You'll find us in the middle of Berlin's trendiest district Prenzlauer Berg. Our hostel is directly in Senefelderplatz, and so is an ideal starting point for shopping and sightseeing excursions. What makes this district so beloved is its unique atmosphere generated by the innumerable bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs around the hostel. Whether it's Kollwitzplatz, the Kulturbrauerei, Kastanienallee or Flohmarkt am Mauerpark - the district can always offer something that invites you to relax, browse, and have a good time.

But that's not all, not by a long shot. The district Berlin Mitte, equally popular and contains Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt, is just a 5 minute easy stroll away. And those who wish to explore the farther reaches of Berlin will find an U-Bahn-Station on the U2 line right on our doorstep. One of the most important underground lines in Berlin, as it calls at all places of interest the town has to offer: Alexanderplatz, Stadtmitte with Friedrichstrasse and Gendarmenmarkt, Potsdamer Platz, KaDeWe, Olympiastadion etc.

We are very fond of this district. Its unique charm is incorporated in our house. Do what you like, but only if you like! In the lounge, you can put your feet up with a good book after a long day, or enjoy free internet access on your laptop. If you fancy a cool beer and a chat, the chances are you'll find both at the bar. For a match of skills between old or new friends, we offer a pool table and a football table. Or you can also sit out on the terrace in front of the building and just take in the colourful bustle of Prenzlauer Berg.

Here, everybody will find something to their taste, whether in one of the countless restaurants round the corner, or in the Hostel itself. Our guest kitchen is at your disposal to conjure up your favourite dish while our in-house washing machine is doing your washing. Or if you don't feel like cooking, we also have vending machines.

We offer accommodation in single and twin rooms, shared rooms or a dormitory. All rooms have their own bathroom with a shower and toilet, and are equipped with a TV set. No need to bring bedding - this is included in the accommodation.
