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

    One of my all-time favorite places to stay. The people, the location, the price. All around good. It may not be the cleanest or newest, but it has the most character and will always feel like home.

    +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!

    Uhm. I guess I wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or go back. I thought I’d save on the cost with a independant hostel, but I met someone who was staying at a big hostel in a better location paying much less. It was a place to stay. It was satisfactory. Idk what else to say ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ maybe it was just me personally. But I wouldn’t say it was worth staying at.

    Very dirty toilets!! Disgusting floors. Smell of kitchen is everywhere, they need vantilators. Front door is always unlocked, anyone can come in not safe at all. The only good thing was location and price.
