This place was once home to industrial machines and a thriving workforce, and the hostel still retains some of its original features and vibe. The bright and airy building is a two minute walk from East Side Gallery – the most decorated part of the Berlin wall – as well as five minutes from the huge and world-famous Watergate nightclub. There are also excellent transport links into the centre, with the Warschauer Strabe Underground Station just outside. The hostel is just as cool as its history, boasting a whole load of dorm and private rooms – many even feature a private bathroom and sweeping city views. There's even a shared kitchen, a breakfast buffet on offer each morning, an outdoor terrace, stylish lobby bar and 24 hour reception.
