The location is perfect, and the staff is great. I just felt like sometimes the bathroom wasn't very clean. The floor was irregular, so there was always a slop. There was also no place in the shower to put your things, like shampoos, etc. The heaters were very dusty, and that set off my allergy. Also, the heater in my bedroom didn't work sometimes.

I have only been there one night. Everything was fine, but the squeaky beds will wake the whole room, if anybody moves. Hostel is located between Tegel airport and inner city, which was great for me.

Considered how much we paid it was the perfect accommodation. Excellent position (Metro 200m away), very good hostel (maybe the common area could have been a bit bigger). Definitely the perfect choice if you are a budget traveller! Cheers

Alcatraz Hostel has a reasonable price-quality relation. However, it has several annoying deffects: 1) They charge you for the sheets without saying it when you make your reservation and without asking !!!! 2) The mixed bathroom is a problem since there are only 2 showers and they are right next to each other. 3) The wi-fi is not very efficient and it does not reach the rooms (only the common room, and it closes at night) 4) The staff is correct but they are not very interested in helping you.

Perfect hostel to discover Berlin Prenzlauer Berg :) I highly recommand it.

Alcatraz is located in a very vibrant avenue full of interesting stores, and it is a 20 minute walk from metro (U-Bahn) and suburban train (S-Bahn) stations. The staff was very friendly, rooms are cozy, but with small lockers, and there is a code to enter the hostel, so it is very safe. Breakfast did not worth the money, but the kitchen is good to use and they really are the best in terms of maps, flyers, discount mini-cards and other info related to visiting the city. Also, it was cheap!

Showers are in the main bathroom area with glass doors, which made me avoid a shower. Not recommended for solo travellers - very little atmosphere.

There were big chunks of dust in our room under the beds. By the way, this is the only remark, otherwise a very good value for money hostel, which i advise to everyone.

Nice and helpful staff! love them !! Clean and tidy room. the shower is weird with transparent glass door, but it's fine as long as you lock the main shower room door.
