It was nice and chip for what is promised. Might be better if they will fix the internet and condition of public showers. I stayed 3 nights and it was not secure to keep my belongings in the rooms. But the reception guy helped me store it in private locker.

Depite being located at the Central station (with connection to anywhere in Hamburg/Germany) the rooms and hallways were nice and quiet. Friendly staff, nice bar, easy acces. Small ensuite bathrooms, but overall a really nice place! Would stay there again

Much too expensive for what you get. All a bit worn down. Room small if you would be with 4 strangers in it. Only 2 little seats. Bathroom very small with toilet inside it too. Shower bad and if you try to showe everything is wet. Employees not very friendly (some don’t even look at you). Breakfast very simple and room too small for so many people. Neighbourhood bit scary with many beggars. It was nice that it was close to the train/tram station. Would not like to walk there on my own at night though.

Hostel itself is pretty average (not bad though), and location is not far from all the good things to see, but it’s a shocking neighbourhood, right outside the hostel door it smells like urine and plenty of people hanging around begging for money and drinking/smoking. Is very close to main train station, was only a 2 min walk from the hostel to my train platform which was great for my early train.

I had a good experience at Generator Hostels. Location is excellent, right in front of Central Station. Bathroom at private rooms could be bigger, specially the shower. Staff was generrally king and took care of our requests.

I had a private room, ok but very small, hard to get in the bathroom as the bed block the door. Very very noisy, the room is not isolated, you can hear people ine the corridor, and the door closing system make the wall shake. The windows are weak too, you can hear the very noisy streets below.

Passing thru Hamburg to take a morning train to Denmark. Everything worked perfectly. This is the second time I stay at this hotel. I will stay here next time as well. It’s perfect location just next to Hauptbahn is the reason I recommend this hotel.

I liked it's design and the staff was always helpful. Good experience overall. This place looked neat and most importantly - it was close to the metro. And you could rent a bike for good price. Wish they had a bigger bathroom and a showe though.
