U Inn Berlin Hostel Reviews
Very nice hostel Mar 02, 2012
I have stayed at this hostel six times now, and I can heartily recommend it. All the staff I have met is proficient in English and know what is going on in Berlin party- and otherwise during the time of your stay.
There are two common rooms where it is easy to meet people, one is a multimedia room with DVDs, TV, radio, internet and drinks. The other is a spacious kitchen for guest cooking. On Fridays (not sure if this is every Friday), the staff cooks a typical German meal together with the guests, a good start of the weekend.
The location is near a main road (Frankfurter Allee), but far enough into a side road that there is no street noise to keep you awake. If you sleep in a dorm, other guests might wake you up ;)
A disadvantage is that there are only two showers (per gender) which are all on the ground floor. If you have a room upstairs, you will need to walk all the way through the hostel to get to the showers.
Other useful information about the surroundings of the hostel:
The hostel lies in between two metro stations on the U5 line: Samariterstrasse and Frankfurter Allee, both are about 5 minutes walking from the hostel. The U5 terminates at Alexanderplatz (~10 minutes), which is a great place to start exploring Berlin on the edge of the main sightseeing area.
The east side gallery is a 15 minute walk away from the hostel, but given the layout of the Berlin metro, not easily reachable via Metro. Tram tracks run near the hostel, but I did not use the Tram and as such don't know if there is a stop nearby.
The hostel rents out bicycles for 8 euros per day, which is more expensive than a metro day pass (just over 6 euros), but a great way to get around Berlin in general and reach spots that are not well connected to the metro grid. To rent a bicycle, a deposit of 50 euros or your passport is required.
At the corner of Frankfurter Allee/Finowstrasse there is a Volksbank with an ATM that takes Maestro cards (possibly others, but I don't have any and didn't check).
All in all, I think this hostel is a great home base when exploring Berlin, on your own or with friends (lacking those, you will meet them here :)).
