I stayed in the Instant Sleep Backpacker Hostel in March 2012. The hostel was clean, quiet and quite centrally located. My two friends and I stayed in an 8-bed-dormroom which was quite clean and with several lockers you can use free of charge (bring your own lock). I slept next to the windows, and at times there was a bit of a draught. The hostel has no curfew and the reception desk is open 18h a day (8am-2am as far as I remember) with a very friendly, helpfull and englishspeaking staff. Note, though, that the reception (along with the rest of Hamburg) DOES NOT accept creditcards (not even VISA) which means you have to pay for your stay in cash.
The hostel is located app. 20 minutes on foot from St.Pauli and Altestadt and app. 7 minutes from the S- and U-bahn.
