Corona limitations (updated 17.6.)

To prevent spreading the virus some services are limited – some to meet official regulations but also because we only have a few bookings.

Reception is open from 7am to 12pm – closed at night.

For late arrivals, please let us know ahead. If you stay at the hostel, you would need to arrange something to get back into the hostel during the night. Early Checkout is no problem, because you can always leave the hostel and there is no need to see reception for that.

Bar is very limited

At the moment we only sell bottled drinks – but from 19.6. tap beer will be available again – and some snacks from the vending machine. Biergarten is open!

Guest kitchen is closed – Breakfast is available from 8am – 12 noon

We will prepare something for you on separated tables. There is no buffet. You can always have free coffee and tea – use our fridge or the microwave etc. But the guest kitchen will be closed until further notice due to hygiene regulations.

Beds and Bathrooms

We try to put every booking – whether 1 guest or a group – into separate rooms, preferably with ensuite bathrooms where possible. Shared bathrooms will be assigned to certain rooms – so only 1 guest/group per bathroom. Rooms will not be cleaned during and only 1 day after your stay. We try to have at least 1 day in between consecutive bookings in the same room including cleaning and disinfection. As more and more bookings come in and Berlin also lowers the requirements (latest by 25.6.), we will now start to open some dorms – still the distance between guests/groups need to be maintained – but bathrooms then will be shared sometimes. We already started to clean after check out again – with some hours in between for safety depending on checkout and checkin including disinfection. Sheets and towels are free and stay in the room until cleaning – our washing company ensures, that fresh sheets and towels are free of viruses etc.

Protection and Masks

Guests or groups of guests need to keep minimum 1,5 m distance. Our staff wears masks in service and at reception. Guests are asked to use masks, but it’s your choice. You will need a mask though anyway – for shopping, in most museums I guess and for sure in public transport until further notice. Soon we hope to offer masks for sale also.

Corona App

We will ask the staff to use the Corona App, that is available now in Germany. We are not allowed to enforce this though. If you travel to and in Germany you might want to use it too.

Please let us know if you have questions
