Let me just start by thanking the staff for all their insight and accomodating personalities! This hostel was the best hostel I have stayed on my euro trip! If you are a single back packer or a couple of friends this is the perfect hostel! Close to great food, bars, clubs and metro! Ask the staff anything and they will have an answer and if not they will direct you! Your bunk mates become your family while travelling berlin! Great sleep tucked away from noise, and amazing bathrooms! Loved Jetpak


I've spent over a month traveling all across Europe, this was by and far the best hostel I stayed at.


The place had a great vibe to it! Was the most quiet hostel I ever slept in because we were pushed in the back away from the street. So all guests had a nice quiet place to sleep! Beds were mega comfy for after the long party nights in Berlin! Great spot, great staff and great party!


Location is such a cool area of Berlin, definitely sweet to explore but stay clear of the park- very sketchy. Kind of far from transportation. Most staff were cool & helpful, but one had a bad attitude, really arrogant and couldn't be bothered to answer questions. Great atmosphere, easy to meet people, and just chill out. I'd skip breakfast though and eat out instead. 1euro beers all the time! Overall a really cool place for solo travelers & backpackers looking for something different/unique.


This hostel is the best place to stay in Berlin. It's located in the best aternative area of the city, lots of bars and clubs around. It's true that there are drug dealers in every corner around the hostel and in the park in front of it, but they're cool and it's an experience you won't get anywhere else. Common room is great for meeting people, free breakfast is awesome (free nutella) and the staff is super friendly. Every bed has a socket, bathrooms are clean and I slept really really well.


Great hostel in a great location, near many bars and clubs. 10 minute walk from a U Bahn station. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was pretty good (very good coffee and muffins). Meet some wonderful people while staying there and i will definitely come back someday.


staff was nice and helpful, but the crowd was more of a party scenario.

Best hostel! If you want to see the real Berlin stay here. Staff are amazing and such a great social atmosphere to meet other travels. Could not recommend enough!


Close to many clubs. Berghain, Tresor and Kitkat etc are not that far away. 24 h access, code and card needed. No noise. No car trafic outside. Nice people. People sleep very late. A bit too warm rooms, smells a little of mould in one shower, noisy bathroom fans. Lots of drug dealers in the area, some aggressive. Riot police passing very often. Avoid the dealers by arriving from the north on Cuvry Strasse.


Pretty much the best hostel in Berlin (and I've seen a few). The beds are amazingly comfortable, the atmosphere is perfect and the staff are incredible. At Jetpak, you'll have no trouble meeting people and partying, but you'll also have no trouble relaxing and getting some rest.


Jetpak Alternative had an awesome location in Kreuzberg and an excellent staff. I met many amazing people from the hostel due to its focus on smaller groups of travelers staying there. Special thanks to Julian for putting up with our drunken loud behavior and still smiling and helping out!


This place was amazing! Its a very cozy atmosphere so you end up meeting a lot of great people! The location is also close by to all the bars and nightlife in walking distance. The staff is great as well- the lady in the mornings for breakfast is such a sweetheart! And the facilities are all really clean! Bathrooms and bedrooms and spacious and very clean! Would definitely recommend to others and stay here again!


Great little hostel with a great atmosphere. All the staff were very friendly and knowledgable and had plenty of good suggestions on things to do and which bars and clubs to go to. Only negatives I noticed were that there was no bathroom in the common area and breakfast finishes quite early for a place where everyone parties so late. Overall I would definitely recommend this hostel and will likely stay there again if I return to Berlin.


Awesome place, cool layout, great coffee, chill staff, sweet park across the street. Berlin was sweet too!


This was a great hostel for the solo traveller. Highly recommend to those wanting to experience Berlin on a bit more intimate level.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Staff are very friendly and helpful and were able to answer any questions. Hostel is in a very fun location with lots of bars/restaurants but there are also LOTS of drug dealers around. I never felt threatened though. I've come across a few insects during the course of my stay. It seems like in every room there's a corner with a cobweb which should be pretty easy to clean. Otherwise the place is actually extremely clean and well taken care of.


Great hostel in a good kreuzberg location. Clean rooms and beds, great staff, good free brekkie in the morning and real coffee!! Recommend for those wanting to see the real berlin :)


Decent hostel. Small details about the dorms could be better (no power sockets by the bed, smallish lockers). I liked the part of Kreuzberg it's located in (lots of good restaurants, cafés, etc near), and distance from Schlesisches Tor U-Bahn is not too bad. I spent my time elsewhere and mostly just slept at the hostel so can't comment much on social aspects.


God hostel, good location, cool area around with heaps of bars and clubs and cafes and restaurants, close to metro to get to everywhere, staff were awesome


Second time staying here; excellent as always. Thanks guys!
