Reviews for Backpackers St. Pauli
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 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!
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.
