Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
4.0 of 5 bubbles
As much comfort as needed for this affordable price.
Big spacious rooms for 2 adults + 2 teenagers. Comfortable beds.

Doors in the hallway could have a stopper to not make so much noise when it closes.

Elevator takes a long time to use... but we stayed during Easter weekend so it was quite busy.

Very family friendly; especially young children.

Perfect breakfast items with a good variety for everyone

I stayed here for a stag-do and I was really impressed with whole place. A five minute walk from a large train station and a twenty minute walk from the Reeperbahn; it's ideally situated for a night on the town. The hostel itself was clean, tidy and offered everything you'd expect from a far more expensive hostel. They provide shower gel and you can rent a towel for the duration of your stay. The breakfast they offered was pretty extensive, with something to please most people. There was a bar which was ideal for gathering at before going on a night out, however, the hostel seems to be a family friendly place, so making a lot of noise late at night is frowned upon. The staff were friendly and polite, and willing to give advice on the best parts of the city. I would highly recommend this hostel for a short stay in Hamburg.

Really clean and modern hostel; perfect for a group of friends or a family. Location is really handy; about a five minute walk from a large train station with a direct link to the airport and most of the city. There's also a large supermarket about two minutes away, and a shared kitchen for guests to use. Staff were really helpful, able to print boarding passes etc.

We stayed at the hotel at the end of July 2022. We had a room on the 6th floor so we had a very nice view over the city. Our family room was a bit 'hostel-style' but spacious as we were only four people and the room could accommodate eight persons. It was clean and toilet and bathroom were separated, which is always convenient. The hotel was quiet and no street noise was audible in our room. Friendly staff.
Ideas for improvements: it was hot during our stay so airco would have been great. Also, the curtains were not darkening the room at all, so we woke up early. Metro station Altona is close-by (and there's a great supermarket on the way from the hotel to the station) but a bit run-down and dirty.

As a hotel, it is VFM. I was there for 4 nights and my stay was nice. I liked the room decoration, as it was something out of the ordinary. The room was clean, and the breakfast, even though it didn't offer cooked food, it had a lot of variety and worth its money. In addition, it has a public kitchen, where you can cook your own food.

The hotel staff was very kind and fun to hang out with. Also, very helpful regarding the places to visit and the the public transportation options.

The hotel is located near the railway station of Altona, which is great as you have easy access to public transportation.

All in all, I enjoyed my stay there and, if I visit Hamburg again, I would like to stay there again.

The rooms are decent, the service overall ok. I’m leaving a 1 because I had to deal with Samantha, Chiara miserable attitudes. Pleas educate these two or hire competent people, they behave with customers in very incorrect ways. Two other people I met during my stay also complained about them.

We absolutely love staying at Meininger. It’s a great budget friendly way to explore Europe, while also feeling we are staying in a safe place with our small children. Really loved this Meininger. The set up was great and our room was actually bigger than what our normal rooms are when we stay at other Meininger. The staff was friendly and helpful when we were trying to find parking. We upgraded to breakfast and it was fantastic. Would stay here again!

We stayed here for my friends hen weekend - it was the perfect as it had the comfort and amenities of a hotel but with the relaxed atmosphere, fun design and approachable feel of a hostel.
We stayed in a room for 6, the beds were so comfortable, it was great as we were able to get ready for our nights out together. It is just a short train ride and then 10 minute taxi back from the Reeperbahn. In the day it was quick train into the city centre.
The team were also lovely, in particular Louay as he went out of his way to help us prank our 'Bride to Be' with the surprise arrival of another friend!!
Overall I would say this hotel is perfect for any occasion, it was lovely to see families cooking in the guest kitchen and then later groups of friends socialising and playing pool. Our group all agreed we would 100% recommend it!

There really is a Meininger spirit it seems. Have been to a Meininger Hotel in Amsterdam and found the same level of quality and fun spirit in the one in Hamburg.

I like that it is a very inclusive environment, crowd- and generation-wise. The large and colourful room suited perfectly our family, and the common areas were filled with activities for all ages. Private parking was a must for us as we were in transit with all our luggage.

We stayed here for four days. The hotel is so good for the price and its in a very good area. There also is a bar included in the hotel and you can easily go to the train station. The breakfast is basic but good and there are a lot of services for people with gluten intolerance and stuff.

The people on reception were not exactly helpful at times while I stayed there. However I’m sure they could manage this easy task. Otherwise I think there’ll be places at the airport to do it easy enough.

You do get a few towels, maybe just 1 per person tho. Not sure about an ironing room. I think there was either an iron in the room, or you could rent one from reception. Sorry for the slightly vague answers!
