Important Information

***Important*** Please read all the information here before booking*** As we are a small hostel aimed at solo travelers and small groups, we do not accept groups larger than 4 people. We want to create a friendly, social atmosphere, that makes it easier for travelers to meet other guests, and find that with large groups this is not possible. As most of the bars and clubs in the area have a 21 y/o age requirement, we also require all guests to be between 21 & 40 years old *Please do not book if you do not meet these requirements* Warning: Not for the faint of heart. We are NOT located close to Brandenburg Gate or Mitte. If you're looking for a 'city centre' location, please don't book with is.
