The Best Hostels in Berlin
Berlin is one of the most amazing cities in Europe with it's rich history. Below is a list of the best hostels in Berlin and some of them offer very good value starting from only €10 per night for a bed in a dorm room. Berlin is also renowned for it's buzzing nightlife and it's many amazing tourist sights. As Berlin is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, there is a vast selection of hostels. So choosing a hostel that meets all your needs can be difficult. Obviously hostels in the center (Mitte) are going to be more expensive so my advice is to consider a hostel in a more local district such as Friedrichshain or Kreuzberg but with easy access to the center via public transport.
All of the properties on this list are actual hostels that offer some form of dormitory accommodation. There are no hotels, guesthouses, or other types of accommodation on our list below of the best hostels in Berlin. Hostels have evolved greatly over the last 20 years and many are luxury hostels or to use the term "flashpacker" hostels. These usually have a very high standard of customer service and have a more contemporary design. The other main type of hostel on this list is the community lead or traditional hostel. These are usually very social and will normally have a bar or a communal area or both.
