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

    Everyone at the hostel were really friendly and helpful. It's perfect if you are visiting Hamburg alone or with a couple of friends.

    The perfect hostel. Ive no desire to look for anywhere else when I travel to Hamburg. Friendly staff, a cosy informal and warm atmosphere, comfy beds, good location, a local takeaway next door selling wurst and other gorgeousnesses, a piano, and a well stocked kitchen. I love this place.

    nice location right by lots of good restaurants and coffee spots in Sternschanze and well connected to transport. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Vibe was very relaxed and chill, no frills. Stayed in a private room with my partner - an ideal spot to explore Hamburg for the weekend.

    Pros: Definitely one of my favorite Hostels so far! The common area was good at promoting socializing. The kitchen was small but we'll equipped. It was easy to get to the city center. The happy hour was a huge plus!! Cons: The 10 bed dorm I was in didn't seem to have much air flow and didn't smell the best when waking up, but it aired out quickly after opening a window. People going in and out of the dorm room often left the door open which was probably a little unsecure.

    +great price (I paid 9€ for a ni8) +great atmosphere +great kitchen +decent location -very poor restroom and shower facilities -The hostel doesn't rlly offer a free wifi -Only one shower for the whole hostel. Moreover the shower room cannot be locked -uncomfortable check out time.. Check out starts only at 9 AM. There is no possibility to check out and leave earlier in the morning -staff could be more friendlier

    Hostel is in a really good area, and great value for money if you just want a cheap place to stay. Had a nice communal area. The lockers in the room where small, but could fit my backpack with valuables in it. The only down side was the doors for the bedrooms where with key and lock, and no one ever kept it locked. Staff where super nice!

    Booked for 5 nights, moved to another place after 2. Reasons: -it was not clean -there was a creepy man staying below me, who did not make me feel comfortable. First night I was 1 of 3 women staying in hostel, the rest men -no electric in room 1st night to charge phone -small lockers -terrible showers -not initially offered a refund when I notified hostel of changing plans ‘because I booked through website’. Asked again in morning, turns out other worker was just lazy & I got €61 refund.

    My laptop got stolen. Only one working bathroom. A few older men staying in the same room as someone like me (young girl). But good location and okay staff.

    Bad security (old style key locks to your room and that’s it). Dirty, broken showers and bathrooms, extremely loud location so you won’t get any “instant sleep” on Friday and Saturday nights, the beds are hard and the pillows flat. I left after 1 night because it was just awful.
