Location Information

Alcatraz Backpacker Hostel is located very centrally in the district of Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin. The next metro-station is only one minute away.

As we have a very convenient and fast public transportation, all important sights of Berlin can be reached in only 15 minutes. Alexanderplatz is only 3 stops away and Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island or the Reichstag not much further.

Within walking distance you may find the great flea-market of Mauerpark (on Sundays), the relaxing Pratergarten (a beer-garden in the shade of chestnut-trees) and the wall-documentary center (telling about the division of Berlin).

Why not have a cappuccino or two in one of the street- cafés, offering a tempting variety of specialties? Try out “Anna Blume”, a café with a splendid amount of mouth-watering cakes on Kollwitzstraße.

A confusingly high amount of bars, restaurants and the like is on our doorstep. Sushi-Bars, great pizza places (you have got to try “a magica” in Greiffenhagener Straße, ask us for directions) or savoury German soulfood at “Zum Schusterjungen” just around the corner: loads of opportunities are waiting for you to enjoy a night out!

Especially the area around Kollwitz- or Helmholtz-Platz (about 10 minutes walking) offers numerous shops and galleries you will likely not find elsewhere. Young Berlin designers, artists and other creative minds offer their creations, differing in a great way from the standard fare you will find everywhere.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 2 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
