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.

    The staff were very friendly and fun to talk to. The hostel is great for lone travellers as there is a great atmosphere and a nice outside area to meet others. Hostel is in a great location. Beds, toilet and shower are good. I wish I had stayed longer!

    I came to Hamburg for the Rotary International Convention. Backpackers St. Pauli proved to be an excellent place for me to stay. It is less than one block to a bus stop, which enabled me to get anywhere in the city thanks to the excellent public transportation. It was easy walking distance to restaurants, stores, bars, boat rides on the Elbe River, and even the notorious Reeperbahn. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

    The hostel is well located, as everything is within walking distance (except the train station, but that’s only one bus away). The staff were very friendly, and the kitchen is really well equipped. The bunk beds were very loud and creaked anytime someone moved, but other than that they were comfortable.

    The hostel was convenient to my needs and very friendly staff. My only complaint was the ladder steps were too far apart for this short woman.

    I was expecting similar quality hostels as in other cities where you have friendly staff. Besides for the younger staff the lady who managed the place was always grumpy and complained. The hall ways smelled of smoke, my door had a hole and often didn't close properly after you left. Also the shower was odd, a hand held shower head, no mat meaning the floor was often wet. They had wifi but didn't say it was on the bed slip. The spot is ideal, bar is well stocked and has a good kitchen.
