It's close to central station. Rooms are big and clean. Toilet and shower are way too small.


Almost excellent everything. Bathroom cleaning everyday would be my suggestion, for an "excellent" rate in "cleanliness"!


I would stay again


Generator hostels are always pretty great. I love the location too!


Really big and busy hostel. There's not really any quiet chill out areas, only the large bar area and Cafe booths at reception. Didn't have a meet people/backpacker vibe. The rooms and clean, bunks comfortable and bathroom fine. Great location Didn't like how there wasn't a kitchen

Felt a bit more like a hotel than a hostel. Security on the door searching bags for alcohol was not a great first impression, but it was very clean and easy to get to. Prices in the bar/cafe are a bit extortionate however...


Was great staying at this hostel. Although they kept us waiting for 2 hours after the check in time room was great. Located very close to station. Really easy to talk to people in common area and has a decent bar.


I was in a dorm and the shower/toilet was suuuuper small! It was also inside the room, so it was quite noisy. You could barely turn around. Even the sink was too small to properly brush your teeth or wash your hands. Apart from that everything was fine. Good wifi and location.


As per other reviews, the lock on the toilet was broken, bit awkward in a shared room. Also we requested food from the menus on two consecutive nights and were told the kitchen wasn't open, apparently due to there not being enough staff available. Defiantly pack ear plugs (we had an old guy snoring like a jet engine and the street noise). Great location, very close to train station.


The sinks in bathrooms are extremely small.. It's almost impossible to use them. The security guy can be irritating sometimes.. Location is excellent! Staff is friendly!


A very large hostel, easy to find and get to and from. Helpful and friendly staff. Good facilities and security. Such a large and busy place will always be rather 'bland'.


Nice atmosphere! Good size of rooms - a bit small bathrooms though.


Awesome location. Staff were helpful and overall the hostel was a great place to stay.


close to the train station which is very convenient clean wifi in the room


one lady behind the desk in particular was rude. staff generally unfriendly


Everything is great apart from 1.5 -2 square meter toilet and 1.5 -2 square meter bath room, sink is too small so that water splash everywhere.


Comfortable and clean dorm. But the shower room and toilet were tiny and the locks on both the doors were broken. The staff I met with helpful and I had a lovely breakfast.


good hostel, for visit hamburg the position is ok. from the outside the hostel looks really cool but the rooms and the services in te rooms are so small

The hotel itself is nice and big with a good bebedbebed, but the area is quite dangerous and its very risky to go arohnd there after dark, it is close to all translortations which ia great but if you are planning on going out till dark reconsider.


It does the job if you're there for a night which my friends and I were. It's not a long walk from the train station which is really handy and there's lots of places to eat or go shopping near by. The hotel itself is lovely but the toilets are small like a prison cell and 2 of my friends dropped out to stay elsewhere in Europe so I was unable to get refunded.
