    Convenient and good location .Very near to the train station . There are usually lots of local European youngsters staying here and they made loud noise ! ! Luckily I was staying in the single room and yet I still can hear their voices and laughters out there .... Room condition is very basic as usual (Normally an Aircond is not available in the hostel - gentle reminder for Asian travellers). Staffs are friendly and helpful . 10 -15 minutes walk to the eateries and various restaurants , and the neighbourhoods are very happening and busy during Friday night and weekend evening (kinda having night markets around the streets).

    Okay place to stayI was a little disappointed with this hostel. All its pictures and even in the old reviews it says it has individual beds but when I got to my room, they only have bunks. I hope they update their pictures. Kind of misleading. Also, customer service is a hit and miss. Some people behind the desk smiles and greets you, some especially when I dropped the keys to checkout, pretend you don't exist at all. I know there is a stereotype about this among Germans, but I kind of expected differently since this is a hospitality business after all.

    Staff was awesome and always ready to help, recommend places to it. There's no elevator, so if you're on the third floor, it's a hike for you. Library bar was cool atmosphere. Rooms were spacious and clean, single beds were great, lockers were good. Breakfast was pretty expensive though for what you get, though it is a buffet. Hostel was very big, so it felt harder to really meet people because compared to the amount of people staying there, bar area was very small. Just felt too Grand. But cool place, have to take the metro everywhere, but that's also because Berlin is huge

    Great location ”

    As a first time solo travelling I was concious about where I was staying however this hostel felt so safe and reassuring to know there was always someone on hand at reception. They were happy to sit down and talk you through attractions and their own personal recommendations. The room although basic was exactly what I needed for a solo traveller. The storage hold facility was also so secure and locked away. There was an offer to hold your luggage even after check out. Central location meant that the metro was a couple of hundred yards away and felt to be in a rather safe area.

    Staff Tried to Rip off. Could not sleep because of the music played in bar”

    I was stupid to book this hostel considering the "rating" when I already know about three best hostels in Berlin. well, I just wanted to try new area. At check in, I was asked to pay city tax (which is not included in payment on agoda) and 3+ euro/night for bed linen??? I stay in hostels all the time and never even once was told to pay Extra for bed linen. It was not even mentioned anywhere so i refused to pay. Than staff asked me to pay 3.50 Euro tax...she probably was really bad at maths so I had to remind her .6 euro/night makes it 1.2 Euro for two nights. She was pissed af and off course there is no welcome drink for me. Never mind, I knew it was going to be a nightmarish exp for me. Rooms are ok but psound proofing, bed are just average.

    Amazingly comfortable, watch your cell phone”

    I spent a week at Grand Hostel Berlin while attending Berlinale. No bunk beds is a huge plus. The room was very spacious for 7 seven people. There's a nice bar in the lobby and it's very easy to meet fellow travelers. While lockers are provided in the rooms, I spoke to a few people who were robbed. Not out of the norm for hostels, but worth saying.
