, 18 mins form Schoenefeld/Brandenburg Airport
Dorms, romoms with shared bath or enbsuite, Very basic rooms, good for backpackerts, beds are better than sleeping on the floor, one towel 30x50 cm. If it was not for the location...
Travel tip: The large Ostbahnhof 30 mins from the hotel offers links by S-Bahn to allo corbers of Berlin, plus direkt rail links to major German cities and Poland etc., and has many snack bars, shops. The bakery next door was my breakfast place: good sandwiches and coffee at modest price. 10 mins by bus 1 4 to Grünwalder Stras/Warschauer Str. with lots of coloful hangouts for the evening.
