the wait staff was fairly rude, the girl at the front desk was probably the nicest person there and she was great, everyone else seemed kind of rude and had an attitude.

Better signage at train station to walk there. Not just symbol which I didn't know.

The hostel is in f**** mordor! Is VERY far from EVERYTHING. Its in the middle of nowhere! Its almost in Postam (city next to berlim). The wi fi is no good and the staff seems really lost. There is a S-bahn that leaves you close to it. Very clean, very safe, great breakfast.

dear guest, thanks for your comments. just to explain: everywhere on our Homepage and on the hostelling international page we tell or guest where our hostel is located, at the lake in a quite area of Berlin on the way to Potsdam. We never told you that we are located in the city centre, so if you book with us, you should be prepared :-) Also with the S-Bahn (public transport) it takes you exactly 15 minutes (4 stops) to the city centre of West Berlin as zoo, ku'damm, memorial church. For a big city like Berlin 15 min is not to bad at all. thanks a lot for the good comments and hopefully you still liked Berlin!!!!
