Top 5 Hostels in Hamburg

1. Generator Hostel at Steintorplatz

The Generator Hostel – it is a luxury hostel chain across Europe – is located at the Steintorplatz and only 0, 2 km away from the central station. Wireless LAN is not only available in the communal area but also in the rooms.

There is a large breakfast buffet in the mornings so you can fuel for a day out in Germany’s biggest seaport.

5. Superbude Hotel Hostel St. Pauli

This is one of the more extraordinary, simply “different”, hostels and fits the St. Pauli charm perfectly. It is a laid back, friendly and comfortable place welcoming everyone. Apart from that, the Superbude offers tasty breakfast with fresh waffles until noon. The underground station Sternschanze is about 0, 5 km away and thus within walking distance. The Kitchenclub is open until late and therefore you have the chance to grab a little midnight snack.   This hostel is for those who fancy the diverse Hamburg bar and club scene ideally right in front of the door.
