Yes, it´s not that expensive (at least for Munich). Yes, it´s definetely centrally located. But rooms are as one might expect in a prison cell, only thing is we saw no guards and nobody locked the door. But one of us preferred to sleep on the floor rather than to trust the bunk bed. Breakfast was OK. So for a... More

This hostel has the most ideal location, 5 minute walk to main train station. The rooms are nice. The hostel is recently renovated so it was clean and each room has a sink. The staff were friendly. Free Wi-fi was a plus. This is a place worth staying for budget minded travellers.

This hotel is located just 5 min walk from Munich main station. Worth for the money. But very small rooms. the hotel is located on the first floor, and is difficult to identify. Ask nearby for the exact location of the hotel. * Good, cheap and clean rooms * Small rooms, room for 5 ppl will be very conjested *... More

The location of Hostel Central is good, very closed to central train sattion and about 10 minutes walking from the city center. I stayed in a room for 4, and was very wide. The cleaness was ok. The hostel there... More

We booked a last minute hotel for just one night in Munich. It was 62 EURO about 20 bucks cheaper than the cheapest room available at a hotel. The location seemed shady but we got in really late at night. The room seemed clean and we had a private bathroom. It was both me and my husband's first time living... More

Wonderfully placed hostel local to Munchen Station. Very, very clean and friendly staff. It would be worth saying the entrance is down an alleyway off the main street as we missed it the first time.

great value room for three people, that's in a central location. the rooms were clean. We only stayed one night but we got a good nights rest before leaving Munich. The only negative was the windows had no curtains but we had to up early!
