Hamburg hostels : Superbude St. Pauli
In what’s known as Hamburg’s “Most Sinful Mile” comes a hotel just as irreverent and fun – Superbude. Located in the bar and restaurant lined streets of the infamous St. Pauli district, now teeming with bearded, plaid-clad hipsters, Superbude tries to meet the trends of the day, and succeeds. With a young, warm staff well-known for their sense of humor and hospitality, and completely recycled furnishings that outfit the building, Superbude exudes the quirks and social atmosphere of a hostel while offering the space, cleanliness and amenities of a hotel. For all these reasons, they’ve won the hearts of countless guests looking for a current spin on their accommodations.
Superbude’s freewheeling message comes clear as you enter the lounge – candy-colored walls, wheel barrow chairs and a whole row of seats sewn from recycled jeans line the room, centered by a random leather punching bag, just in case you had a bad day, we assume. In the rooms, the wallpaper is made of cut-up newspaper clippings, mousetraps hand you leaflets and toilet plungers serve as clothes hangers. Bathrooms are huge and included in every suite, a rarity for a budget hostel, as are the flat screen TVs and large windows that face the yard.
