As a school trip (organised by a travel company) this hostel does NOT suit schools! What was more angering was the staff's awful attitude, they were utterly disgusting to my staff and students, for genuine concerns. Their room allocation leaves a lot to be desired and their attitude to us was despicable. Maybe a few of you on your own,...

This is the worst "hostel" I have ever stayed in. I even use the word hostel very loosely as it is really that awful. If I could award it 0/5 I would. We visited as a school trip that was organised by a company so was already prepaid. However, the staff haven't got a clue what they're doing and tried...

I stayed in A&O Berlin Kolumbus Hostel on the 30th of July 2016. I came there around 12 midnight because i had a hard time looking for the hostel. If you coming from the airport it will just be a one stop but you will walk around 10 minutes going to the hostel. Luckily the hotel has a lighted sign...

The most incompetent people at front desk and not enough staff to make up for it. One person at the desk for check in and it took an hour to check in with only 2 people ahead of me and there were other staff members walking around but not helping. Then had to come downstairs to ask about the included...

Have been at Hotel Kolumbus a few times before, and it has only gotten worse by time. Food is incredibly expensive and really bad. Room service is really poor too. No new towels for 4 days, and not toilet paper for 2 days (even though we asked for it as soon as we ran out). Wouldn't recommend it to friends...

Reminded me of the early 1990s. Really didn't like it... Also, the pictures look nothing like the real view of the hotel. And you must pay for internet! Also, it takes about 35 mins to get to Alexanderplatz, not the 15 mins they suggest.

“You get what you pay for, so I suggest to go for the higher priced rooms and take the hit in the wallet, it is a better bet than the cheaper options with beds too small for adults.”
