What about the location?

As the city becomes more popular, Pyjama Park Schanzenviertel is a welcome retreat which lies slightly off the beaten track in the bohemian area of Sternschanze.

The neighbourhood has a real alternative vibe about it, filled with quaint cafés and trendy vintage shops.

Also be sure to check out the restaurant next door which provides delicious pizza!

Sternschanze is a great place to get to know the locals, and a world away from the hustle and bustle of the centre.

However, if you’re still interested in seeing the sights, you’re in luck! The hostel is located only 5 minutes from the metro station, a good way to explore the city by day. By night, you’re only a 20 minute walk away to the famous Reeperbahn strip!

Hamburg is an up and coming city in Germany, known for its picturesque waterways and the bustling nightlife.

After seeing all the city has to offer, what better way is there to unwind than returning to Pyjama Park Schanzenviertel!

Who stays here?

Pyjama Park is far from a party hostel, there is no real common room or kitchen to socialise.

Although if your priority is simply to chill out, this shouldn’t be a problem for you.

Despite having no common area, the bedrooms themselves are very spacious and range from private rooms to 8-bed dorms. Each bed is fitted with a small light, plug socket and a black-out blind for that important extra privacy!

To make your stay as comfortable as possible, you get fresh bed sheets everyday and even free ear plugs to drown out any noise. You’re guaranteed to wake up feeling well rested and refreshed!

Pyjama Park Schanzenviertel is a great design hostel in Hamburg. Yet it is not ideal for those wanting a lively social atmosphere; not your typical backpackers hostel in Hamburg (but keep scrolling, dear backpacker).

It’s perfect for those wanting to relax in a chic and modern environment – and of course, get a good night’s sleep!

The hostel also provides a fully equipped kitchen, breakfast buffet and free tea/coffee to ease those morning hangovers (yes, yes, we know…)!

The best places to meet people would be the modestly sized common area which comes with board games, a good idea for those initial icebreakers! There is also an outdoor terrace, a great place to chill out and enjoy those summer days.

3. Generator Hamburg

Generator Hamburg is part of the international hostel chain Generator Hostels. It is quite surprising to us, but the hostel has a rating of less than 8/10 on Booking.com. Here’s why.

If you are a frequent hostel visitor, you may have experienced that energy of lively chaos that comes with smaller hostels and overcrowded dorms. This is great if you’re looking for a party, however if you’re wanting a more chilled atmosphere, Generator Hostel is the place to be.

This modern and stylish hostel could be likened to hotels simply because of the large building and the amount of space.

The size means you can choose to have a little more privacy, perfect for couples or those wanting to unwind.

Backpacking Generator Hostel is perfect for those searching for the mellow atmosphere of a hotel, but with the character and low price of a hostel!

Party Hostels in Hamburg

Oh the nightlife is huuuuge in Hamburg.

This is not a Hamburg nightlife guide or a Hamburg nightclubs guide but we can give you an idea on where you can stay if you want to experience parties Hamburg has in stored for you.

The Reeperbahn, the thousands of bars, the live concerts all over the city, the alternative district of Schanze and St Pauli.

So, what is the best hostel in Hamburg for partying?

Make it Instant Sleep Backpacker Hostel.

The hostel bar offers beer at cheap prices and even has a happy hour, 1€ for all drinks!

The hostel can get pretty loud as there are a few more bars located in the building, but on the plus side, you won’t even need to venture outside to sample the nightlife!

This isn’t to say you should limit yourself to staying in the hostel building though!

Instant Sleep Backpacker is located close to the hipster quarter of St Pauli and only a 10 minute walk from the buzz of Reeperbahn. There is also plenty to see during the day too, close to the Botanical Gardens and a short walk away from an S-Bahn stop, giving you access to the whole city.

Hamburg Hostels with Parking?

Are you traveling by car and would love to park somewhere in Hamburg?

Well, bad news. Not one of our hostels on this list have a good area for parking your car. We doubt, you will find any.

We used this Parking app for Hamburg.

It might be the easiest way to find a parking spot, at least for us it was super helpful.

As Hamburg is a big city, a car is not necessary and it’s a hassle to find parking. Best way to travel to hamburg is by taking the train and then public transport.
