Hi all

I'm travelling, alone for the first time, and headed to Berlin for a long weekend in late March. I want the full solo travelling experience (and I'm also very tight on cash!) so I'm looking to stay in a hostel, which I've never done before. I'd really love somewhere close to the centre, clean and with a good atmosphere. I'm hoping I'll meet some new people as I don't know a soul in Berlin! If any of you have good experiences with hostels that fit my criteria and with friendly and young guests (I'm a 23 yr old female) I'd be very grateful for some recommendations!

Thanks so much.

Mayski xx

Try this http://www.travellerspoint.com/accommodation/43035-MEININGER-Berlin-Mitte-Humboldthaus/

Haven't been to Berlin myself but I stayed in a Meininger in London and it was excellent. They first opened in Berlin so you know this one will be good! Plus they tick all the boxes in terms of clean, good value, with a young and friendly vibe.

When I went to Berlin then I stayed in City hostel Berlin that is located in Berlin's central Mitte district. It is a nice place to stay there and I really like its breakfast. If you love to play table football then there you can enjoy it too.

I stayed in a really nice hostel about two years ago called Three Little Pigs.
It's in a great location, in Berlin Mitte directly next to the subway. It's price range is pretty decent too, considering that you'll be on low budget.

Check it out online, looks exactly like in the pictures.

Quoting Kasumirai

Oh yeah, I stayed there too (wow, so long ago by now!). Location is indeed excellent, but I found it very lacking in atmosphere, which seems to be a judgment echoed by the other reviews it's gotten here at travellerspoint, though it appears it's at least gained a lounge-like room since I stayed there, so that's a major plus in my book.

Generator hostel

First ever hostel i stayed in it's right outside the S-bahn stop of Landsberger Allee. I lthink it maybe the biggest hostel in Berlin.

Two great hostels if you want a smaller hostel experience (tends to make it easy to meet people) and don't mind being on the edge of the centre rather than right in the middle are the Grand Hostel and the East Seven. Both are top rated hostels and deserve it. With the public transport in Berlin, you're not far from the centre anyway.

Hi Mayski,

East Seven is a great hostel, good vibe and nice location. I met someone there summer in 2013 and they recommended going to South East Asia, I took their advise and I'm leaving on Tuesday. Can't go wrong with East Seven. :)

Hello, Mayski!

I stayed at hostel mitte baxpax, good location and nice hostel, you can rent a bycicle there. Also I stayed at A&O Berlin Friedrichshain, it was cool too and both are really cheap. The area depends on what do you want - Mitte is the center, a lot of places to see around and Friedrichshain is for party and clubs
