This is a good quality hostel that feels much like a hotel except that there are dorms. Mostly youthful clients, like school groups, but there were seniors too. Predominantly German guests, but quite a few internationals too. The name of the Hotel should be changed to Meininger Altona to avoid confusion. I liked the location near a major metro station...

I've stayed at Meiningers before and I've always enjoyed my experiences there. Mabye they are all upgrading to hotels now but the shared rooms aren't too crowded and the hotel rooms are spacious. There is a Strassenbahn which goes from the airport to the hotel's closest station (Altona), which has a Lidl and a Mcdonalds. Closer to the hostel is... More

Stayed in a 5 bed dorm. Boozy lads weekend with some sightseeing! At £40 each for the 3 nights, its unbelievable value. Situated a 5 min walk from Altona station and a few S Bahn stops from the main attractions. Its quite clinical/sanitised, somewhere between a hostel and a hotel, so probably more suited to groups rather than solo travellers... More

This hostel was ok, nothing really stood out at the hostel and you can feel that it's a chain.Nothing really is personal or cozy about it. Staff was still polite and helpful. Rooms were clean and quite big and breakfast is included in the price. If you still want to party and meet people I would maybe not recomend this... More

The hotel is located on a walking distance from Altona train and metro station. A 20min walk from the famous area Reeperbahn. We resided in a 6 person dorm, It was very clean and I liked that the toilet and shower were separated. Also, the room was very spateous.

I booked this hostel for 2 nights in a 6 person mixed dorm. Usually I don't mind being the only girl in a room, which has been the case several times as I've been travelling alone in Europe for a month, but one of the other guests in my room made me feel uncomfortable.

Despite the hostel being clean and comfortable I wouldn't go back or recommend. They firstly couldn't find our booking based on my name - or the other 3 people who booked rooms in my party!

I stayed in a 4 person room with friends for a weekend in Hamburg. There seems some ambiguity as to whether this place is a hostel or not. Having stayed in numerous hostels worldwide I would say this is slightly more of a hotel. It is also popular with families as well as groups of friends so doesnt have a... More
