talking broadly of Europe ....What I concluded was if you live near any major train station ...no attraction is far from you .... my story of Berlin starts when we left Praha (Czech Republic) and nd we headed to Berlin.... we left Praha late in the afternoon around 1600 hrs...and by the time we reached it was abt 2200 hrs and the hard part was we didn't make any booking before coming here and mostly in our trip we did the same thing......Once we the announcement the ostbahnof train station was bieng made in the train i happened to see a banner with 'OSTEL' written on it atleast i had a sigh of relief at least something would be there...

Once we got of the train and as it was my first time in germany so starting from the signboards to everything was new for me...and adding to our bad luck everything on the station was closed ...even the tourist info desk was of no use to us... then we went outide the station to search for a hostel or budjet hotel but to our surprise unlike Rome here the rooms were quite expensive and with the help of my little memory and the receptionist of a $ star hotel we finally got to ostel in 50 mins.

the entrance of the ostel was cute and 70's style car one could see at the entrance with a beach volley ball court at the back and beach chairs also there...so we went inside had a little trouble while getting ourselves checked in but the room we got was clean and comfortable ... WiFi was there but as we were a bit far from access point so only near window we could get signal.... i really liked the room the way it was decorated and it really felt i was in 70's for a moment... the next morning once we went out we were a bit angry at ourselves cuz we were just 5 mins walk from the train station and we took a 50 mins walk around the station to reach our hostel last night.....but saying all this if i happen to to Berlin again i will definitely stay at the same place
