4/10 Fair

Overall the main positive point of this place is the location, which is super close to the Hamburg main train station. The whole stay was ruined by the absolute chaos that went on each evening for 3-nights in a row, with teenagers and drunks running through the hallways, shouting, screaming, smashing doors for hours. Basically the Staff, are nice people but have no control or authority, so it was just a madhouse.

The hostel itself is fine. It is close to the train station which makes getting around the city easier. However, the surrounding neighborhood is full of homeless people. As a female solo traveler, I didn’t feel safe

8/10 Very good

Central and confortable beds
Just in front of Main Station oh Hamburg. Can be a bit noisy at the night. But good value for money and comfortable beds and liners.

Ok men med förbättringspotential
Enkelt, men rent och funktionellt. Inga vanliga underlakan dock, vi fick sova direkt på madrassvaret? Hade checkat in förväg online, men fick ändå stå i kö med alla andra vid incheckningen. Det finns bagageskåp, men de tog slut, och de verkade enbart ta emot mynt, trots att det fanns kortläsare.
