This hostel is without a doubt one of my favourites. The atmosphere in this hostel is so incredible, so welcoming, so perfect for solo travellers. If you're on your own don't think twice and book jetpak. I recommend this hostel to everyone I speak to about Berlin. Hostels like this just attract a certain type of people. I've stayed in... More

Fantastic! Incredible! All of the good words! It's a perfect place to begin your travels. The hostel is designed so that it is incredibly easy to meet other like-minded, solo travelers and the environment is very laid back, comfortable and clean. The rooms are nice and big, with great bathrooms! The staff are perfect. I left my camera in the... More

This place gave me a once in a lifetime experience in this city. The people I met were amazing, the staff made us coffee every morning to start the urban exploration! I went over here to see a punk festival, and left with more than I could have imagined. Stay here if you are traveling solo or with a small... More

This isn't a party hostel (and doesn't pretend to be) and sets itself up nicely with good facilities and services, cheap bar, complimentary breakfast and helpful staff. Security is provided as lockers but would recommend bringing padlocked bags as these were seemingly hit and miss.

I really enjoyed my stay at JetPak Alternative as a solo traveler. The atmosphere and central area which you must walk through to get to your room made it very easy to meet and speak to new people. I stayed for 6 nights: 3 nights in an 8 person dorm and the remaining 3 nights in a 4 person dorm.... More

Take care of this place. Beside is in a zone full of dealers that still from you, the cleaning crew from the hostel went into our room and stole a lot of money from the locked baggage. They don't help at all when we tell. Sont stay if u don't want to lose your stuff.

Nice hostel in a great location. Loved that the social area was in a separate building to the sleeping accommodation so one was protected from noise. Clean and convenient. The only negative is that the social area (where one can get coffee) is closed in the morning so it is not great if one has plans early. Helpful staff!

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
