Must-Read Hostel InfoThis property has specific Terms & Conditions.
The earliest check in time 16h00 ( Eastern Comfort boat)
Due to the mandatory 'City Tax' of 5% incl. on all accommodation in Berlin effective January 1 2014,
we are forced to raise our consistently stable prices we have managed to keep over the years, to reflect this change.
Concerning booking for group ( from 8 persons) : we are looking forward to welcoming peaceful groups only, since we consider ourselves a rather relaxed hostelboat.
We do not accept stag or hen parties ( night calm from 11pm till 8am) , or anything of the similar.
Should such groups book anyway, we will refuse accommodation and terminate.
