Very enjoyable stay!
Location was the best thing. Right in the centre, next to the New Synagogue, it’s within walking distance (about 10-minute walk) to anything in Berlin Centre, such as Alexanderplatz or Reichstag. It was a nice and calm place. The staff there were really friendly, always helping you in case of needing it. We were originally five, but due to personal reasons, one of the friends couldn’t make it, so when we informed the staff about this situation, they were completely ok with it (obviously they didn’t give the money back, but it was understandable as we informed on the day we got there). Breakfast is ok, worth it for 5€, as it’s a buffet, and you can eat as much food as you want, but it did lack a bit of choice to be honest, it included bread, jam, butter, cereals, yogurt, fruit and some orange juice. Although whenever you wanted you could have free coffee, tea, or water throughout the day, which was very generous. They have a happy hour which everyone really enjoyed! The WiFi works great, and kitchen facilities are good! The room was clean, bed sheets and towels provided, and quite spacious. But be aware cleaning staff do enter throughout the day, which we were not informed about and really didn’t want them to. The bathroom facilities were not bad, but could have been better, as the two showers next to our bedroom didn’t work, so we had to go over to the other side, but they were clean, which is the main thing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Good value
Great location, decent prices, and lots of good perks like free towels and 5-euro breakfast buffet. I liked the high ceilings and courtyard for eating too. Relatively quiet street. No air conditioning, but things cooled down eventually when I opened the windows of my room

My bad experience
Unfortunately my experince was bad at the hostel. I booked for private room and there is no toilette in the room and regarding this there was no sign on the booking page!! In the morning of course toiletts are full and busy!! If I would know that I would not book with them. The bed was uncomfortable. Even I booked private room and paid lot of money I have to make my bed myself!! There was so much noise in the night, in the morning, during the night.. It was impossible to sleep!! I was all the time tired :(( Also wifi doesn not work at the rooms either :(( It sucks! So I am not satisfied with this booking.
