HVNS: A haven for new arrivals in Hamburg

HVNS: A haven for new arrivals in Hamburg


Are you coming to Hamburg in the near future? Imagine how nice it would be to touch down at the airport with your accommodation already lined up. No endless apartment viewings, no demanding applications, no stress.

HVNS [havens] offers easy access to fully-furnished apartments in a central Hamburg location, with a simple online booking process and convenient add-on services. 

A stress-free base to help you find your feet

The housing market in Hamburg is tight. For many new arrivals, unfortunately, that means living precariously, jumping from place to place and sleeping on sofas while you look for something more permanent. 

HVNS offers an opportunity for you to ditch the stress of emergency apartment hunting and get rooted in your new city from day one. The uncomplicated, digital booking process means you can arrive in Hamburg safe in the knowledge that your accommodation is already sorted. 

Simply tell HVNS what they need to know in three easy steps, submit your information, and they’ll get right back to you with an offer. With three categories of apartment and flexible rental periods, they’ve got options to suit all different needs and budgets - no matter whether you want to stay for six months or 12. 

To make sure your arrival in the city is as smooth and stress-free as possible, HVNS also offers 24/7 self check-in and an HVNS host, who will act as your contact person on site.

  • Heated floors
  • High-speed WiFi
  • Fully-equipped kitchen
  • Laptop-friendly workspace
  • Modern bathroom with rain shower

Apartments in Hamburg’s thriving Altona district

Located on a quiet street in Hamburg’s iconic Altona district, HVNS self-contained studio apartments offer members a slice of tranquility after a long day, but still within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Altona’s thriving, cosmopolitan community. 

A supermarket and a drugstore are less than a minute away from your apartment, and, thanks to great transport links, the rest of the city can be explored effortlessly. Located just a few minutes away, Holstenstraẞe station provides a direct connection to Central Station, Altona Station and Hamburg Airport, while Hamburg’s popular Sternschanze district with its numerous cafes, shops, bars and restaurants is just a 15-minute walk away. 

More than just an apartment

HVNS thrives on community, offering a large variety of shared spaces that invite members to socialise. Get to know your neighbours while chatting in the Lounge, get cooking together in the Cookery, or enjoy a sunset drink on the rooftop terrace. 

From the day of first contact, throughout their stay, HVNS members are given support to help them get rooted in the city, and invited to connect with one another through a number of annual events. The generous shared spaces you can make use of as an HVNS member include:

  • Gym
  • Coffee corner
  • Library
  • Lounge (with grab&go freezers and coffee specialities)
  • Event kitchen
  • Rooftop terrace with herb garden and grill
  • Parking spot
