The guesthouse, a small, attractive restored redbrick building from the turn of the 20th century, is situated in the 2nd courtyard of a Berliner Altbau. In 1996 the former courtyard factory was converted to a guesthouse.
The building is located in the famous district of Kreuzberg. While Berlin was divided, this neighborhood was a border area of West Berlin, where the rents were low enough to attract artists, dropouts and immigrants. For this reason, Kreuzberg has been known ever since for its multicultural flair and alternative subculture. After the Fall of the Wall Kreuzberg is now situated in the center of the reunited city.
Night owls can enjoy the legendary `Kreuzberg nights’ especially in the area around Mehringdamm, Bergmannstraße and in the Oranienstraße. In Kreuzberg you will find clubs like ‘SO36’, ‘Watergate’ (both less than 10 min by foot) or ‘SchwuZ’: this area has something to suit everyone’s taste.
The Görlitzer Park is a beloved summer meeting place for young people. It is just around the corner.
If you want to chill out, the ‘Victoriapark’ is a popular relaxation area in in the western part of the district. Here you will find the eponymous Kreuzberg Hill, from where you can enjoy a fantastic view. During the summer, an artificial stream flows down from the top in the form of a waterfall.
Kreuzberg is well connected to the neighboring districts through the U-Bahn lines U1, U2, U6, U7 and U8, and the S-Bahn lines S41 and S42 (circle line). U1 and U8 are within walking distance.
House rulesThe front house and the first rear building are ordinary Berliner houses.
The neighbors are very happy when it's quiet in the yard from 22 clock.
Smoking is not allowed in the guesthouse. You can smoke in the backyard.
Wifi is free. PLEASE NOTE: Germany is very strict chasing people who download content illegally and apply heavy fines. Please don't! We would like to keep the internet open for our guests.

We've had an awesome week in this studio! The location is just perfect, really nearby an u-bahn station and in the neighbourhood there's much too see and experience.
The studio had everything you'll need + a dishwasher! The courtyard is nice for eating.
Very good apartment with excellent view, good location, clean and equipped. There was no problem and was there Ivos case-where.
Très bon appartement avec excellente vue, bien situé, propre et cuisine équipée. Il n'y a eu aucun souci et Ivos était là au cas-où.
The room was ok. Just like we expected, basic and everything we needed to sleep and stay during our trip to Berlin. The room has just four beds (two double beds) and a table with four chairs (exactly like the pictures).
We shared the bathroom with two other guests and that was fine. Didn't have to wait to take a shower for too long. Bathroom was fine as well, but small. Everything you need (like toilet and shower) is provided.
The price was right for the room we booked and I would definitely book the room again if we travel to Berlin.
The location is totally fine, just two minutes walk to Görlitzer Bahnhof where you can take the U1. The neighborhood is fine, but not that safe. Be aware and try to walk together over there. We knew this before, so we were aware of the situation.
The help of Ivos is good, but we didn't need any further tips, because I've lived in Berlin before. He was very helpful though. If you are planning a trip to Berlin and are not willing to stay in your room all day, this room is a very good option. We were there to sleep and take a shower only, so totally fine! We had a nice time in Berlin! Thanks Ivos!
Very good experience in this apartment Kreuzberg, very convenient and easy to locate. He should have been more days would have missed a salon.
Muy buena experiencia en este apartamento de Kreuzberg, muy bien situado y fácil de localizar. En caso de haber estado más días se habría echado en falta un salón.
The room was clean and we had the whole floor to yourself. Ivo was very nice and helpful. The location was quiet, but central. Would recommend!
Das Zimmer war sauber und man hatte die ganze Etage für sich. Ivos war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Lage war ruhig, aber zentral. Würde ich empfehlen!
Very good apartment highly recommended for a complete family
That is great place to stay in Berlin - fantastic view from the window, nice, clean and fully equipped apartment, very good located (just few metres from subway, 1km from Alexanderplatz, few minutes from free parking zone). Hosts were very kind and helpful. Thank you, Suzana and Ivos! Best Regards, Marcin
We have really loved staying here. The location is fantastic, very close to Alexanderplatz and with great public transport connections elsewhere (U-bahn and S-bahn are literally next to the building). Parking is available for a fee that can't be beat in this part of Berlin.
The only downside we can think of was that we visited Berlin when temperatures were around 30 Celsius. The apartment, like almost everywhere in Berlin, does not have AC and it can become a bit too warm if like us you are a winter person not relishing heat.
However for 50 weeks in year it is just perfect and we hope to be back.
The room looked just like in the picture, and was just by a courtyard that was really cosy. It was also just next to a small convenience store that held snacks, drinks and necessities - which was nice! The area also held plenty of restaurants with varying prizes, and a train station very close by.
The room was very spacious and even though we shared the bathroom with another room, we never felt it wasn't accessible. But maybe that had to do with the fact that we got up later than they did.
Now, the negatives included the pillows, which were very, very flat and airy in comparison to "normal" pillows in hostels and hotels. We solved this by rolling them for better neck support, but it was still a little bit of a nuisance. Secondly, there was an ant invasion during our two last days. The nights were okay, since most of them retreated, but at one point we had ants on all the beds and the table. I was going to let the office know, but since it was closed every time I checked (it was the weekend) I didn't find it necessary since I slept on the couch instead while my other friends were out of town during that time.
In conclusion, we had a pleasant stay apart from the pillows and - above all - the ants, which probably only was an issue for the people living on the first floor.
