Amazing experience, amazing town, amazing hostel. No complaints whatsoever. Thank you.


Great location, a 5 min walk to the nearest transportation station. Awesome view overlooking the harbor! Very clean hostel with a great free breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.


the location is perfect and night view is just great!


Great location and allowed us to stay in emergency beds when we needed an extra night because of train complications.


Clean hostel, staff were friendly and helpful, Great location, basically on top of a train station but plenty of stairs that wouldn't be fun if you didn't have a backpack! wifi was average, only worked in the lobby. Full of school/under age kids, but that was expected.


Super nice people helpful and safe environment and great breakfast


Great location for this hostel, just at the u bahn if you go up the stairs and right at the docks. This is not really a 'backpacker' type hostel - there are a lot of school groups and elderly groups which stay here. The rooms are good with very large lockers. Probably not for those looking to meet other travellers.


PRICE LISTED IS NOT THE PRICE YOU PAY!!! BEWARE So I have stayed in over 70 hostels world wide some YHAs included. Often booked through this site and sometimes others. This is the first time ever the price you are told is due on arrival was not the price. The price here is for YHA members only!! so if you are a non member you will be charged more. This is not stated clearly when booking but apparently somewhere in the description. Worse the hostel staffs response was simply do a bad review!


Very helpful and enthusiastic staff. Good location (although if you have a heavy case, it is hard work getting up all the steps to the hostel from the S-Bahn station). Clean. Excellent breakfast and evening meal. Lovely atmosphere.


Good staff and facilities but breakfast could have been better, the bread was so hard to chew. They should have toasters and more choices on what to eat. Being assigned to a room with older people, was not a good idea because lack of common interests.


As with any Jugendherberge, the clientele are often school kids or families on trips. The location was unbeatable, right next to the harbor, the facilities were quite nice, lots of nice views. They even had a single traveler quiet lounge, which was awesome as a single traveller, when I needed some time to myself. Would definitely recommend.


The shared rooms did not have enough facilities. The furniture is heavily amortized. Otherwise staff have been very helpful and friendly. Location is also very good.

Everything was very good. I will come back!


Good location and very good breakfast. Wifi doesn't work optimally in all rooms, but there is a large common area where it works


The location of the hostel is fantastic, and well communicated by tram and train. The rooms are quite clean. But, the shower water was tempered, sometimes cold. We had a very disgusting night in the 6 bedroom because our partners were mental ill (alzheimer disease) and decided to shower twice at night at 4:00 am and 9:00 am in the morning (with the subsequent noise. They didn't let us rest properly, and I think the hostel should revise who is in condition to be respectful with the other guests.


The hostel is nice, safe and clean. The staff is very helpufll and the location is perfect, just few minutes walking from any attraction.
