Property Description

In November 2007 the a&o in Hamburg opened in close proximity to the Central Station. The former Kontorhaus was once a warehouse for goods from the most varied countries. Today guests from all over the world can stay in the modern rooms of the second largest a&o in Hamburg.
The a&o Hamburg is located 500 meters or just one underground station from the Central Station. With its central location the a&o is easy to reach by car, train or even by bus and is located between Speicherstadt and Binnenalster. A perfect starting point for excursions in the city!
The building of the a&o Hamburg Hauptbahnhof is characterized by the typical hanseatic architecture with a red brick fassade that fits seamlessly in the cityscape. In addition to the modern rooms, the centrally located a&o Hamburg Hauptbahnhof also offers a large dapper lobby and an ASTRA bar with a party cellar both exuding a historical charm.

    Located quite central, clean rooms with lockers for a fair price. Not a typical Backpacker Hostel, as it is huge and more like a hotel, not to much room for meeting new people but all in all totaly worth the money.

    Very affordable; lovely bar area in lobby where you can watch tv and meet people. Location (neighbourhood) may seem sketchy on the outside at first, but it is very close to the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) in Hamburg, so location-wise in regards to the city centre, you can't go wrong with 15-20 euros! It is 3.50 euros extra for your linen, which I haven't seen before and was strange, but who brings their own linen anyway? (no offence to those who do; very thrifty and resourceful of you)!

    Clean and comfortable. No coffee /tea in room but could buy in reception. Efficient, professional staff. Key card to get into corridor of rooms and into your own room. Close to Hamburg Central Station.

    Good location with easy access into the main streets of Hamburg. There was just one staff member who on three locations was very rude, wasn't very helpful, and talked about customers (including myself) to other members of staff when they were in front of them.

    I like this hostel, but don’t know why every time I stayed here, there are always some creepy guys in the room. Once was like, someone turned on the big light at 3:30am and totally didn’t care about others who were sleeping, once was like, two old men in the room who stared at me when walked by. This is not what I experienced in other hostels where friendly ppl are all around. Nevertheless, the facility and location are satisfying, the staff is also nice. Need to rent bedsheet if don’t own.

    Facilities and sleeping area was fine, but it felt more like a hotel than a hostel with no real vibe or atmosphere. The location is about a 10min walk to the city centre which is needed if you want to grab a bite to eat as well as the surrounding neighbourhood isn't super nice.

    This hostel provided good locker sizes and that’s about it. The powerpoints were located in very inconvenient positions. Very loud construction in the morning. No mirrors outside of the bathroom. Shower and toilet were in the same room, which is also very inconvenient. Beds did not have personal lights. Side note for younger travels, this hostel has a much older age group. Overall, will not be staying again :)

    The bed was dirty and there was lots of hairs on the bed and used paper towels were flying around. Price was very cheap but need to consider that one has to pay extra (3,50€) for bed sheets.. Wouldn’t go again
