Hostel Review: Meininger Hotel Berlin Mitte “Humboldthaus”

Meininger Hostel Berlin

My base in Berlin was this bright and cheerful hotel + hostel that was perfect walking distance from everything i needed to explore in the city in 2 days! Read on for my review…

Situated in the heart of the ‘Mitte’ neighborhood, this was a perfect central hub to discover Berlin the shortest time. A tram station + Underground station is literally right there!

I loved the ridiculously tall ceiling of my room (20 feet?!) with a well designed living space upon entering and a quiet and cozy double bed at the mezzanine level.

Being a hostel hotel, it was great to have the multi cultural and social vibe of a hostel along with the privacy of a hotel. Always my favorite kind of stay. The staff was friendly and helpful, the reception area was bright, cheery and well stocked with tourist info, snacks and drinks to buy.

For all it offers, this is definitely a place I’m coming back to, for exploring more of Berlin ๐Ÿ™‚
