“Good clean stopover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2007

This is one of those basic, clean hotels that has rooms you would find the same in every one of their hotels, no matter wherever it is. Very compact, but functional - almost like a caravan interior but a bit more roomier - not much, mind you. Characterless, but who cares when you're only staying a night or two.

The hotel is in a good location, not far from the city centre. We walked there, so it's possible. We arrived by car and managed to get a room without booking, not really knowing exactly where we were. We got a surprise to find that we were only a couple of streets away from the red light district so, if you've got young kids with you, don't take them in that direction!

The public internet access was ridiculous. It's high up on a wall at eye level in front of everyone - so no privacy - and costly. I gave up because I couldn't reach the keyboard! The staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was fine. I'd recommend this for a no-frills, reasonably-priced stay. No complaints.

The hotel was pricey for the room that we got. The interior of the room was extremely cramped, with a bunk bed squeezed into a room the size of half of your average master bedroom. The toilet and shower were seperated by a flimsy wall, and we at first thought it was a closet. The shower offers barely enough room to move your arms. However, the layout of the hotel is pretty good, and the dining area is well laid out. The free breakfast is average, with danish, cereal, toast, coffee, and juice. The hotel's close to some good dining establishments, and the U-Bahn station isn't too far away. There's a bust station just around the corner.

  • Liked — cleaniness, good service

This was my first time staying at Etap hotel in St. Pauli,hamburg. The location was really easy to find, the service was everything that a budget traveller was after!
The room was really funky and well designed to create as much space as possible, although the bunk bed step ladders were difficult to climb!
The rooms are perfect for couples or a family of three. You can also order carry out food to be delivered to the hotel. Overall, a VERY VERY posh hostel!
