“Avoid in summer if you want to get some sleep”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

Hamburg is a great city. Superbude has potential to be very nice as well.
Too bad we were not as enthousiastic about this hotel as most others. The 3 days when we stayed it was hot in Hamburg: over 20 degress (and one day over 25 celcius) in the daytime.

This means the rooms get smoking hot as there is no airconditioning. OK, there was a very small (and noisy) table fan in the room but this brings no releaf without opening the windows, and there lies the problem: the hotel is situated on a very busy and noisy road making it very hard (not to say impossible) to sleep without earplugs. Unfortunately these are not supplied by the hotel, so make sure to bring your own.

Too bad even our earplugs couldnt handle the "club" next to the hotel. Saturday night pumping bases kept booming till 6 am after which a fight broke out outside and police came to restore order. It would have been very enjoyable to watch if we wouldnt have been so tired from walking in the city the day before.

Apart from the noise, which should be less or no problem when you can just keep the windows closed in winter, we didnt like the double beds. The bed is made up of to single beds put next to eachother. Both beds have a wooden bedframe around them, so the gap is quite wide and hard to lie on. I suggest you bring your foam "love bridge" from home to bridge the gap or romance could hit a low when you are staying.

And while you are packing anyway: bring your pillow. The ones we had in our room should have been replaced at least 2 years ago.

it sounds pretty bad. The rooms were clean, staff nice, location quite OK from the subway. You'll know it from the other reviews and its true. Hoewever, I really cannot give it more then 2 stars as the bed itself is sub-standard.

The good: The staff..it seems they consider the hotel as theirs, and that makes you feel like their personel guest. You feel welcome and they take their time to inform and inspire you about things to do while visiting their city.
The vibe of the place is warm and everyone are welcome. The decor is imaginative and you are so far away from felling like just another boring hotel-chain-decor. My room was big and clean.
Its not dead centre in the city, but it takes 18 minutes to wak all the way to ccentral station, or 5 minutes to the metro station and the 3 minutes ride... but once you are in the metro, you can go anywhere.
The bad: Traffic outside my window very heavy, so for sleep I had to get the windows closed and that makes it hot. Its ok that there is no aircon at this price, but then they should install an cellingfan.
The tv is very small and I could not se anything if my head was on the pillow, and every program is in german, even captain Piccard of the starship Enterprise speaks german.. In these adanced times this sould be optional. This is off course not hotel superbudes fall.
The shower is very very slippery and the soap has a strange smell.
The suggestions:
Put something i the bottom of the shower, to avoid accidents. Throw in CNN and a music-channel on the tv and go to 32 inch-
Install a celling fan that can be controlled from the bed.

Upon arrival everything is in the German informal 'Du' - a bit too forward perhaps?! Close inspection then reveals that chunky black rimmed spectacles, hosepipe jeans and floppy hats seem to comprise the staff uniform. I'm only 28 and I felt out of place straight away... I'm clearly not cool enough.

The room was absolutely tiny, with the exception of the bathroom. They should be embarrassed offering such rooms. Cleanliness was good, however.

Parking turned out to be €5 a night. This was in semi-smallprint on the paperwork and was not mentioned by the desk staff until the time came to cough up. There are also no signs in the car park advertising the charge. Turn right at the lights after the car park and there are plenty of spaces under the bridge and beyond.

We were very disappointed considering the other reviews.

Everything about this hotel was perfect for us. It was easy to get to using public transportation from the airport. Get off at Berliner Tor and turn right, it’s a quick walk to the hotel from the Berliner Tor. It’s also a simple walk into city center from the hotel. The staff was knowledgeable, professional and seemed as happy to work there as we were to stay.

Even the contrived quirkiness of a frat house for adults added to the fun. Yes, the walls were Pepto- Bismol pink but not too many people staying at this hotel seem to be carving out time to meditate on various shades of pink and how they mixed with a purpler pinks. The décor was the basic repurposing of whatever one could find in a hardware store and they were very creative. Kudos. Who would have thought that a toilet plunger could be a rack or that a mousetrap would be a keen way to hang pamphlets? They spent money where it should be spent; on plumbing, comfortable beds and bedding.

If I had one concern for anyone staying here, it would be the height of the beds. They were low to the ground. The beds were comfortable, the linen was fastidiously clean, as was, the rest of the room but the beds in our room were low to the ground it could have been because this was the family room we were given, even though there were only two of us. It would be great for a family with children.

Frühstück was good and plentiful.

For the price and convenience, it’s the best deal in town.

It was based on other tripadvisor reviews that we decided to stay at Superbude during our recent stay in Hamburg. Near the U, groceries and restaurants - Superbude is a destination in itself. Creative atmosphere, friendly staff, vibrant rooms complete with locking cabinets, and a great price. The even have a healthy breakfast buffet each morning (additional cost) as well as a bar, snacks, wifi, laundry...and a cinema. I highly recommend to budget travelers, couples and as well as families. Plus - if you remotely like "funky poodle" - you'll LOVE Superbude!

We are late in posting, we stayed in the Blue room for 2 nights from 26 October 2010 and could not fault it. To compare it to a Premier Inn is unbelievable and I am sure they would feel the same.

When we stayed Mings Heroes performed in the lounge and it was a great evening.

Within walking distance to all the good restaurants and City Centre.

The breakfast was great so what if you are asked to clear your table, it is only a request.

The rooms a spotless and I hope to return again some day.

We stayed for a short 3-day stay in Hamburg and decided to stay in the superbude after some great reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It is already almost a year ago that we stayed but I still wanted to make sure I leave some good feedback here as it is well deserved!

Pluspoints are the good size rooms, good bathrooms and cleanliness throughout, all with a stylish unexpected touch. The rooms are also nice n warm in the freezing last Winter in Hamburg.

Breakfast is a buffet self serve in the shared area just off the entrance lobby. Nice german bread and rolls as well as fresh eggs and coffee, really enjoyed it. The service is good also with great tips given by the very friendly staff at the reception. Amazing value for money also.

Only downside is the location if you are not well heeled, it is a good 10-15mins walk from the main train station. We arrived by rental car and guest parking is available right opposite the hostel.

If you are looking for no-nonsense fun young affordable place to stay in Hamburg, this is it!

Room Tip: Choose one on the upper floors.
