This hostel is advertised as being city centre, however you have to get a train to it from the city centre, this I found disappointing. Lockers are also advertised, however they are also not available in all rooms, the staff were helpful when I explained I was expecting a locker and they changed my room with no problem. It was ok, but more a hotel than a hostel, with very little atmosphere, I would not choose to stay there again.


It's not as central as advertised. It's in the center of Altona, near the Altona Hbf/train station, which is a long walk from the main Hbf/ the actual city center. Still, it's a cool neighborhood. Just check a map before you book.

Dear guest, thank you for rating us! Actually the hotel is in the city center , most of the people think that city center means it´s right at the central station but its not.

Dear guest, thank you so much for your great review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay here with us. Hope to welcome you again here in hamburg! Best wishes


More like a hotel than a hostel, very comfortable and relaxed. Near the centre of the Altona area which itself has a bunch of bars and shops, but the nearby train station also gives you quick access to the centre of Hamburg.


One of the best hostels I stayed at in Europe. Great location, very clean,nice staff and overall nice atmosphere. The even had free laundry facilities! Definitely recommended!


A good place to stay at. Very comfortable and close to Hamburg-Altona station. Very quiet.


too expensive 36 euro !!! with no breakfast included, and not really in the city centre .


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 hotel with shared rooms, but it's certainly clean, secure and cheap. It has a equipped kitchen, availeble to guests. It's located in a shooping area of the city, five minutes away from the city centre by S-Bahn.


Doesn't have a good atmosphere and is not too close to the city center, but taking the train in is no big deal. Seems to host a lot of stag parties. Wouldn't stay again because of the hotel feel.

Dear guest, thank you for taking time and rating us! Actually the hotel is in the city center, most of the guests think that city center means central station, but its not. From the hotel you can reach all the main touristic attractions. We hope to welcome you an other time here in hamburg, best wishes!


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.


Really nice hostel, more like a hotel! Facilities are great, kitchen was excellent and the staff helpful. Only downside was the bar is only open on certain days but there is a supermarket right around the corner where you could get a few drinks and use the bar area to socialise. Not a bad location for Hamburg and would definitely book again!


The location is an interesting area away from the main attractions, but near the underground railway. There was not a ton of atmosphere, but it was clean and had good internet in the room. The breakfast was worth the price.
