Bottom Line

With 133 rooms, the ONE80 Hostel Berlin is a large youth hostel with an excellent location in Alexanderplatz near bars and restaurants. This location is also a transportation hub, making for an easy commute to most of the city. There is a modern, sleek bar and restaurant on-site serving drinks and snacks 24/7 and a club in the basement sometimes open for events. The hostel is popular with solo travelers as well as groups of travelers and backpackers. Rooms are clean with en-suite bathrooms and two to eight beds, but showers tend to leak on the bathroom floors.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Youth hostel with trendy decor and inviting spaces to mingle

With 11 stories of rooms, the ONE80 Hostel Berlin has plenty of space to accommodate travelers. Guests can mingle in the trendy lobby with clear plastic chairs, gray couches, and a long bar with metal barstools, or in the restaurant/bar that has an industrial vibe with exposed pipes and block walls. A list of rules is posted behind the bar including "Always toast before doing a shot." The wings of the hotel form a large outdoor courtyard, and picnic tables provide a spot to gather. There’s a pub crawl that runs every night from the hotel, and a dark club in the basement hosts events with music and dancing. Guests tend to respect the quiet time rules, and the hostel isn’t too noisy in the hallways at night. Overall this is a stylish pick for the price point and a good option for solo travelers looking for a social atmosphere. 

Location

Convenient, central location near transportation hub

ONE80 Hostel Berlin has an excellent location in Alexanderplatz, a public square that's rich in history, offers upscale shopping, and is a transportation hub.

It’s around a 10-minute walk to the TV tower, and Museum Island is less than a 20-minute walk. Berlin Tegel Airport can be reached by car in 25 minutes or in 45 minutes via public transportation.
