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

A friend and I stayed here for one night before our flight home in October. We stayed in the "hotel" section. The room was decently clean (some stuffs on the walls) and the bathroom was a good size. The reception area on the first floor had friendly staff, arcade games, a bar that served pizza. There were people of all... 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

A&O Hamburg City advertises itself as both a hotel and a hostel. In practice, there is no real separation between the different classes of accommodation (e.g. separate wings or floors). I booked hotel accommodation, paying more than 55 euro per night for a single room. However, I was disturbed by children in hostel-style dormitory rooms on the same corridor shrieking... More

The main lobby with 24hr bar was awesome but the larger rooms themselves with the shared bathroom were severely lacking in privacy. There's a skate park across the street so our roommates were all skaters who came in real late, were loud and slept late. Lots of families and if you spend the money there's probably nice rooms available. Also... More

Had the bad luck to have been there from Saturday until Monday. However after maybe 2 hours sleep on Saturday night,thanks to all the screaming,drunken kiddies outside on the street,moved out on Sunday morning to a civilized hotel. Breakfast crap,check in takes ages. Don't go unless you enjoy young kids who think they invented binge drinking and have matching t-shirts... More

I stayed in an 8-bed mixed dorm. Very reasonable price with good connections to the airport and to the city center. Staff were friendly and helpful. The downstairs lounge was very good, with lots of friendly people. I slept very well on the first floor. Would recommend.

The hostel was clean and comfy, beds in the dorm we stayed were a bit squeaky, but with earplugs I slept like a baby :). There could have been a second toilet in the dorm, but other than that I have nothing to complain about the room. The lockers in the room and the keycard for the room were a... More
