Clean & professionally run hostel, well located in St Pauli, 10 mins walk from the Reeperbahn. Staff were super helpful and the 5 Euro breakfast good value.
I really wish the dorm doors automatically locked like in a hotel room. Collectively my four roommates and I never locked the door, but one night a random was sleeping in our room and one of the girls who had reservations had to find somewhere else to sleep. It was very surprising!
A great, modest hostel. Clean. This is a proper hostel, and has a fully equipped kitchen available to guests - which I appreciate. Guests are quiet in the rooms and social in the common spaces - exactly how a hostel should be. The key codes to lock and unlock the doors are a little odd, and it is doubtful that they are changed regularly. That means that someone who stayed there previously could probably sneak in very easily.
Really nice, well-kept hostel. Lacked a bit of atmosphere. Not the nicest part of town but walking distance to the docks and the station to get you into central. Probably wouldn't return to Hamburg but nothing against this hostel.
Near lots of pubs and cafes, close to a big supermarket, and a short bus ride into the city centre. Good security, clean, good kitchen facilities and friendly staff. A quiet hostel with a friendly vibe. Would recommend staying here.
the hostel was really cool to make friends since the atmosphere is relaxed. the bad thing was that there was just one shower for everyone in the floor. also plugs were hard to find (only the ones with lower bunk beds got some). if you are prone to allergies i would avoid this hostel because it was carpeted floors and dust really accumulates there.
Well run and efficient hostel close enough to the u-bahn but you can also walk to the city centre in 25 minutes - the lockers were large and all the rooms and facilities were clean. - lots of bars and small restaurants in the area.
Good hostel. Would stay again. No common room, just a bar. Locks on rooms are not automatic so you have to be careful to lock them. Large lockers in rooms and comfy beds. I would stay again
We spent a good time here, I liked both the hostel and the area (St. Pauli)! I would recommend it.
Perfect, friendly hostel. Easy to meet people, easy to get into town or visit the surrounding area of St. Pauli.
Didnt like it here, the staff is okay. Location isnt the best since it is far away from city center and main attraction. It would take you 15 minutes walk to the closet metro station. There isnt much facilities. Moreover, the bathroom is filled with a weird smell, and no place for you to hang anything. The room is super small, like no place for you to even do packing (I came from Hong Kong where small space. even I found here extremely small). No plugs for you to charge.
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.
Stayed here for three weeks and it was genuinely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The outside garden really helps with meeting other travellers, and the ones staying here are somehow all super friendly. And all the staff are really cool as well. Would 100% stay here again if I ever came back to Hamburg!

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.
Great hostel overall, clean kitchen, friendly staff, quiet, wonderful choice of crafted beers. Rooms are quite busy but it's cool for the price
Had a really nice stay, the entrance was intense as we checked in with live music. Clean, cosy rooms and good location.
