The staff here was amazing, essentially just like anothre traveler. The hostel is smal compared to otehrs but it makes it easy for meeting other fellow travelers. Free breakfast and coffee/lattees/cappiccinos certainly makes the mornings easier. The location is around more of a grungier side of Berlin but easy access to the train stations and plenty of restaurants and bars near by. Overall, a great experience. Should I ever find myself in Berlin again i will definitely be staying here aaaga

This hostel is located where I, as a single female, felt uncomfortable walking home alone late at night. Staff seemed to all hang out in a clique with friends at night making it difficult to meet people.

Hay, Thank you for talking the time to review us. We ere sorry you didnt feel comfortable in the area. Kreuzberg is very safe. However, we appreciate the way the street are light at night might make some people feel this. I would also like to take this opportunity to personally apologies that we did not make you feel at home and enable you to meet fellow travelers.

Kreuzberg is the best neighborhood to stay in if you want to really get to know Berlin's young creative scene. The hostel is laid back and the staff are super knowledgeable about the surrounding area and gave us really great recommendations for specific inquiries like vegetarian restaurants and piercing parlours.

I had a great time at Jetpack Alternative. The staff was kind and always helpful, and the facilities were wonderful. The bathrooms were new and always clean. I'd highly recommend Jetpack Alternative to anyone looking for a fun place to stay in Berlin. A lot of people mention not feeling safe by Görlitzer Park, but I had and saw no issues. I rode through at all times of the day, as late as 2am, and never got hassled more than someone saying "Bob Marley Bob Marley Bob Marley."

Great hostel, good atmosphere and nice to meet people. Close to an U-bahn station, 5-7 minutes walk. I just did not like the neighbourhood, but that is my personal opinion.

I will definitely be back to this hostel again. It was easy to get in to the main sights in Berlin with the trains etc. Staff were great. Very youth orientated place, plenty of cool graffiti.

Nice hostel! Its next to a park that is a bit spooky at night. Its probably not dangerous, but you should tell people about it at check in. Staff was very nice and very relaxed about my more than late check out - thanks a lot for that :)

Amazing hostel in the perfect location for food and bars. Free breakfast is a godsend and €1 beers in the common room until midnight is the perfect way to meet people to party with. Will definitely stay again, cheers guys!

The best hostel I've ever stayed in. Originally booked 5 nights and extended to a week because I loved my time there so much. Really amazing social atmosphere at night, free breakfast, beautiful modern rooms and rainfall shower heads - what more can I say? Have been traveling solo for 3 months so far and my best time has been in this hostel.

Having traveled all over the world and stayed in many hostels I can safely say this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in! The hostel is small and intermit so you really get to meet people and hang out. Great location to experiance the real Berlin. But what really makes this place is the staff. Super friendly and very cool, they are always on hang to ask questions and get some in the know Berlin advice. Big thank you to James, Lynne and Babez (Grant) you truly are a amazing!!
