Superbude St. Pauli

Superbude St. Pauli

Project Description

Superbude St. Pauli is – like the one in St. Georg a mixture of a budget hotel and a hostel! The whole hotel concept is geared towards a youthful target group who enjoy travelling but have a small budget. Such guests would like most of all to crash at a friend’s pad in the respective town. Superbude seeks to provide exactly what one would expect from a host. Professional service in an easy-going atmosphere. The 89 rooms, suitable for all budgets, can accommodate up to 228 guests. Whether “economy” at 19 euros a bed, or the more luxurious double room from 60 euros, what all the accommodation options have in common are no-frills innovative design, free WLAN access, flatscreen TVs, quality interiors, a young and perhaps rather zany, but very friendly team, as well as a lounge where there is always something going on. It doesn’t feel like a hotel foyer, with all its concerts, events, or parties, which put one in the mood for a stroll through the neighbourhood, or unite visitors in the collective exhilaration of the St. Pauli football match just experienced at the neigh-bouring Millerntor stadium. Superbude is a successfull mixture between a Hotel & Hostel and therefore ideally suited for Back-packers, Families & Business Guest.

Within the public areas the Superbude shows ist rockstar character: the reception, lounge, and kitchen club are lined up in a 50-metre row and display a lot of what the Superbude has gathered into its repertoire on its world tour. Right inside the front entrance, knowledgeable drinkers will be astounded by a certain shelf unit! A unice piece is a showcase shelf built from PET Bottles which have been designed by Zurich students for poor regions of the world. Emptied and joined together, they serve as building material for stable hut walls. In Superbude St. Pauli they house newsletters and insiders‘ tips for Hamburg’s amusement mile.

Instead of a common thread, there is a thick rope running through the whole of the new Superbude like an ornament, coiling in the lounge area into the word “Quiddje” – the term of endearment used by Hamburgers to denote the rest of humanity at large.
