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.

    Free luggage storage available. No kitchen but you can get hot water and tap water from the bar. Bring your own sheets or pay for them. It's about 15 mins walk downhill and uphill from the train station.

    I was at this hostel for one night. The staff was very helpful when I checked in just after 12am, after my train had a 4.5-hour delay.

    The place is fine to stay for a night or two, the room was clean. The morning receptionist on my arrival date I had to chase for her to actually even acknowledge me. The rest of the staff in the afternoon and the next day was accommodating

    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.

    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 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.
