More about a&o Berlin Friedrichshain

More about a&o Berlin Friedrichshain

a&o Berlin Friedrichshain is a very large hostel with a wide range of rooms in the former DDR district, near plenty of bars and restaurants. A popular backpacker location, the dorms are considered to be some of the best in the world and the bathrooms are stunning for this sort of establishment. Although not in the city center, the features of the city can easily be reached by the nearby metro station. A very popular night club, Elmira Berlin, is nearby and visitors will be privy to the musical fusion that is featured many times per week and tends to cater to younger audiences. Certainly a backpacker location and not at all for business travelers, a&o Berlin Friedrichshain is comfortable and well managed.

Perfect for short stay in Berlin!”

a&o Friedrichshain is perfectly located for easy access into central Berlin. 300m to the Ostkreuz public transport hub. Nice, clean, spacious and warm rooms as well. In fact we liked the local Friedrichshain area as well with several places to meet and eat nearby. Even a local craft brewery - Straßenbräu. We would definitely stay there again.

Single room was excellent, location near Ostkreuz station”

I was going to Berlin for seminar and found this hotel very close to train station (Ostkreuz bhf). The station is a crossing to many destination in Berlin. To Alexanderplatz only took around 10 minutes. Walking from Ostkreuz to a&o also easy because there is sign of the hotel. Around hotel you can meet many restaurants as well as grocery stores. All in all I am very happy to stay there. Room also warm thanks to good heating. The minus only that you cant have elevator and need to drag you own suitcase.

Conveniently located basic accommodation in Friedrichshain”

Booked this place when Berlin was still teaming with tourists towards the end of summer. Stayed for 3 nights. Located at Boxhagener Street which is just 3 minutes walk from the nearest train station, the Oskreuz S station. Bus stop is even nearer if you are thinking of moving around Berlin using bus. Courteous English-speaking desk personnel, smooth check in and out, clean but very basic room. No air conditioning or fan (was informed that fan is available for rent at front desk, which made me burst into laughter never realizing that fan is luxury household item in Berlin... ). Fortunately the window can be opened slightly to air the room. As my room was facing the street, it was a bit noisy at night. A double room with twin single beds. Room was small, so was the toilet and bathroom. Shower worked fine and room was made up daily. It was a fine stay, but if I have booked my accommodation earlier, I would have chosen a much better place for the same price.

We had a two person room, which, for the price is what to expect. Clean enough, but basic. Which is fine because, sleep is waste in Friedrichshain.

easy check-in and check-out, with access card, room was clean and simple. I was disturbed with a technician in the morning who had to change the TV, would've been nice to get a heads up instead of waking up to loud drilling noise from the neighbouring rooms and then a stranger entering your room. I totally understand but just short notice beforehand wouldve been enough.

Schlechte Putzfirma, sehr viel Lärm”

A&O Hsotel could actually be a great hostel. It is an old building being renovated, its fassade is great. Unfortunately, the former cleaning team did NOT vacuum and clean the rooms, they just entered and emptied the garbage bins. That's it. A new cleaning team is starting in Feb 2020 but I couldn't see that they clean better. Let's give them time to prove themselves. Plus, every other night, you have extremely loud hostel guests who yell in the corridor, think they can booze and smoke in the hostel dorms, so other hostel guests have to call the security woman who, this be said, does an excellent job. That's why I suggested that A&O sends with each booking confirmation a short video about the do's and don'ts in their hostels. Things like: don't wash your stinky clothes in the shower and don't hang them on the turned-up heating in the dorms for it pollutes the room air, don't lay in other's guests' bed....and these are the least of the disregarding behaviors of a lot of hostel guests .

Clean, comfortable budget rooms”

Location, price, cleanliness

Pleasant - rooms were kept clean and were comfortable with adequate heating. The locations is fantastic - a great, vibrant neighbourhood with good food and only 2 blocks from the ever useful ostkreuz station. One thing to note however is that the walls between rooms however are very thin - noise from guests staying next door was very audible and cigarette smoke somehow made its way into my room through the wall. Another minor complaint is that the wifi internet is quite slow and not suitable for skyping or streaming videos.

Guests were weird”

Met some guests who are not very friendly, due to the low price this hostel attracts some strange guests. It is huge, I mean really big. So many rooms and it gets hot even at the end of the summer. I did not feel safe there because my roommate was a bit aggressive. But if you do not mind mingling with unpleasant co-habitants, the facilities are superb and more than enough to make your stay without any problems.

This hostel is huge - we were in a private double room with private bathroom. The facilities were fine and it was overall clean. The best is the location! The first day there was some strange smell in the room but we kept the window open so it passed. The pillows are very big and not so comfortable. Another disadvantage is that there is no elevator and you need to climb lots of stairs and also the very early check - out time (10am).

Inept Reception Staff”

I extended my stay and added another night ahead of my original booking. I told reception staff during check in as they hadn't realised it was an extension. Them now being aware you would assume the following could've been avoided. The next day we came back to our room to find our cards not working, we complained and staff said we were supposed to have checked out already. Now we had to get our clothes and luggage and had to wait for another 2 hours before we could check in to another room. For both rooms the cards couldn't access the elevator which was accessible for all other guests so we had to get up and down 4 floors with our luggage only to find the room we were checking into is opposite the old room.

IMO it was a very crappy place due to construction works, rude staff. Filthy rooms, very dusty. Nothing worked well, cold water and at top of the bill they somehow stole my phone in the dorm and didn't do anything about it, just said, go to the nearest police station and nothing else. They knew who the person was who stole my phone but did nothing about it, due to privacy rules just like the police did nothing about out, about a few months later.
