The hip Transit Loft Hotel calls itself a "youth hotel," as it's very popular with young groups and families. It offers more services than your average hostel, but it does share some things in common with the typical Berlin backpacker haunts—for instance, its location in a converted, yellow-brick 19th-century helmet factory. And then there’s the general atmosphere, which seems to toss together an international cast of characters like a dinner salad.
Pros: Cool vibe. Hotel digs with a hostel spirit.
Cons: Can pick up street noise.
The Transit Loft's 47 guest rooms are clean-cut and handsome, albeit simple. Beds are boxy, tables and desks are utilitarian, and we recognized the attractive navy curtains and carpets from the Transit Loft's sister hotel, the Hotel Transit in Kreuzberg.
Amenities are few here: You get a safe and free Wi-Fi, and that’s about it. In addition to private rooms that sleep anywhere from one to six people, the Transit Loft also offers some dormitory-style rooms, with single beds (no bunks!) and little else.
All rooms are equipped with their own private tiled bath, setting the Transit Loft apart from the shared facilities of hostel-land. Bathrooms are very clean, and some are even rather spacious.
The former factory has been converted into a multi-use "leisure" facility, so the hotel shares the building with the "Billiard Fun" pool bar, a video store, gym and other leisure-related enterprises. From the Transit Loft, you can easily walk to all the main sights, shops and suds in Prenzlauer Berg.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Hotel Transit Loft neighborhood
One of Berlin's funkiest hoods, Prenzlauer Berg sits to the northeast of Mitte. Speckled with cute restaurants, cafés, and funky retail shops, PB's claims to bohemianism predate the post-reunification creep of gentrification. Prenzlauer Berg was a Jewish neighborhood before the rise of the Nazis and a somewhat arty area in the former East Germany. The weekly markets held on Kollwitzplatz and Helmholtzplatz provide additional draws.
