May be open lobby one hour earlier, at 7am, could be profitable.

The hostel was OK: nice atmosphere, WiFi works and I used the kitchen everyday (it's also easy to meet new people there). It's not close to the city centre but it's just a 2 minutes walk to the bus stop or the Reeperbahn.

It was a good hostel that provided the basic things you need, in addition to a cafe and bar in the lobby area. The room was a bit tough as the 8 people in the room shared one toilet and shower.

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 kitchen area was great! Well equipped, clean and inviting. A good area to meet other travelers. The cafe area upstairs was confusing. I felt like I had to order something to hang out up there. Cool area though. The staff sometimes seem bothered by questions and almost "too cool" to suggest things. I really enjoyed my stay in Hamburg however and I do recommend this hostel. It was clean and in a great location and I was able to meet some fellow solo travelers who became great friends!

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.
