Winter is not coming, a warm Hostel Story

Winter is not coming in Berlin – A Simple Story why I love Hostels

Going to Berlin in November was a challenge for me, since I’m not really an enthusiast of low temperatures. My boyfriend and I started looking for hostels online, and found some incredible photos of the Wallyard Concept Hostel, one of the coolest Berlin Hostels.

We are attracted by places with great design projects, and this is one of the things we look forward to finding on our trips together.

Amazed by the decor of the Wallyard Concept Hostel, but traveling on a low budget, we booked a shared room for 4.

We often travel, and sometimes the hostels are nothing like they look like in their website photos.

But as we arrived at Wallyard Concept Hostel,  we realized that it was even better than we expected.

Design, graffiti and art work aside, the owners and their mother were the cherry on top of the cake! They were more than welcoming, always ready to help and give us different information about Berlin. And I haven’t even started talking about the home-cooked breakfast at Wallyard Concept Hostel.

Everything was fresh and made with love, like we were their friends staying over the weekend.

And to end our stay with great style, the owner gave us a room upgrade, so we had a suite of our own to spend Sunday night. All these little treats made our trip to Berlin so special that I even forgot the winter, since I felt really warm inside!
