Hi so the room you could rent might have nothing Special about it. It is simple and clean but has a nice atmosphaere like the rest of the flat. The reason i moved there is the Location. your exact in the middle of the "Schanze" where you find planty of bars, ist only two stations from the centralstation and one to the famous Reeperbahn. Also the park "planten un bloomen" is 10 walkin minutes away.
So if you do a short trip to Hamburg you can do a lot even by Foot.
