It’s a little too cool for it’s own good sometimes—montages made from newspaper clippings on the walls, funky furnishings fashioned from crates, lots of high-tech lighting. But if that’s the only snarky thing to be said about an incredibly fair-valued hostel, the place must be okay. And Hamburg’s best lodging deal has plenty to commend it. Functional though colorfully stylish lounges and rooms are spotless, fridges are stocked with cheap beer, the breakfast is substantial, the beds are super comfortable, and bathrooms are modern and spiffy. A lot of rooms are cozy doubles and can be let as singles, though young backpackers and young at hearts on a budget often opt for a bunk in a four-bedded room. There are two Superbudes: This one’s in the St. Georg district, where you’ll be not too far from the lake and some good ethic restaurants, and another one is in the midst of St. Pauli nightlife.
