ALCATRAZ Backpacker Hostel
Central. Individual. Affordable.
Whether you are travelling by yourself, as a couple, with a bunch of friends or as a larger group: the Alcatraz Backpacker Hostel offers a friendly and cozy atmosphere for its international guests. Families are very welcome and are happy to book our spacious apartments. The house was colourfully decorated by local graffiti artists and is a popular photo opportunity both for passers-by and our guests alike.
In our typical Berlin building we offer a cheap and individually styled accommodation with numerous completely free amenities. Among other things, you have a kitchen for communal use, lockable cabinets in the dorms, computer-terminals for surfing the internet (also wifi), table football and much more. A good opportunity to spend a few nice days on a low-budget in Berlin!
The Alcatraz Backpacker Hostel Berlin is centrally located in the middle of Berlin's trendy district of Prenzlauer Berg. Not far away from our Backpacker Hostel the Berlin Wall was located, dividing the city into East- and West-Berlin. The popular “Mauerpark” (with its great flea-market on Sundays!) is a reminiscent of this period of history. Today, life pulsates in Prenzlauer Berg and residents and tourists mingle in this district, which is not only popular for its many shopping and leisure activities. “Helmholtzplatz”, “Kollwitzplatz” and “Kastanienallee” are great spots to stroll around and enjoying yourselves. Perhaps with a fantastic coffee from “Impala”, a superb coffee-takeaway nearby. Also the nearby “Kulturbrauerei” (a former brewery, that has been refurbished into a cultural focal point) with its “Frannz Club”, the concert venue “Kesselhaus” as well as theaters, a cinema and cozy beergarden in summertime make the Prenzlauer Berg into a crowd puller. But also Berlin Mitte, with its many attractions such as Alexanderplatz, Museum Island, Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag are near and just three stops away on the subway.
This variety makes the Alcatraz Backpacker Hostel your ideal base camp for sightseeing, shopping and partying. We offer you the ideal opportunity to explore the great city of Berlin in an affordable way and invite you to experience the friendly and relaxed atmosphere in our Alcatraz Hostel in Berlin.
