Very nice place to stay in Hamburg. We enjoyed a great time there with my family. Customer service by them is too satisfied.

Stayed at this hostel for a few nights and found a great base for exploring the city. It isn't the most central location, but the centre of town is easily reached by either S-Bahn or U-Bahn (both less than 10 minutes walk) or bus then U-Bahn (change at Osterstrasse) from Kieler Strasse in front of the hostel.

Our room and the toilets were spotless and the location was quiet, being set back from the busy street. The standard of accommodation and atmosphere is more small value hotel rather than hostel, being popular with German families as well as travellers. The double room with shower and sink (toilet on the same floor) was ideal and well priced. Definitely recommended, especially if you don't mind using the public transport to get to central Hamburg.

We stayed 3 nights and were the only ones in the hotel basically. Had a lovely quiet room and hired a laptop for 24 hours for 10 euros. The staff were lovely, super helpful provided us with maps etc and let us leave our backpacks in the reception for an afternoon.
The rooms were very clean and the cleaners were around all day. The breakfast was nice with a good selection!
Located 10 minutes drive from the main station, we paid for a taxi as we arrived late at night (16 euros) and he had no issue finding the hotel. The television had English channels, nice to unwind after weeks on end of backpacking.
Great hotel, would go back!

We stayed at the Arcade Hostel in late February before moving into our own apartment in Hamburg. We choose the hostel because it is not far away from the Autobahn exit and therefore easy to find. But don't be mistaken, it doesn't mean you can hear the cars, not at all. The hostel is located in the 2nd row with an own, free parking lot located behind it. Buses into the city are conveniently leaving about 100m away and need approx. 30min. The room was nice and clean, all furnished by IKEA which creates a nice warm feeling while not increasing the cost. We payed 39 Euros for a double room with the toilet on the floor but shower and sink inside the room. We booked directly through the hostels website which was cheaper than booking it via another website. The hostel also offers snacks, drinks and breakfast for an additional 6 Euros. We didn't use it, but it looked quite alright for that kind of money.
If you come to Hamburg and don't mind taking the bus to the city center or want to go to Hagenbecks Tierpark or a game of the HSV, I can only recommend staying at Arcade Hostel.

this hostel was more like a hotel - rooms were very comfortable, with tv and bathroom, and also very clean. the staff were welcoming and friendly.
we were only in hamburg for two days, and during winter, so upon reflection would have booked somewhere closer to the city centre. it was difficult to get a real impression of the city in such a short time whilst staying in a location which was out of the way.
for a longer stay, or for people who are familiar with the city, i would definitely recommend this hostel.

Ja! All I can say is, that I never saw such a great hostel anywhere. We just spend one night there. But it was great. And the breakfast is the most tasty breakfast I ever had away from home! ;)
