Great location, clean, kind staff
This was a very nice stay in a very hip part of Berlin, Prenzlauerberg. The accommodations were clean, the staff was friendly and they have a luggage room for early arrivals / late check-outs. The area is what makes this place the best. There are many bars, a blues club, and a Weekend Flea Market nearby. Also convenient is a nearby supermarket and 24h convenience store. The accommodations are nothing fancy, but if you are looking for a cheap, clean place in a great location, this will do the trick! Also, despite being near some quality nightlife, the place itself was rather quiet. Good access to the U-Bahn and tram networks, also.
