    Who's jealous??? I'm going for my birthday (first weekend in January) meaning it will be cold but beautiful. Bit like myself.

    And has anyone stayed at a gay hostel? I'm thinking of just getting a single room there.

    I stayed at one in Berlin last year. It was only OK. I didn't think people were very friendly. I had much more fun at the regular hostel I stayed at in a different neighborhood. The "gay" neighborhood in Berlin isn't very charming.

    If I did it again, I'd stay in Mitte and take the train when I wanted to go out in the gay neighborhood- Schoneberg. There are gay places all over. I loved the Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg neighborhoods.

    Art Connection Hotel in Berlin.. is fun! Right in heart of gay neighborhood, near great shopping and rail.

    VERY INEXPENSIVE and did I say fun?
