31 reviews of Qype GmbH in English
A very helpful site for finding a good hotel, restaurant, bar, shop or even just finding out what’s around you when you’re in a new place.
I particularly like the address to map function for finding a place. Really useful.

Qype should rule the world!
thats the best invention!
without it, id be lost in Hamburg, walking up and down the streets searching for a decent restaurant or bar!
Qype should seriously consider expanding out of Europe! yey to that
There's one reason and one reason only to visit Qype's german HQ - the lift.
Or to be more precise: the paternoster. A paternoster (for those of you who are unfamiliar with deadly elevators) is a "a passenger elevator which consists of a chain of open compartments (each usually designed for two persons) that move slowly in a loop up and down inside a building without stopping. Passengers can step on or off at any floor they like."
Yep, it's basically a box on a chain that you have to jump in and out of when you reach your floor.
Seriously, they should start charging for it.
Oh, and apparently, they run a pretty damn good local review company out of the second floor.

Have you tried stopping on the lift when it reaches either the top or the bottom of the shaft ?
great fun !
There is one in one of the British universities also I cannot remember which one. Was it Leeds ? Or perhaps Shefield

Then fun part about paternosters in fact is that you can step off between the floors. :-P
Yo Yo Yo
It's the Q to the Y to the P to the E,
the most dope online community.
With the slickest reviews, and the sickest hos,
and a technical team that rock da SEOs!
Word.(Apologies for the use of the word 'ho'; nothing else rhymed with SEO)

I don't find offense in the use of common gardening tools. I also think you do a disservice to the technical team comparing them to SEOs - a most divisory subject. Also could you refrain from referencing drugs like Cannabis.
Also, having the tasteless arrogance to end your comment with a sentence fragment is repulsive.
- 50 people
- a death lift
- a dozen party animals
- 17 million unique visitors
- reviews from Afghanistan to New Zealand
- lots of tea
- even more real-ale
- no pets (danimal excluded)
- the best website in the world
and much much more...
The paternoster is definitely a draw card here - and if the old rickety doorman isn't looking stay in and go round the top and back down again - such fun. There are concerns about snapping off an arm or leg in these frugally-built little lift boxes and only two at a time means groups have to take the stairs or trickle through slowly.
A very close second would be the brilliant and friendly team nestled on the spacious and bright 2nd floor. Views overlook the canal and it's in a prime spot to jog over to the Rathausmarkt.
Qype Hamburg is a great white space with large windows and hard workers... completely overshadowed by the lift that could pass as a prototype for an early roller coaster.
Friendly talented people inside, top off the brilliant ride to visit them :)
It was a dark and stormy night when I first donned my Qype shirt. Shielding my body against the onslaught of all that mother nature could throw at it, the shirt clung to each roll of ample flesh I jammed in it, promising salvation from the cold.
Outside, the dim light cast on the spotty reflective pools left behind by the rain illuminated my pathway to the salvation I sought beyond.
My departure, made easier by the Qype shirt, was unremarked by all but the musical tinkling of the chimes upon the door. Silence enfolded me as I began my harrowing journey. Splashing through a reflective pool, shattering the light within its depths, the Qype shirt helped me blend in to the night, while it’s protective layer continued to work its charm.
As each shape shattered, it’s liquid silver surface marred by my footsteps, small reflections of the symbol brazenly splashed across the chest were visible. A rectangle, it’s corners gentled, it’s sides tilted encased an astrix of singular beauty. Underappreciated, it was a beacon of light within the darkness of the shirt.
As the sanctuary drew ever closer, the tears streaking my face were lost to the rain, my body still protected by the Qype shirt, still hidden in the darkness by its encompassing fabric. Protected from prying eyes, the Qype shirt protected me still until, light within darkness, the Qype logo announced my presence within the dark as a reflection of light struck me.
Sighing, the Qype shirt protected me as I crossed the threshold into the unknown sanctuary…
More and more searches that I do on specific products and places are coming up with Qype reviews in the top results - well done! This is one virtual community that is great to be a part of, and even more fun at meet-ups!
Europe…Tick. Next up…time to take over the wooorld!
Thank you for the Insider goodies and the extras for 500 points.
A nice dark green long-sleeved t-shirt, a memory stick (very useful for our travels) and a very high quality mug - always very handy as I chain-drink black tea.
And a frisbee, too - I think my other half may well end up playing with that.
No sweets, mind - but that’s better for me. Oh, and I nearly forgot - lots of lovely bubble-wrap to pop!
OOPS dmj1962 shaming us Brits…first time I have seen this topic though.
I got my Ninja and he is so cute and ninjas everyone who comes in the door..runs around with the pet sheep in the night and gets sooo bad…plus bubbly, a frisbee, an apple MP3 player..a stick for the laptop..badges..
I am a VERY happy bunny!
I’ve just discovered that in the English version I’m a Qype Ninja now - is that because of my sharp observations and my piercing wit? :)
suzuki67, 20 June 2008:
No - that´s because of the fact you wearing pyjamas all day long.
I can proof - remember the pictures of 1986 - first day after holiday… ;-)
Matthias16, 20 June 2008:
Well, even a Qype Ninja needs his beauty sleep :)
Netty, 24 June 2008:
Hi Matthias16: I am also a Qype Ninja. What about suzuki67?
Matthias16, 24 June 2008:
Well, it all depends on the language, obviously: In German he’s a mild-mannered Qype Insider, in English he dons his guise as a Qype Ninja, and if they ever introduce dialect versions (and why not, they’ve done it with Wikipedia, after all) the two of us will be Qype Blomäuler :)
Netty, 24 June 2008:
@Matthias16: cool Qype Blomäuler! I wonder what the Welsh users, the Qypewyr Cymraeg, will be called: maybe DRAGON QYPERS or QYPERS in Welsh Qype costume?
Matthias16, 24 June 2008:
Y dreigiau Qype (?) certainly has a ring to it :-)
Netty, 25 June 2008:
Cool, auf Walisisch. It has a ring to it!

“Ninja” sounds so much cooler than “Advanced Insider”. I think that might have something to do with it :)
