  1. Nice Crusin spot

    “I have visited this Sauna several times and found it very suited to my needs, I normally go weekends so there are usually a good few guys in, there is a good age range from the early 20s up to pensioners.A lot of hot Asians Lads go there I think and are very sexy. The cafe part is fine, but the steam room can be a bit too cold at times.“

  2. Great place

    “I have been to the boiler several times throughout the years. I have been there everyday on my holidays. I love everything but the lockers. They are very difficult to open. I thought it was me but seeing other customers with the same problem. I realized that the lockers are probably too old and difficult to open. Having said that I do not have any complaints about it.

    The entrance fee is 22 € which I guess is the normal in Europe. Magnum sauna in BUDAPEST around 14€ DES BOILER in Berlin 21 or 22€. The staff is friendly. It is a huge place and I have seen the staff cleaning it on a regular basis. It is hard to keep spotless with just a couple of guys doing the job. It is not too full of guys on MONDAYS TUESDAYS or WEDNESDAYS you’ll see more the rest of the week.

    It is crowded on FRIDAYS SATURDAYS and SUNDAY afternoon. There is a smoking area. The crowd mostly white guys of all ages and the rest a sprinkle of everything. I prefer guys in their late 30’s and above so the venue suits just fine. I have had the best times at the BOILER and that is why THE BOILER is my last stop before heading to the USA . In the lockers you’ll find lube and condoms.

    The sling room can be close from the inside. The attitude is the same you’ll find at any sauna; personally I don’t pay attention to that I go about my business trying not to bother anyone. There are glory in one of the floors but I have never seen to much action in them or never really pay to much attention. Personally I don’t have nothing bad to say about the BOILER. I had always had great times at THE BOILER and IRISH guys are among the best if you want to be naughty.“

  3. Fun and clean. Had a great time.

    “I'm not sure what the previous reviewers encountered, but I've traveled the UK and Ireland in 2017 and again in 2018, stopping at saunas along the way, and I thought this one was great. I did not encounter any of the dirtiness or unpleasantness encountered by the others. Everything was in great working order, everything was clean, and there were plenty of guys of all types. The facilities were spread out over several floors, and it was an interesting and unusual layout compared to others. I don't know if they've renovated over this year or what, but this one gets two thumbs up from me!“

  4. Shitty hole

    “I've been here once and it's so dirty that's impossible to get stimulated while u see that. All over 60yo people and few younger ones that they are off limits because too full of themselves. Avoiding this place is the best you can do. Save 22 euros if you are young or interested in young people. 18-40 yo is rare like 5% of the crowd.“

  5. Never again

    “Been there with my Bf. We are used to gay saunas but never saw so dirty, smelly and empty. If you like to have 15 loose handed 50+, go there, if not: stay away.“
