When you are planning to visit Berlin, there are many different alternatives if it comes to accomodation. Because you will normally not spend that much time in your room, I would normally advice to book a hostel. The hostels in Berlin are cheap and often have a very pleasant location. If you are planning to stay in Friedrichshain, you could decide to stay in the Sunflower Hostel on the Helsingforser Straße.
Choosing the right district in Berlin to spend your holiday is not an easy decision. Every district has it’s own charmes and because the public transport is splendid in Berlin, you do not necessarily have to stay in the center of the city. Three districts of Berlin which are especially interesting for young people are: Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. The Sunflower Hostel is located in the Friedrichshain and only for that reason I would already recommend this hostel. Most of the great clubs are located in Friedrichshain and you can also find many cool and cheap bars and restaurants in this part of town. It is not without reason that Friedrichshain has the highest gastronomy-density of all the districts in Berlin.
The Sunflower Hostel
Already since the beginning of 2001, tourists from all over the world are welcome to stay at the Sunflower Hostel. The friendly personell, colorful rooms and reasonable prices make it one of the populair hostels in Berlin. The famous website Tripadvisor gave the hostel a so called “certificate of excellence” and many former visitors especially rated the location and the service of the hostel as very positive. Besides that, the Sunflower Hostel also has some other benefits:
- Cheap breakfast for only 3€ which is available till 12.00
- The main reception is open 24-hours a day
- The hostel-bar is opened 23-hours a day
- Late checkout times (11.00)
- Free city-tours in the main touristic season
- Free Wifi
As in many hostels in Berlin, you have the possibility to chose between different types of rooms. The prices always depend on the amount of beds and the date of arrival. The prices in the Sunflower Hostel start at 10 euro a night (8-persons room in the low-season) and go up to 36,50€ in a privat room in the high-season. You can also decide to take a 4-personappartment which will cost you about 21,50 a night (each) in the high-season. Below you can find the full price-table of the Sunflower Hostel.
