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.

Comfortable mattress and spacious lockers included in the price.But I DO NOT recommend this hostel to any young adult backpacker:(1)it's too far away from Berlin city centre,the nearby town is dead after 8 PM and although it is close to Potsdam,it is still a different fare zone, so you would have to buy an extra ticket (2)There's no free wifi,and the one they sell is very expensive.After staying in 7 HI hostels before,I had come to expect this service,which I consider rather essential.

We are really sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. But, when booking with us we tell you where our Hostel is located. So if you make the reservation you can't really complain about that. We never pretend to be central, we tell you on our homepage that we are located on the Wannsee lake. Also every 10 minutes there are two Metro lines into City Center, direct lines, 15 min ride. For a capital like Berlin that's not that bad. But you are right, in winter on the lake, after 8pm it's kind of dead. Also there is NO extra fare for public transport. We are located within citylimits and the regular price has to be paid, 2,60 Euro for a single trip. Also there is free WIFI, you only have to accept busines terms (as not to downloand illegal stuff) and then there is no Limit. Para ayudarte tambien hablamos espanol.
