“Awesome hostel - highly recommend”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I stayed at the U Inn Berlin for the past week in the single room. Despite the small inconvenience of walking through a 6 bed dorm room to get to the single room (Their inconvenience, not so much mine), I really enjoyed staying in the room. It had a comfortable bed, big window, dresser and desk with chair so it felt like a room in a flat, I felt really at home here. The living room and kitchen are small and cosy like a flat, and the vibes are friendly and chilled out, definitely not a party place which was perfect for me. There is a bar next door but I couldn't hear it from inside the hostel. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and although the breakfast was simple with museli, juice and toast, it was enough for me. The U bahn is just a 2 minute walk from the hostel so I was able to travel across the city very late at night using public transport and I still felt safe. I will definitely be staying here again!

Room Tip: Book the single room if you are travelling solo - very cosy

I had a 2 night stay in this hostel. Also, it was my first stay in a hostel ever. For a single room for 33 Euro per Night, i wasn't quite sure about things you gonna think about cheap room, like, how clean their rooms would be, or what kind of manager there would be.

But i was quite surprised.

I had a nice introduction of the hostel and the surroundings there.
The room was cleaner than on most other pricier hotels, and if your curious about security, they've got a code locked door, which change every day.

You can have your breakfast here, for just 2 Euro. You don't get a big buffet, but enough things to start your day.
And in a short walk distance to U-Bahn station Samariterstrasse, you get to Alexanderplatz in no time

So, if you need a cheap stay in berlin, and don't mind to use a shared bathroom, THIS should be your next hostel / hotel

It's true that this little hostel may be a bit far away from the HUGE Berlin attractions (like the Brandenburg Gate), but that's not to say that it's not far away, and that's not to say that it isn't a bad thing either. You can easily take the S or the U-Bahn down, and the stations aren't far at all from the hostel. It is also well-served by funky bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants all within 10-15 minutes of walking (hint: Try the Schalander Restaurant and Brewery just a short walk away, their own-brewed wheat beer is amazing, and the food is good too).

The hostel is also cleaned very regularly (and it may lead to inconveniences such as not being able to access certain parts of the place for the time they're working there, as my sister and I found out). Additionally, it has wonderfully comfortable beds, something which can be overlooked all too easily in hostels. But its cleanliness is one of its strengths, and it's one of the reasons why I'm giving it such a high rating. I've been in much worse, so you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was by the state of the hostel.

The staff are also top-notch. We were able to strike up conversations with them extremely easily, and they were magnificent in telling us where to go, what to see and eat, and how to enjoy ourselves in Berlin. They also helped us with our booking when I had difficulties, giving very prompt responses online and seeing what they could do to make our stay as pleasant as possible. I felt like these were people I could very happily go out and spend the night drinking with.

If I had one gripe, it would be the breakfast selection. It is very basic, with cereals and milk and fruit juice. Then again, it was only €2!

All in all, a magnificent place to stay in, and very well worth the money!

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!
