I would not recommend this hostel at all. Yes the rooms are cheap, but the property is so far away from the center that I think you're better off booking closer to the center and seeing more of Hamburg (plus with added costs like sheets, locks, etc. the price is comparable to closer hostels). My room did not have a lock on it at all, so I didn't feel safe during my stay. The space was dingy and depressing - no atmosphere whatsoever. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else!!


Thanks loved this place


The lack of security in the rooms is made up for by the trusting staff. Although out of the city, it is easy to catch the S-Bahn into town. If you want somewhere a bit cheaper, this is a great option.


I really liked this hostel. The staff was extremely polite and helpful the entire time and the hostel has a nice atmosphere to it. It is a bit outside the main city center but is easily reach via a couple of different ways. Also, for those inclined to focus in this aspect, the wifi works quite well.


I stayed here one night only. The thing that let's this place down is the location, but it's a 10 minute walk to the nearest s-bahn station then 15 minutes to the city centre. The staff are very helpful and maintain a cozy environment. They also have a dog who does tricks!


Nice staff who is very friendly and make you feel home, but quite far from the centre...and the bathroom and toilet are downstairs


All of the facilities are in the basement, whereas rooms on the ground floor. Only one electrical outlet per four beds in the room. The showers didn't have enough places to hold clothes for both you and the other person showering without putting them on the wet floor. However, all of the receptionists were nice.


Best value in Hamburg with really friendly staff. It is located a bit away from downtown/reeperbahn, but is only a 15-20 minute U-Bahn ride to those locations.


At first glance, located a fair way from the centre & Reeperbahn, But only a ten minute stroll from the S Bahn. Room was extremely small, four bunks in a 'prison cell', but if you want somewhere 'just to kip' it's fine. The communal kitchen was spotless, & perfect to use, a Lidl just down the road. Staff very friendly. Not a 'party' hostel, but will certainly use again.


I find this Hostel very good and up to standard.
