I‘m absolutely satisfied with this hostel. The team from the reception was super friendly and politely. The security was very good and the beds are comfortable, I could have slept. The bathing rooms in the rooms are very small and tiny.

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.
