DO NOT RENT THIS ROOM!!
We were NOT impressed with this place. It's very over priced and the service was poor. The bed isn't a bed more than it's a madras 2 meters above the floor and not very comfortable, although the location is actually quite nice! The two bikes that are included (and you pay for!) are in bad condition, our host claimed "it needed a bit air" when really it was flat. We complained about this to our host, but she did not cooperate on a solution that would give us a functional bike, as paid for.
Besides this incident we did never actually meet our host and we felt awkward and unwelcome at her home.
And finally, she has now (days after our departure) requested 150 euros for a bike that was broken when we got to it.. Both bikes were in terrible shape before they even got out of the basement! It's seriously not our responsibility to maintain those bikes we have paid for and should be working fine!!!
My advise: you'll get better service for the same money at a cheap hostel. I can't recommend this place.
Manja contacted us regularly with very detailed notes on how to get to the location.
The flat was clean and convenient, and we appreciated being able to use the washing machine.
Die Kommunikation lief unkompliziert und wir konnten Manja zu jeder Zeit erreichen. Die Wohnung ist in einer ruhigen Lage und man kann auch nachts problemlos das Kippfenster offen lassen und gut schlafen. Wir haben uns recht wohl gefühlt :)
Ich habe zusammen mit einer Freundin bei Manja gewohnt und es hat uns beiden sehr gut bei ihr gefallen. Manja hat uns sehr freundlich in Empfang genommen und schien einen sehr unkomplizierten Eindruck zu machen.
Besonders loben möchte ich gerne die Kommunikation im Vorfeld. Alle meine Nachrichten und Fragen wurden in aller kürzester Zeit beantwortet oft innerhalb weniger Stunden. Zudem haben wir diverse Informationen und Tips im Vorfeld erhalten, die einen als Ortsfremden durchaus nützlich sein konnten.
Die Wohnung entspricht dem wie sie in dem Inserat beschrieben ist. Ich würde jedoch sagen, dass es eher eine Unterkunft für junge Leute ist, da das Reinklettern in das Hochbett durchaus eine gewisse Gelenkigkeit erfordert.Ansonsten konnte man in dem Bett jedoch sehr gut schlafen.
Wem dies nichts ausmacht, kann ich die Unterkunft nur empfehlen, da wie auch beschrieben, die Lage echt top ist. Das Zentrum ist mit der U-Bahn in kürzester Zeit super zu erreichen und wer wert auf Einkausmöglichkeiten (Lebensmittel) legt hat auch gleich diverse Supermärkte direkt um der Ecke.
I haven t personaly met Manja but she was always able to help as much as she can using mail. Apartmant was easy to find cause we got detailed directions how to get there. Also apartment is on great possition. Using public transport, you can reach any part of the city from there. Neighbourhood is calm and nice. You can find there bakery, pizzeria and big shopping center. Apartmant is clean and comfterble, with shared bathroom. We had there everything what we neded (hairdrier, towels, fridge,.. )
If you want to visit Berlin and save money it's a good choice.
The flat is clean and correct, it's easy to Check in and to go the center of Berlin.
We did not meet Manja in person, but she was very nice and helpful with the directions. She replied quickly to emails and to all needs as well. The room is private and has a bathroom where you can take a hot shower, but be warned that at least in the room we stayed in, the bed is up high like a bunk bed, so if you can't climb I would see if maybe Manja has another room. It would have also been nice if the bathroom and the room were clean. The location is really good as well.

About the Host, Manja
my name is manja. i live in berlin since 2004 and really believe that this is one of the most exciting, interesting and wonderfullest cities of the world. especially for young people.
one of my favourate passions is travelling. i spent a lot of time travelling around the world. at the time i am at home, enjoying my cute dog and garden cottage in the outskirts. time enough for earning money for my next travels and starting to run my own bussiness. and to rent my flat to people who like to stay more central in berlin and saving money to realise my dream: running for my own bussiness in combinatíon with exploring this great world.
before i write more about me. might be that i lose guest now ;). but i want to let u know that not everything is about money. and i also want to let u know what u can expect and what i am not able to give u.
i am also a passionate couchsurfer and spent a lot of time with get to know new people in this way. and i definetely i highly recomment this page for ur travels. especially if u like to get in touch with locals and have a low bugdet. just in case, if u want to know more about couchsurfing or me, then u can also watch up my profile at couchsurfing. just put the /estrellita75 behind the name of the webpage and u ll find my profile. i simply write this so complicated because airbnb doesnt allow to show other wepages and hides them. but at the moment i have no time at all to show people around and thats why i decided to rent my place via this page and look forward for the time when i can host also couchsurfers again.
it also might happen that we only meet in the beginning,when i give u the key.very seldom,but it might happen, that we dont meet and i only let u know where to pick up the key. but it also might happen that i ll be in the flat and join u. its just to let u know.
i hope that all these informations will make it easier to figure out if staying at my place or not. i only want to avaid that one of us feels uncomfortable while urstay. nontheless u re more then welcome to stay at my place. i just also wanted to let u know about other possibilities. but i absoltely welcome u at my place. i always appreciated cozy and warm places to stay while my travels. thats why i equipped my rooms with all the things that u might need. i want u to feel as mauch as possible comfy. and i hope that it perfect works out for u.
