I've been sleeping there for 2 nights in early april. I've got lost because I arrived pretty late at night, but the receptionnist was still at the FO waiting for me ! This hostel is well placed in the city, I walked from there to sankt pauli, the marina, and the city center. This hostel helped me to have a... More

Only the bare minimum was available at this hostel. It's not in a great location (it's above a loud bar), the sheets were torn, the staff was incredibly rude, you couldn't lock the bedroom doors, wifi was only available when sitting in front of the front desk. Just stay away.

I stayed at this hostel with a colleague seven nights over a two week period, and I would happily return. It was very clean, tidy, very quiet (despite the area) the staff were very friendly, had a kitchen with fridges, pots/pans and utensils provided and, in general, the hostel had a very cool and chilled out feel to it. It... More

I stayed in the Instant Sleep Backpacker Hostel in March 2012. The hostel was clean, quiet and quite centrally located. My two friends and I stayed in an 8-bed-dormroom which was quite clean and with several lockers you can use free of charge (bring your own lock). I slept next to the windows, and at times there was a bit... More

The location is just great, downstairs you have the schanzenviertel with all its bars and restaurants, and you dont get the noise of it in the Hostel!... More

We turned up near midnight and initially struggled to find the door as there was no sign. The guy at reception was very nice and spoke very good English. We were asked to give an identification number and he wouldn't accept driving licence but we were lucky that I had my passport with me. The room we had was made... More

First off, we had the address but couldn't find the door to the hostel as there wasn't a big sign on any door near the street number. I accidentally walked into the males-only massage parlor next door. Good thing I don't embarrass easily. There is a tiny sign on printer paper in the door for the hostel. It's the one... More

As you said: atmosphere was bad. No room for chilling out with other travellers. Service was rude and they could not even answer: good morning! Walls were like made of paper. And rooms vere extremely hot. Overall quite boring experience. Nothing compared to Berlins hostels. But we loved the city! :)

It was alright but not fantastic. It felt old and used - in need of some TLC. Good location. Well-equipped kitchen. Quiet at night, in spite of being on a main street. Comfortable beds although pillows were small. Our only major complaint is the bathroom stall doors - they're awkward to latch and unlatch.
