Our fresh, brand new Hamburg Hostel opened in January 2012 and is located in the heart of St Georg, next to the central train station "Hauptbahnhof Sued". Many of Hamburg’s great attractions are on our doorstep, such as the Deichtorhallen, the City Hall and the area of Speicherstadt. We know that Hamburg can be expensive, so unlike many other Hamburg hostels we give you: FREE Wi-Fi Internet, FREE bed linen, central location and en-suite Rooms.All our other Generator Hostels are renowned for their famous late nights at Generator Bar which provide a unique atmosphere, entertaining our guests with DJ nights, Karaoke, quizzes and fancy dress evenings: expect this and many many more fun evenings.

Great place to stay with friends. Ideal location near central station. Public transport easy to get from here all over the city. Not a tradition hostel more of a budget hotel but suited our requirements.

For me as an Interrail traveller, the hostel was perfectly located directly at the mainstation. The hostel is pretty big, but the staff was professional and the rooms functional and clean. I liked the bed, which included light and electricity and gave me some privacy.
