Location isn't prime. While it is close to a major station there isn't many attractions or good bars around. There were no lockers in the room. Lockers were available in the lobby for free but it was an inconvenience. There's only one elevator so waiting is inevitable. Pretty average hostel otherwise. Bar on the lower level wasn't utilized the weekend I was there. Shower was nice and very clean.
The staff was very professional and friendly, and insured that the atmosphere was nice. There is a guest kitchen that is OK. Rooms could be more dorm adapted (some problems with communal use of lights, power sockets distribuition), but furniture/setting is nice and cheerful.
Very nice, staff exceeded expectations, room was nice, Hamburg was an excellent place to visit.
Great breakfast, helpful staff. Only drawback when you are assigned a top bunker you have to make the bed yourself and it requires acrobatic abilities.
Nice dorms, very clean and spacious. Bit out of the city centre, but only 3/4 stops away on the train which is free. Awesome turkish restaurant right around the corner. Breakfast is bit pricey but worth it. Stayed in a 7 bed mixed dorm which is usually fine, but there were two 60+ year old men staying with 5 girls. Felt very uncomfortable so would not stay here again.
I found there to be a very little atmosphere. This is more a hotel Than a Hostel. Everything was clean and felt quite secure. The location wasn't perfect but there is a train station within a 10 min walk. The bed was comfortable and at the end of the day that's what counts.
A pretty dull place to exist, but if you're getting enough stimulation from the city it's a fine place to sleep. I know hostels can't control the roommates, but I had a very unpleasantly awkward "conversation" with a rather drunk and old German roommate.
Was an alright experience, nothing bad really ;) They accordantly took my reservation card out of my bead so I lost it, but other than that no real problems. HOWEVER, it says "City Centre" but it is lying. It is actually technically in Altona, and quite the ways walk to get to the real city centre.
It's a very clean and safe hostel, but could be better located.
The room itself was huge, we were in a 6 person mixed dorm, and it felt more like a hotel room. Lockers in the room but you need your own padlock. Bathroom fine, only drawback was the tap had to be pushed in every 15 seconds or so for continuous water in the shower. Have to catch the train into the main part of town but the station is very close so not much of a hassle. Very isolating though, not much of a common room area.
It's a nice enough place to stay for some nights, close to altona station, around the station there's a great african restaurant with an all you can eat lunch deal, and very tasty food!!go there if you can!

Bit out of the city, but really close to S and bus station. Reeperbahn is walkable. Kitchen is great. Not so great for meeting people though. Like a hotel with dorm rooms.
Meninger is a comfortable hotel with dormitories. Not suited to independent travelers as there is no social atmosphere, the staff are robotic
Very nice place to stay. Definitely more of a hotel than a hostel. With that being said, I had a 6 bed room to myself the first night. Very clean, with shower separate from the toilet! Staff were friendly, however gave me incorrect information that museums are closed on Sunday's - when I went on Monday to the museums they were closed then not on Sunday. Guest kitchen small but useful. Weird having washing machine in kitchen
Very clean hostel with modern design, unfortunately located in really boring area, a little bit too far from all the interesting things. Also it is not a good place to be if you are travelling on your own or if you just want to meet people. Staff was rude and not really helpful. At least two boys working evenings/nights during first 2 nights of our stay,

When I arrived the reception staff were super friendly and nice, made me feel at ease. Check in was very simple and smooth. The room was very clean and quiet, the only downside was that there was no locker in the room so had to use the safe downstairs. Also the shower only stayed on a short while. However these were minor things in what was a very good, happy stay. I think I got lucky! I always felt safe, and especially liked the room within the room for privacy. Thank you! Recommended.

A very nice, well managed hostel. The rooms are ultra clean and the bathrooms as well. No noise fromthe street at night since it's in a little sideway path. Close to the train station. Excellent staff!
Besides being very close to a train station the Hostel it's not at the city centre, actually, it's quite far. Beyond that, everything else is perfect, the staff is friendly and helpful, it's very clean and the rooms are excellent, it is more like a hotel than a hostel.
It's not a bad area... But a bit of a hotel feel... Many shops , train station and restaurants in short walking distance... All up it was good
Our stay here was great, check in was fast, which is what you want after a crappy bus ride. The room was large, we were in a double private with ensuite. The bathroom was a lot larger than we expected, heaps of room for my girlfriends junk. The location wasn't too bad, it's just a little bit more of a trek than I would have liked.
