A cheap hotel that have dorm rooms with a private shower. Really nice place right in the center. Close to the Metro station. A lot of bars just 5 minutes walk from there. The workers there were really helpful and explain us about the city and the must seeing sites.

This hotel was perfect for us! Ideal location located five minutes walk from the s-bahn and close enough to the Reeperbahn but far away enough to sleep easily! The staff were always available at the reception and constantly called taxis for us to the Reeperbahn (although the Reeperbahn is only a couple of stops away on s-bahn). Staff were also...

This hostal is great! Clean and spacious rooms, with comfortable beds and good service. Good location next to a supermarket, several stores and a metro station. The lobby has a few vending machines and a snack bar. I recommend it widely.

This hostel exceeded my expectations of a typical hostel. There were people from all nationalities and ages living here. Very friendly counter staff whom spoke good English too. We stayed in a room for 5 adults and there is enough space for everyone. The walls are not really soundproof so noise can be heard every time a door closes or...

If you are a traveller that spends loads of time in the room, then this is a little basic for you, but as an overnight stop-over, then it's a good place to be. A clean and efficient hotel that isn't too far from the City Centre. Good S-Bahn links to and from town, airport and the rest of Hamburg. Friendly...

This is probably the best hotel I stayed in while traveling through Europe for many years now. I don't care for fancy accommodations and I am never in the hotel, only to sleep. However, this place is just amazing! The moment you walk in, it is very clean and staff is most helpful! The room is very spacious and very...
