This hotel is all about the "wow" factor. The design (particularly the entrance and communal parts) will inevitably get heaps of attention from guests, but it's not quite 100%.
For example, the curtains are impossible to close with electric leads running up to the desks, which are shoved up against the oddly sloping walls in front of the windows. Mine had multiple holes in them. The bathrooms are tiny and difficult to use. Even as a slim, fit guy I had issues squeezing into the oddly shaped shower.
Breakfast and staff friendliness rank highly. The location is rough and ultra urban: expect homeless people, graffiti, rubbish and a very unsafe feeling as you make your way the 5-6 minutes from the S-Bahn stop down the dark road to the hotel.
If you want a showy, flashy, urban experience (Hamburg meets downtown USA) this is your place, but I can't help feeling the style doesn't quite match the substance.
