Lonely Planet
". Our independent authors have visited Ostel Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Berlin."
DK Eyewitness
"Located in Berlin’s trendy Mitte district, Ostel is designed to look like a communist-era hotel."
Time Out
"For those who just can’t get enough of Ostalgie (nostalgia for the East), there’s a hotel Konsum (state-run market), which sells everything from plaster eggcups to chocolate DDR coins." Full review
Rough Guide
Star
"Step back into the GDR of the 1970s amid a haze of browns and oranges at this themed budget hotel a short walk from the Ostbahnhof."
BlackBook
"Berlin's Ostel offers rooms and apartments for up to six people completely outfitted in commie décor, at prices equally reminiscent of the Eastern Bloc."
