Our stay was great. Everything was totally clean but the bathroom in the shared room was narrow. My girlfriend couldn't sleep because all others were snoring so we changed the room for the last night. That wasn't a problem and the staff was very helpfull. Just the offered breakfast costs a few euros but it isn't worthy. Better get your breakfast somewhere else. I had much better breakfast included in other hostels.
Great location, right next to the central train station and only 15 mins walking from all the sites. The security was very good, always someone at the door checking room cards late at night. The rooms were nice and clean, beds were ok but nice they had a light and power plug at each bed. Bathrooms were a bit small but its manageable. Would recommend, one of the better options available in Hamburg!
i lost an item in generator but i got no repnse from the stuff in the hostel, the stuff was unfriendly and impatient.
This is a great hostel! It is very well located, close to the Hamburg Hauptbahnhof, it was really cheap and the facilities are amazing, the bar is good and the bedrooms perfect. If you're going to Hamburg, that's definitely the best place for you to stay! For the hostel, I' like to recommend one thing, the staffs do a good work, but they could be trained to be more sympathetic. It's really good when you arrive in a hostel and you are received with a big smile, and that didn't occur to me.
Great hostel, very central, very modern, very clean.
Bathroom in 8-person dorm was way tiny. Wifi worked great. They had a security guard in the lobby. Only wish the luggage room was more secure, but nothing of mine went missing regardless.
The location of the hostel is fantastic! It's right outside of the central station which makes it a convenient base to set out to visit other attractions in the city and vicinity. The facilities are great and there are numerous hangout spots and evening events! The staff at the reception was prompt and efficient! Room was clean when we first checked in but it was not cleaned daily but it didn't cause any major problems. The bathroom size is manageable. Would recommend the hostel for convenience.
it's a nice place very close to the train station. i would stay again simply because it was amazingly convenient.
We stayed for only one night and really enjoyed our stay. Clean and in a great location, the hostel felt very secure.
Thank you, I enjoyed my stay. Staff are friendly. Hostel is clean and relatively quiet. :) But the toilets are extremely small. Showers are inside the room which is not the best thing because the room can get too humid sometimes. Anyway I used the one in the corridor which is bigger and more convenient .
The hostel is right off of the bus/train stop which is awesome but when we got off the bus there was a bar fight across the street, two police were walking towards the hostel, and there was a security guard in the hostel: not a good neighborhood despite the convenience. There were practically only old people here. Maybe two 20 year olds in the whole place. Despite that, it's the cheapest one in the area and right off the bus stop.
A guy took my bed and he was not willing to change back to his bed. The staff is then ask me to change to another bed. However, I do not think I should be the one to change the bed. Also, the bathroom is EXTREMELY small.
stayed for one night only but i feel its a great place in general and the price is great!
This hostel, whilst central, was very close to less than desirable elements only down the road. The rooms themselves are extremely well set up as is the eating area and the common room area. I would definitely stay here again or any generator hostel and will be strongly recommending this chain to friends and family.

The facilities are good, bed is clean and comfortable. But the bathroom in the room is sooooooo small that I can hardly turn around or bend myself. Someone kept opening the window although it is December so it was very cold during the evening. But the location is great and the wifi works steadily.
Great location for train and bus stations. Walking distance to places also. Good security and cool building with a lot of places to hang out with friends. Can use computers for free and lockers for free. Rooms were fine with really good beds. Felt very secure. Wifi was good. Most staff were very helpful. An Australian girl had a bit of attitude or at least just seemed to be more helpful to male guests.
Small ensuite in the dorm is unusable, appered to have more long term residents / conference people then travellers, no kitchen / hot water jug was a disappointment. Really close to the central station
I had read reviews about how small the bathrooms were, I agree...they're are a tighter squeeze than an airplane bathroom.
