Property Description

The Backpackers - St. Pauli is located in the heart of St. Pauli. Almost all sights are within easy reach, most of them even on foot. The Reeperbahn is a 10-minute walk away and the river Elbe is about 15 minutes away. If you walk in the other direction, you can reach the trendy "Sternschanze" district in less than 10 minutes. If you need further advice, our friendly staff will be happy to give you the best insider tips.

The bar on the ground floor invites you to a cosy coffee or a fresh beer. The outdoor area and the communal kitchen offer the possibility to get together with other hostel guests.

Due to the current situation, we had to adjust our opening hours, so please let us know your arrival time. If necessary, we can leave your room card for you.

Attention! Parking spaces in Hamburg are very rare. In our neighbourhood there are only residents' parking spaces. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a parking space and advise you to arrive without a car. (You can also get around Hamburg without a car. HVV, DB rental bikes, e-mopeds and e-scooters or MOIA shared taxis will get you from A to B.

Hope to see you soon,
Your team from Backpackers St. Pauli

    Great hostel with even greater staff. The rooms were clean and the facilities good for socializing. I liked the are a lot, good restaurants and cool parks. Not too busy but not too far from activities and concerts either. I would definetely stay here again just for the hospitality of the staff :D maybe the hostel’s bar could be opened earlier and closed later.

    A good hostel, one I've stayed at 3 times now. Spacious rooms, clean bathrooms etc - but no breakfasts anymore? Is this temporary due to corona still? Seems a shame, hopefully they return soon

    Stayed two nights and had no issues. Beds are confortable, the kitchen is well equiped, the terrace is very cute, just be prepared to go up and down the stairs a lot. The neighborhood doesn't feel like the safest at night but it's kinda close to the subway station so it's fine. The only thing I would complain about is finding another person already on my bed after going out of the room for a bit, when I still hadn't checked out. Aside from that, the hostel is a very good choice for short a stay.

    Rooms were a little bit dirty, there was old blood splatter right next to my bed but room bathrooms were great and I did like the location

    Perfect location, has a bar downstairs which is good to meet others, would be better if the hostel arranged some activities to encourage more guests to socialise but still made some great friends here. The rooms are very dusty and beds aren’t that comfy bathrooms were nice and clean. Could do with more lights in the kitchen because it’s very dull but does the job :)

    The bunk beds are super old and my bed had a missing wood piece underneath so I slept on a big pit because the mattress was falling in between the wood sticks. The bed linen is overused and the towels provided by the hostel had hair on them. There are no power outlets next to the beds. The reception was friendly. The location is good but don't expect to get a good rest in this place because of broken beds.

    I think there was a staff shortage but it was not the most welcoming experience. I waited outside on the kerb to check in because it was not staffed until 2pm, every other hostel I have been to I could at least wait inside in the lobby area. I got my key from the receptionist and no introduction to the hostel, no wifi password, directions for kitchen, etc. My room was ok, a little on the old side (beds, lights, etc). But everyone was nice and the security was high

    I'd only stay here again if I have no other choice. The place is lacking some basics you expect from a hostel. No baggage storage, no waiting area in case you arrive soon, no late check-out. The showers are horrible as well. No shower head and the lowest water pressure I ever experienced, and they have the audacity to claim it's for guests' benefit. Kitchen very small, The wi-fi doesn't work on mornings and evenings, location badly served by public transport... not worth the money at all!
