Excellent hostel, very close to S-Bahn station, supermarkets and many other shops. The room is really big.

Dear guest, thanks for your comment. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Cheers! Your Meininger-Team Hamburg


It is a hotel with shared rooms. Definitely not a hostel. If you are traveling alone and want to meet people, it is not so easy to meet people here. But it is a good hotel.

This is a good hostel in general. Nice location (just outside of party area, nice and quiet, good areas and stations on short distance) Atmosphere we experienced is that people are a bit distant, but you can have (bad) luck with that. Bad thing: we paid lots of money to stay (during NYE), but my friend had to sleep on a couch :( Bad value for money. Also bad is they put double bed in a dorm (room 412). Can be really awkward and annoying and I discourage any hostel to choose this config!


Nice, clean. Friendly staff. Good breakfast.


It was the worst hostel that I have ever stayed in my life so far. When I requested for drinking water, I was asked to fill my water bottle in the toilet. Expensive and POOR service!!! Never choose this hostel again!

The arrangement of the beds in the 8-bed mixed dorm is wired. There are two single beds placed next to each other and act like a double bed. It is a bit inconvenient for small group visitors. and the staffs are not so helpful but they are nice.

This hostel was much more like a hotel, but still had a really relaxed vibe to it. The staff was always really helpful, they cleaned the rooms every day, and the lockers are huge and secure. The kitchen was a bit small, but it was doable. My only issues were 1.The location. Although it's a really quick walk to the Altona station, the constant tickets to and from the city center do add up. 2.They over charge on some of their drinks. Hot water and a tea bag was €2.50! So bring some with. ;)


Nice hostel, clean and spacious rooms, nice and clean bathrooms. Nice kitchen and good breakfast. Staff works well. Lockers in rooms should be fixed though, most are broken and therefore useless. I'd recommend this hostel.


The hostel was very close to city, about 10 mins train ride. But it was a combination of hostel and hotel. I didn't see any people hanging around the common room and bar for a drink. So it was missing a social atmosphere. But otherwise, very clean hostel, really good breakfast fot €5.90. Highly recommended if travelling with friends.


Great stay. Hotel at hostel prices


One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in


It was very safe, but I still felt I would have liked to have a locker in the dorm. You have the option to pay for one at the ground floor.


I had great days at this hostel, though maybe a locker at the room would improve sacurity.
