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!

Overall good stay! They put me in a different room than i had originally booked (but lots of hostels do that). Liked the location (15min from trainstation and in a cool neighborhood with lots of bars/cafes). Staff was also really nice. The beds are quite old and the whole bed moves when the person above you moves. Also quite loud till early mornings because people hangout on the balcony all night (room was directly above balcony)

Worked excellently for an overnighter before an early flight. Close to supermarket. Probably would have felt safer in a female only dorm. Clean but the overall vibe was a bit dirty, but kitchen was very well equipped and I met a couple of people. Toilet door didn’t shut properly when locked and were communal. Overall you get what you pay for and I had no real problems during my short stay.
