Stayed for just one night but had a good time, hostel was fairly clean, didn't lack any essential services and was ideally located, fairly close to a metro stop. Couldn't ask for more given the very cheap prices! I'd definitely visit again.

I stayed for two nights and it was ok. The room was big, but not the locker. You have space only to put your values, not your entire bag. It wasn't the cleanest, but it was ok. The shower could be better. Not close to city center, but quite close to a S-Bahn station, where you could eat and buy...

I spent 3 nights in a 12 bed room. It was a big room also with small lockers inside (you get a key after a small deposit). They have a kitchen and a big nice common room, where you can eat, drink and meet lots of cool people!

Been there for 3 nights in a 8 bed room. Rooms are noisy, between a bar, a club and the street, so I guess "Instant Sleep" is not the most suitable name. They offer free earplugs tough. Rooms are fairly clean and toilets as well. Free coffee and tee and wifi.Connection decent, close to S+U station and near some streets...

Stayed here for only two nights, wish I could have stayed longer. Located in the heart of Hamburg, minutes walk to great restaurants bars and coffee shops. Rooms and beds are clean. Great staff and atmosphere as well, would recommend this to anyone in Hamburg

Great atmosphere! The rooms are nothing special, but the location is really good right next to one of the most fun streets in Hamburg (not the Reeperbahn but the other one). There is no wifi in the rooms, which means you have to be social and hang out in the common room. I would stay there again!

It is really good located, and has very comfortable rooms. The staff is really nice. There is a common kitchen and a common dining room, as well as free coffee in the morning. However, what's the most amazing about the hostel is the common room! There are musical instruments! A piano, a guitar, a box... Crazy, right? But that's not...

in a 6 room dorm. a bit hot at night but it was bearable. Definitely got a good nights rest here even being in such a happening neighbourhood. Really close to the main street of sternshanze with all the restaurants and bars they had secure bike rooms, toilets and showers were decent and never smelled funky. On top of the...

Instant Sleep is a super fun hostel, the staff are super nice and really helpful, the rooms and facilities are basic but get clean everyday. Instant Sleep is located in a really cool area of Sternschanze (which is pretty much St Pauli) and close to train stations so easy access to everything around Hamburg. Super thanks to Julita for looking...

Cool hostel with nice interior and relaxed vibes. Has a good kitchen and common area. Staff are nice and helpful too. The hostel is also close to some great food areas. However, during our stay we saw at least 4 mice running around in the corridors :(

Instant sleep is an independent hostel in Hamburg with its own and a little unconventional style, located in the quarter 'Sternschanze'. Since 1999 we welcome guests from all over the world. Enjoy our relaxed atmosphere: about 50 persons can stay in the beds of our eleven differently designed rooms.
