PLUS Berlin

My last three days were spend in a totally different neighborhood. By the time I arrived to PLUS Berlin, a series of hostels throughout Europe, it was late and I was tired from an extensive “Alternative” city tour. However, when I was greeted with a “Welcome Megan” I knew that this place was going to be something entirely different than what I’ve experienced in hostels.

Assuming that the staff were also psychic, they said that I was the last to check in, which explains how they knew my name. After adjusting to my new surroundings, I slowly began to take in everything around me.

First Impressions

PLUS Berlin is completely representative of Berlin itself. Only in Berlin would it make complete logical sense to take something old and destroyed (once was a school building) and create something new and innovative. I was also really impressed by how friendly the staff was to every hostel-goer, a major plus for me (no pun intended). I’m also a fan of the inside and outside decor and installations.

Added Perks

PLUS has a huge restaurant & bar area, a pool, sauna outdoor garden, laundry facilities and countless other amenities. The building is absolutely huge, so don’t be surprised if you get lost once in awhile. At night, the bar & restaurant is pretty popular and therefore is a great spot for meeting other travelers. WiFi is free although sometimes it takes a few tries to connect.

Overall Verdict

Based on everything I’ve said so far, it’s hardly a shock that I highly recommend PLUS. This was my first time staying in the luxury chain hostel but if I find myself in Prague or Florence I know where I’m staying. Breakfast is an additional €6 as are drinks or food at the restaurant. Single, double, triple rooms are available in addition to the more standard dorm-style rooms (twin, 4-bed and 6-bed). Prices from €11 up. Girls should check out the “PLUS Girls” section of the hostel.
