A&O Hotel und Hostel Berlin Friedrichshain is a very large hostel with a wide range of rooms in the former DDR district, near plenty of bars and restaurants. A popular backpacker location, the dorms are considered to be some of the best in the world and the bathrooms are stunning for this sort of establishment. Although not in the city center, the features of the city can easily be reached by the nearby metro station. A very popular night club, Elmira Berlin, is nearby and visitors will be privy to the musical fusion that is featured many times per week and tends to cater to younger audiences. Certainly a backpacker location and not at all for business travelers, A&O Hotel und Hostel Berlin Friedrichshain is comfortable and well managed.
