Liked: I'm staying in a 6-bed room, each person have a locker (P.S. bring your own locker) What I like the most is each bed has a power socket and light, even the upper bed on a bunk bed. Hostel is located super close to the central station and has lots of facilities.

Disliked: Problem is mainly the washroom and shower room. The washroom and shower room is super small. Water pressure is low. Water heater is not consistent. Other that these, everything else is excellent.

Liked: The hostel was very well designed. There was a pool where you could play for free and tons of things to entertain you.

Disliked: The fact that you can't eat or drink anything you bought outside inside the hostel, they even control your bags before you get in! Plus, it lacked authenticity in my opinion, but that's just my personal preference.

Liked: The location by the train station is both good and bad. Very convenient, as you walk out of the station (train or bus) and you're right there. The same with leaving. The hostel is all modern and very comfortable.

Disliked: I didn't like the area. I might be overreacting, but it didn't seem particularly safe, and the guard at the door was something I've never seen at a hostel before. The staff was okay, they seemed rather inconvenienced when I needed anything.

Liked: The common areas are beautiful, it has an excellent location quite close to the main train/subway station. The people at the bar are really nice and the rooms have USB chargers.

Disliked: The private bathroom was seriously so small I wondered how men could actually fit in the shower. If you suffer from claustrophobia seriously don't book in here. There was a one public shower outside the room (that I discovered by accident) because nobody from the hostel told us about it. It was always empty so I guess nobody else knew about it. Some of the people at the front desk were not really friendly, but the guys at the bar made up for it. Some of the lockers were not working (4 out of 6 in our room), so luckily me and my brother arrived early to fetch the two that did work.

Liked: Fantastic location, right next to Hauptbahnhof station and opposite the Hamburg ZOB bus station. Good wifi connection, clean rooms and bathrooms!

Disliked: No kitchen, not even a microwave or place to make a cup of tea or coffee. Very strict on bringing food in, even checking shopping bags at the door...got questioned about a small salad i had bought when i was out.

Liked: Really secure with a guard at the door, staff were really friendly and the rooms were pretty nice.

Disliked: I really didn't like the ensuite shower/toilet because they were not rooms but like small plastic things added to the room and they were so small it was impossible to move about in there. Also the area isn't particularly nice however it is super close to the station.

Liked: It is clean, safe, in a great location: the location, cleanliness and safety (security guy at the door at night, because right next to the central station) could not have been better.

Disliked: There were only a few people lounging about the relaxation areas and I noticed that there were mostly older people and schoolclasses i.e. non backpacking travellers. The worst thing about this place is the check out time, you have to be gone by 10:00 am which is way too early if you spend the night at the reeperbahn.

Liked: Great location - super close to the main station, so it was very easy to get everywhere. Although it was convenient, the location wasn't exactly "scenic." Quite an industrial location, but close to many things.

Disliked: There were sketchy people constantly walking around outside... many of them and at all times of the day. Not once did I comfortable walking around outside of the hostel. The staff were not very friendly or helpful. There was someone sleeping in one of our beds in our room when we got there, and the staff had a hard time understanding the situation.
