Hostelz.com's Review

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.

Great, small hostel
A small hostel, with a very laid-back atmosphere. Staff were super nice and friendly, and even accommodated me when I accidentally arrived having booked the wrong days! Clean, with free wifi and breakfast. Location is not too close to the Mitte (central) area, but it's very accessible by the nearby U-bahn (metro). Other guests were friendly too; was nice to chat over breakfast.

Not clean, too hot
not very good experience -- it was not clean, it was too hot inside (no air-conditioning, no chance to open windows when it was +38), the breakfast is very simple.

Amazing Staff, Clean Facility, Great Price
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It is quiet, restful, and clean. The most amazing thing about the hostel however, is its staff. They are on top of it. So kind, friendly, smart, and provide the best service, better than most hotels. This is the place to be.

This place is way too cool, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable and treat all the visitors with respect and courtesy. They rent bikes cheaper than any place in the city and I would definitely recommend taking advantage of that, Berlin is great for bicycles. If you need anything, just ask and they are more than willing to help, I had a bad experience in Berlin, but this hostel made me want to stay for a year if I could.
Great hostel!
Great hostel!
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!
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!
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.
