    Summary:
    technically-correct, while lacking hospitalities normally-found at non-oststeinkopf establishments. Here, I'm thinking of Olivin, which I've been to many times and always been happy with. There, they welcome you as a guest instead of as an annoying flea. I joked to my girl: "This must be a mosquito sauna. They treat you like one." {Update: Once in the door, there was no need to interact anymore with the clerk and the facility has diverse offerings: i.e.  technically-correct. I've gotten in the habit of bringing a local with me as I know to expect such attitudes -they are very common-place regionally- and while they are abusive, I no longer have any interest in dealing with a people who cannot be helped.}

    The door greeter and introducer, and sole operator, was a man who could have either needed a break (from a sauna?), or was insecure [very common issue with the local men]. Either way I felt attacked and unwelcome.

    I don't usually give three or two stars because I feel it's in poor taste. If you are free, Olivin's is just around the corner, however also frequently full on very cold evenings, so call ahead as they don't take American Express... I mean, reservations.

    Aside, the prices here are the same as Olivin; bring your own towel, and here, bathshoes are demanded. You also are stopped from bringing your own water into the sauna; oddly enough it's also where the shoes come off.

    Prices are at 11EUR per 3 hours, about the same as Olivin. Towels and shoes can be loaned at the same rates.

    If you have any questions or comments, either send them as a PM, or leave them at the bottom of the review. I have considered this is the first english-language review reaching-out to the huge audience [of many backgrounds, probably 50% non-local] passing over Eberswalder Str every day, and as such, take it seriously to provide accurate non-biased reporting. I only wish the clerk could consider this as much as I have.
