While visiting Germany's second largest city, Hamburg, I stayed at the super cool Superbude Hotel & Hostel in St. Pauli.
I was very surprised by how much there was to do in Hamburg, and if you are interested in reading about some of the stuff I did while spending the weekend, go check out my guide "Top 15 Things to Do in Hamburg, Germany".
Before you can start exploring everything Hamburg has to offer, you need a great base, and Superbude is exactly that. I've put together everything you need to know below, and when you are ready to book, click here to find the best deal, and use the code “superdeal” to get an additional discount of 5 Euros.
Let me know in the comments if you have any questions.
The Superbude is located in the hip and vibrant St. Pauli quarter. From Hamburg city center you take bus number 3, which takes around 10 minutes and stops right outside the entrance.
If you prefer to travel by train, you can take the U-Bahn U3 line to Feldstraße station and walk the last bit of the way.
The Superbude has two locations in Hamburg: St. Pauli and St. Georg. The St. Pauli hotel has 89 rooms and is close to restaurants, bars, and boutiques, while the St. Georg Hotel has 74 rooms and is close to the center of the city and the harbor.
Both branches share the same cool interior and vibe. The combination of a hotel and a hostel lets you have have a private room (if you want it) but still enjoy the community in the common areas and hang out with other travelers.
The community area is filled with books, magazines, board games, and two iMacs, so you can keep yourself entertained if the weather outside calls for a quiet night in.
The hotel offers free wifi throughout the entire building and the bar at reception is open 24 hours a day if you want a snack or something to drink. The staff is young and friendly and is available for any advice you might need while visiting Hamburg.
Superbude offers private double rooms, or 3, 4, 5, or 6 people rooms, so you can have it exactly as you want. All rooms have a private bathroom including towels, sheets, a safe, and a flat-screen TV. However, I wasn't able to find any non-German channels, so if you don't speak German, don't expect to relax in front of the TV.
The rooms are decorated in a super cool way, and you can definitely spend a long time looking at the newspaper wall or any of the other cool little details.
The hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk away from grocery stores, bars, restaurants etc., and you definitely won't run out of things to do in the area. Be sure to check out my city guide to Hamburg to see some of the cool stuff St. Pauli has to offer.
Besides the 24 hour bar, Superbude offers breakfast for €9,90 per person from 7:00 to noon. The late breakfast is perfect if you want to sleep in a little and have a relaxed morning.
The breakfast buffet includes homemade bread, waffles, eggs, cereal, toast, and multiple kinds of meat, cheese, and spreads.
All in all, I loved staying at the Superbude St. Pauli in Hamburg. It is easy to get into the city center, and the area has plenty of things to do and see. Its unique design and interior make the hotel/hostel stand out from any other place I've stayed at.
I also love the hostel vibe and community areas, but still being able to sleep in my own room and have my own bathroom. 🙂
Thank you to Superbude Hotel & Hostel St. Pauli for hosting me during my stay in Hamburg. As always, thoughts and opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
