This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Booked on the internet site- paid deposit- then received an email advising me that the room type I had requested was no longer available (ensuit) and said I had to have a shared bathroom-- the friend I was traveling with was pregnant with bad morning sickness and understandably wanted her own bathroom. So I emailed them back explaining the situation and asked them if there was any chance we could have the room we had booked or if they could suggest where else we could stay- I received no response... I wouldn't recommend this place if you have a specific room request as you might lose your deposit and have to search for somewhere else to stay
We are sorry about the experience you had at Schlafmeile Hostel. All the properties listed on Travellerspoint set their own availability, and each booking is triple-confirmed, with the availability readjusted. We have been in touch with Schlafmeile Hostel and they have informed us that this was a staff error resulting in having the room type mixed up. The hostel's manager has agreed to refund your booking deposit for this error.

This place was simply great. As an Australian travelling on my own to Berlin, I couldn't ask for anything more. Staff were friendly, polite and efficient. Plus had a great sense of humour. The rooms were clean and spacious, plus the security and safety of your personal items was never in question.
To top it off they have an awesome cafe and bar that's not really a party seekers destination, but more of a relaxing and ideal way to experience Berlin and be close to the creative districts.
I'll be back for sure.
Me and my friends stayed at Schlafmeile Hostel for 5 days...and enjoyed very much this place. Our room was an apartment with two rooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen, it was very clean, hot and confortable, i enjoyed the inner garden outside my room to smoke cigarettes
the guys from the hostels was so kind and helped us for everything we need, expecially last night when we forgot our luggage into the pub! :D
We didn't stay so much time in the living room shared with the other guest but i saw that is a nice place to stay, play with some games (dart and ping pong) and know other guys. I think that there you will have everything you need, and for sure i will came back there. Now i've just suggested Schlafmeile Hostel to my italian friends that will come there in February.
The location is good, 5min walking far to the metro station and from a zone full of pubs.
