It was cheap, the rooms were clean, it wasn't too noisy and the staff were great with our 23 man rugby crowd. There are bars downstairs and food served till late. Next doors there's a place that does great kebabs and pizzas. Plenty of food places nearby at the station. Only downside, there's almost nowhere nearby to go for a... More

All in all I had absolutely no problem with this hostel. Me and three mates went to watch hamburg play Hanover and wanted the cheapest accommodation so this fitted the criteria perfectly! The rooms are basic but clean. Comfy beds decent sized room and nice bathroom. It is centrally located and easy to find. All in all enjoyed my stay... More

I really enjoyed staying at this Hostel for 6 days. The weather was raining 5 out of 6 days. I am a student studying Tourism and Hospitality and having lots of knowledge about how to run aspects of hotels and hostels, I will give some comments about the appearance and cleanliness. From the entrance there is a nice lobby with... More

I had to overnight in Hamburg and leave 6am next day. My first disappointment was that it's named Haupbahnhof but it's, in fact, 15 minutes walking from the main station in a dark highway. Service was very good. Shower was broken an most of the lockers were too. I could not sleep because of the noise of the highway. You... More

The hostel was relatively cheap. The room we got was clean, the bathroom had all necessary cosmetics that an average user may need. The staff was during 3 days very impolite, tired and annoyed (not only during night shifts, but daily as well). Maybe they should be paid more to at least smile once per few days, god knows.

I went on a school trip for 6 night in this hotel, The hotel has an hostel as well, it was a brilliant experience of a life time. The room was superb, staff were great despite the fact that the communication was a bit difficult but they were excellent. The food is second to none although, they were mostly flour... More

Housing was in short supply and/or very expensive when we searched for an overnight accommodation near our cruise ship boarding. A&O is a hoste/hotel. We had a "hotel" room which had a bunk bed and a single bed. My husband and I had our grandson traveling with us. For one night the room was adequate and the price was more... More

Had to stay overnight in Hamburg unexpectedly, and chose this hostel because I really only needed a place to crash and it was the cheapest option. 29 EUR in a 6 bed dorm. Location is good, walking distance from the main train station, the U1 stop "Steinstrasse" is even closer. It's amazing that not much street noise can be heard,... More

Booked an overnight stay here - and by overnight, I meant arriving about 21:30 and leaving about 07:00! Although I'd booked a private room, I had never stayed in a youth hostel type place before, so I was a little apprehensive as to what to expect. Decor-wise, the whole place was ever-so-slightly shabby, but nothing serious. The check-in was quick... More

It is not exactly that close to Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station) as its name suggests, though it is still within 15 minutes' walk. To get here from the Main Train Station, you have to cross under some rail tracks. There are not much else around this hostel. The other hostel, Generator, is much closer to the Main Train Station...
