Very well maintained hostel, clean & sober + extra services. The only remark I could write is : OK each room has its own toilet block but it is not easy to wash one's face when a board prevents you to lean over the washbasin (or use the shower water ... ?).

Had to stand in line for 30 mins waiting to be checked in. When I checked in my bed was full of chips, loose tobacco and someone's dirty underwear. Had to wait for another 30 mins to get allocated a new bed. Barely got any sleep.

A bit typical of a couple of the Generators I have stayed in, but as a solo traveller out to meet people I found this hostel lacking in the atmosphere to get people socialising. Unfortunately for me the hostel is undergoing renovations to what looks like the main area for such things. As it was the area to chill out...

There was a lot of noise from the street and the cleanliness was very poor, but I must say that the location was perfect and the instalations were confortable. I recommend it if you want to visit the city for a weekend.

Came for the weekend. The hostel was really modern and clean but the bathrooms in the rooms were really small. We checked in with Patrick, very friendly and very helpful, couldn't have asked for more. Wanted to go out and Christian behind the bar gave us great recommendations and turned out to be a superb night. The main bar was...

This hostel can not be faulted on its location... right opposite the Hauptbahnhof it's impossible to miss. Check in was quick and easy and the rooms and beds were clean. We didnt spend much time in the reception area but when we did, the staff were helpful with directions to get Hamburg SV tickets. The beds were comfy and I...

The staff need to cheer up a bit, as the whole time we were there they weren't happy at all. The main reception and public areas downstairs are clean and well kept, which is carried on to the rooms, with comfy beds and spacious lockers aswell. The area around it is great, close to the main station and good nightlife....

Hello, many thanks for the nice comment. I regret that the other guests were a little bit disturbing, but unfortunately it is hard to control. Soon we will open our new bar. The atmosphere will be even better than, with fantastic live gigs, a cosy atmosphere and a great offer of drinks and food. Come and check it out. You...
