Last year a group of us went and had a BLAST!
After early morning flights on EasyJet, we arrived to our booked and VERY CHEAP hostel! 6 girls to 1 room! Why not? A girls weekend! But since we arrived too early to check-in, we left our bags at the front desk and went for a little wander! The event is located in the buzzing ‘hip’ area of Berlin! There are tons of little shops and cafes! We found a great little cafe that played nothing but Hip Hop music with great coffee and yummy bites!
When returned to the hostel we quickly realised it was CHEAP for a reason! The front desk wanted the FULL payment in CASH upfront –no credit cards accepted! And this was BEFORE we saw the room! I paid for 2 nights, that’s all the cash we had available! Now to get to the room, we had to get off on the 3rd floor and walk though a Muslim Community Center to get to our room on the 4rth floor! OMG we are a group of SALSA girls, ready for 4 nights of partying! Look, we didn’t want to offend anyone, it was a SALSA WEEKEND and we were ready to DRESS THE PART! Then we got to the room….The bathroom shower had hairs in it and the sheets had a few holes! When I called the front desk to complain, they sent 2 housekeepers. These ladies came, WITHOUT ANY CLEANING PRODUCTS…. they used the hand soap dispenser to clean the shower!
BUT it was a holiday weekend in Berlin, and there were no other affordable rooms available in at the area. So after 2 days of dealing with a flooded bathroom, and with a room carpet what was getting more and more soaked…. we managed to move to another WONDERFUL hostel!
After changing accommodations, we could relax and really enjoy the weekend! Tons of dancing! 4 nights of parties Great workshops! We found a lovely Thai resturant and ate there every night! Not only was the food delicious! It fit a SALSA dancers’ budget!
We love Berlin! The entire weekend was full of DANCING and fit our budget! We are going again this year! I’m be Co-hosting the Sat night performances , the Incognito Girls will be dancing in the Fri night student competition, and Jeff Tarpinian (Incognito Dance) is teaching!
