This is a really great place to stay. The living room/kitchen area and the bedroom were huge and the art gallery gives it a quirky feel. The location is good. The people are really friendly - I was busy a lot of the time but they invited me to drink wine with them on the one evening I was at home. They were really helpful and requests for things like an iron and late check in were agreed to and dealt with very quickly. I'm very happy with my decision to stay there!
We had an excellent stay at Paul's beautiful and spacious loft in the heart of Kreuzberg/Neukölln! The room is huge and comfortable, and the location is perfect, next to the U-bahn station and in a very lively area. Paul was very helpful in giving us directions and tips to explore the city. I'd definitely recommend staying there!
Paul's place is incredible and Paul was so welcoming, helpful and generous during our stay. The room was spacious, artistic and comfortable and the rest of the living area was so unique I really didn't want to leave. The space feels creative, artistic and friendly and is unlike any place I have been stayed. It really feels like someone is letting you in on something special.
Paul was an amazing host, always there with a restaurant recommendation, something to see or do or some great conversation but equally not around when you wanted space.
The neighbourhood is one of the best and most exciting in Berlin and I cannot recommend Paul and his place highly enough. Fantastic stay in the city.

About the Host, Paul
I am part of an open, supportive community of visual artists, curators, architects, music producers that welcomes international guests.
We have newly renovated guest rooms available at our new art center right in the middle of the lively cosmopolitan neighborhood dubbed "Kreuzkoelln", the creative area connecting Kreuzberg and Neukoelln. The studios are suitable for art lovers or creative persons that appreciate spacious surroundings and a creative atmosphere that allows for communication and interaction as well as introspection, productivity, relaxation and privacy.
Together, we have lovingly built our art house in a historic loft that has seen use as billiard salon, Kaffeehaus and cinema. It comprises ateliers and guest rooms, and a large salon/lobby/kitchen area. At our large gallery space, we set up exhibitions, organize workshops, screenings, talks and such. If they wish, our guests can take part in any event, or even talk to us about setting up one themselves if needed.
I work as an artist, curator and general director of our art house, after founding and managing an art space in Friedrichshain for the last four years. I have been doing such work for quite a while already, having shown my art around the world; setting up art enclaves, and immersing myself in Berlin's creative and underground scenes from the pre-Wall Kreuzberg to post-Wall Mitte and beyond.
Sharing my experience and knowledge is a pleasure to me, and I shall be happy to give you tips or advice while staying here.
