Property Description

***Important*** Please read all the information here before booking***
As we are a small hostel aimed at solo travelers and small groups, we do not accept groups larger than 4 people. We want to create a friendly, social atmosphere, that makes it easier for travelers to meet other guests, and find that with large groups this is not possible.
As most of the bars and clubs in the area have a 21 y/o age requirement, we also require all guests to be between 21 & 40 years old.
*Please do not book if you do not meet these requirements*
If you arrive at the hostel in violation of our these policies, we have the right to cancel your booking on the spot without refund of your deposit as well as charging additional cancellation fees in the amount of your first night's accommodation.

Warning: Not for the faint of heart. We are NOT located close to Brandenburg Gate or Mitte. If you're looking for a 'city centre' location, please don't book with is. He be graffiti, dog sh*t, rats and punk rock clubs - this is Kreuzberg!

Brought to you by the two-time recipients of Hostelworld's 'No. 1 Hostel in Germany award (August & December '12) and Hostelworld's 'Cleanest Hostel Worldwide' in 2006 and 2007 for our other Jetpak hostels, here comes Jetpak Alternative!

Situated in the so36 area of Kreuzberg, we're within walking distance of Berlin's most famous Electro and Indie Rock clubs like Watergate, Berghain, Magnet and Lido, in an area with cafés and second-hand stores.

Upon arrival, our friendly and knowledgeable staff will provide you with a large map of Berlin, information on all the main tourist attractions, as well as some of the lesser know sites in Berlin, such as abandoned amusements parks and Nazi/Soviet military complexes.

We're flash packer certified - there's an iPod speaker and charger in every room, plus free broadband internet with the fastest upload in Berlin.

There's Wi-Fi in every room and the common area, plus OS X computers with card-readers on every floor. Each bed also has an individual reading light.

We have power adaptors for every country and you can call Australia, Canada and the US for free.

Sorry, we don't have kitchen facilities, but you can support the local eateries - a Döner Kebab can be had for 2,30€, Falafel for 2,30€ or a German lunch for just 3,50€

*We don't have 24hr reception, so please let us know if you are going to arrive after midnight. But don't worry, there is no curfew!*
*If the above booking conditions are not met, the bookings will be canceled or you will be turned away from the hostel upon arrival*

    had a great time staying over the weekend! cool and friendly staff. love the location in east Kreuzberg - chill but has many good and budget restaurants around. clubs within walking distance. great for solo travelers and people looking to meet others - probably because of the 1€ beer you'll find everyone in the lobby in the evening, planning the night out

    The hostel was close to many of the best clubs in Berlin, so that was nice. Kreuzberg was a pretty cool area with its own special charm, and I highly recommend it over the more standard places in Mitte. It was easy to meet people in this hostel, and it felt effortless to get a group together to go out to the clubs after some time with the cheap beers ;)

    I had a great time staying at hostel Jetpak. The staff here is super cool and very friendly. Vassilij recommended Awesome pubs and clubs and even joined us for one night. The common room is a great place to meet fellow travelers and make friends. It is not a big hostel and I liked that because it is easy to mingle with people. Their location is not the best in terms of accessibility but that also gives it an edge and you get to see the “real” Berlin. Lot of eating joints and cafes nearby
