The location was amazing. The hostel is located in a beautiful area, just a 10 minute walk to the center of town, planetarium, etc. The owner is there during his posted hours every day and he takes great pride in making sure you enjoy your stay. I speak no German and he spoke plenty of English, and went out of his way for me anytime I needed assistance, suggestions, etc. The bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen in a hostel. They have a cleaning crew come every day to do a thorough cleaning of the entire place. Breakfast was a steal at $6 euro and had a fresh buffet of meats, cheeses, vegetables, yogurts, breads, coffee, orange juice, etc. The best part? The rooms. The hostel is own the 3rd floor and have huge windows with gorgeous views. When I walked into mine, it took my breath away. Sweeping views of the rooftops, beautiful skyline with old historic buildings and their tall tower all against a backdrop of unbelievably gorgeous green hills and mountains. If you make a reservation, call and request room 12. It is the corner room and has the best view in the place. If you want your own private room, it's only $10 euro more ($35/night). The only 2 drawbacks are that the checkin hours are limited so you have to call 24 hours in advance if you are arriving after 9. Basically, there is not round the clock staff. 2nd, there really is no common area to socialize other than the little entry way lobby. It would have been nice to be able to talk and chat in the darling dining room. The kitchen is small with no freezer but not a necessity. There is a fridge and everything you need for a small little hostel like this one. It was clean, quiet, well run. I've stayed in my share of hostels and I would highly recommend Alpha One Hostel in Jena.
See above. Common meeting area, better check in hours.
Everything are nice, clean and it is the best European hostel I've ever stay.
Nice location, clean, friendly staff
Friendly owner, bright and spacious room, calm neighborhood but close to the city center.
room is actually nice and window view also
there was a problem with doors in between which are closed at night and if you came out without a key you will get locked in doors for long long hours. plus had to wait long time for check-in the admin was away at check-in time
