I really liked this hostel, it was too bad that I only had one night here. The location was not the best. It was not bad, just a bit of a walk from the metro and too far from the center not to use public transportation. The hostel itself I really liked. There was a common room with a kitchen and a bar that included a back patio. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The room had a good amount of space and the beds and bedding were very comfortable.i would recommend it.

The staff was really friendly and there are 2 separate locks for each the entrance door & the dorm room. Clean and a really chilled out style that fits in the area. Good for backpackers or students in my eyes. If silence is needed you'll get it in the rooms, whilst there is a nice public area. Furthermore free BBQ stuff which is definitely a plus!

Great security (Almost too good, even with a key code I found it hard to open the doors). There are good common areas and the place is kept clean. Location was good, St. Pauli is a lovely place and it's very easy to get to other parts of the city on public transport. Wifi was great all over the hostel.

Pros: great location, great staff, good beer in the fridge. Cons: shower had a leak that squirted water all over te bathroom floor, and beds are really squeaky. Spend some time at the reaperbahn so the squeaky bed won't bother you as much ;)

This hostel is okay. Agree with a prior comment about the surrounding area - as a solo female traveller I did feel somewhat uncomfortable being near the Reeperbahn. Found it a little difficult to meet other travellers. Bathrooms weren't always stocked with soap, no towels/dryers to dry hands. Staff were friendly and helpful however, and the hostel is kept very secure.

Great kitchen and social areas. Clean place. The only thing might be that wifi sometimes doesn't work that well.

Definitely a good option for a couple of days in the city, the atmosphere is good and in the common spaces it's easy to get in touch with other travelers. The only remark, the wifi a couple of didin't work properly, but in a matter of hours it was back to work.

Good atmosphere, nice outside area, lounge and kitchen although lacking seating. Not all beeds have a plug socket.. Have to pay extra for key for locker. Hostel generally average however it is also in the St Pauli area which is great for bars etc but not great for solo female travellers as it is also the red light district and full of drunks leering at you. Didn't feel comfortable exploring the area on my own.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. Extra Power sockets are available at reception. The money you pay is just a deposit and will be paid back at departure when you hand it back.

Great hostel, a little out of the city centre but located in a very cool part of Hamburg, close to the port and the Reeperbahn. Very easy to meet fellow travellers, clean to boot. Lockers available to lock your stuff, code needed to enter rooms. Very friendly staff. Prices increased quite dramatically from Thursday to Friday to Saturday, which would be my only issue, but maybe this is normal for Hamburg. Would highly recommend staying here.

Dear Guest, thank you for your rating. Prices increase in almost all hostels for weekends in Hamburg during high season.

Good Hostel, stayed for 1 night with my wife. One problem, you get a small note to put om your bed so other people in the dorm can see its taken, but not all get this info. So when we came back to sleep, the beds we had made, was taken by others!

Dear Guest, thank you for staying with us. Every Guest receives at ARRIVAL acces codes for room, front door and WIFI plus the sheet for the bed. We apologize if the guests in the room ignored it and took your bed.

Great hostel! The staff was very helpful with all my questions, they recommended restaurants and places to go! Only thing is i didn't return my key the night before and their reception doesn't open until 8, so i lost my key deposit. They should have longer reception.

Dear Guest thank you for your review. Our opening times are 08:00-00:00. We recommend to hand back the key the night before and use one of the public lockers.

I know hostels are cheap for a reason but they still should be clean. The radiator by the window was completely filled with dust, it was really gross. But the lady who worked at the hostel was really friendly!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, thank you for your review. This always help us to improve our standard. I have checked in which room you stayed and advised the housekeeping to clean that radiator immediately. But please again: Let us know while you are staying when something is wrong. Whatever it is, give us the chance to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Thanks. :) regards Tanja

Cool place to hangout, the bar is fun too. Beds are quite comfy and most rooms have a small patio as well. Bit far from the city centre but the bus system works great
