The alcatraz backpacker hostel - central, individual, affordable.

The Alcatraz Backpacker Hostel is situated right in the middle of the popular district Prenzlauer Berg, where students, party folks and unstressed residents mingle.

The house was colorfully decorated by local graffiti artists and is a popular photo opportunity both for passers-by and our guests alike. Just around the corner from us you may find cosy coffee shops, trendy designer stores, old fashioned record shops, second hand clothing and lots of low-priced restaurants to feast on either asian, italian, arabic or german food. The ideal starting point for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife!

Around the Hostel:

- 5 minutes walking from here you will find the Helmholtz-Kiez, a small district of charming cobblestone-streets packed with cosy cafes, cool bars, inviting restaurants and small shops selling unusual things
- 5 minutes walking from here you will also get to the Kulturbrauerei, a former brewery which has been refurbished and now hosts several clubs, theatres and a cinema as well as a beer-garden in summertime. Worth visiting, not only for the nice industrial age architecture
- 5 minutes walking from here you may find the Mauerpark, a municipal park situated where the Berlin Wall has been back in the days. A big, lively flea-market takes place here every sunday
- 5 minutes walking from here you will find the 'Max-Schmeling-Halle', a big venue for concerts and sport events
- 10 minutes by tram you may find the Wall Documentary Center. A very informative exhibition of pictures, videos and other information about the division of Berlin and what it meant for the city of Berlin. You can see the original parts of the Berlin Wall as well as the death-strip including watch-towers, all rebuild within the city.
- 10 minutes (or 3 stops) by underground line 2 you will reach Alexanderplatz with its famous, huge television tower that can be seen basically from everywhere in the city. Find lots of shopping opportunities here. At Alexanderplatz the district of Mitte begins, with all main points of interest to be reached within walking distance from here. For example, the Nicolaiviertel is the historical center of Berlin. This is basically where the story of Berlin began (go here and eat Eisbein mit Erbspueree, you won't find any other food which is more typical to Berlin than this!). But also Museum-Island (with its famous Pergamon-Museum), the Opera-House, Gendarmenmarkt, Friedrichstrasse, the Brandenburger Tor, the Reichstag or the Holocaust-Memorial can all be reached by foot from Alexanderplatz!

Ask us, and we will tell you even more points of interest in Berlin!

    Wir hatten ein Doppelzimmer und waren mit diesem sehr zufrieden. Das Bad, das wir mit einem anderen Zimmer teilen mussten, hatten wir fast für uns alleine. Wir haben auch das Frühstück in Anspruch genommen, das vom Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis super war.

    Alles super. Am Abend etwas ruhig leider in den Aufenthaltsräumen. Kein W-Lan in den Zimmer - das ist definitiv nicht zeitgemäß.

    Sehr gut und unkompliziert, gerne wieder! Nur aufgrund eines nicht immer verfügbaren WLAN-Signals in meinem Aufenthaltsraum mache ich bei der Ausstattung kleine Abstriche.

    Tolles und gemütliches Hostel. Sehr freundliche Mitarbeiter. Unsere Betten waren sehr bequem. Nur die Türen / zum Treppenhaus waren extrem laut. Im Bad sammelte sich leider sehr viel Wasser auf dem Boden und es roch etwas unangenehm. Wir hatten in unserem 3Bett-Zimmer nur wenige Steckdosen, man sollte sich möglichst einen Mehrfachstecker o.ä. mitnehmen. WLAN gibt es nur in der gemütlichen Lobby. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und sauber.

    Gute Lage. Mit den Öffentlichen kommt man überall hin. Zimmer war gut/sauber. Gemeinschaftsbad OK (nur Wasser in der Dusche lief etwas schlecht ab). Mitarbeiter sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Für Anreise mit PKW sieht´ s etwas schlecht mit Parkplätzen in unmittelbarer Nähe aus. Aber auch da gab´ s Tipps vom Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption. Also, wer was Gutes für den kleinen Geldbeutel sucht, ist hier gut aufgehoben. Ich würde es wieder buchen.
