I've just come back from Hamburg... Specifically the Reeperbahn. The kiezbude was formally a brothel and now plies it's trade as an extremely well priced hostel. It was a bit daunting in there at first, they have replicated much of the decor that would have been in place while it was a working house but let me stress this is... More

We stayed at the Kiezbude hostel with 8 people for 3 nights. The two 4 people bedrooms we booked were simple but clean, also the shared toilets and showers were kept very clean all day long even with most of the rooms fully booked!! The staff was very friendly and helpfull to us and told us all the nice places... More

Once you get used to the decoration (lips that look like female genetalia or.. Just genetalia), the place is good if you are used to noise. It's clean and well located ( straight in the red light district) and calme at night. The noise comes from outside.

We only booked this because we were with a group of 12 guys and we just wanted to be close to the Reeperbahn. The location is excellent for that, but if you are not in Hamburg for the Reeperbahn, go somewhere else. The area is a bit dodgy. Everything is clean and the staff is helpfull. WiFi works fine in...

I was dreading checking in because i booked before i checked the reviews and if i had had read them first i wouldnt have. Goes to show you have to take all reviews with a pinch of salt. The girl who checked us in, Vivi, was lovely, friendly and gave us so much info including streets to avoid at night... More

After reading reviews on here, myself and the stag decided to book our party into here for a night and witness the famous Peter for our own. Upon arrival, it was exactly what we wanted a seedy looking place that raised a few eyebrows with our fellow party goers. Spoke to the friendly lad at the desk who signed us... More

We stayed here for one night on a stag do (we checked out after less than one night!) On arrival our we were 'greeted' by whom we assumed was the owner, one of the most aggressive people I have ever met, who was also very rude, abrupt and very patronising to our party. He either didn’t like groups of men... More

I came here for my stag do in April 2012 and after checking out many other places decided a former brothel would be a laugh for a stag do. Dont be put off by the pictures on the website as it doesnt look appealing. On arrival the receptionist got a guitar out and started playing Get Back by The Beatles... More

I recently stayed at the Kiezbude hostel in hamburg and can say with some confidence.... It was a mistake!! Upon arrival the novelty decor and the idea that you are staying in an old brothel is quirky and quite funny. The member of staff that greeted our party on reception was a well mannered and helpful chap. Unfortunately this is... More
