Score from 2025 reviews Very good
The bathrooms are entirely too small. They partitioned them in order to separate the toilet and the shower. There's no just space for either.
Location next to munchen Hbf was perfect, bar was good, breakfast was reasonably priced and ok variety, bunk beds were comfortable and warm. It was good to have lock up safes under each bed and a power adapter in each bed.
Staff were not overly friendly but ok, toilet in dorm smelled slightly of urine and the shower was tiny but you can use the common one down the hall.
Freindly staff. The design of the whole place. Lugage room, breakfast
The doors to the stairs are vey large and every time they shut it banged loudly and made our wall shake. The wall light was in the middle of the bed space and made it difficult to sit up in bed.
Everything was well-planned and functioned well for a short stay.
Doors banging I'm the night very loudly.9o
Location was great,just a 2 minutes walk to Hauptbahnof. It was clean,not too much noise. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Bathroom and the shower were too small. You could barely move in there.
Located right next to main train station, cafe and bar good
Loud people outside at night
The.best thing was the location to the.main railway station. It was easy to.find because of the large.sign on the outside of the building. The other important thing was the securityear person at the front door that was very good.
great hostel, nice bar, friendly staff
Right next to the main train station, great in-house bar, bed was very comfortable, in-room facilities were great, good security and the staff was very helpful. I would definitely stay again.
nice installations good environment a lot of nice people the location is excellent.
rooms are a bit small and bathroom also but in general good
Two inexpensive things which can improve the comfort: - placing 1-2 folding chairs and a small table - there is enough space in the room - washing the face is a real challenge. Removing the shelf between the mirror and basin (in the bathroom) will make easier using the basin. Few small shelfs can be installed vertically between the basin and shower. In this case they can be used from both basin's and shower's sides. The distance between lower and upper bad is small - I hit my head two times :( For the rest everything is good.
Helpfull staff and perfect location. It was good that you needed an access card to get into the building!
Really big place, central, safe.
Cleanliness Security Simplicity Common space was large and comfortable
No Kitchen No hand soap anywhere.. Miniature bathroom facilities
great location, just meters away from the central train station which gives you 24h access to the city :)
Location, clean and good atmosphere...
Bathroom too small...
Perfect location right opposite to the train station.
Tiniest toilet and shower I've ever used, it's only a cube without any ventilation, but they do have a larger communal one outside the room. Other than this everything's good!
Same to Army Barracks!!!
excellent location. near the train station. youthful atmosphere. i excellent lounge terrace.
modern design, friendly staff, perfect location in the centre of Hamburg, just next to the central train station, coffee bar 24h open
bathroom was very,very small
The Hostel is very modern. Great Location...
Staffs are not so hearty..
This is very reasonably priced accommodation in the centre, right next to the station. It was very clean, efficiently run, with good coffee and tea. The beds were comfortable, lots of hot water.Lots of outlets for cheap food near by.
It is very close to the red light district so women on their own need to be sensible walking around. I didnt have any problems with room mates, they were very considerate but you should be aware in shared rooms people come and go at different times, some getting up very early.
Good bar and food, really nice and helpful staff. Well decorated
The private room was TINY. So small it felt like a box and was depressing. The bathroom is like a plane toilet. The shower is so small you can hardly move. Quite expensive for a hostel and definitely not worth the cost. Breakfast was very average.
