I'm heading there on July 4th and am using www.hostelworld.com to find accomodations. Can anyone suggest anything better? Or had a great experience at a hostel and can share it with me?
baxpax Hostels in Berlin are really great- they have 3 locations (2 in central Berlin and 1 in a trendy neighborhood about 15 minutes from the city center) and they are not just like any other hostel. The rooms are artistically decorated and each have their own unique style and are VERY clean. Their downtown location is actually a Hostel/Hotel, so you can enjoy the amenities of a hotel while still getting the experience of staying in a hostel and meeting fellow travelers. The downtown location has an awesome rooftop terrace with a pool and bar, great for hanging out in the sun and meeting new people. The locations are perfect, walking distance to many of Berlin's main sights (Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag building, Potsdamer Platz, etc). Would definitely recommend checking out baxpax! almost 6 years ago
