Perfect solution for those willing to discover less touristic and sponsored spots of the city - St. Pauli is a really lively and exciting area. Recommended!

Good hostel, the location is interesting since it’s in the St Pauli area which is the more “alternative” area of Hamburg. It’s about a 25-30 minute walk to the center of Hamburg.

Good hostel in a great spot for exploring St Pauli and Hamburg. I really liked the breakfast options, very affordable and available until midday! It was quiet while I was there and staff took the time to chat with me but I bet it gets rowdy in the bar during summer because the drinks are quite cheap! The lockers require a deposit which is annoying as reception is not 24 hours to return it. Sink pipe in the bathroom was leaking and it made a mess of the floor but that's about my only complaints.

Typische kleine Hostelzimmer. Bad leider mit einigem Schimmel versehen. Schade ist, dass die Zimmer scheinbar sehr selten gereinigt werden so gelebte der Boden, es lag ein Schuh rum, der niemanden gehörte und im Bad stapelten sich Zahnbürsten und Duschsachen die ebenfalls keinen Besitzer mehr hatten.

Great hostel! In a really groovy location (near nightlife and good food), only a bus trip or trin ride to get to the centre of Hamburg. Great atmosphere bar is great to meet people if not in the rooms or kitchen. Staff are all nice and its good value for money.

Close to the Reeperbahn but thats pretty much the only advantage to this hostel. I ended up staying with a friend because the staff were so unfriendly and made me feel so unwelcome.

Die Zimmer und Einrichtungen sind fantastisch. Ich liebte auch die Lage. . . nahe Reeperbahn und anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Ich fühlte, dass das Personal freundlicher hätte sein können. . es könnte eine Kultursache sein. Es gab einen männlichen Angestellten, der völlig komisch war. Wenn Sie das Personal vergessen, ist der Ort perfekt.
PS: Vielleicht nicht der perfekte Ort für Alleinreisende, die Leute treffen wollen, denn die Menschenmenge hier ist gemischt und es gibt keine Veranstaltungen im Hostel

I was a little shocked about the reception is actually in the bar(at night), because when i got there it was about 8pm. The staff who helped me with the check-in was kind of nice. The most thing i love of the hostel is definitely the kitchen!!!!You can cook your own food and meet new people there!Highly recommend if you love beer and nightlife, because there’s a bar downstairs!

Mein Aufenthalt im Hostel war richtig schön, die Mitarbeiter waren alle super nett! Auch die Lage ist richtig gut, wenn man die Straße runtergeht, kommt man bald an vielen kleinen Bars und Cafes vorbei, die gerade am Abend gut besucht sind und insgesamt eine total angenehme Atmosphäre verbreiten. Ich kann einen Aufenthalt hier nur weiterempfehlen! :)

Hostel is close walking distance to the red light district and close to supermarket and bars/ restaurants. About 40 minutes walking to the centre, not sure by public transport as I never got on. Staff were helpful however I came into the reception at 1:30pm (check in at 3:00), I waited but I was never once acknowledged before 3:00pm. Not even a hi or a smile until after. I think prior to check in, I should be made to feel welcome. The kitchen is great but no bowls.

Great location! Close to bars, restaurants, and grocery/shopping centre. The kitchen was also the hangout spot and everyone was very friendly and inclusive. We showed up and were surprised with a private room with only two beds! Th doors were all opened with cards and unfortunately our room card reader died so we were locked out for a moment but the staff quickly fixed it. There’s also a cute little cafe attached to the hostel where they sell homemade treats. Very good place for young people!

Overall good hostel. Pros: helpful staff, big lockers in rooms, and cheap breakfast. Cons: small common area (less conducive to meet new people), small lockers to place backpacks in before/after checkout, key to get into room, expensive beers in common area (4-4.50 Euro).

This hostel is not cheap. They charge extra for you to use bedding but you aren't allowed to bring your own bedding - why not just incorporate it into the cost? I also think given how expensive it is you shouldn't have to make your own bed espec as it's not a fitted sheet. Kitchen is fine. Bathroom is fine but the shower head isn't attached to the wall, you have to hold it up yourself and there's a passive aggressive note about how it saves water, annoying because you pay $$. Staff unhelpful

Safe hostel in a quiet location. Short walk from plenty of restaurants and bars. Did not like the bathrooms - a handheld shower head with no wall mount (designed to discourage guests taking a long shower). Hired a towel and got an tiny old scratchy thing. Bit stingy.

Staffs seem to be really helpful. The cleaner even do the bed so that I can have an early check in as I arrived from a morning flight. Being assigned to this popular single bed next to the windows proved costly as I was bitten by bed bugs. The management act and deal with the issue quickly and I was given some refund for the problem caused. No grudge to the hostel itself as I can understand most hygienic issues are caused by fellow travellers, who are strangers to shower and laundry.

I was a bit aprehensive about this Hostel at first but my opinion quickly changed and I truly had the best time!!!! I met so many amazing solo travelers like myself just by hanging out at the bar downstairs!!! Rooms were fairly large with their own washroom which is always a perk. The location is great if you want to discover St-Pauli and conershop hop all the way to the Reeperbhan with a group. I would definetly recommend if you are into social hostel.

This hostel was in a great location - near bustling bars and restaurants! However, the hostel had many drawbacks. The dorm rooms were smaller than I have ever experienced (been solo travelling for a few months), were also dirty and dusty. My bed linen was not properly cleaned - had dust and black hairs! Charging phone in dorm was difficult. The facilities were not ideal - the kitchen was tiny and very limiting in cutlery. Personally, I found the staff short at times, especially regarding change.

It’s hard not to fall in love with this hostel, the hostel bar is a little German pub with super likable staff. Super close to the reaper Bahn and a short bus away from the city center. Clean facilities and good deals at the bar!

I informed these people that the credit card I had booked with had to be canceled due to fraud. Although the roughly dozen other hostels I booked for my trip all told me not to worry, and I could just pay with the new card upon arrival, these people insisted I had to pay in advance.

I was not going to send credit card info by email, so they said I would have to arrange for a bank transfer. I asked to receive a Paypal invoice, but they refused.

It took more than a MONTH of having to pester these people just to reply to my emails at every turn to get the information together that was required to pay them by bank transfer, partly because the account they insisted on using is not able to receive internet bank transfers, and it had to be done as an old-fashioned wire transfer which involved a significant service charge for me.

After some time later after having to pester them for a confirmation of payment, they tell me they only received partial payment. I do a bunch more running around to confirm the correct amount was sent (which needed to be done in person at my branch: old-fashioned wire transfer), to be told that their bank must have charged them a service fee to receive the payment. I inform them of this, and they demand that I must pay their bank fees for them! After all that, and paying my own fees, the entire thing at their insistence when they could have made a PayPal account and sent me an invoice in 10 minutes!

I refused, and they canceled my booking, telling me they refuse to have me as a guest, and now I have to find a new hostel last-minute. The card they refunded the money to doesn't exist anymore, which they seem to have forgotten was the reason we had to go through all that in the first place, so I may never get my money back! Unbelievable!

Comfortable beds, not cramped rooms. In a good location but about ten minute walk from U3 line stops (easiest way to get there from central station). Unfortunately they were doing repair work on the road, so drilling right outside our window early in the morning. Social hostel with outdoor spaces to chill but not a party hostel. I’d recommend!

I was mighty impressed with this hostel - travelling on a cheap budget you know never to set your expectations too high, but this place was a very pleasant surprise with just how comfortable it was. The room was extremely spacious, as were the bunk beds themselves, with a good deal of privacy as well as particularly comfortable mattresses and bedding. I'd say this was probably the most comfortable hostel bed I've ever slept in, and I have stayed in a great many hostels worldwide.

The room felt particularly cosy and relaxing, and while the design of the beds allowed for excellent privacy the room was nevertheless a very sociable environment - other guests were extremely friendly and easy to chat to at any time; this was one of the most communal atmospheres I've ever encountered in one multi-bed dorm. There's plenty of space to store your bags without getting in other guests' way, and the private lights make it very easy to arrive back late at night and settle into bed without disturbing other guests. The bathroom area is also very clean and comfortable.

I only went into the adjoined bar briefly during my stay, but when I did the barman was very friendly and made me feel very welcome, and the atmosphere was particularly chilled, sociable and relaxing, together with a great music soundtrack.

Location-wise this hostel is in the perfect place - in the middle of a quiet, relaxed residential neighbourhood yet only a few minutes' walk from the Reeperbahn and the centre of party nightlife in Hamburg. This is particularly convenient as it means you can walk to the best nightclubs and bars of Hamburg each evening without having to spend money on underground train tickets. And the cosy and comfortable feel of the room makes this a particularly pleasant place to return to after a late night on the town!

Overall this place is excellent value for money and one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Keep up the great work; I would definitely come back here and will definitely be recommending this place!

Wir waren 4 nächte im hostel. das hostel ist sehr zentral gelegen. man hat ca 8 min zu fuss zur nächsten ubahn station.
das zimmer und die küche waren beide sauber. ich schlief auf einem hohen stockbett, dort hatte es leider keine steckdosen. unsere taschen konnten wir kaum verstauen, da das zimmer etwas klein war für 6 personen.
insgesamt war es eine etwas kühle atmosphäre im gesamten hostel. da ich aber nicht alleine unterwegs war, war es für mich nicht störend.

The place was clean and functional. The staff (blond short-hair lady with glasses) was friendly and helpful. In the 8-bed dorm, there are no power outlets on the top bunks or mini shelf/ pouch by the beds to keep your stuff. Kind of inconvenient but is alright I guess. Our room had a balcony which was nice. I went in early September and atmosphere was not great . Bar was almost empty most of the time, maybe they should do a happy hour or something so everyone knows when to hang out

The hostel is located at St. Pauli, my fav hood in Hamburg (together with Sternschanze). They are very lively districts with lots of music venues and cafes around. The hostel itself was nice and also the staff. The reception works also as a bar with friendly prices, specially for breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the linen was fresh. If I had to complain about something it would be the bathroom, which was pretty humid. The fan was just working a few hours a day..

This was quite expensive compared to my other hostel experiences, but I assume this was Hamburg as this was the only hostel i stayed in there. Overall a great check-in experience, really friendly staff and a nice bar. Security is good as there are two locks to go through to get to the rooms. Good location too, only 5 minutes to some nice bars and restaurants. Really liked St Pauli too. Good hostel.
