This is by far the worst hostel I have ever been to (and I have been to a lot of hostels). The worst is: you dont feel safe in this hostel. There is no lock on the door from the room where we slept and very weird people (I believe some of those people didnt even stay in the hostel)... More

Bed sheets were not clean, there was only one toilet available in the floor, the kitchen floor was sticky the whole time with beer rest (that were not cleaned for two days). 15 min walking to Reeperbahn. I strongly recommend to avoid this hostel.

The 10eur deposit is a scam pure and simple.... there is no one to check you out when you leave! The rooms are overcrowded with beds with hardly any floor space to move about. There is one bathroom per gender for the whole hostel and of the 2 showers available only one was working properly. The whole place needs a... More

So, we woke up on our first night with bedbugs literally crawling all over us. We banged on the staff door but no one came to help us move rooms, so we just went ahead and did that ourselves. The next morning the manager moved us to a different room but HE DID NOT CHANGE THE MATTRESSES IN THE ROOM... More

There is no one at the recepeption to check you in or out, forget about the 10€ deposit for keys you have left, you will never get it back since there is no one there! The hostel is in an office building and the shower is at its basement! Don't go there unless yoy realy have to

I was there 1 night, with some friends, and I have to say that it was way better than expected. The receptionist, is a Spanish guy called Manolo, and I have to say that he made my stay perfect. He solved all the problems we had, he recommended us things about the city and he never hesitate in helping us.... More

This place is definitely one on my avoid list. The customer service was horrible since the day I make the booking - but I tried to give them the benefit of doubt. It just got worse in person. The place isn't clean and the bed and pillow was horrible. The location is close to subway station but that is not... More

We stayed two nights at Wira Hostel. The room we've booked wasn't available, so we had to take another room without any explanation or excuse. We couldn't pay by credit card because the machine was broken. The sheets we got were dirty. So the toilet and showers (which was broken as well). For the first night we didn't even get... More

The location is fairly good being opposite the sbahn station and a short walk from the reperbaun. The cleanliness of the room leaves a lot to be desired and there are some questionable stains on the beds and walls. This didn't really bother me as we were on a lads weekend and would be getting drunk a lot and not... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a quiet, tidy and comfortable hostel that is only a few steps from Elbe river, fish market, harbor and the famous entertainment districts of St. Pauli and Altona. The hostel is a few steps away from the famous entertainment district St. Pauli and Altona. There you can find many clubs, pubs and beer gardens. The famous fish market, only on Sunday morning from 05:00 to 10:00, is also near and the best place to experience the most lively place of Hamburg on Sunday morning. In the market you can see music bands perform live. ... more   less
