Ostel communist-style hotel in Berlin

Ostel is a new budget hotel in Berlin that celebrates Communist retro chic.


Rooms are furnished with Communist-era pieces rescued from private houses and second hand shops, and have nostalgic names such as Stasi Suite and Pioneer Camp.


The hotel is located in a former East German housing block in the Berlin Mitte district.


It also contains a Konsum store selling vintage souvenirs from the days of the German Democratic Republic.
