Dodgy location but that's to be expected when it's so close to the train station. Got my shopping bags searched to make sure I wasn't bringing food into the rooms. Slight overkill and rather invasive.
Pros: Great hostel, one of the best I ever been. 24 hs security and you can't get in without a key. It's 200 mts from, Hauptbahnhof (HBF) train station and from ZOB bus station. Good breakfast for €4.9. Excellent beds, with individual light and plug. Wifi in the room! Big lockers. Clean room. Cons: Some people say small bathrooms, it's true, but you have bigger outside the room. The worst thing here is the staff. Bad faces, bad attitude. It looks like they were charge per word spoken. Poor.
More like a hotel. Very nice. More than what I expected!
I was in a "mixed dorm" with 8 beds. It ended up being me (female) and seven other males for three nights. Not exactly mixed. Everything else was fine though. Nice and close to the Main Train and Bus Station.
This is a Generator hostel done right (unlike the Copenhagen one). Wifi was great, laundry a reasonable price, staff were super friendly and very helpful, the bar always had a good atmosphere, there were separate showers and toilets outside the main room, and the hostel in general was worth the money. Had a fantastic time here, and will definitely stay here when back in Hamburg! Would be nice if there was a reasonabley priced breakfast though..
Maybe just work on your directions from the train station. It's right next door to it but most people I stopped to ask, didn't know where it was
The hostel is great! I think is the best i've been so far. The reception and bar have a great atmosphere. Rooms are clean and a detail is that you don't have to pay for bed linen, make the bed or take the sheets with you when you check out. The only thing is that the bathroom and shower are super small, but they are inside the room, which is nice. Overall i'd defenitely recommend this hostel!!
The toilet and the shower were very small.
