Great hostel. Location is good for St Pauli and Reeperbahn, but a bit of a walk to get to city center. Facilities are excellent, brand new well equippd kitchen.

Weird location where you don't feel super safe walking at night but the hostel makes you feel safer because of all the codes for the door locks.

Dear guest, thank you for your stay. Backpackers St. Pauli is located in the residential area of the district. Around us live families, old people, young people.There are 2 schools, one kindergarten. We have a cinema across the road. Yes, it is not right beside the main train station but it is an authentic area with authentic lifestyle.

Very nice and clean. Good location. Only thing is, the shower is fixed and there are no mats in bathroom, which makes the floor wet after step out of bath tub. N the tub area is lil small compared to others....i feel so.

Thank you for your review. About the bathroom: We don't provide bath mats because of hygienical reasons. When you share a bath you probably won't step on a mat where others had their feet on. We recommend flip flops or other slippers for showering.

Hostel very overpriced for a dorm. It is located near the most famous party area of the city, so expect to have people coming half drunk late at night in your dorm.

Dear guest, thank you for your review and stay. You were staying on a weekend with the biggest event during mai. At that weekend all hostels are more expensive than usual. Still we were one of the cheapest. About drunk people: When people are coming for a weekend on St. Pauli - they go for party. That means mostly that they drink alcohol. Tanja Bahr Hostelmanager

Thank you very much for your review. To rent a bike nearby is no problem. We have a bike rental just 2 minutes walking distance from our hostel. I apologize but we don't have space for bikes to rent. best regards Tanja

The bar down stairs was very cool, played good music all the time. Staff were VERY helpful & friendly! Probably one of the cleanest places we've stayed. Kitchen and bathroom were good (had an oven which was nice!) Shower was hot and lot of pressure. The location was nice, but a little walk from the train station (don't let it turn you away though). Recommend

It was a very nice hostel with a chill, alternative vibe. Very clean, although the rooms were a bit small and it would be nice to have a separate toilet and shower in the room. Good location too, right in the middle of St. Pauli and easily accessible by metro. Overall really enjoyed my stay!

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your review. We do have 2 dormitories where shower and toilet are seperated. Besides they are not ensuite so the rooms provide more space. best regards Tanja Bahr Hostelmanager

Thank you for your comment. You may have noticed that all hostels in Hamburg put their prices up for the weekend. We are not the only one...but still one of the cheapest.

The staff is very helpful and kind. The location is good because you just need to take a quick bus to be in the city centre. Although in the night that I spend there, one of the heaters wasn't working and they said that they couldn't fix in the night. But the staff gave me one more cover.

It was awesome! Great facilities, friendly and open environment! I really enjoyed the staff and the plugs next to the bed. Would do again.

At first I got surprised because the reception is actually a bar, but then you get used to it. It's really close to the partying part of Hamburg. It's an average hostel with nice people staying in :)

Dear guest, thank you for your comment. Yes our reception is combined with our café/bar, which creates a nice atmosphere. Regarding to your rating please tell us next time directly when something does not meet your expectations so we can react. Thank you and regards Tanja Bahr Hostelmanager

Nice place to stay. Not far from Reepherbahn, when you are in Hamburg for a night out. The hostel has a nice little bar, where you enjoy all that you need.

Thank you for staying again at Backpackers St. Pauli. Sad, that we did not had the time for the Hokkaido Twin Ale. ;)

I recently visited Hamburg and myself and my 2 amigos stayed at St. Pauli Hostel. We were all very impressed. Amazing for location as it’s around a 10 minute stroll to the Reeperbahn, very friendly staff and the lovely lady (Whose name I can’t recall right now) recommended some really cool music venues and a few bands to check out too. Very reasonably priced, clean and a great place to stay. (",)
