Initially we were put in an 8 bed room (6 beds and 2 camp beds) when we'd booked a 6 six bed room, which we felt was unsafe, but when we bought this up with reception we were moved straight away. Other than that a good stay. We have stayed here before when in Hamburg and would almost certainly book again.

It's a huge place, more of a budget hotel than a hostel. Don't go expecting a party place with loads of people hanging out but for what it is it's a perfectly pleasant place to stay

The rooms were comfortable and an excellent social environment. We particularly enjoyed the ensuite bathroom and daily cleaning. It was a disadvantage that the top bunks were not made up, whereas the bottom bunks were. Staff ranged in quality from helpful to clueless. One of our group found the 'cupboard' arrangement for beds to be odd, given that it isolated some guests from others. Staff initially did not take our complaint seriously. The lockers were shoddy and need to be replaced.

We had wrong amount of sheets in our room and had to go ask for more. The elevator broke down, the wifi also had problems and there were no lockers in the dorm. Nice lobby and good breakfast available for 6e. Place is potential but we weren't really satisfied. I can imagine that private rooms are better, it is more a hotel.

I was here for 2 nights and could store my car in the underground parking for 12,50€/night, everything was really good, the metrostation is a 5min walk, the only thing was a small kitchen

The dorm and bathroom were not very clean, and the people staying in the dorm had spread out everywhere, including on beds that were not theirs, making it very difficult to find space. The dorm was also very warm and stuffy, even with the window open and a fan running.

Gave facilities a poor reading only because the washer and dryer were busted. Staff were great and always on hand and happy to assist us, great location close to the s bahn and a market plaza.

They charged €50 a day after check out without warning for a cleaning charge because there was a bit of mess in the room (no damage to any facilities whatsoever). If I had known there would be that much of a charge I would have got my dust pan and brush out myself and swept and hoovered the room myself. I would not recommend this hostel as they will most likely charge you after check out for what they can.

Only bad things about this hostel are smelly bathroom, no hairdryer, no bath towel. I took a quick shower so I didn't let the smell in the bathroom to bother me much. Beds were comfortable and clean. There were shower gel and shampoo. We had internet connection in the room. Both check in and check out were quick and pleasant. I liked the people at the desk.

Overall a great stay. The movies are one of the best features of the hostel. The staff are very helpful and the wifi is excellent. Really welcoming hostel. The only downside is that there are only 3 bathrooms for the entire hostel.

Nice place to stay - technically it is a hotel so older adults stay here and it does not have a hostel environment. Clean, good location, and friendly staff.

All in all a good stay, the room and bathroom/s we're clean, bunk beds were comfortable enough. Location is abit outside the city but there is a train station close by and shops/super market within easy walking distance. Note - no a/c.

The payment is not how they tell when you make the reservation (A percentage of deposit and then the rest when you arrive). They charge your credit card without pre-noticing and the explanation is that that's the "new policy", but you we were not aware of that! It felt really unconfortable!!
