News from the EastSeven Hostel Kitchen

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011


we now also offer our guests breakfast!!

Although there are a lot of good breakfast places close by the hostel, and even some of them offer a discount to EastSeven guests only (Memory Cafe, In aller Freundschaft), we decided it would be cool to prepare our guests a small breakfast anyways!

It is always cool to eat something before leaving the hostel and doing a lot of sight seeing is easier with a filled belly!

Our breakfast buffet is daily from 8am till midday! Come to the reception to get your plates and a hot drink. The breakfast costs 2€, including a coffee, tea or hot chocolate. You can eat as much as you like!

Hope to see you all soon at our place :)!

Vulcano Eruption has impact on holiday plans Guests@EastSeven

Monday, April 19th, 2010

What a crazy situation. The Vulcano eruption on Iceland had, and still has, a great impact onthe  holidayplans of our guests.

It all started on friday, where lots of our friendly guests wanted to fly home, but simply could´nt. All flights had been cancelled.  Some of them tried to find a different way to get home, by train, bus or boat. But most of them stayed in Berlin, for at least one extra night. It was totally unclear when the flights where going to be allowed again, everyone hoped to be able to get a plane the next day….This wasn´t the case. At this time, on monday, still all aiprorts are closed.
Fortunateley, we had rooms available for these guest, stranded in Berlin, becuase we had a lot of cancellations on the other hand.
So sad, lots of peple who were looking forward to a lovely weekend in Berlin, had to stay home….
It is still unclear when planes will be allowed to go up in the air again.

Some guests are really happy to be staying some extra nights in Berlin at the EastSeven Berlin Hostel! An extended vacation, its nice.
Especially tonite as we will be preparing a free vegetarian dinner!!!

We feel sorry for all the travelers, stranded somewhere over the world, without being able to go home as planned.

We wish all travellers a safe flight home, somewhere in the near future!

It´s gonna be a great week in Berlin….

home-made mulled wine!


it´s almost christmas time and its really cold in Berlin…to get into the mood and to warm up a little, we now sell mulled wine (glühwein) at the reception. Everyday from 5pm on you can smell the glühwein from miles away, hmmm.
Do(n`t) drink too much, this stuff really makes you drunk…

Last friday there was a filmcrew at the hostel. They were from the ZIBB programm on RBB-Tv, a local channel.

Somewhere next week the EastSeven Berlin hostel will be featured in ZIBB, which is ofcourse really exciting.
They interviewed Jörg Schöppfel, one of EastSeven Hostel owners, and also a couple of our guests.

Today there is, as always on mondays,  the amazing free food party. It´s still a big surprise what our friendly cook Florian is going to cook  for us tonight. But one thing is for sure, it´s gonna be delicious and lots of fun. To join you need to sign up at the reception. Meet up with Florian and other hungry travelers at 7pm in the hostel lounge and kitchen.

Tomorrow there is the yearly Christmas party for the entire  EastSeven Staff….We will all eat together, Jörgs famous  ‘Grünkohl’, play a game of Wichteln, and of course we will be drinking lots of mulled wine, beer and so on….

If you´re staying in Berlin during the Christmas Holidays I would recommend to visit one of the many christmas-markets in Berlin, check out our Christmas-market-Blog for more detailed information.

1.)FREE FOOD: as always on a monday our cook florian prepares a delicous vegetarian dinner served at the eatseven hostel kitchen, lounge and in summer in the garden. It is free to join for all our guests, and if you like you can bring your own ingredients and join in on the cooking.

Just walk from the hostel to the helmholzplatz, it will take you about 15 minutes by foot.

One of my favourite ‘helmholz-bars’ is the EKA. It is a really small and cosy bar. Take the local disocunt card with you (ask for it at the reception) and get a 10% discount on all portuguese drinks. Try the portuguese beer, I loved it!!!
Also visit the bar wohnzimmer! It is decorated as one big living room. Really nice to hang out, drink a beer or a coffee. With our famous discount card you get one coffee for free.
a cozy bar/klub just  round the corner from the eastseven berlin hostel, at the pappelallee 81
