Property Description

Dear guests, please check our restrictions and regulations of the City of Hamburg before you book your journey. Hamburg does not allow to accomodate tourists concerning the COVID-19 Situation.
Exceptions are if you are travelling to Hamburg on business, medical or family related reason. Therefore we need a written confirmation of your employer, medical service or family.
We regret this deeply but this is the situation in Hamburg at the moment.

Our rooms may only be occupied with a maximum of 4 beds. This means that we do not offer rooms for 8 or 6 people in order to be able to maintain the required minimum distance of 1.50m.

Wearing a mask is required in our public areas and we ask our guests to disinfect their hands with the hand disinfectant we provide when entering the house.

In addition to the hand disinfectant, there are also dispensers with surface disinfection in the rooms for more safety.

The guest kitchen may be used - but only with a maximum of 3 people at a time and taking into account the hygiene measures (hand hygiene, sneeze label, cleaning of the used surfaces and materials with the disinfectant cleaner provided.) Food must remain in the bags provided and be labeled with the name and departure date .

If you have respiratory problems or similar symptoms, we must ask you to stay at home.

We would like to point out that our employees are entitled to end their stay in the hostel without a refund if the measures are not followed.

We hope for your understanding and keep you up to date on our website for innovations.

 We are happy to answer your questions via or

We are there for you every day from 12:00-18:00. If you cannot arrive during this period, we ask for information at least 48 hours before arrival. We ask for your understanding that unfortunately we cannot take night arrivals into account.

Explore the district and get in touch with St. Pauli.
Learn about the history of this special area of Hamburg. From the beginning as the ropemakers worked by the river
and gave famous Reeperbahn its name over the 60ies where the Beatles made their first steps on stage to the middle
of the 80ies as Hafenstraße was squatted and now.

After a night in our cosy beds enjoy our breakfast buffet at the hostelcafé, enjoy our quality coffee or fix your own food in our hostelkitchen.
In the evening our hostelcafé turns into the meeting point to plan the nightlife. From the movie theatre(OmU) just across the road to life music or clubbing. We are located close to the most venues/clubs/bars. Warm up with snacks and drinks including a nice range of handcrafted beers from Hamburg.

Bedlinen is inclusive but please make your bed. Sleeping without bed-linen, using own bed-linen or sleepingbags is not allowed. Please understand that sleeping bags will be stored separately and handed back at departure.
Our rooms are partly equipped with ensuite bathroom or balcony. For your belongings we provide lockers in the rooms for each guest. Every bed has its own reading light.

If you are under 18 - sorry but we cannot host you without parents or a guardian.
Please note that we are not suitable for groups, especially stags. View House Rules


We've got a laid-back kind of vibe here at Backpackers St. Pauli. Spend lazy afternoons in our lounge area using the free Wi-Fi and compare travel snaps with your fellow travellers (we reckon you can get the most Instagram likes!). Or go for a coffee and slice of German cheesecake in our café bar – switch things up to local craft beers and schnapps in the evening. There's also an outdoor terrace where you can hang out with new mates. Get some burgers (Hamburgers, naturally!) cooking on the barbecue before heading out to make the most of the city's famous nightlife.


Arriving by train into Hamburg Hauptbahnhof? We're only about 20 minutes away by metro if you take S lines 1, 2, 3, 21 or 31 then walk for about 13 minutes. If you're flying into Hamburg Airport, take S1 for 34 minutes to Hamburg Reeperbahn, and our door's a 13-minute stroll away. On sunny weekends, make your way to the beach at Strandperle – it's about 30 minutes away via bus 36. The legendary Reeperbahn district is a must-see – think fluorescent lights, lively clubs and fast food – and it's only a 14-minute walk away!

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms are simple and comfortable, with a reading light for each bunk and self-lock storage lockers that are big enough to take even bulky backpacks. The dorms are mixed or female-only and most have en-suites – some rooms have balconies too! We've got plenty of fresh towels and sheets, just hire them from reception.

Extras and activities

As well as offering light bites (including a tasty buffet breakfast) in our café, we've also got a kitchen where you can keep your beers cold or make hot meals and snacks. Stop by reception and pick up a free city map to help you find your way to the beach or the River Elbe. We've also got bike parking, so if you hire one for a few days, there's somewhere safe to keep it overnight.

    I had such a wonderful time here! It was my first hostel experience and I was staying with a friend during our train hopping trip. We couldn’t have asked for a better place. The staff were friendly and helpful and we found new people to hang out with during our stay. Our roommate was the one that told us about a bar crawl which was our favorite part of the trip! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Hamburg especially if they want to be in the hip, party district.

    I would book at this location again in the future. Classic backpackers hostel and I imagine that it would be more lively when Coronavirus is not a factor. Loved the location and the lobby/patio area. This hostel is in a very hip part of town so you can walk to practically everything you need. Lots of dust in my room, on and under beds and the bathroom had no soap. There was an explanation for not having a hook for the shower head, but honestly these are small things that customers pay for.
