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

    The common room was a great place to meet people! Kitchen could use a bit of a clean but it’s what you expect in a larger hostel. Close to everything and in a hipster area of town. Would recommend!

    Great vibes, great location, great people, great rooms. I will definitely be staying here again. Everyone was so friendly and I never had to worry about my stuff getting snatched. I highly recommend

    We slept right above a very loud club that made the beds vibrate; other than that, it was great!

    actually i did late night checkin, and did checkout in the morning, so did not spend much time over there, so far i like the place as per the price of bed.😊

    Very Good

    Hostel felt safe and was in a good location, could walk 10 mins to some nice local places, or 40 mins to the centre. Also near some good party streets. A small hostel, I was lucky and got a quite room, however I know others are above a loud bar. It also has a small kitchen area and good communal room, where on the first night an improv night was run. Lockers within the rooms are quite small.

    Very Good

    The hostel is situated in a nice area with many bars and restaurants. With my friend I stayed in a double bedroom for 4 nights. If you want to be able to sleep on a Saturday night, don't stay here! The music was too loud that ear plugs don't work, and it went on until 3 AM and started at 6 AM again. From Sunday to Tuesday there was no loud music and it was pleasant staying here. It is easy to meet other people in the common area.

    The place is just old and dirty, bathrooms are very bad, wi-fi only works in the kitchen area. The music from the bar downstairs is too loud on the weekends, so you can't sleep until 5am. Good things though are the location and laundry service (3-8pm, for 6 euros). I would only consider staying there for 1 night max and only during the weekend. But honestly, you can find way better options for almost the same money.

    My train was delayed due to something being on the tracks so I called to let them know I wouldn’t make it. They assured me that it was fine and they’d set up a late check in for me. Without calling me back they sent an email asking for info. I didn’t respond, due to no internet. When my train finally arrived at 12:30am (4hrs later than scheduled) I saw my email informing me my accom was cancelled. Had fun organising a new place at 1am. No genuine attempt to reach me was made.
