Liked: Cheap. Kind staff. For a night stay before going to the airport it is alright.

Disliked: Very crowded in the room and unfortunately the place looks very messy as there are renovations going on around the toilet area. The room is quite hot but luckily there is a small fan.

Liked: The staff was unbelievably helpful and friendly. The owner himself runs the front desk sometimes and is very open and approachable with questions about the city. You cannot beat the price and it is a 10 min walk to a train station and a 5 min walk to a major bus stop. Great stay in a great city!

Disliked: Not much!

Liked: Staff were really helpful and friendly, we had no problem approaching them with any questions and they helped us with everything. We really enjoyed our stay here and would happily go back to stay here.

Disliked: To get in you have to either use a bus or an S-Bahn which is fine but getting back from a night out is expensive (if that's what you want to do). Also, the rooms could be quite crowded.

Liked: Really chilled-out hostel, great value for travellers and small groups on a budget. Fittings and facilities very basic, ( although there are hairdryers and soap in bathrooms, and a TV in reception) kitchen facilities with cooker and fridge/ freezer. Apart from small but comfy bunk rooms there is space to eat and v. limited space to sit in reception area. A cute, well-behaved hostel dog. S bahn 15 mins walk. very friendly and helpful owners - supermarket and takeaway food very close.

Disliked: nothing to dislike if you have a sense of humour and are realistic about what to expect for the price.

Liked: the owner was really helpful and friendly, recommended loads of great places for eating and also sightseeing. The bedroom was clean.

Disliked: It was really far away from the centre of hamburg, and the facilities in the room were poor... the room itself was absolutely tiny, nowhere near big enough for 4 people, and if you wanted to use the showers/toilets they were quite far away from the bedroom on another floor, inconvenient. Also there was only one plug socket in the room, and there was no mirror in the room either

Liked: Great friendly staff, really knew what they were talking about and great if you need directions or suggestions Supermarkets close by that are open until 8 and 10pm. kitchen had stove oven and all the necessary kitchen stuffs Showers only "leaked" when the curtain wasn't kept in the stall. Be sure to keep the curtain inside the ledge! Someone always at reception 24/7 to open the door for you Only a 15 min walk to the nearest train station

Disliked: Kitchen and guys bathroom sinks didn't have hot water. (Guys showers and sinks do- they are in a different room) Some people didn't wash their dishes (pls do your own freakin dishes people!!)

Liked: Extremely nice and helpful stuff. The room was small, but clean. Good atmosphere.

Disliked: Some of the rooms are located in the basement, so I'm not sure, if it would be warm enough there in winter, but for late summer/autumn it was ok. The hostel is also pretty far away from S-Bahn, so you would have to take a bus what I don't find very convenient as the bus net is not on the widely available city maps.

Liked: The staff went above and beyond to make sure that I had everything that I needed and even some things that I didn't know that I needed. They were always offering advice and opinions on things. There were several times where I thought I had a good plan and they pointed me in an even better direction. Great staff!

Disliked: The only real downside about the hostel is it's location. It is a bit further out of the city, but this isn't a real problem if you don't mind taking the metro. It is just a few stops from the city center then and I had no problem making the most of my trip to Hamburg even though the hostel was outside of the city.

10 July 2013 Cheryl would recommend this property

Liked: All of the staff there are wonderful and friendly. We weren't too sure what to do in Hamburg once we got there and we were given tons of advice and suggestions. We were given maps, directions and help with transit schedules. The beds were clean and comfortable and the hostel was in a quiet district.

Disliked: My only complaint would be that the shower rooms need a little bit of work. The showers were good, but they leaked into the hallways and the staff would have to use a shop vac to clean up. Sometimes very late at night. Otherwise, one of the best hostels we've been to.
