I don't know where to start, there are so many good things to say about this hostel!

Arriving
It was so simple to find, I took the S1-Bahn train direct from the airport to Landunsbrucken station - of which the hostel is situated on top of. You have to take the side door on the left of the station to find the stone stairs and climb to the top. There are a fair few stairs but there are viewpoints (read resting points haha) on the way up which give amazing views over the harbour.

Dorm Rooms
The rooms are cleaned daily & mine was spotless throughout my stay. Each bed in the bunk has its own shelf, light & plug. Plus if you are on the top bunk you have the added bonus of being able to use the top of the wadrobes (of which you have a lockable one each) as a second shelf. The view of the harbour too made this one of the best hostel rooms I've stayed in.

Bathrooms
I always dread what state the bathrooms may be in when I stay somewhere but I was very pleasantly surprised at the individual lockable bathrooms on offer. Very clean, each containing a shower cubicle, toilet, sink, mirror and large windowsill to put your toiletries on!

Breakfast
The morning spread was fantastic! Cold meats, cheeses, salads, breads, toast, cereals, fruit, jams, spreads, hot drinks, fruit juice, water. Everything you need to set you up for a long days travel you get served buffet style in the amazing dining area which boosts floor to ceiling windows giving you the best views of the bustling harbour. It's not your average hostel!

Location
To save money I like to be able to walk & take public transport where possible the hostels location was perfect for that! Only about 20minutes walk from the Reeperbahn, 10 minutes from a local monument and even less down to the harbour where I could catch a boat tour, bus tour, visit the local fishermans restaurants and even walk under the River Elbe!

New Year Celebrations
As a solo traveller I absolutely loved the atmosphere on New Years eve, the staff were so friendly and welcoming, the hostel was full of a variety of guests i.e. families, solo travellers, older couples - it was great! The view of all the fireworks going off over the harbour was second to none. I was completely spoilt & can't recommend enough that you go for New Year! It is the perfect place! I'm not sure I will ever top New Year 2018!

This location is amazing - a little walk up from the station - but it is gorgeous!!! It is located at the harbor so there is lots to see and do. great restaurants across the road.
The rooms are nice and clean. Well laid out.
You get a lot of family crowd here so it isn't always too quiet.
The staff is really sweet.
Great breakfast.

Located on top of a hill, with amazing views overlooking the port and town. Easy to reach by public transport, just a short walk from nearest station. It's very clean and tidy, even dorms and common areas.

Staff was very friendly and helped me with planing my stay in Hamburg. Breakfast was very good as well, and the view from the rooms is amazing! Location is perfect! Would stay here again!

In the night it was a bit noisy, there where some schoolkids staying at the hostel as well. They where drunk or so and screamed around. Pack some earplugs ;-)

This may only be a Hostelling International Youth Hostel but it's got to be one of the BEST places to stay in Hamburg, The location, overlooking the Elbe and the Port, is stunning, unforgettable, amazing. I really can't praise this place highly enough.

This was my third stay in a little over two years. As on previous occasions, I was hugely impressed by the friendliness of the welcome, by the quality of the service and by the overall atmosphere of the place. It's very popular with families and groups, so book well ahead to avoid disappointment.

Who needs five star luxury when you can stay at the Auf dem Stintfang ???!!!
