A very sociable hostel where we met some really nice people, however didn't meet anyone outside our dorm as each floor was quite secluded. In general you got what you payed for, but breakfast was not worth the amount as all they offered was some...More
As two 17 yr olds, it wasn't possible to stay in a dorm in a hostel for us as we aren't 18. We spent ages looking for somewhere affordable that would house us & ended up reserving the private room with shared bathroom for 7...More
A friend and myself (both 17 years old) recently stayed a week at the Alcatraz Hostel whilst we experienced life in Berlin. The Hostel was ideal for us as first time travellers because the staff were more than accommodating with helping us find our way...More
Stayed there with a friend in a 4 bed room. Staff was nice, friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacey enough for all the luggages. Lockers are placed outside the rooms and there's also a luggage storage for the day you check out. WC...More
To start with the staff; unbelievably friendly and helpful. I always feel so ignorant turning up to a country and speaking nothing but English, but the staff could all speak English perfectly and made us feel so at ease. They gave us advice whenever we...More

No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
