Everything was pretty damn good here. The cheap beer, the on site laundry, directions to everything, helpful staff, communal atmosphere. There's an xbox and tv too. Beds were good. Bathrooms were pretty clean. Nothing to complain about and I met some awesome people there. Would definitely stay again if I'm back in Berlin. Thanks!


Great hostel for solo travellers over 21. Easy to meet like minded other travellers. Close to bars and clubs for partying. Beds are so comfortable, wifi works well, clean showers and good breakfast. :)


The BEST hostel I've have been! The Jetpak hostel is my last hostel in my 4 weeks trip, and its definitely the best one! You'll never find a hostel with better atmosphere, great for solo travelers! The beds are really comfortable, and rooms are big and clean. You can't go wrong!


Please can I work for you I loved this hostel so much, such a great vibe and great people it really made Berlin so special.


Favorite hostel so far. This is the real Berlin and I loved the neighborhood with its diversity, culture, food and shops. Atmosphere was great because it's a smaller hostel. Breakfast was good and they offered great cafe drinks. Only negative was some of the wiring-outlets and bunk lights didn't work in the rooms. I will absolutely return here again, this place is the best!


Absolutely amazing. The best hostel I've stayed in on my trip so far! Such a great atmosphere and it was so easy to meet other travellers.


This hostel is perfect for the partiers or for those who want to stay off the beaten track.

Great location and great atmosphere. Good breakfast included, clean and comfortable dorms. Secure and good staff.


Perfect location and perfect hostel


Jetpak was the perfect non-party hostel. Cheap drinks, decent breakfast every morning accompanied by a fresh coffee made by the staff. Super comfortable beds and great shower facilities. Awesome hostel for solo travellers or small groups. Wouldn't stay here if nice, funny harmless street drug dealers scare you.


Really good hostel, particularly for solo travelers.. Staff were helpful and friendly, location is great for going out and only a short train ride to the tourist attractions. Very clean also! On the downside, bit of a concern with the security... but would definitely recommend!


Jetpak Alternative really is an amazing hostel for solo travelers. The lack of large groups is really lovely, and it does actually achieve a homey hostel vibe. Having the beer fridge close at ten is actually pretty cool because it allows those who want to keep partying to go out and those who want to get some sleep to do so in a quiet environment. Staff had excellent suggestions for places to go, and the hostel is located in an interesting neighbourhood with a great local art and party scene.

Loved and extended our stay at jetpak. Location is in a suburb as opposed to the center. An area where you'll see middle class parents with babies, drug dealers and hipsters all within a 50m walk. That's Kreuzberg and we love it. Free breakfast was a bonus plus the staff make really decent coffee. Easy to get into the center if you want but make sure you wander the local area - bars, art, vegan cafes and night life are not to be missed! Will def stay again.


Location 100%, such a cool area! Especially if you're up for the more underground bar/club scene in Berlin. During the day it's close to so much good food (no kitchen in hostel)! Free breakkie is fair decent! Not hard to get to the main tourist attractions via PT. Great hostel for solo travellers, good vibes! You can get cheaper accommodation if you're just looking for a bed, however on the weekend it's about the same price as everywhere else, but stays pretty damn pricy on the weekdays.


This hostel was amazing and I have already started recommending JetPak Alternative to all of my friends. The location was perfect because it is in a totally groovy part of Berlin and there were a bunch of food places within 5 minutes walking distance all around to go eat at. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the long table int he common room really facilitated a great environment to get to know fellow travelers. This is not a hostel to pass up!


Easily one the best hostels i have ver stayed at! The location is awesome, near the metro and other attractions in the midst of Kreuzberg, best area of Berlin. If you want to meet fellow travelers and have good nights out with thes newly made friends, this is where you should stay! You can buy beer in the hostel for only 1 euro, cheeper then you will find anywhere else. Only downside is the lobby area closes at 22:00, but its understandable since there are neighbors in the building who complain


Pretty average place all in all. Don't expect much from here. At least the beds are comfy


Great hostel with great atmosphere - perfect place for meeting other solo travellers. Espresso coffee and 1€ beers were amazing. Location is ideal for experiencing non-touristic, alternative Berlin with plenty of hipster cafes and bars. Wish I could have stayed longer!


The staff is great. The bathrooms and rooms are very clean. The only down side to this place is the common room closes around 10 or 11. But, you should be out and about by then.


Breakfast was great, espresso coffee always goes a long way against packet coffee. Was quite expensive for what it was. We did book late so we understand but was still more expensive than anything we paid a cross Europe over the last 2 months. Staff were amazing with directions and helping with bike hire, washing etc.
