From the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof):

On foot: Leave the Central Station at the exit Spitaler Straße and walk to the left until Deichtorplatz / Deichtorhallen. Cross the street (important!) and turn left walking under the bridge. After the bridge you can see a&o Hamburg Hauptbahnhof on the other side of the street. The main station is a 500 meters walk away from our hotel.

By U-Bahn: Take the U1 from the Central Station one stop to Steinstraße. Leave the station in the direction of the subway. Therefore, it is best to climb the front. Arrived, go left up the stairs, which leads you to the intersection Amsinckstraße / Klosterwall. Cross the Amsinckstraße and follow it in the course of the traffic. Go through the underpass until you see the a&o on the right side of the street.

From the Central Bus Station (ZOB):

The easiest way leads through the district. Since you can easily get lost in the winding streets, we recommend a small detour on the main roads. At the central bus station, turn left into the Adenauerallee. Cross the Steintorplatz across from the Museum of Arts and Crafts and continue past the Steintordamm at the Central Station until you arrive at Steintorwall. Turn left here towards Süssen and walk straight for about 10 minutes. Your destination is the Deichtorplatz, which is hardly overlooked thanks to the large area and the Deichtorhallen. On the other side of the square you can already see the Speicherstadt. In the Deichtorplatz opens the Amsinckstraße. Be sure to cross over here and follow it on the right side eastwards under the station bridge. Then you should recognize our a&o hostel.

From Hamburg Airport:

Take the S-Bahn S1 direction Wedel / Holst to the Central Station. The line runs every 10 minutes and the journey takes about 30 minutes. Leave the main station at the exit Spitaler Straße and after a left turn follow the Steintorwall to Deichtorplatz / Deichtorhallen. Cross the street and turn left into Amsinckstraße. Go through the underpass until you see the a&o on the right side of the street.
