What makes the Inn-Berlin so Darn Good? This small hostel is shiny, bright, and spotless, and its owner, Ralph, is extremely friendly and helpful.
Location: Inn-Berlin is located a bit north of central Berlin, but the trip to most of the city’s main districts can be made in just fifteen minutes on either the U-Bahn or S-Bahn. Both trains are a five minute walk from the hostel, and city busses stop right in front of the building.
Rooms: The rooms are bright and clean, and all have fluffy down comforters encased in colorful duvets. The style is Ikea-minimal with clean lines. Rooms have cool and whimsical murals on their walls, and most importantly, they all come with their very own good-luck gnomes! Rooms have from one to four beds, and have private bathrooms.
Food: Inn-Berlin’s breakfast buffet (for an additional 3.90 Euro) includes muesli, toast with marmalade or chocolate cream, cookies, orange juice, coffee, and tea. The hostel has a fully equipped communal kitchen for guests looking to cook their own meals, and the neighborhood has numerous cafes serving tasty and inexpensive food.
Vibe: The hostel is funky, modern, and quiet, and is run by a sharp, cute German couple who will happily help you navigate the city.
Things to Keep in Mind: Inn-Berlin is not within walking distance to the city’s main attractions, but I thought it was cool to stay in a “real” Berlin neighborhood off the tourist track.
