OSTEL - The GDR-Design Hostel



Staying at this hostel is a step back in time as everything about this place screams GDR. The building itself is a typically East German high rise and the interior is kitted out in some of the best and most original kitsch flair found in one place.  Don't worry, its not completely retro, as there is still what one needs in the way of facilities, and you of course have Wifi.

Breakfast costs an extra €7.50 and there is also a lovely garden where you can relax, play beach volleyball or have a drink from the garden bar.

Staying true to it's style, the Ostel is located a stones throw from Ostbahnhof train station and not far from the East Side Gallery section of the Berlin Wall.

This hostel is a perfect place for those who love a bit of history, a bit of fun, are fans of retro surroundings and are looking for an original Berlin experience.
