We are a young couple with a travel bug. After discovering airbnb we decided to increase our exposure to the world by opening up our guest room :-)
What can we see...it was everything we hoped for: 10/10
We got the whole apartment which is exactly as shown in the pictures (including master bedroom) and written in the text. The neighboorhood was perfect for us with a huge park within walking distance and a playground next to the building. There are two of the most vibrant neighbourhoods within walking distance: Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg. Berlin at its best !
A lovely place to stay in Berlin, and Hagen end Elli are lovely hosts! I really enjoyed this apartment, the light and good feelings were in abundance. Meeting with Hagen and Elli for the first time, when they showed me the apartment, I found them to be very generous and kind people. A very special experience! The apartment is extremely comfortable and offers plenty of space to relax after a busy day. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, but also very close to the liveliest parts of Friedrichshain.
Hagen and Elli's place is incredibly charming, as are both of they. It's in a great location, really quiet street in a busy bustling neighbourhood. The room is beautiful and large, with the most divinely comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I would recommend staying here to anyone. It's a winner.
I had a wonderful, unforgetable stay in Berlin. Hagen and Elli are a trustworthy, warmhearted couple prepared to help if needed. They made me feel like a friend. The appartment is large, clean and nice. It is located very close to a S- and U-Bahn station, easy to travel all around Berlin. I had a hugh, quite room with a comfortable bed. Elli, Hagen and their good educated dog Rosalinde are the best hosts! Looking forward to see them again in Berlin or in my home.
We had a great stay. The flat is immaculate and Hagen and Elisabeth are excellent hosts. We cooked for each other and loved exchanged travel stories. They are very genuine and friendly people that are generous with their time and gave us lots of advice about berlin.
We stayed at Hagen's apartment for 9 days. The apartment is lovely, clean, spacious, and located in a very hip and quite central area of Berlin. You can find many affordable shops, pubs, bars and even a market on Saturdays. The hosts were very hospitable.
Overall, very good value for money!
This apartment and owner´s, Hagen and Elli are fantastic.
First off the apartment is in a great location, S- and U-bahn in short distance, little convinence store on the corner, little park to sit down next to the building and a walking distance into Friedrichschain´s many restaurant and bars.
The apartment is really beautiful, bright, sunny, very clean and stylish and has everything you would need. Kitchen and bathroom also very nice. The bed is very good and we slept nicely there. It also has a small balcony where you can have breakfast in the morning sun which was great. To be honest, we were kind of surprised to how really nice everything was, given that it isn´t expensive.
The hosts, Hagen and Elli, were there for the weekend (we stayed for a week) were brilliant - so nice, helpful and welcoming and went out-of they´re way to accommodate us but were always very careful to not to impose.
We strongly recommend this apartment and it´s owners, they were exemplary.
The apartment is large and lots of sunlight. The balcony is nice. The bed was comfortable. The bathtub is awesome! The apartment is three flights of stairs, so don't pack too many suitcases. There is a lift only going from the first floor to the top floor(two flights up) so unless you catch a resident using it(key required), it's inaccessible. The kitchen had everything I needed for cooking, including fresh condiments and other wonderful necessities.There is some kind of coffee machine, but I wasn't familiar how to use it. No worries, there are plenty of coffee shops nearby. I really enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking a park. This household knows how to recycle well. The bathroom has everything you may need, something you may forget and more. These owners are very generous and accommodating. The location is convenient to the train station and large grocery chain, only about a 5 minute walk. There is also a convenience store across the street and several places to eat nearby if you decide not to cook. I was not familiar with this neighborhood before bordering on the river with Kreuzberg. It's quite lovely. I will definitely stay there again when I am in Berlin.
Ich kann die Wohnung jeden der eine Reise nach Berlin unternimmt nur wärmstens empfehlen. Die Lage ist optimal gelegen (zentral und trotzdem ruhig) und die Wohnung lädt dazu ein auch einfach mal "zuhause" zu bleiben. Super süß, groß, wunderschön eingerichtet. Es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht! Die Gastgeber sind so freundlich, hilfsbereit und und und und. Ich kann nur schwärmen!
Die Wohunung ist einfach ein Traum und macht die Aufenthalt unvergesslich. Ich fahre regelmäßig nach Berlin und werde ab jetzt immer versuchen bei Hagen und Elli zu wohnen. Sie sind zwei super Gastgeber, sehr freundlich, immer hilfsbereit und mehr als 100% zuverlässig. SEHR EMPFOHLEN!
Hagen was here with family ( dog included) for a few days. They are a really Nice family, The baby is adorable and The dog was very calm and funny. The House was left impecable and i would like to have them staying here at any time. I highly recomend them as guests.
Hagen and his wife are the perfect guests so polite, kind and clean ...it has been a pleausure hosting them in my hause
Hagen and Elle were just perfect guests they were so nice and neat. Hagen was great to talk to and Elle was so great with our cat I would highly recommend them as guests and they are welcome back to our homw anytime....
Very friendly and clean, I definitely recommended Hagen and would have him and his guests back anytime.
Hagen and Ellie are an adorable couple who has been my close friends since I moved from Sweden to Berlin 3 years ago. Hagen is one of the most intelligent people I know, and his wife Ellie is a very good-hearted woman with a lovely laugh. They both like to travel - just like me - and are both very trustworthy. In fact they would be the first people that comes to my mind if I ever get in trouble here in Berlin ;-) Despite their German love for accuracy and timeliness, they are both very easy going and flexible, and I love to hang out with them for a game of X-box, or just discussing traveling, politics or news over a beer. They speak fluently English, and have a great sense of humor. And did I mention that they have a gorgeous flat in the best city in Europe? ;-)
