The Alcatraz Backpacking hostel was clean and safe but quite far out from other areas such as Kreusberg so be prepared to spend time on the train. The first man who checked us in was very unfriendly and didn't really explain the transport so there's a metro and a tram from eberswalder staße which were very handy. The room was clean but the walls were quite thin so you could hear everyone coming in at 5am. Also the Internet is only free downstairs so don't expect it in your room.

Friendly hostel with helpful staff. It is quite far out from the city's main attractions but there is a metro station nearby. Rooms were clean and facilities were good in general with the exception of the bathroom which was often flooded.

If you're looking for a quieter hostel, this is it, at least when I stayed there. Happy hour is 1,50 beers in a fridge at reception. Location is convenient to public transport (S and U) and restaurants. Staff was friendly. Met some cool people, but I really had to go out of my way to do so. If you're looking for a "party hostel" atmosphere, this is not it. Overall, would recommend for people who don't want to spend a ton of time at their hostel and are looking for a good price for their room.

Great Hostel, couple of the staff were very helpful and fun to chat with. Facilities are great (although no microwave). Bathrooms could have been cleaner...water from showers and sinks had nowhere to drain so the floor was always wet and gross. Otherwise great experience.

Really cool hostel perfectly located in a scenic, trendy district close to loads of bars and restaurants. Perfect for young people. Rooms were spacious with good facilities. The staff were excellent especially one Dutch gentleman who is super friendly, helpful and creates a good hostel atmosphere.
