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.

This hostel was a bit of a let down. First of all it is no where near the city centre like a 20 Min train then a 15 min walk ( not good with luggage ) and there is nothing around it either. It is also really small and dingy. The worst bit is it is like 1 euro less per night than nice hostels in the centre. Its just not worth the money


Very good :)
