The "Eastern Comfort" hostel boat is located directly at the "Oberbaum" bridge, one of the most beautyful bridges on the river "Spree", and next to the so called "East Side Galery" the longest left over piece of the former wall seperating East- and West Berlin during the cold war. The wall is 20 meters away. 15 years ago, it would have cost your life, trying to step on this ground (e.g. minefields)!
Now, it is one of the most visited hotspots in Berlin. The areas left and right of the river are the upcoming district of "Friedrichshain" in the former East and "Kreuzberg" in the former West. Each of them packed with pubs, bars, clubs & original shops.
