I was a faithful client of this hostel and must have stayed there for 7 or 8 times since 2010, always recommending it to friends, and at one point considered it the best hostel I have ever been to. But in the past two years it has become dramatically worse. My last experience was terrible. To make it short: -... More

I had a single room, situated on the 4th floor. The roof is inclined over the bed, so if you are really tall you might want to avoid this type of room – for my 1,70m it was fine, the room is spacious (for a hostel), clean, the heating worked. The view from the room, given I was on the... More

Staying in a youth hostel is a good study especially after your twenties. No need to tell too much, but this is the most economic way for a short hotel-stay in a big city, especially during the Book Fair. The hostel is located in the city, is clean and you can meet several interesting people if you sleep in a... More

I spent a Thursday night here in March 2014, and everything went to plan - with a bit of pre-planning! First off, be careful when booking this place! I secured a very affordable bed in a 4-bed room, before later spotting that (a) because I'm over 27, I'd have to pay an extra fee, and (b) because I'm not a... More

I spent a night at this place. The location is not bad, but if you travel with more luggage it might be problematic. I was just with a backpack and walked there from the Dom/Römer subway station. The walk is very pleasant, along the river. The good things: it was clean and it's possible to leave one's luggage in storage... More

I stayed here with my friends during the European tour of Siam Sinfonietta (youth orchestra from Thailand). The day we arrived is the final match of Euro 2012, there were a lot of people. The place was quite nice (I could see a river from my room), nice weather, less traffic, not very far from the center, very good breakfast.... More

I stayed here twice - in September 2010 and again in April 2012. The bed was comfortable, the noise not too loud and the building was relatively easy to find, being just the other side of the River Main - very close to the centre of town. I was tired during my first night there and decided to eat in... More

We stayed here our first night on our Germany trip- June 4th. A bit noisy perhaps, but rooms were adequate in size and beds confortable. It was also very, very clean. Meals in the cafeteria were also a very good value. The staff was friendly and efficient. The location is great--only a stree out front separates it from being on... More

I stayed two nights at the "Haus der Jugend" in Frankfurt which is one of the biggest hostels I ever stayed at and it was pretty fully booked (as far as I can tell). Nevertheless I was booked into a four bedroom instead of a 10 bedroom (for the same price) which I had a reservation for: Thank you!! And... More

I concur with most of the reviews. It's a good place for groups. However the rooms can be loud and the food is not great. But the location is ideal and there are seminar rooms you can rent for meetings.
