Shared experiences make a hundred times happier than being alone in the most beautiful place in the world. Every traveller has probably made this experience before.
That is why, at A&O, we do everything for a great sense of community!
Those who love real hostel feeling are in good hands in our lounges, community areas or bars! Sports fans regularly cheer for their international teams in front of our lobby TV’s, the others enjoy their evening with a beer or cocktail and backpackers and students play a match of table soccer together. In many A&O's you also find driving simulators or ping-pong tables. The A&O's in Hamburg even offer air hockey and party rooms, the A&O Berlin Friedrichshain again tops that with an outdoor barbecue area and volleyball net!
Our message boards are the offline version of the social web. Anything regarding events around town or a general thrill for action can be scribbled on, evaluated and exchanged, such as "Who's going to dance today?" or "I still have a ticket for today’s concert at Radar - anyone interested? For 10€, it's yours!" You might as well use social media to keep yourselves informed. We answer all questions, post exciting contests and keep our guests up-to-date on the A&O universe: on Facebook, YouTube, Google Plus and Pinterest!
Good to know: The message boards will soon be "half-online", in other words everyone can follow his/her written word and the answers live via A&O webcam.
For backpackers, small groups, large groups, families and kids - for anyone and everyone!
We live on the satisfaction of our guests, so we thought of some fun highlights that make every city trip even better: from the hilarious PhotoFunBox, the Collect-and-Win-check-in-action or exciting events in each A&O city!
In addition to entertainment for adults, the little ones have their own kids' corner with a lot of toys, children's reading material and A&O clolouring booklets. The play corners are always placed in a way parents have their kids in sight, mostly in the lobby and breakfast area. A&O Berlin Mitte even has a Family Lounge!
