First and last time in this hostel. Very noisy and too big!

Poor location, poor atmosphere, unapproachable staff, had to pay for bedsheets which isn't a requirement in any other hostel I've ever stayed in, in our "hostel" room there was a double bed in the middle of the room occupied by a couple so it was an uncomfortable situation for all involved.

Good, no complains :)


Surprisingly spacious double room in a surprisingly central location.


It seems they want to charge you for everything: 3,50€ for linen, 2,90€ for card payment, also the tourist tax of Hamburg is not included on the online price. You will always paying more than expected. Not security lockers on dorms. Although the dorms weren't too bad, the hallways and stairs were quite disgusting.

A bedroom powerplant without any character.

Staffs are not enough and not helpful.


Great staff. Not the "coolest" hostel but very clean with many facilities.


Paying for the sheets was ridiculous, aprt from it . it was ok..


Maybe it was the time of year but I found the hostel full of school groups and lacking in clean.although the bar area is okay and the staff are really nice and helpful. Just bring your own sheets unless you want to pay for them! Facilities are fine and fairly clean. Wouldn't recommend for travelling alone if you like to be social.


Not a place to stay if you're a solo traveler.Everyone seemed to be big groups of Germans on party weekends or families. There is almost nothing around it. It's only saving grace is its right next to an s-bahn station.


Extra costs not mentioned: bed linen 3,50. The place is enormous and impersonal. However the beds are good.


Great hostel. Decent location. Free wifi within the rooms was a nice touch. The queues for checking in was maybe a little long but the rooms made up for it. Good, comfy beds and spotlessly clean. Would stay here again


Very Nice!


Nice hostel, nice staff!

Its a bit annoying to have to pay for bed linen, as travellers don't really carry them around with them, also to have to put a deposit down for the kitchen key felt unnecessary. No real atmosphere and the staff can be a bit slow, but its a decent enough place to sleep.


It's not the most central hostel in hamburg... But the train system makes it pretty easy to get around... Good wifi in rooms, and 24 hr bar which is nice.... Not that many places to eat in immediate area though... Would probably stay again


"€3 deposit to rent bed linen" from site actually a €3.50 charge... if you don't get it back after you can't call it a deposit! & had to make my own bed at 11pm after prebooking, & they re-charged the deposit I had already paid through this site. Not impressed :/ otherwise hostel is perfectly fine, bit bland and corporate like a hotel but clean and spacious.


The staff was a bit slow on check in and to serve drinks and food at the bar. There was advertisement of the roof top bar that was suppose to be open on Fridays and Saturdays nights, but it was closed in the Saturday that I was there, and there was no sign explaining why.


Nice hostel to meet people, good places to talk and spend some time. It is kind far from downtown, but the metrostation is near. One bad thing is the security, anyone can enter in the hostel and get in front of the rooms' doors.
