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

    I enjoyed staying in this hostel because I liked the kind workers, the cleanliness of the place, the fun atmosphere with different instruments being able to be played in the common area, and the fun balcony. The free coffee was a plus and I would definitely stay here again!

    Great hostel for a nights rest. I had a private room and our bathroom shower handle was broken. Other than that I had a good experience. There are two bars downstairs but neither seemed particularly exciting

    Very Good

    Had the potential to be a brilliant hostel stay, but almost the whole place was full of school children. This is not expected or wanted by hostel goers - everyone I spoke to said the same. Staff very friendly and helpful but unfortunately this wasn’t enough to turn it around. I’d actually chosen this hostel based on ‘atmosphere’, which is the most annoying thing!

    Everything was clean and the staff were friendly enough. The location was pretty good but if you want to go to the city centre/Reeperbahn you will probably need to take public transport. Main flaw was the lack of atmosphere, this didn’t seem like a great place to socialise/meet new people so I wouldn’t recommend as a solo traveller (but of course this could’ve just been a matter of who was there at the same time as me). Overall okay, just nothing mad exciting

    Quite loud at night which made challenging to sleep. Also, the window was broken, so it always stayed open.

    I was a late check in and didn’t receive pants, I slept on the mattress protector one night and woke up with a rash on my legs. I’ve never had that happen before, ever. Night two I had sheets, and no issues. Bathroom’s didn’t have paper towels, and at night 2 out of 3 bathroom stalls were locked, which was bizarre. My room was over a bar, lots of street noise but earplugs were provided so that was a plus. Staff was very nice.
