Had a lovely stay for 4 nights at this hostel. The cleaners are really friendly and kept the place spotless - major kudos and thanks to them, and the staff are very friendly. I would say the atmosphere is more like a hotel though, and in the three bed rooms there weren't individual lockers available - so I would recommend bringing a bike lock or something for peace of mind. In Ottensen which is a great place in Hamburg filled with awesome restaurants.
You will not find the beds cheaper anywhere else!

The former working-class neighborhood offers its inhabitants and guests a special flair. Cafes, restaurants and multicultural life shape its streets and squares.
