The hostel is in a good location, using the underground you are very flexible in Hamburg city. The hostel is really big, so I thought it kind of misses the typical hostel athmosphere and ist more like a hotel type. Still had a good time and got to meet nice people. Would recommend it

This hostel is huge. Myself and friends stayed for my Stag Do. Location and accommodation were a surprise. This hostel is about a 10 minute walk from the central station. So all the previous comments of being far away are a bit unfair, yes its not on the doorstep but it isn't that far away at all. The staff on... More

Was put here by mistakes. Location is far from Central Station. Actually closer to Beliner Tor station than Hauptbahnhof (Central). Breakfast was so-so. If you have to stay here, make sure: 1. Memorize your room location and the exit route, it's rather confusing. 2. No need to take breakfast, buy something to eat and drink from nearby petrol station. 3.... More

16 of us stayed here for a weekend for a mates stag doo. We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the place. It was clean, the rooms were a decent size and the shower and separate toilet room were modern and well fitted. The hotel had a good sized communal area with pool tables and a bar that also... More

I wasn't expecting The Ritz upon reading the reviews for this hostel, but I think the place is given a disservice with some of the comments on here. The line to check in was quite long, but as it was a Friday evening I could understand it. The rooms were a good size and clean, with private bathroom facilities. Free... More

Stayed here last weekend with a group. Found the Hostel to be great very clean and facilities are good. However Wifi is very touch and go and in this day and age its a bit annoying when in a foreign country. Could not complain about anything else though price is the best part. Location is good however be aware if... More

Location: good in terms of connections (25 mins or so direct link to airport; 2 or 3 mins direct link to central train station) but the immediate neighbourhood is not nice. Noise: *extremely* loud on the Sat night due to hundreds of teenagers hanging out opposite until 5 am or so! Cleanliness & service: no issue Amenities: the table football,... More

Contrary to some peoples expectations, this is not a funky backpacker hostel and also not a hotel. It is a quiet family/youth hostel. We stayed in a double private ensuite and while it was basic it was clean and a good size. When you compare to the average cost of a hotel room in Hamburg it is excellent value. It... More
