My husband and I stayed at the Grand Hostel Berlin in April, 2014. The common reception room are very welcoming and comfortable. Upon arrival a staff member offered us a beverage and gave us a good introduction to Berlin as to sights, transportation, and restaurants. A staff member carried our heavier luggage to our room and REFUSED a tip. (You...

I stayed here for a weekend with a friend and we loved our stay! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The building was very nice and clean. Great location close to the sights, but far enough away so that you're in a quiet neighborhood. Wifi worked really well throughout the hostel. I highly recommend!

The hostel is clean and tidy with friendly staff. The bed was really comfortable after walking round the town all day. Would definately stay again. The outside area is peaceful and a good place to have a drink and unwind.

I've stayed here for two weekend nights in April and it was a positive experience. The hostel is located in the Kreuzberg area and close to a metro station (metros run all night in Berlin!). If you arrive at Berlin Tegel airport, take bus X09 or 109 to Jakob Kaiser Platz. There take the metro and get of at Muckernbrucke....

I stayed here during my last trip to Berlin in March 2014. Good location and clean rooms. Since I only had two days to explore the city, I also got a lot of useful suggestions from the friendly staff on how to get around Berlin and see the best part of the city.

Lovely friendly, helpful staff... thank you Mira and Daniel for the Baby Guinness! Great accommodation clean and really comfortable. Great value breakfast if you book early in a cute little eating place next door. Quirky area to explore nearby with easy underground access to main tourist sites. Would stay here again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you for...

The front desk was open 24 hours (if I remember correctly) and the people who worked there were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were a little cramped, and the layout was a bit odd (no bunk beds, which was nice but left many of the beds sticking out into the middle of the room), and not a lot of...

I really liked this place. Everything is just perfect. Location, staff, the beds are so comfy, the bar is great and chill and the atmosphere is so good. The only thing, there is no kitchen, but to be honest i prefer going out to have food anyway. Berlin offers so much cheap and good food, so no complains about that....

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
