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.

    My stay at this hostel was short and sweet! There isn't a great deal to do in the area, but the hostel is in close proximity to the train station, making it easy to travel on the metro. Luckily, unlike other A&O hostels, there were lockers in the room and hairdryers in the bathrooms. I checked in early and was able to leave my bag in the luggage room, which was locked by reception. Only downside is that there is NO KITCHEN, but there is still a great atmosphere at the bar. Would recommend!

    The locationis perfect, right in the center. I was impressed by seeing the guy cleaning the room (it's really a clenning process, diferent from other hostels). The staff is just ok... Now the bad part is the eletrical sockets... there was only ONE almost in the sealing for a 6 bed room, there were two more inside the bathroom in which we had to share with everyone and leave our eletronicals under the vapor from the shower... very frustrating...

    The room itself was fine, I booked a private one so I could catch up on sleep. The staff had told me it was ready, but when I went up, there were three people frantically cleaning the room and arguing with each other. I waited a few minutes and then I could enter the room. Generally, as well, the staff weren't very friendly. 3 to 5 of them might be standing around the desk and none would go out of their way to help you. They could definitely be more professional and hospitable.

    Not sure if it was the weather or what, but yhe whole place felt sticky inside and it was uncomfortable. Nothing seemed very clean and just felt damp overall. I had a terrible sleep.

    The hostel is supposed to be close to Hauptbahnhof, but it’s hard to get there and far from the station. Especially because of all the construction work. I didn’t feel especially safe in the area. When I got there, the staff was very inefficient and not especially helpful as my key card wasn’t working and I had to go up to my room and down again 3 times before they gave me a new card. The room was fine, clean but too few plugs for all the guests in the room. Bed linen not included in the price.

    "You have rated this property lower than we expected, to help improve the service, please leave a comment below" - stay there yourself and find out. Silly how you have to describe a negative review on this site. Very smelly, anyone can walk in and out, surcharges for everything. But good location and comfortable beds.
