Nice staff, clean facilities, a great location if you are looking to find out a bit more about the city than just the churches and bridges.

Overall the stay was good, there was a great atmosphere and good for meeting other travellers. The hostels security is great with codes on the door and secure large lockers. However in the rooms there was a lack of plugs. The hostel location is quite out of the way. Regarding the facilities the kitchen was filthy and was not cleaned and food was stolen from the fridge by drunk people after a night out. The staff were good apart from one member who was very sarcastic and rude.

Thank you very much for your review. About the kitchen. Our Housekeeping clean the kitchen every day. We apologize if this was not meeting your expectations. Please note that all our guests are responsible too for the cleanliness after usage. Sometimes not all of them are adult enough to do so. Please send me an email with details about the incident with one of our teammembers.

I Really liked this hostel and will sure come back. Nice and helpful staff, safe lockers and good wi-fi (even in sleeping Room) Great atmosphere and rooms to hang out and meet people. Perfect for backpackers on their own (or groups). The location is calm but not a far walk away from streets to party, like 10-15min walk.

The staff is simply amazing. Friendly and helpfull. The bar and backyard are good spots to meet people. Perfect for solotravelers. My room had a carpet which isn't that clean, the sheets and bathroom where clean. The area is nice and qiet but also close (5min walk) to the reeperbahn. Would stay there again.

If you're traveling to Hamburg, stay here! Favorite hostel of my three weeks backpacking through Europe. Every staff member we talked to was extremely nice, interesting and helpful (great recommendations, personal stories, and assisted us in booking travel). The hostel could not be better located for St Paulis and the hostel itself has a very fun atmosphere. Hands down, I recommend.

Nice hostel in really cool area. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. DELICIOUS soup and toasties in cafe for 2-3€. It was quite hot in the rooms but noisy with window open. Beds were very comfy although mine made heaps if noise when I moved but one else's did. One bathroom between 6 girls wasn't enough. Tiny fridge in kitchen.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for the rating and the compliment for our soups and toasties. We apologize for the noise. During your stay we a had a contruction work right in front of our door. We offer free earplugs for our guests during summer so the windows can stay open for a better aircondition. The problem with the bed i told our technician to fix. About the fridge, we have 2. ;)

Great hostel, very glad we booked here. Staff were so friendly - thanks again for the free shots when Germany beat Brazil 7-1!! The hostel has a great atmosphere with the small bar, the kitchen/common room area, and the "beer garden" area outside - we met loads of other travellers. The hostel is in a great location just 5-10 mins from the main student/bar area of Hamburg, and a short bus ride from the main station. Definitely recommended.

The hostel was very nice with the only real problem being that it's a 25 minute walk away from the town centre. It's got a relaxed atmosphere with a large communal space with a pool table and computers. The bar is great and 2 for price on all drinks in happy hour was particularly good. We had good nights sleep and the security was very good as well.

A great backpacker hostel, as the name suggests. Location is not ideal, but pretty good: close to metro station (Reeperbahn). There is no room for leaving your luggage after check out.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, thank you for your rating and comment. Guests can leave their luggage in our common room on their own risk, we provide some lockers down there aswell.Due to the small house in total we apologize not to be able to offer more storage.

Overall a good hostel. Very secure with code access to all rooms and individual lockers. Location is close to a strip of bars and clubs but a metro journey to the city centre. Good atmosphere as the communal area is quite big and there's an outdoor area, although the kitchen is quite small. Other than that the hostel was clean, staff were friendly and I would recommend it

Our stay, two nights long, was incredibly relaxed and enjoyable; the only problems we ran into were completely situational and not at all having to do with the quality of the hostel. Everything we could have asked of the hostel was readily available. The wifi was something we loved, especially since few hostels provide this free and unlimited like St. Pauli's does. The staff were the icing on the cake. Right from when we checked in, we felt welcomed. Everyone we dealt with was incredibly helpful

Kitchen is way to small and insufficently supplied

Owner Comment (Hide)
The pantry kitchen was build in afterwards and is equipped with oven, fridge, microwave, coffee machine, electric water kettle, 2 hotplates (a mobile induction cooker is available on request), crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and other cooking utensils. For special wishes our staff has more equipment at the bar. In the backyard guests have the opportunity to use the bbq. Our Hostel provides breakfast and snacks aswell and if this is enough travellers find a lot of good places to eat.

My favorite thing about this hostel was the atmosphere. It was full of people who wanted to have a good time and enjoy Hamburg. The staff are awesome people and were helpful and friendly. The hostel itself is really well arranged with a bar and an outdoor area and lounge where you can drink your own beers if you'd like. No faults whatsoever. This hostel deserves a 95% rating in my opinion.

Pretty good hostel, in an awesome area but a decent walk to the nearest train station. For what was offered the price of breakfast was a tad over priced, but there are some really nice cafés in the area. A good, chill hostel really close to some cool bars and food options.

Had a great time here. Great vibes, nice areas to hang out at. Close to a bunch of places to hang out or grab a drink. The bus to central station is two blocks away. Great place to meet people. Was going to stay for two nights then ended up staying for four. One of the staff Bea even went out of her way when her shift was over to show me around a bit. Met other people in town that wished they wouldve stayed here. Couldnt see a better place to stay in Hamburg.

Great hostel and well run. Only one shower per floor is not enough when it's busy, but it wasn't too much of a problem. Atmosphere was excellent and it's a good place to hang out.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi Thank you very, very much for the rating and review. Just as an information. We have of course more than one shower for each floor. Most of the rooms have their own shower and toilet.) Only 2 Rooms ( a dorm and a private room) have to share one bathroom (shower and toilet) and one extra toilet.
