very good hostel for backpackrs! a little bit far from the city center but totaly worth it


Nice hostel in a nice location. The kitchen was cleaned and so were the bathrooms. The staff was nice. The only thing I didn't like was the 20 euros deposit for the key. But I would definetly recommend it


Very nice hostel, well-situated. The pillows were too small :-(


A very welcoming atmosphere and the staff were very accommodating and trusting. A lovely place, great value for money. I would definitely reccomend.

The location of the hostel is really great that's why I would recommend it. But it's not the cleanest hostel for sure and when it comes to the staff, it really depends of who is working... some were very friendly, the others were suggestive of doing us a favor in doing their job. The atmosphere is nice but I was missing heartiness!


Instant Sleep was awesome. Easily one of the most vibey hostels I have stayed in- spacious dorms, good kitchen and excellent common area. Average showers but worth it for the location and other facilities. Welcoming and friendly atmosphere and just general good times. Thanks, would stay again.


Solid Hostel. Clean and good staff. Unfortunately not really the most social hostel, but there's a few bars right outside, and many more right in walking distance. Location is amazing, close to the S-Bahn and amazingly close to the local scene.


Excellent location if you want to explore some of the more alternative areas of hamburg and only a short walk to the nearest metro. The staff could have been a lot more helpful though. They don't even have city maps so make sure you pick one up from the airport or station!
