A Great Place to Hang Out and Sleep

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 24, 2012

This hostel is pulled back from the main road with its large entrance area complete with bright red Trabant in the drive. With over 70 rooms, there is a large amount of people staying here, and there is generally a lively atmosphere. There is an extensive breakfast buffet for €4.50. The bar opens upon request, so if you want to do karaoke or hang out with friends in there, just ask a member of staff and they will gladly get behind the bar. There is also a roof terrace and canteen that serves reasonably priced dinners. There are plenty of different types of rooms on offer, and all are airy, bright and spotless. It is advisable to book on their website, as this is generally where to find the cheapest beds last minute.

Unique Quality: My experience of the bar was seriously good fun. But I love karaoke!

Directions: A great tip is to walk around the Hallesches area because some of the best graffiti I saw in the city is in the underpasses and around the estates nearby.

This is both a hotel and hostel, which means there are a lot of different people staying here. The rooms are very hostel-like, big enough and the bathroom is ok. Everything seems very clean and well kept. The back did not agree very well with the bed though, it reminded me of the beds in my military service.
If you want to plug in a charger for the computer or phone, make sure the wall socket is secure before you use it, it almost fell off when I used it.
The TV was almost useless because of the bad reception and the remote was so used it was almost impossible to change channels.

The staff was very nice and helpful and the breakfast was ok.

Unique Quality: It's close to U-bahn and it's just 50 meters from an excellent italian restaurant. 20 minutes walk takes you to lots of restaurants and to Checkpoint Charlie.

Directions: SW edge of Kreutzberg

The room we had was clean,the staffs were friendly and helpful.We had to pay for our breakfast,which was only 4 Euros (if you reserve and pay in advance,otherwise,it costs 4.50 Euros).The were good choices from the breakfast buffet.By the way,since this is more than hostel than a hotel,you have to clean up your table after you had your breakfast;)

Unique Quality: There's a U-bahn connection to most of the sights.

Directions: From Tegel Airport,take the bus X9 or 109 towards Zoologischergarten,stop at Jakob-Kaiser Platz,then take U-bahn U7 towards Rudow,get off at Möckernbrücke.And then leave the station via exit Hallesches Ufer,cross the street and take the right direction.

We have stayed here in a twin room for 3 nights. it's been a very excellent experience here. It's clean and tidy here. The room is very spacious with a sofa, Tv and landline telephone in the room. if you want, you can even borrow the hair dryer and iron from the reception. The staff there is very nice and helpful.

Meininger City runs 3 different hostels in Berlin, with Hallesches Ufer being closest to the sights. The hostel is easy to access from the metro; it's right in between 2 stops on 2 different lines, Hallesches Tor and Mockenbrucke. It's only a 10 minute walk to Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie. The hostel has 7 floors, with the top floor being the large breakfast room with a balcony overlooking the city. Speaking of breakfast--this was the best hostel breakfast I had in 5 weeks! Huge variety of food (cereal, buns, cold cuts, cheeses, fruit, yogourt). It's included in the price of your bed, and it's very much worth every penny. The basement of the hostel has a large luggage room with wire shelves that you can lock your bags to.
The dorms have their own bathrooms, and very comfortable Ikea beds. Sheets are included, towels can be borrowed for a deposit. The front desk staff are really helpful. They know all about the sights, the transportation system, where to eat, where to go have fun, etc. Meininger also offers free walking tours of the city at 10 am daily. And you get a 2 euro discount if you go on a New Berlin pub crawl.

Unique Quality: Unlimited hot water!

It's not the cheapest Hostel but its clean... and stil cheaper than a Hotel.
It has an own carparking ground and that was very usefull because we traveled by car to Berlin.
The subway is right outside and it takes you everywere in Berlin.
If you get up on time the breakfast is good and there is some friendly staff.

There are three building as you can see on the website...

We have reservated there on a short notice, all the other hostels were Full... so its a good place when you can't get a hostel in the centrum anymore...

Unique Quality: Car Parking

Directions: Potsdammer Platz, Berlin Centre
