This fantastic hostel is situated in an aptly grand 19th century building with high ceilings and plenty of period character. The rooms are spacious and spotless, and there are no bunks, even in the dorms, just comfy real beds with good-quality linen. Some of the doubles even have four-poster beds to match the original hardwood flooring. There are bikes to hire and the cheerful, well informed staff know everything from the best kebab shops in Berlin to where to do karaoke on a Wednesday night. The only possible downer is that it’s situated in one of the less happening parts of town, but hotspot Kreuzkölln is just down the canal and there are great transport links nearby. Free WiFi.
Tempelhofer Ufer 14, 10963 Berlin (, ). U1, U7 Möckernbrücke.
