Fantastic stay


I really enjoyed my stay here. It was a comfortable, clean, and convenient place to stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful which is key to a good hotel. The bar/common area was quite small


Great Place to Stay at Hamburg


It's a combined Hotel and Hostel with Shared and Private Rooms. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm which was perfect. Lot's of space, lockers and a seperate shower and toilette as well. The beds were


Very good!

Yael Kaltman

The hostel was amazing, super big, clean and confortable. The only thing we didn't like, was the kitchen which is not that well equipped and cleaned neither.


Everything ok


Near S-Bahn station AltonaRenewed and nice hotelPolite staffDecent breakfast Very good impression


Could be better


Wasn’t a great atmosphere in the common areas and the kitchen was a big mess and very untidy. Obviously a communal kitchen should be a clean as you use it approach but it wouldn’t take much for

Nordisch by Nature


Hamburg – the Hanseatic friendliness, northern German hospitality, delicious fish bread rolls and the scent of the wide world floating on the breeze. What would Hamburg be without its famous harbour? MEININGER also got swept away with the nautical charm of the Hanseatic City and furnished the Hamburg City Center Hotel in this theme. Beach chairs, pictures with ocean motifs and maritime souvenirs decorate the rooms and get the guests into the right spirit for their Hamburg visit as soon as they arrive.



The MEININGER Hotel Hamburg City Center; always worth a visit.


MEININGER is simply everything: business hotel for  business travellers, shared rooms for backpackers or class trips and family hotel for parents with children. But most of all the MEININGER Hotel Hamburg City Center is a place where you can relax wonderfully in rooms with modern facilities without having to watch the price. MEININGER makes this very special atmosphere absolutely unique! 


Many backpackers and Interrail travellers are drawn to the special charm of the Hanseatic City on their sightseeing tour of Germany. In the MEININGER hotel dormitories they can find comfortable but affordable accommodation that goes easy on tight travel budgets.

And just in case the business traveller spent too long amusing himself at the Reeperbahn then he can check into MEININGER at any time and have a leisurely sleep in the next morning with late check-out.

Families enjoy going on an exciting harbour tour during their city break in the metropolis on the Elbe River. In the family suite of the MEININGER hotel the cot is already ready set up. 

With its inexpensive shared rooms MEININGER is well prepared to accommodate school classes, sport clubs or large groups. After a day’s sightseeing, there is time in the evenings for the young people to play a round of table football or pool in the game zone before bed.


Discover our neighborhood in Hamburg City Center


MEININGER Hotel Hamburg City Center is located in the neighborhood of Altona-Nord, a charming area which has a population of around 23,000 people. Hamburg itself has thousands of fantastic sights and tourists activities, but you don´t have to even venture out of this locality to experience some fun activities. If you are a backpacker looking to have some fun and chill out then why not check out some of the great taverns and restuarants nearby where you can grab a beer and some great food. There are plenty of different types of restaurants with enough culinary variety to satisfy all palates- from great German places, to vegan restaurants and burger joints.

Additinally, there is the Stage Theater Neue Flora, a performing arts theatre nearby, so if you are a family looking for a day out then look no further than this. There is also so much more to see outside of this neighborhood and it is therefore fortunate that we are well connected to the rest of Hamburg, with Hamburg-Altona station just a few seconds walk from the hotel. The borough of Altona-Altstadt is just to the east and holds a popular Sunday morning fish market where you can pop down and sample one of the delicious fish sandwhiches known as ´Fischbrötchen`. As you move further east you can visit Elbphilharmonie Hamburg concert hall, which is the city´s tallest building and overlooks the harbor. It is one of the most advanced and sophisticated concert halls in the world creating a unique and memorable sound. Hamburg Dungeon is a great place to visit with the family or on a school trip- it has real life actors creating a spooky and exciting atmosphere as well as much more!
