Gen Hamburg screams German efficiency. Bright and airy but still warm and inviting. Clean and minimal but still stylistically bold in design and fully engrossed in the city’s culture. Take the sculpture of recycled bicycle frames suspended in the lobby which pays homage to Hamburg’s cycling culture, or the brick walls discovered during construction which were left exposed to highlight the building’s history. When you stay at Gen Hamburg you will feel immersed in the energy and culture of the city. The hostel which was once a recording studio graced by The Beatles; sits conveniently next to the central station. Socialise in a shared room or appreciate your own space in a private room.
