A mixture of hostel, bar, event center, and boat, this is a really fun, funky place to stay, especially in the summer when the river is so beautiful, the clubs nearby are hopping, and a crowd is just pouring in to start one of the many weekly events. On top of being a place to stay, the boat hosts a Spanish night, an English-speaking night, and has an amazing staff who are always chill and friendly, and eager to answer questions. It's also a fun place to go just for a drink on a chill night, to enjoy the waterside and an old fashioned good time.Recommended for:

Assuming they're not prone to sea sickness, the Eastern Comfort Hostelboat is a perfect place to stay for those seeking an unique and picturesque experience. The spacious boat and its neighboring sister (the Western Comfort Hostelboat) float on the scenic Spree. They're situated on the border between the happening Kreutzberg and Friedrichshain districts and walking distance to the famous East Side Gallery.
While I was there, I did not feel like I was on a boat, save for the cozy cabins and stunning views. The employees were attentive and friendly, even when Saturday night crowds began pouring into the "Floating Lounge", which boasts an extensive local drink menu. The lounge also hosts various themed parties throughout the week, such as a Spanish night on Thursdays and German night during the warmer months. Whether you plan to stay the night or not, it's definitely worth hopping on board the Hostelboat!Recommended for:

Located on a boat in the river Spree this hostel is moored in the East End near the Berlin Wall between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. Not your typical hostel but great for open-minded travellers and surrounded by plenty of bars and cafés.
