It was about 15 minutes from the nearest S-Bahn, which isn't that bad. I think the shower linked 2 rooms, I wasn't able to lock the shower, so I think people from the other room could have entered my room.

I stayed here because the central city hostels were booked up for the weekend. It was very handily accessible to the S-Bahn station and so to center city, and being right on the lake was nice. It was a very standard hostel of a design I remember from traveling in Germany when I was younger. Had a roommate, got into some good conversations with him... he was originally from Berlin, back for a visit.

Friendly and helpful staff and tidy place. Peaceful and beautiful location at Wannsee lakeside but still good connections to Berlin center with S-bahn S1 and S7. Walk to the Nicolassee S-Bahn station takes 5-10min and train to the center takes about 10-15min.
