Propeller Island City Lodge Eclectic Backpackers in Berlin

[25/01/11] 

Does the rat race, this constant, relentless mad dash towards materialism ever get you down? Do you sometimes crave for conversation where the Dow Jones isn't mentioned, where a 'hedge fund' is really a gardening bill, and where the only fat cats you'll find are sitting in the laps of grannies?

We live in a city ruled by money; where girlfriends ask for financial compensation after break-ups (not with us mind, but it does happen to the more feeble), where price tags are worn like trophies (and trophy wives like price tags) and where art is a commodity, not an expression.

Berlin's Propeller Island City Lodge is a serum for the senses, a place where nothing makes sense but everything has a purpose. Designed for those weary of consumption (and those travelling Germany on a budget), the 30 rooms at Propeller Island are eclectic to say the least.

There is a tubular asylum-looking room with three terraced beds, a room where the floor is on a slant and the bed flies, one dressed like a child's fantasy castle, and one with a revolving bed under gabled ceilings. 

Clearly a place where fantasies, of all kinds, come to life.
