The overnight journey was very smooth and went without incident. The bus arrived on schedule and it was a pleasant ride. The bus was almost empty, but I had reserved a seat. The facilities worked as standard, although the wifi on board was quite slow. All in all, a good ride at a low price.

Iconwifi access
Cons
IconBus unpunctual
The journey from Berlin to Hamburg already had an unfortunate start. The bus appeared unpunctual and there was no explanation for it. The seats on the bus were okay, but not really comfortable. There were also no toilets on the bus. On a positive note, however, the price was very reasonable. It was very reasonable. That's why I would personally tend to travel with FlixBus again.
Pro
IconCheap
IconCosy
Cons
IconDirty
The biggest plus point was the low price, especially as it was a night journey. The bus arrived on schedule and the journey was without incident. The equipment was okay, but the bus was dirty. The empty chip bags and handkerchiefs could have been cleaned up. The bus was not particularly full, but from experience I would always make a reservation. Based on the cheap price, however, I can clearly recommend this travel option.
Pro
IconThe journey is inexpensive
IconBooking is convenient
IconNo printed ticket necessary
Cons
IconPoor internet connection on the bus
From booking online to the journey, everything was very easy and I would really like to recommend the bus trip. The ticket prices are reasonable and you arrive relaxed at your destination. My journey to Hamburg was comfortable and the travel time went by very quickly. We left Berlin on time and reached our destination without delay. The bus was clean and hygienic. The internet didn't always have the best connection during the journey, but I don't find that too bad. The bus journey is a fabulous alternative to the train and the value for money is really great. I am a bus fan and gladly recommend the trip.

If you are thinking about taking the bus from Berlin to Hamburg, I can only recommend this trip. The ticket is cheap, but I find the bus journey more relaxing than any train journey.

Cons
IconWifi strength
I found the ICE journey very relaxing. The price was cheap, but I booked it already at the beginning of March. I found a good seat without a seat reservation. There was also room for my suitcase. The online check - in worked quickly and easily. I didn't use the toilet or the bistro. I arrived in Hamburg on time. The train was clean. The wifi was unfortunately not so strong, which made surfing on the move difficult. Otherwise a fast connection, absolute recommendation.
Pro

Cons
IconCleanliness
The ride was very pleasant and the departure was on time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing to complain about is, like most buses/trains and public transport, the cleanliness. Otherwise, everything is top notch and recommendable. Fortunately, you don't have to change trains on the journey.

IconLegroom, for very tall people
The bus journey from Berlin to Hamburg was very pleasant, luckily there were no traffic jams, so we arrived on time and had no delays. The bus itself was about half full and each person could definitely claim their own row of seats, which created a very pleasant and relaxed travelling atmosphere, the equipment in the bus was also great, there were working lights on the seats, plus air conditioning or heating, sockets and the toilet could be used throughout the journey So it was a successful coach journey all round
