An East German Hotel

Germany was reunited as a country in 1990. However, a new East German hotel named Ostel has opened in Berlin.

For $50 a night anyone who is nostalgic for the past can relive what it was like to live in East Germany before 1989. There are pictures of East German leaders and several East German souvenirs throughout the hotel.

The hotel was started by two former East German circus performers.
