Very well located appartment near to public transport for easy and quick travel to the centre of Hamburg and with local shops and restaurants. The appartment was clean and very comfortable, with everything we needed. WiFi was good so it was easy to check all the places we wanted to visit. We did not drive to Hamburg but parking did not look as if it would be difficult. If using public transport, I recommend buying the Hamburg Card which covers all public transport, including travel to and from the airport and also the public ferries.
The apartment is very comfortable and well-equipped, and we were given an extremely friendly welcome, which included a bottle of wine sitting on the kitchen table for us. Daniela communicated quickly and efficiently with us before our arrival, and the check-in process was very straightforward. Volksdorf itself is a very pleasant suburb of Hamburg, with shops, restaurants and an excellent market on Saturday mornings. There is a forest just a few minutes' walk away from the apartment. It takes about 30 minutes to travel from the Volksdorf U Bahn station to central Hamburg, and walking to the station takes about 25 minutes.
One thing to note is that on the HomeAway listing for this apartment there is a section in German under the heading 'Additional pricing information' which says that bed linen and towels are provided at a cost of 7.50 Euros per person, and that final cleaning is either done by yourself or at a cost of 40 Euros. This is not stated anywhere in the English part of the listing. I am sure that this is just an error, but it is as well to be aware of these extra costs.
Overall this is a very nice quiet place to stay in the Hamburg area.
