“Big Youth Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Spent a long weekend here and it was just like being in a big, luxurious Youth Hostel. It was great for the large group we were in and very modern. We especially enjoyed the bench form of breakfast tables where just like a boarding school every one just shifted a bit to let the next person in. We will certainly stay here again the next time we are in Hamburg because the location is just minutes away from Altona train and S-Bahn station.

Room Tip: Ask for the Hamburg Card at reception

I stayed here for one night on a Friday. Pretty expensive but it might just be because I booked at the last minute. The hostel bar was sub-par, it was a Friday night and it was dead, not one person inside. Room was clean, decent facilities, free laundry was also a bonus. Not a fantastic city location but you can easily get to reeperbahn etc by the metro service.

Excellent hotel considering its hostel-like prices. A 15 minute stroll to Reeperbahn, 30 to city center. Or take use the metro, station is nearby. 24h reception, free wifi, clean and friendly. Late check out possible at a modest fee. Garage available. Easy to locate by car.

The hostel is not the cheapest one but you get what you pay for. I stayed at a six-bed dorm room with restroom and shower ensuite which is a nice thing to have. It was quite hot in the room though, especially since I got a bed in a "semi-chamber" with a door and a kind of window.
The breakfast is all right for 5,90 €; some fresh fruit would be nice an d a little variety over the days not the exact same stuff every day.
The staff is nice and helpful. The elevator is awfully slow but up to six flights of stair you wouldn't want to take with luggage.
Overall it was a nice stay.

The Meininger Hotel Hamburg is situated in the district of Altona, which is not downtown Hamburg, but very close to it. Public transportation is easy to reach, the Altona central train/bus/metro and S-Bahn station is within a 5 minute walk of the hotel. The Meininger itself is located in a bit more quiet street with residential appartment buildings. All of the attractions can be reached by public transportation within 10 to 20 minutes, depending on where you wish to go. The Elbe River and downtown Hamburg are within a 25-30 minute walk from the hotel. Also, Hamburg Intl. Airport can be reached directly from the Altona train station within a 30 minute S-Bahn (fast city train) ride on the S1.

The hotel staff is very knowledgeable and polite, ready to help at a moment's notice. WiFi tickets for a length of 5 days were included in our room price. We stayed for 3 nights. There is also the option of using two desktop computers and a printer in cubicles set up in the spacious lobby.

The hotel has rooms for singles/ couples and also dorm rooms, which sleep multiple guests. We traveled as a couple, stayed in a Standard Double Room and were very much satisfied with the size and comfort of the room. It is basic but clean and quite roomy. Our room included a double bed and large leather couch, which could fit 4 persons sitting. The bathroom/ shower was also spacious and clean.

Breakfast is served in the dining hall for 5 Euro per meal, all you can eat and drink. The buffet had a good assortment of foods (continental breakfast). No eggs, bacon or pancakes though, if you are wondering. That was not a problem for us. The bread, rolls and cake, as well as the fruit and vegetables were fresh and tasted very good.

The hotel has a bar, that is open until the late hours of the night, also a nice place to hang out after a long day in the city. There are always plenty of friendly people to meet there or on the outside terrace in front of the hotel. Ice cream and other cooled refreshments can be bought in the lobby.
All together the Meininger Hotel in Hamburg offers a great variety in lodging from dorm rooms to good quality and fair priced single or double rooms. The location is very good and qute central, even though the hotel is not downtown, which is a big plus for us. We were satisfied and would recommend it to anyone staying in Hamburg.

This is one of the best hostel chains. The rooms are great and almost always very clean. There are not many luxury, but it is enough for who wants to travel in a budget. Really worth! Hamburg is a very nice city and you shouldn't miss the fishmarket.

Stayed here in 6 bed dorm on stag do for 2 nights.

The place is well located, quiet area but only ten mins in taxi to the nightlife.

Rooms so so warm no air con, good showers however. Beds quite comfy, bunks.

Food quite good and drinks fair price. Yes the lifts take forever...

For the money and a group of lads yes, for a couple I would get a basic chain level standard hotel and pay an extra 5-10 euro.
