Every month we present you an #awesomeshop across Europe which sells our wonderful products. This time we step a bit out of line because not only shops are selling our cards and magnets – the Superbude Hotel & Hostel in Hamburg has our postcards in their assortment, too.

The Superbude is a mixture of hotel and hostel. Here you can have the comfort of a hotel and the nonchalance of a hostel at the same time. They love to host their guests and always meet them amicably on an equal footing. This creates a very special, comfortable atmosphere and that’s why the principle of trust applies here. Everyone is allowed to help themselves at the fridge and breakfast and then announces at the check-out what he or she still has to pay. “This functions now for 10 years like that and it is a lot of fun.” The Superbude is not just a venue for travellers, also the neighbours are coming here to exchange information and create ideas. It is the concept to offer a fashionable but affordable accomodation together with practical ideas for upcycling on your own and without the unnecessary frills.

The interior itself is based on the characteristics of the city and you can find Hamburg in all corners of the place. They found Pickmotion while being on the search for postcards with motifs of Hamburg. “We like everything that is not standard or find at every corner and our guests like to send postcards home to their families and friends.” There was the match. A cool design, something outstanding, different – so the cards ended up in their lounge.

The Superbude team provides their guests with recommendations aside from the typical attractions of Hamburg. That includes theatre, exhibitions and concerts, too, of course. Some particular cooperations with clubs and theatres are interesting, because guests can get places through a special guest list or some price reduction. Furthermore, the locals of the team collected the best tips on one page. So you are taken care of all around for the ultimative Hamburg experience. But that is not all the Superbude has to offer – with their own events like the Soundkuchen (cake of sound) they build a bridge to music and with cooperations similar to the one with Millerntorgallery, they connect to art. Thus, the Superbude also has a lot to offer regarding art and culture.

About Pickmotion they like the uncomplicated collaboration, the changing motifs and the gaudy colours. The retro style in a Polaroid format mixed with a modern imagery “fits perfectly to us” and also the display is an absolute eye-catcher and puts a smile on everyone’s face.

If you are planning a travel to Hamburg soon, the Superbude Hotel & Hostel definitely is a good place to spend a wonderful time – we highly recommend it!
