Berlins Most Popular Hostels
BootsnAll Travel Network
Hostelling, to a great extent, isnt a popularity contest. Its about going against the grain somewhat, about getting off the normal tourist track and seeking out more singular experiences than the average traveler might. But the fact remains that even though hostellers tend to be more intrepid travelers than most, its still nice to have a little bit of a sense of security when youre booking a hostel in an unfamiliar city that tells you other people before you have liked the place.
Which is why a list of Berlins most popular hostels is not meant to be some kind of hostel pageant but instead is designed to help give you an indication of which hostels get consistenly high marks from previous guests and tend to fill up more quickly. With this list, youll not only learn which hostels get the best ratings in Berlin, but which hostels you need to book well in advance to make sure youll get a bed.
Of course, what makes a hostel popular isnt always going to be the same criteria. Maybe its party central, maybe they offer the best amenities, maybe its got the best location, or maybe its just got a nice laid-back vibe. The bottom line is that all the hostels on this list are well-liked for one reason or another and are often full, especially in the high season.
