  • Feels a bit like a high security prison. The security guy even checks what you were shopping and might deny your entry. Doesn't feel very privacy friendly..

  • Very good location, cool staff always there when you have a problem 24h/24, well secured thanks to the many doors locked with the pink card and the lockets. But one very negative point about the cleaning of the rooms: the beds where super and comfortable but please clean the bathroom, the toilet and empty the waste bins each time someone new moves into the room.

  • The hostel has a beautiful lobby and the computers available with Internet worked great. The in-room facilities are tiny, but there are a limited number of full-sized restrooms. The bed was decent and comfortable enough. The staff was friendly. There's no kitchen for guests, though you can buy food, etc., in the lobby.

  • Clean and efficiently run. Not a great place to go if you're not with your own group.

  • The booking system was down, so check-in was delayed and the key-cards did not work properly...

  • As a solo traveler this hostel was too big and without a kitchen where you could meet people. People in the bar kept to themselves and tended to be groups. Staff were rude with a couple gems. Rooms were okay. Bathrooms were teeny tiny! I had read this in other reviews and thought people were complaining for nothing but oh no, they're about the size of a toilet on a bus. The location, though near the station, was terrible. I suggest staying in one of Hamburg's artsier or student areas.

  • Very clean, safe hostel, excellent location in the center of the town, extremely close to the station (so, in case you want to change trains and have a quite night, better than in a sleeping car, this is a good choice).

  • The location for this hostel is fantastic. It is right across the street from the main train station and about a 5 min walk to the center of the city. The only bad thing I could say about it is that because of the awesome location it can be really crowded at times. At the peak check in/out times, don't even bother going down to the front desk as there is going to be a long line.

  • I think It's really a good hostel, clean and fantastic atmosphere. The room is nice but bathrooms inside room are really too small, however we use the bathrooms in the corridor, which were always free. I would have preferred that there was also a kitchen.
