You can arrive via a short trip on the metro from the city center or from the airport on a special transit train. An 85 by 120 m (297 by 39 ft) glass ceiling enhances the main concourse's oval shape. You can browse an extensive selection of stores and cafes in the main halls. Of course, you'll find plenty of areas to watch some of the more than 1,800 daily trains pull in. This is the place to be if you want to head to almost any point in Germany.

  • Station very recent (2006) and became the main junction of public transport Berlin. The station is wonderful.

  • Amazing glass construction on 4 levels. Well worth a visit open 7 days a week. Buy city travel pass €30.00 for 7 days travel on trains, trams, metro and buses.  more »
  • The monument is impressive by the design of its structure of steel and glass and because of his greatness. All these levels or trains cross, we are at the same time in a shopping mall and a train station, has must see!

  • Even if it's a youth hostel, it's really clean. The shower are furnished with soap and towel. You can also lost the sheets which is nice. But do not expect to have a peaceful night, the wall are paper thin and there's a bunch of teens doing what teens do best. But for the price you can't really be wrong.
  • stayed two times, in a family room and in dorm room. Always nice to stay here, but a bit far if you walk. It is better to catch a bus from central station, because the bus stop is nearby the hotel.easy.
  • Nice room, good location, staff helpful when needed, they have everything you need, but there were some young people who make noise, but i believe this is because of the school holidays
  • We usually have the Polyglot Gathering here, and it's always a big success thanks to how close it is to the station and the impeccable facilities of the accomodation.
  • Worst hostel I have been in my life. Feel like a meatpack in a butchery. Staff non helpful and very limited... Expensive for what it is. Went there because of no choice, but that was the only time.
