The Space

This apartment is a colorful nest for those looking for the big adventure in the city. It has 2 rooms with 2 separate beds that each sleep 2 people. The full kitchen is in one of the rooms and the bathroom is huge. The furnishings are mostly self made and from upcyled stuff I find. I have put a lot of work in the details so you don't feel like you are at your very own IKEA home just in a different city. There is a stereo to listen to your music but I proudly do not own a TV.
You are must be looking for a unique heaven to come back to after a long night/day (or both) else this is not for you.

Free Wifi internet access.
I have 2 bikes that you can use to explore the city.

The Flat is centrally located in Moabit directly at the Birkenstraße U-Bahn (U9) stations (2min) and the Westhafen S-Bahn station (5min). These lines provide you with very easy access to all the great areas and neighborhoods Berlin has. Prezlauer Berg is only 10min away, Mitte just as close. Kreuzberg and Neukölln 20 min. The Tiergarten, the largest Park in the city is within walking distance along the river Spree. The government district with its great architecture and the Main Trainstation (Hauptbahnhof) is only about 10 minutes away. The ICC or Berlin Messe (Exibitiion Grounds) is a few stops with the S Bahn. The charming, cobblestone neigborhood offers numerous cafes, convenience stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, and organic-markets. It's plain awesome here.

  • Ein origineller und sympathischer Gastgeber! Nur, die Wohnung war teilweise sehr schmutzig, der Kühlschrank stand und klebte im Dreck, offenen Handseifen lagen im Bad und der Badeschrank mit Reserverollen für die Toilette war sehr schmutzig.
    In der Küche hat es angebrochene Lebensmittel, wer isst dies?
    Schade, wir werden wahrscheinlich nie mehr bei airbnb buchen, war eine schlechte Erfahrung.
    Gute Ideen, leider nur sehr ungepflegt......

  • Wonderful apartment in really nice area, less than 5 min from subway and close to everything. Ben was great, gave some really good food/bar recommendations in Berlin.

    Would definately recommend his apartment.

  • Ben was a lovely host! Very welcoming and informative. Ben was also amazing at getting in touch, replied instantly. His place was a great location and was very homely and cool. Will defiantly be staying again when I next visit Berlin. Highly recommendable! :)

  • Ben's apartment is really original and we have great memories of this short vacation in Berlin! The apartment is very spacious also due to the very essential furnitures, so the four of us were not squeezed together, and Ben is a good host, he was punctually waiting for us in front of the door and gave us a lot of advices. Just few hints for special needs: if you bring your grandma with you, let her sleep on the bed because the sofa is a little tough for her back; if you have long hair, bring with you a hairdryer because Berlin fresh air is a bit too fresh to dry them, also in June; if you like to sleep until late in the morning (in Berlin you probably shouldn't!), bring with you a mask against the sun. Thank you for sharing your apartment, Ben!

  • Die Wohnung ist in seinem ausgefallenem und alternativen Style nur zu empfehlen! Macht Lust auf Berlin! Sehr gut!

  • Wir haben eine Nacht in Bens bunten und individuellen Apartment verbracht. Da wir erst am Morgen des gleichen Tages angefangen haben nach einer Wohnung zu suchen, kam uns Bens schnelle und problemlose Kommunikation sehr entgegen. Die Wohnung liegt nah an öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln und war auch vom Flughafen Schönefeld per Bahn problemlos zu erreichen. Ansonsten ist alles wie beschrieben und man fühlt sich zu Hause.

    Herzlichen Dank Ben und gerne wieder!

  • Ben was very nice and friendly, offering us tips about what was going on in Berlin the weekend we came. He also let us stay in the apartment a little longer to allow us to have our A/C fixed before driving back to Munich.

    The apartment is great. Decorated with a lot of flair, and much nicer than staying in a sterile, budget hotel, which is what you would get for comparable money. And although it was really hot when we were in Berlin, the apartment stayed pleasantly cool.

    Although we know Berlin fairly well, we were not familiar with the Moabit neighborhood, which we really enjoyed. Lots of nice little cafès and restaurants within easy walking distance, and a small shopping center with a large supermarket (Edeka) located close as well. The U-Bahn station Birkenstr. is 5 minutes away, and the closest S-bahn station (Westhafen), just a bit farther. All in all, we would definitely recommend this place.

  • Ben's place was great! It's really close to an U-9 stop and is fairly near Tegel. Four of us stayed here and were comfortable. The best part was upon arrival Ben offered us advice on where to go and how to travel within Berlin, which was extremely useful for our first time here.

  • Great spot. Lets you get the feel of the place and well away from the tourist hordes. House was all it is said to be, I felt quite at home after a few days. There's a bit of construction going on as of may/14 but assume that we be over soon. The whole of Germany seems to be under new construction! Thanks again Ben, would stay again.
