Liked: It was very clean and new, more than I expacted, easily found very close to the Main Station. Very safe system, good service for food, entertainment and luggage store after chceck-out - so that I could leave luggage there for several hours before my train was leaving. in the room there was possible to hire a lock for wardrobe to keep your personal valuable things in safe. each bed has its own electricity, USB charger, mini light.

Disliked: funny was small place for head, when you are lying on the bed and you want to sit down, be careful on your head as the ceiling of the bed above you is not in height enough :)

Liked: very easy to find, nearest hostel to the Hamburg Hbf/Zob. Even there're lots of visitors, the hostel keeps clean and the staff always smiles and were patient.

Disliked: If smoking and non-smoking rooms are separate but eauql thay would be perfect! Besides, when booking just a bed, it's better to offer female room and male room.

Liked: It's just like every generator hostel, really clean, safe feeling and a pretty friendly staff.

Disliked: The generator is always a safe choice, they try really really hard to make it feel like a classic backpacker hostel but it won't ever feel right. It's always more like a hotel, which I guess isn't necessarily a bad thing but you could definitely be getting more out of the city than at a generator hostel. Yeah they will sell you things you need but everything is overpriced and everything just feels impersonal, generator is always a good last minute choice though because it's very safe all around and pretty cheap.

Liked: Generators are always good - clean, hot shower, love the light/powerpoint/usb ports at each bed.

Disliked: Only thing would be the line to talk to anyone at reception at any time. They're always really long (it's a big hostel with a lot of guests). Also, can be a little hard to meet people if you're travelling solo - the bar and common areas can be a little intimidating!

Liked: The bedroom was pretty clean, and the beds are really confortable. The bathroom was also very clean! The commun room is really nice, quite easy to meet to new people. The music and ambiance are good! It's just beside the train station and bus station, which is fantastic!!

Disliked: There's not enough bathroom on the floor in case the one in the bedroom is occupied. The staff was not really cheerful, none of them was friendly - except the guy at the bar.

Liked: Great common areas to hang out. Very clean everywhere. Security from the afternoon into the evening at the door. Very convienent location next to the main train station. Well priced snacks and beer. With the windows open it got a bit loud at night as we were right above the outside area off the bar, but closing the windows made it silent.
