Very nice staff, good location in general. Breakfast is good, nice common areas. The room (double) however lacked cozyness and smelt terribly like a smoker's.

Dear Guest, thanks for your comment about our hostel. I am sorry your room smelled from smoke. We generally have only non-smoking rooms in our hostel. This is clearly depicted everywhere in the hostel, including the information given at check-in. It happens very rarely that people don't accept these rules but this is what happened in your case. We apologize again for this inconvenience! With best regards Alcatraz Hostel Berlin

Nice place, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Had appreciated a sharp knife in the kitchen and individual reading lights, though.

A lovely place to stay. Friday night has been quite loud though, if you're not in for the party, bring earplugs.

Really a dirty place, met a cockroach in the kitchen! Bathrooms are cleaned daily, but the kitchen is in terrible condition. Also, poorly equipped, if you plan to cook... No individual lights, no place to put a book or your glasses or whatever you need close ad night.

Very nice place, excellent view. Note that it's a 20min walk out of town, but you get rewarded with a star-filled sky and calm nights away from "the party".

Breakfast is not very diverse and cleaning could be more accurate. Atmosphere among guests was good, but it's not very "acogedor".

Nice and clean space, but mayorly for Partypeople. No breakfast included, and the kitchen is very small and closed overnight. But in general very nice and clean.

Note that there's no breakfast included. Had bad luck with the room choice: double with shared bathroom. The room was nice, but unfortunately for end nov./beginning dec. it was freezingly cold and there was no heater. there was, instead something to warm your towels, but which only managed to keep room temperature like 5 degress higher than outside. no extra linen or anything was provided :(
