Very good value for money. The rooms are small but very clean and easy. We had own shower but shared toilet which was fine and clean. Breakfast is good value for money and good quality. The location is not central but an easy bus ride. About 25 minutes to town hall. Very quite and peaceful. Had a great night's sleep.

We had some trouble finding this hotel as the bus from the airport could not stop at the correct stop due to roadworks. Once found though, it was not difficult to get around. Bus 4 to the centre goes from just outside the hotel and takes just over half an hour. Bus 22, just around the corner, goes one stop... More

This place is all the way in the boonies. 30 minutes by suburban transit (10 min to walk to it). Other than that - this place is really excellent. Great knowledgeable staff. Clean rooms with good shower and sink. Shared toilette is really clean and well maintained. Wifi is good. If you are looking for a relaxing place, not so... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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! ;)
