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!!

The stay was good, it's a nice hostel. It's a little strange though that they charged my stay on my credit card before I arrived.

Nice hostel or more like hotel. Really clean room and comfy beds. Location near Altona station. Very polite staff. Small kitchen for guests . Highly recommended.

As usual meininger is very clean. This one is very far from the city center, you kinda have to take a subway into the city. Also the bar isn't as good for meeting people as I thought it would be, it closes pretty early. While I did end up meeting people I had a bit of difficulty as a solo English speaker. A lot of large German groups stay here.

I stayed in a six person female dorm. The beds were very comfortable and there was a bathroom in the dorm room that was very clean. There was a tv in the room, a table with stools, and enough lockers for every person. I was impressed with the room and the cleanliness. It was also very easy to find from the Hamburg Altona station. I would definitely stay there again.

The hostel was nice and clean. But the main problem is that there aren't enough sockets near the beds. I slept in the top bunk in an 8-person dorm and I found it frustrating that there wasn't a socket next to my top bunk and most electronic cables aren't long enough to stretch all the way down to the bottom bunk and I didn't want to leave my phone charging next to someone else's bed overnight. That was the only major inconvenience, never had battery in my phone. Overall, good hostel.

Very crowded and very busy with large groups of students. Lift unable to cope. Dryer not working for laundry.

This place is a hotel, not a hostel. that means you get hotel quality service and expectations. They were at all times helpful and knowledgeable about the city and things to see/do. Plus with the world cup on, the bar became lively. The staff interacted with guests while they passed by and the rooms were incredibly clean. Even with 4 roommates, this place was nicer than any other hostel I've stayed in.
