Obwohl die Gäste des Hostels kommentieren, dass das Hostel zu weit außerhalb Berlin liegt, ist für mich kein Problem. Hier kann man ganz in der Ruhe einen Spaziergang machen, welcher für die Gesundheit sehr gut ist. Die Lage in der Nähe des Sees ist ein Pluspunkt. Was will man noch mehr? Das Frühstück ist reichhaltig, mit großer Auswahl und sehr gut und für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei. Ich habe im europäischen Ausland schon ganz anders erlebt. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich würde wiederkommen.

The hostel is a little far from city central, but it makes there silence and comfortable space.

We had an excellent stay at JH am Wannsee. Waking up every morning to a view of the lake was lovely, and we were only 20 minutes from the centre of Berlin, and 15 from Potsdam. The rooms have plenty of storage, which makes a nice change from most hostels.
