Property Description

Instant sleep is an independent hostel in Hamburg with its own and a little unconventional style, located in the quarter 'Sternschanze'. Since 1999 we welcome guests from all over the world.
Enjoy our relaxed atmosphere: about 50 persons can stay in the beds of our eleven differently designed rooms. So we are a good address especially for people travelling on their own or in small groups and looking for room to sleep.

We are a classic backpacker hostel: with colourful, but simple rooms, a well equipped kitchen and communal bathrooms on the corridor. The hostel's heart is our lounge: here you can relax and meet other guests.
Do you want to be able to cook your own meals? And have good conversation with your fellow travellers? You've come to the right place!

There's a communal room where you can eat, drink and play games with others. We don't provide breakfast but you're welcome to cook in our fully-equipped kitchen.
We have free coffee and tea!

There's two bars below the hostel so it can get pretty lively around here, but there's no curfew!

We look forward to meeting you! View House Rules

    Overall the hostel was really good. It was a fair price and in a decent location too. It wasn’t the most lively but I guess that’s more to do with travelling in November. The kitchen and toilets/showers were all good and the rooms weren’t cramped. I’d recommend it

    Nothing out of this world but overall nice place for a short stay. It’s not in the best area, but it’s accessible to public transit and there is a Lidl a block away. Common area is very cozy and comfy to hang out in.

    Great, open-minded hostel. The kitchen and common room were top notch: spacious and welcoming. The facilities were very good, but for some reason there was no door to the bathroom so anybody walking through the hall could see right in. The shower curtains worked well, though, but the showers could be better. No sanitation problems, though. The room I stayed in was large and well planned, but there was quite a big intersection outside the window, so it could be a little noisy in the morning.

    Absolutely lovely staff, the hostel is very welcoming and homely to anyone visiting. Showers were slightly annoying as was the lack of people locking room doors behind them. Regardless, was an excellent way to chill out and see Hamburg.

    Instant sleep hostel is perfect for anyone looking for a cheap hostel in a great area. They give out free earplugs which is nice since there is a club downstairs. The showers for men had no door which was kinda weird.

    The hostel itself was clean and had a good atmosphere. My room though smelled like the inside of a gym room and it was quite loud at night so bring ear plugs if sound bothers you at night.

    Bad facility - no locks in the room; no hair dryer (only one in the whole hostel and thus has to be borrowed everytime we wanted to use); no wifi in our room (staff told us only half of the hostel can have internet reception, which is ridiculous). Unprofessional staff - we had to wait outside of the hostel to check in just because the staff didn't hear us. Also when we tried to communicate our needs of borrowing the hair dryer, she seemed not to care and even thought we were bothering her.

    Interior and is old and the blanket had stains on it. There is absolutely no privacy at rooms. I did not enjoy my stay, because there was no hot water in the shower. For my second night I found out that there is one out of all 3 showers (the middle one) that has the hot water. It's not very nice to shower in the cold water when it's cold outside. The reception is open only until 8pm and you can't do your laundry on your own. I don't recommend.
