Cooking your favorite Veggi meal…

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Hey Folks,


evreybody likes good food. Especially if you share it with family, some good friends or fellow trevelers in the Hostel. To cook in a Hostel is a great experience. Because you meet people form all over the planet and also their favorite dishes. It’s a great way to get to know the worlds cuisine and share your experience on how to prepare the different dishes.


At “EastSeven” Hostel you have the chance to do all that in a very nice and fully equipped kitchen. We call it the “Supper Club”. So we give you the possiblity to cook your favorite food for your fellow travelers. We will pay for the ingredients of your vegetarian meal and serve you with free beer while cooking. But this is not all!! We will also pay for one night (dorm bed) of your stay with us!!! :)

If you feel like doing that, just let us know a day before, and we will invite people for the dinner. There are usually 10 – 20 people. Sometimes more…


And if you are not in Berlin at the moment but still like to share some veggi recipes, we would be grateful for a Facebook post with your favorite meal.


Have a nice day!

Made in West-Berlin

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

The fall of the berlin wall celebrates its 25th birthday this year. The focus was always on the changes that took place in the East. But there was this hidden gem called West Berlin, too. This city has its own stunning history. For example, many young men escaped from W-Germany to W-Berlin to get away from compulsory military service. This city also attracted other alternative groups. And yet, it was  an almost normal German city, almost.

For all of you who are interested in more, I highly recommend an upcoming exhibition called AN ISLAND IN SEARCH OF THE MAINLAND in the beatiful Ephraim-Palais. The location itself is quite stunning, situated right in the middle of the Nikolaiviertel. This is the cradle  of the oldest part of Berlin, unfortunately almost completely damaged  in WWII.

The streets of Prenzlauer Berg

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

So, what’s going on in our neighbourhood?
Our hostel is surrounded by many interesting streets. One of them is Torstrasse, a 5 minute walk to the south. A couple of years ago expats tried to establish the terms NoTo and SoTo to describe the areas north and south of Torstrasse. The question is not if they succeeded ( they did not), but what makes Torstrasse so interesting to be compared with Houston Street in NY. For sure, it is not its beauty. With its loud traffic and grey facades it resembles more the typical Berlin street just after the wall came down.  However, here you will find some of the most interesting shops, restaurants and bars Berlin has to offer. Let me try explain. Here is a small selection of places I really like.
They serve only one menu per day, but the effin best authentic French food you find that night. Reserve ahead


Muschi Obermaier
Good beer, proper drinks  and the best thing – you are protected from the outside by dark curtains and masked windows. Hire somebody to drag you out at a fix time, or you will start the next day here.


St. Oberholz
An institution for the digital Boheme due to its free wifi ( and the beautiful view of Rosetnthaler Platz). There is also an ever-changing daily menu as well as a variety of fresh juices and coffee


Toca Rouge
Modern Chinese kitchen with  delicious and exciting  dishes. Just order the crazy orange chicken. Not too expensive and plenty of seats.


Lunettes Selection
You like some fancy shades that would compliment face ? They are best destination for vintage glasses in Berlin, not only because of their range but also for the professional guidance.


3 Minutes sur Mer
Oh lala. This is some really nice French food. Make sure you reserve in advance. This is the smaller and cheaper bistro style brother of Bandol sur Mer. If you are into French cuisine, but prefer a more relaxed atmosphere this is your place.
My fav halloumi shawarma place. Easily to overlook and quite  non-descript, thiss place serves delicious arab street foods for a decent price. ( in case you spent too much on a French tarte and are still hungry)


Well, not really a bright star on Torstrasse, but an honest one. The best description is in the name already – sports bar. No-frills, no bs, but beer and Bundesliga.


Unpretentious 1920s style bar. They brew their own beer, which is by far less boring than most pilsners you can get in Berlin  bars. The service is not overly friendly but low-key, so you can spend hours there. Located on a corner, you have many windows heading on Tortrasse. Please avoid if you are non smoker.


Adidas’ first select store worldwide. They have, what other won’t, limited issues of Adidas collabs with renowned designers – always strictly limited and hard to get.


The only thing you need to do now, is to come to our hostel and we will point to the right direction. See you in NoTo
