Whether it's called "Jetpak City Hostel the 2nd," "JetPak Downtown Berlin-West Hostel," or any other name, it is a great hostel. This is an ultra-clean and modern hostel. The thing that stands out most of this hostel is their award winning staff that goes out of their way to make your stay in Berlin more enjoyable. The staff offers you free maps, then sits with you to help you make a plan of the sites you might be interested in seeing based off of what you’re interested in (historical sites, art, music, theater, etc.).

The hostel is a quiet one, but the friendliness of the staff more than makes up for that. The rooms are very clean with new beds that are very comfortable and even offer free linens. The bathrooms and showers are sparkling clean and nice. There is a common area, although it’s small, which has a Mac computer which guests may surf the internet for free on. Rooms also have free wi-fi (wireless internet access) for those travelers with laptops. There is also free coffee or tea available in the common area, as well as storage lockers for your important personal belongings.

The hostel is located above a restaurant and to get in you need to push the button labeled “JetPak Hostel” for someone to come greet you and to get a room. After that, you are given a key to the hostel as well as a room key, so you may come and go as you please. The location of the hostel is just a few minutes walk from the Zoo Station and a few blocks from the Kurfürstendamm (or Ku’damm for short), which is loaded with shops and restaurants. With that said, most of the sites of interest are located in East Berlin which is a far distance from this hostel, so the inexpensive public transportation pass is something very highly recommended. There is a subway stop (U-Spichernstrasse) that is less than a one minute walk away.

This hostel is definitely a great place to stay and they have awards to prove it.

5   Great hostel! Great hostel!  ()
5   One of the best hostels! Berlin was the first stop of our trip and lucky for us we got to stay at this hostel. The staff is amazingly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They offer free wifi and computers and free breakfast. The rooms are spacious and the hostel is very clean. This place is inexpensive as well which is a major plus. This hostel was great. I would definitely recommend it to others!  , USA ()
5   Great stay on the whole The staff is excellent, very welcoming and very friendly. The mood of the place is great on the whole, there is also a small common room in the basement which is really cool to hang out in. The rooms are large and spacious, very clean (cleaners come in every morning), with comfortable beds and basically all the facilities you could need (sockets, rubbish bin and AC). There is one bathroom per group of rooms, but it's fine because it's really clean and feels very homey. The reception is also a bar that serves breakfast for 2-3 euros which are well worth paying. Great bargain, it's worth the stay, also for the location (10 minutes walk from one of the big centers, the zoo). Of all the places I've stayed in during my trip, the Jetpak was the best. Greatly recommended!  , Italian ()
5   Excellent I have just stayed here for five nights (actually only booked for three but extended my stay as the Jetpak City and Berlin were so good). The hostel is squeaky clean and I mean squeaky! The staff are excellent and always willing to help. The dorms are large and spacious. It is in a great area, there are a number of good, cheap restaurants within ten minutes' walk from the hostel. Totally recommend this hostel.  , Australian ()
5   One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! The people who run this hostel are the nicest hostel-managers I have ever met! They are super-friendly and helpful. The hostel is very clean, modern and comfortable. The bathrooms are impeccable! There is also a courtyard that is nice to hang out in during the evenings when there's warm weather. The location is wonderful too. It's less than a few minutes walk to the closest U-Bahn station. I can't really think of anything to complain about... I guess one could complain that the "lounge" area isn't very big. That didn't really bother me though. You could still hang out comfortably and meet people. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I have absolutely nothing to complain about! If you stay here, you WONT be disappointed! #1 in Berlin!!!  , USA ()
5   One Of The Best! Stayed here on a month whirlwind tour of Europe. Showed up late and got a room. Very clean, fresh paint, and a great staff. One of the best hostels I ever stayed at. Nice place to sit out front on the sidewalk. Very close to the amazing subway system. Nice common areas with computers, TV, DVDs, and even video games.  , USA ()
5  Absolutely fabulous -- I traveled around northern Europe and this was one of the very best hostels. Clean, friendly staff, free internet, nice bathrooms, not cramped at all, and we met a ton of really fun and interesting people. Definitely recommended, and it's not expensive either!  ()
5  I'm an experienced traveler who somehow had never stayed in a hostel until coming to Berlin in July 2006. I was unsure of what I was in for, but the JetPak exceeded every expectation. Dorms and bathrooms were spotless, the staff was pleasant, helpful, and genuinely glad to get to know you. The hostel is very social (but never too loud or wild) and just a short metro ride from major tourist spots and nightlife. My only regret was that I didn't stay here longer!  ()
