“The location is great, but the service needs improvement”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

This hostel is more secured than the Pentagon, which puts a lot of limits and constraints on the guests. For example, you have to remember a new door combination every day, the wi-fi is unusable because it forces you to re-enter the password very often, and after midnight you have no access to the food you left in the fridge. Some of the staff members were not very nice (except for the cleaning lady - she was awesome and helpful!). There was too much light in the room after sunrise and no way to block it. Most of the hostel was occupied by noisy teenagers.

Room Tip: If you can't sleep when there's light out, we've heard that some of the rooms downstairs...

I have stayed in the U-Inn for my last 5 trips to Berlin. The staff are lovely and extremely helpful. The place is very homely, the rooms are a nice size and the beds are super comfy. the kitchen is very handy, and the place is very close to everything you need to get to, and is on the train line directly to the airport. Could not recommend it any higher.

The hostel is very clean, and queit late night. The staff is really nice and eager to help you showing around. The hostel is perfectly located near the underground and in the East side of Berlin, where it is all happening. I really liked the green-ness of the hostel: energy saving, water saving and recycling your foodpackings.

The hostel is located just a few-minute walk from Samaritans (don't remember the name exactly) U-Bahn station. There are many bars and cafes in the vicinity - just ask staff how to get to them. The bathrooms are clean and the kitchen is really well-equipped.
The hostel is a safe place, the main entrance code is changed every day. There are no problems with the wifi. Parking your car in the street outside is free.
The only nonsense is that you cannot consume your own alcohol in the hostel!

Great location just few minutes walk from Samaritans U-Bahn station. Clean. Room very cosy like for double. No table with chairs so you can relax different than sitting on bed.
You can't consume alcohol not bought in the hostel itself - which I find a bit silly. Conditions you sign on check in say you will be immediately evicted if you do that - doh! - really silly.

The hostel was clean and the rooms were comfortable. Good location near bars and restaurants. I had a problem with my locker and the staff was not very helpful in fixing it. I waited three hours for the house manager to come to work and open my locker which was a bummer on a weekend trip. Besides the lock incident this hostel is great and i would recommend it.

I recently stayed here with two friends, we had a room for three. It was spacious, clean and comfortable! The hostel temperature was also perfect as it was a little chilly out. The bathrooms and showers were great! The location is also good, very near the train station and a shopping centre. Be warned: all shops are pretty much closed on a Sunday...so either get supplies on a Saturday or eat at one of the many places in the area! Thank you for a fabulous stay!
