Property Description

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.

    Decent hostel in all areas. Social areas (bar and outside) a bit small but the hostel was never that busy so wasn't a problem. Only 10mins walk to reeperbahn main party area and metro line and Lidl/Aldi and atm all nearby. Kitchen was all good to though we did encounter the infamous fridge thief and beer collector known as Merrick ;) . Wasnt a crazy party hostel but easy enough to meet people (met some cool folk) for some drinks and going out if solo. And cinema across road handy also.

    Highly recommend this hostel. It’s not perfect by any means but as hostels go it’s great. The st Pauli area has a really cool funky vibe even though it’s not “central” in the city. The rooms are fine with 2x toilets and a shower per 8per bunk room so no issues there. Security is good with 3x swipe card doors to go through to get to any room and lockers for every bed.

    Really great hostel! In the heart of St Pauli so there's a great community vibe. Very chill and friendly. Not hostile like some other hostels with many rules! Spacious room and big locker in the 8 bed dorm. Both rooms on my floor were full but I never had to wait for the shower. Kitchen was good. Only 10-15 mins on S-Bahn to central Hamburg, but St Pauli and the Reeperbahn are like a little city in themselves so don't be put off by the location - feels like the centre. Lidl 5 minute walk.

    Very nice staff and a cool vibe here. A bit outside of the city, but there is still plenty to do in St. Pauli. Beds were quite big which was a bonus. Kitchen had nice facilities as well.

    Really fun neighbourhood, lots of bars etc. The hostel is OK. The only issues I found were limited amount of plugs in the room and no luggage room - I had a train late at night and they could only offer me to keep my stuff in the kitchen where anyone could take it. The staff is friendly. Lockers in the room are huge. Overall good value for money.

    Bed bugs! Came back to a sign in the room that the room had been disinfected and to stay out until 5pm. Took our towels to wash but didn't leave a note, so had no towels to shower at night. Was eventually told that they had come into contact with harsh soap so were taken to be washed. No mention of the bed bugs from the staff - only found out the next morning when I woke up to my three other roommates freaking out because the bed bugs were STILL THERE. Terrible deception by hostel.
