I stayed for 7 nights in Hamburg's Arena Hostel. It's clean and quiet, with excellent staff. The Hostel is located 15 mins by S-Bahn from Hamburg city centre. This makes it ideal for anyone wanting to avoid the noise of the central hostels and for families who may be wary of some of the 'characters' in the central area.
Conversely, the more-isolated location may put off hardened party people. However, the hostel is on the doorstep of a S-Bahn station and the trains run through the night at weekends (until midnight Sun-Thurs).
During the week, most of the residents are workers, rather than tourists. This keeps the place very safe and quiet. However, as people are working, they go to bed and get up early. Therefore, night-time noise is not permissible after 10 PM and light sleepers are likely to be woken early by people preparing for work.
Below the hostel, there's an excellent bakery/ general store. However, this is only open 5AM to 1PM weekdays. At other times, there are no sops in the immediate area.
The staff are excellent, as are the bathrooms and kitchen.
