The location is fairly good being opposite the sbahn station and a short walk from the reperbaun. The cleanliness of the room leaves a lot to be desired and there are some questionable stains on the beds and walls. This didn't really bother me as we were on a lads weekend and would be getting drunk a lot and not... More

After reading some of the reviews on here, I was a little hesitant, but it really wasn't that bad. The bedrooms were not very clean; under the beds had probably never been cleaned, one of the pillows was covered in blood and I'm pretty sure it was mould on one of the mattresses. However, rest of the hostel was clean... More

Not to be too judgemental the location was good. It was opposite an S-Bahn station and close to various sites. This sums up the pros of Wira Hostel. What struck me first was the ignorance of a particular member of staff. He was incompetent to say the least and really summed up the stay Wira Hostel. After threatening to deport... More

I suggest you shouldn't stay at Wira hostel. It's unclean and I had problems sleeping because of small bugs (like bed bugs, small and brown color). My friend had problems, too, because there were a lot of this small animals, which were biting and leaving red itchy bites on skin. I don't reccomend this hostel at all, eventhough it's cheap....

Thias is a very simple hostel, don't expect it to be very confortable but with a great location, within a walkable distance from the fishing market and just in front a subway station not to go with you want privacy for a romantic vacation, but good if we want a low budget place to stay with friends.

I travelled all across Europe staying at hotels, hostels, camping sites and the Wira Hostel in Hamburg really stands out as one of the worst places I have ever seen. I was traveling through with five friends of mine, and we spent one night at Wira Hostel, in one six-person room. We arrived at 3pm, rang the bell, but no... More

I stayed here for one night with some friends. Trying to make things cheap we booked into one of the largest rooms. Although the room was fine, it really was very, very basic.Towels and linen weren't included and the room was constantly dark as there seemed to always be at least one person asleep! The toilets were relatively clean, although... More

Amazing location and super clean with really nice friendly staff. It is also cheap and cheerful. It made me feel slightly like I was in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest though. The place was deserted and the corridors were wide and white. You get the idea.

I did Interrrail (that's the Spanish word, don't know if it's the same in other languages, and it's a travel around Europe in train) with some friends, and all of us agree: Wira Hostel was the finest place we stayed during our trip. It's clean, cheap, beautiful, has a big and good kitchen and the personal is really nice and... More
