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

    Friendly and welcoming staff, helpful with directions and places to visit. Rooms were good, a little bit noisy due to there being a bar down below but was manageable with ear plugs. Would recommend anyone staying here as main attractions are only a short walk away.

    Neat, tidy and simple. Nothing extravagant but a cozy atmosphere and sufficient facilities to make yourself feel comfortable. Was impressed by bathroom and shower cleanliness with the above combined giving you great value for what you pay. Common area was effective in creating a social space (while many sought silent WiFi time). Also fell in love with the Schanze area in which this hostel is located, featuring a variety of cool bars, restaurants and markets. Highly recommend.

    Toilets and showers were clean . Bunk Beds were on the quieter side and decent so that was good . Unfortunately didn’t catch much of an atmosphere when I was there but can see it being good if the right people are around . Service is good for after hours and late check in (which is past 10pm). The surrounding area buzzes on Friday and Saturday nights and getting central is a quick train into town. Only 20 mins walk from the Reeperbahn too for the late nights .

    Wifi in rooms doesn't work (at least in R-rooms).Shower: you need to close only with the curtain - you feel not safety, water automatically turn off after 7 seconds, not comfortable.In women WC DOORS DOES NOT CLOSE FULLY and someone can enter to your cabin, because they close like doors in bars in films about cowboys.Deposit for key 20 euro - it's very strange price.Very very soft pillows - non good for head.Also one night was more expensive in double,without reasons. Overall: do not recommend.
