4/10 Fair

A glorified college dorm room at a luxury hotel price.

4/10 Fair

Design trying to be cool, but function not there.
I stay at Social hub in other countries before, but this time it’s disappointing. The air-con seems not working. We have to open the windows all the time, but it’s quite noisy outside and mosquitoes kept on flying in. Also the lighting is very poor. We literally have to use the flash light on our phone to look for anything in the room.

First class in every way
My husband and I stayed here for one night and just wish it was longer. Everything about this accommodation was first class. It is so nice to be greeted by friendly staff who go the extra mile to help. I will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Berlin. Don’t be put off by the lively description. We are middle aged and didn’t find any issues re noise etc. can’t wait to return!

6/10 Good

Style over substance
Social Hub was bright and “hip”, but felt a little bit like “style over substance” for a hotel. At times, it felt more as though staff saw you as students who lived there, rather than paying guests… service at breakfast was very poor. Basic items like mugs and cups had to be asked for, and waited on! Staff didn’t seem very concerned about guest experience or satisfaction. Great decor and concept, but lacking in execution.

8/10 Very good

Excellent location, comfy hotel
Location wise A+, right next to everything a traveler needs. Remember, this is not a luxury hotel, but all the basics are covered. Perfect for our family with 2 teenage boys. Staff were excellent. Breakfast was a solid B. The thing I liked most was all the young people around, it made the place vibrant. If you want a basic, clean place to say in an excellent location, highly recommend.

Great community place with friendly staff. Only downside was the fire alarm went off twice in three days requiring evacuation but the staff gave out free drinks as compensation
