Ostel Makes the British Headlines

From the Daily Express, the ‘World’s Greatest Newspaper’ comes David Atkinson’s report on the Ostel, which I wrote about a few days ago:

I think Ostel is at the limit of good taste,” says Robert Rückel, director of the new GDR Museum, which tells the story of everyday life in the East via a series of compelling exhibits and newsreel footage. “We have to balance this nostalgia with an objective view of life in East Berlin at this time."

Later, he calls it a "gimmicky Communist Fawlty Towers." But at least in the Ostel, you can talk about the war. Boy, can you ever!
