It turns out that Jetpak Alternative is probably in my top 3 favourite hostels in the world! Beds are comfy with big pillows and power sockets, there are plenty of bathrooms all fitted with new showers, everything is cleaned thoroughly each day. The location in Kreuzberg is perfect, there are many places to eat nearby, and most of the best Berlin nightlife is within waking distance! The breakfast is fantastic with some great coffee available from staff!

Great place, great staff. Great location but probably not for everybody, if you wanted to stay in the centre, it's not for you. If you want a better experience and the real Berlin , do it.

Hay, We are super pleased you had such a great time at our hostel and we loved having you to stay. In response to your location you are right we are not close to the main big museums but they are only a 20 min train ride away and that we are located slap bang in the middle of all the bars and main clubs. Thank you for your review.

This was my second stay and i loved it just as much as the first time, there are a few things that need fixing (shower door, lockers) but that's if i'm being really fussy. Thank you for another wonderful stay :D

Really liked this hostel a lot. It's located very close to great eateries, bars, parks, and clubs. The dorms have a really neat set-up and everything is very nice/clean. The staff always gives good tips about where to go at night and occasionally you'll find them about city doing the things they recommend. This is a great place for solo travelers, you will make lots of friends and have a great time!

Great hostel. Really nice staff and a relatively smaller common room make it super easy to meet new people in this Hostel. I also really liked that buying drinks worked on an honor system. The provided breakfast was amazing, they even had Vegemite and free coffees. Excellent location within walking distance of loads of bars, clubs and restaurants. Never had a problem with the WiFi and the bathrooms were always super clean. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Excellent staff, social atmosphere, clean rooms and 1€ bottles of beer! Close to the clubs but quite far from main tourist sights. Environment around was less than desirable with a rough looking crowd hanging out at every entrance to the park across the street and several offering acid for sale. Depends on the person but it might be right for you, you decide.

Hay, Thanks for the review. We are please you has a great time at the hostel. Just in response to your comment regarding the park, it is perfectly safe both day and night not only used by our guest but also by the local community.

I have been traveling to Berlin for research, and I've been consistently staying at hostels within the JetPak brand. This was my first time at JetPak Alternative and I really am glad that I decided to stick with this group when looking for a place in Kreuzberg. The location is right by the interesting bars, cafes, and restaurants of this fun neighborhood. In regards to the room itself it was clean and comfortable. Plus, the staff and guests create a really warm and welcoming environment.

I wish there was a ranking better than Excellent for the staff, atmosphere, and facilities. James, Grant, and Lynn were all amazing and made you feel like you were at home and they were family. The atmosphere is great, and they have an awesome computer to use, as well as an Xbox 360 with a bunch of games and 4 controllers! Would never stay at another hostel in Berlin if I had a choice.

Jetpak Alternative is The place to stay, especially for young solo travelers. The staff create a great social atmosphere, where it's easy to meet people. Also, their age limit is vital for those travelers who don't want to hang out with young college kids. The breakfast is tasty, and the staff are great baristas. Highly recommended!

Really great hostel - small enough to make socialising easy, and the staff were so cool, helpful and like to mingle and join in the fun! Very clean, secure, and nice coffee :)

The staff of this hostel is fantastic, they really make you feel like home. But, it is far from the train station, as well as to the city center. Also, there is a kitchen but, the guests cannot use it. So, you need to pay for all your meals at restaurants.

Hallo! Thanks for the review. It was very nice of to say such nice things about us (The staff), thank you. With regards to the train station we are a 5 min walk to the closest U-bahn stop and only 20 mins by train to the main big museums. However, we are located right in the middle of all the bars, super cheap places to eat and all the main clubs.(As stated in our description) We are as most our guest say in the "real Berlin'

I just loved staying at Jetpak! The staff is very very friendly, helpful and just loads of fun. Thanks James, Grant and especially Lynn for taking care of your guests in such a lovely and personal way. One night James bought a cake to surprise and celebrate the birthday of two of the guests. So nice! The coffee is great, the location perfect and the beds are the best hostelbeds ever slept in. I will definitely come back!!

One of the best hostels we've stayed in. Great location for going out at night and such an interesting area. Loved how small it is as everyone gets to know each other and there is a very homey and welcoming vibe. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Berlin.
