A&O Hamburg City
Ranked #66 of 108 Speciality Lodging in Hamburg
Reviewed 27 March 2017

We stayed there for two nights in a private room for two people, private bathroom and all, and it only cost 20€ per person per night. We had to pay extra for breakfast but not that much. Sure, it is no luxury hotel and there are lots of other guests (yeah, other people like budget options too, what do you expect?), but for the price we paid it was perfectly alright. it was also very clean and tidy and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: It's a high building. If you get a room on the top floor you don't hear the traffic.

Main thing to this hostel is the location its less than a 5 min walk to the underground and mainline rail. Its 15min walk to the central station and attractions.
The room was large very clean with typical type beds for Europe. Lift to all floors and there are stains on the corridor carpets
Staff are really friendly helpful with good spoken english. There are to bar rooms, a lounge and a sky bar, with reasonable prices.
The down sides are, it is a hostel therefore lots of young ones running around and the wifi is not free, other than a 2 mb when you register with A&O.

In this hostel you have to pay extra for the sheets. That was an unpleasant surprise when we arrived. Also, we didnt have a good experience because when we arrived at the room all the beds were messy, so we didnt know if there were already some people in there (they dont have numbers on the bed, so its not possible for you to recognize your bed). We had to go all the way to the front door to complain about it. They also have a double couple bed inside the shared room (which is really awkward for a hostel!)

one side is hostel and one side hotel; ok I knew that; BUT, I didn't know the two spill over and the service on hotel side is at the hostel level; noisy all over, out of control kids running everywhere; street sounds awful from cheap thin poorly insulated windows; mattresses HARD (do they buy them from the same supplier as prisons and army barracks use??) service at the bar is SLOOOOOW as the same staff do reception AND bar; the room floor and fitting are if I am polite 'basic'; fllor cold, no carpeting, no amenities in bathroom, towels ''well used''/

now if I am paying budget prices. Ok. BUT THIS FOR MORE THAN 130EUROS PER NIGHT?????????


Room Tip: I doubt they have any
