          They didn't bother us for the most part.

          They wouldn't let us have alcohol in our rooms. I know it's childest, but if I want a beer I shouldn't be told by the staff that I can't have one.

          Tidy and comfortable rooms, well equiped. Personnel with good knowlege of english. Although the hotel is mainly for young people having fun and the lobby was full of them, my part of the hotel (5th floor) was really quiet.

          But because of too thin walls you could hear every word said in the neighbours room although said in normal tone. I recomend ear plugs and sleeping mask for those having trouble sleeping

          Location is perfect, Staff are kind.

          There was picture of the room on the website, that had nothing to do with the real room.

          Convenient location - near the central railway station. Rather clean. Good breakfast. Generally, pefect value for money.

          Toilet paper was over in 4 days and nobody put the new one. We registered for our flight online, but could not print our boarding passes.

          a bit far from Train station, not as close as it is described. However, think of the price, it is acceptable.

          Very very noisy during the night because of the noise at the hotel; my room was located near to the street much noise too because of the traffic

          Rooms were clean.

          One could think the hotel is near by the central station. If we consider Hamburg is a big city, it indeed is. However, you should also consider you will have to walk a while before you can reach it, always provided that you find the right way (it is indeed quite difficult to find).

          Proximity to the main railway station in Hamburg.

          Very crowded during breakfast. Lots of back packers.

          Good place, hotel chains can be familiar which is a good thing

          Much more expensive than their Munich counterpart

          The staff were excellent from the word go and the rooms were spacious and clean. I was pleasantly surprised that, even in the hostel rooms, there were en suite bathrooms and showers. Breakfast was first class.

          I want to talk about what I don't like about the hotel. First of all, the staff are not very accommodating, out of four staff I talked with , only one is warm and helpful, and another one can't speak English well. Another thing, I bought the wireless service for three days, however, I had to enter different password everyday and it wasted me one whole hour one day to do this. The last but not least, the breakfast sucks and I wanted to get the refund for the ticket of the third day's breakfast which I didn't have before my check-out, and I was rejected. I will not choose this hotel any more.

          This is a hostel not a hotel.

          I booked 2 rooms but on arrival they only had 1 room even though I had proof of booking.
