Metropol Hostel (Berlin)


In a word: great.
It has taken me way too long to write about this hostel in Kreuzberg. i've stayed here on two separate visits to Berlin - each for extended days - and it is the best value around; low rates, 10% discount on your future stay, free luggage storage and a bar with reasonable rates.

Metropol Hostel is in Kreuzberg right off of the Merrighdam u-bahn stop (subway). Staff are some of the friendliest, coolest, most knowledgeable workers I've come across. They try to get you the cheapest rate for your stay. Reception is open 24/7. 
wi-fi but the signal is so poor and unreliable as to make usage nerve-wrecking
In the Commons are two flat screen TVs, a Foosball table, lots of sofas and tables and about four or five computers (for a fee). There is wi-fi but the signal is so poor and unreliable as to make usage nerve-wrecking. At best it is slow but most often the damn connection is simply "not available". This is the one irritating and infuriating aspect of Metropol. TIP: right across the street is a n all-night Internet cafe and call shop which also sells cold drinks and snacks.

Bed mattresses are comfortable (I believe they charge 3euros for linen; obligatory). And be sure to wake up for the free breakfast! The all-you-can-eat spread includes warm rolls, cold cuts, yogurt, fruit cocktail and sliced tomatoes and cucumbers (staple of Mediterranean breakfasts) along with tea, coffee, cocoa, juice, milk and cold water.

I will be definitely booking here again.
