NOT A HOSTEL - a budget hotel.. No common room whatsoever - the cafe is a separate business next door. Although the lady at reception was super helpful in recommending good bars and venues, absolutely zero atmosphere here. Breakfast in separate cafe expensive even for Hamburg. Facilities were clean and security was very good. Definitely a no no for solo travellers who want to socialise.
Perfect all around except for two major offences: 1) No lockers, or anywhere safe to put your valuables, anywhere. You have to either keep your stuff with you or out it under the bed and hope no one steals it. 2) €8 for breakfast (which is usually free, or else a few euros) is a joke.
Was pleasantly suprised at this hostel. Although the location wasn't smack bang in the centre it was in a great area with loooads of great bars and places to eat, close enough to walk to the centre too. The rooms were really clean and not too small. The staff were really nice and helped us find our friend after a big night out and even posted some stuff we left in the room!
For the price I paid, I didn't expect that much quality. Staff really nice and helpful. Rooms very comfortable and spacious. Right in the centre of Hamburg! :)
