Nice surprise of the state of the room, very clean, tidy and a modern appeal. Quiet setup with an average view of the city. Parking the car was quite handy and made it a lot easier to stay here, as was the close proximity to the Altona train and subway station. With the addition of a couple of nearby supermarkets and bakeries, our stay was an overwhelming success.

MEININGER is perfect. It is 10-minute walk to the metro station, which takes a further 3 to 4 stations to the city centre. However, everything else is perfect. Receptionists are helpful and even permit my friend paying a dormitory fee to live in a private room (because he booked a dormitory). It also offers a kitchen for guests. I like it!

There were BED BUGS in my bed! It was horrible! I had health problems for more than one week!

Very convenient place to stay for a visit of Hamburg

This hostel is contemporary and new, with perfect cleanliness and bright decor. The tiny kitchen also doubles as the common room, which makes it rather cramped at mealtimes. My 8-person dorm had an ensuite bathroom. Close to the Altona station and many shops, but not within walking distance of Hamburg's central station and surrounding streets.

The stuff was really nice. Every time we needed something, they helped us. The location is great, and it's a really clean hotel. The only thing os that the breakfast is too expensive, but there's a kitchen that you can use, so it's not,real a problem.

Altona' s not really the cool part of town, but it's right by the subway station so that's not a big deal. It's clean and comfortable and not very expensive and a decent crowd comes here. Quiet for sleeping. The internet can be difficult, but I liked this place enough to come back

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, always on hand to answer any of your questions. And the fact that they did speak English was a bonus for me as I speak very little German. The atmosphere was good, different from other hostels I have been to in the past. I thought that the single rooms were a little over priced on the weekend, as you don't get breakfast or any tea and coffee making facilities included in it. But that didn't put me off and I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. We are happy to hear you had a pleasant stay with us, our staff was able to help you and that you enjoyed the atmosphere. We are sorry that the prices were rather high for single rooms during your stay, these prices fluctuate, according to how much availability we have, so there is little we can do about that. We hope that you will stay with us again during your next trip to Hamburg. Your MEININGER Team Hamburg

I was very happy to stay at the Meininger. The location was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The only thing I was not so happy about was the fact the my room smelled very bad of smoke. A NON-SMOKING would have been nice.

In typical Meininger style, the rooms were very spacious, modern and comfortable. The location is a little out of the 'city centre', but not so much that a great walk along the harbour (or a short train ride) can't fix. Staff were consistently helpful and friendly, with great recommendations on things to see and do around all parts of the city.

Really great, We booked a mix room and they had two beds in a private room inside, but we weren't early enough to grab it, There was a loud snorer but that's not the hostel's fault. Not too far from the train.

The hostel is located pretty close to a train station. The 6 bed doom was huge! Large windows for lots of light, a comfy bunk and shower and toilet in the room was nice. The wifi was generally pretty good in the room and around the hostel. Having a kitchen is so useful and saves a lot of money, however there often weren't enough bowls etc. Not so much of a social atmosphere unfortunately, most people just did their own thing or were in large groups. Staff were helpful although a little obtuse

Short train ride to the city centre. bar was fun with changing specials but no atmosphere. i got to my room and had a choice of sleeping on a fold out bed or next to a stranger on the singles that were a couple of inches apart. very clean happy to of stayed here.

Considering this cost, I'm sure this hostel is one of the best hostel I've ever met. Kind staff, friendly atmosphere, very close to station!! Except the fact it's sometimes messy a little bit but It doesn't matter. If I have a chance to visit Hambourg again, Absolutely I'll choose this hostel.

Really clean and nice place, good position and easy to find out. Closed to Altona station, so well connected with other parts of the city. Recommended even for single travellers.

People at the reception were very friendly and always ready to help: The rooms were nice and clean, but they should be a bit warmer when it is cold in winter!

We enjoyed our stay. It's perfectly suited for big groups (we were with 24), lots of space to chill out. The staff was also very friendly, that's a big plus!
