This is a good place to stay in a convenient location. The three balconies in the reception lounge overlook the entrance to the Hauptbahnhof. The staff are competent. The breakfast is very generous (no extra charge - included in your overnight stay). As you would expect with the location, rooms that overlook the Kaiserstraße are affected by the noise. A... More

The location downtown Frankfurt is perfect - just 50 steps from the escalators going up from the main train station to Kaiserstrasse.. Some of the other reviewers have mentioned some sketchy people outside the hostel - and yes, you will see some homeless and drug users around - but our experience is that they want bother you if you don't.....

I booked this place to stay for one night as it was right outside the station and I needed to catch a train the next morning. The day before I came I decided to read a few reviews about the place and was quite shocked to see people were talking about crackheads etc hanging around outside and I just thought... More

There were some sketchy people staying there. In my room was an old man (70+) who was clearly living there. He smelled so badly and he always closed the window and it got so stuffy Bc he was a smoker and just sweated out the grossest smell. Showers are good in the morning but by afternoon it's clogged and you... More

You get basicly what a hostel should give you.A slight crowded room with a bed, a not-so-clean restroom, a plain meal. The location is perfect, and nothing more worthy of praising. If you are simply looking for a bed to stay for one night and not too expensive, it might be a choice.

I stayed there 2 times during Musikmesse in 2012 and 2013. Great people, great location, I won't search for any other hostel when I'll be in Frankfurt next time. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

The location of the hostel is bitter sweet. It is directly opposite the road from the main train station which is really great and is also right in the heart of a big strip of restaurants and cafés. The problem with the location though is its pretty dodgy. We turned up to the hostel at 3pm in the afternoon and... More

The location is very close to the Main Train Station in Frankfurt. However, it's also located in the middle of a huge red light district with lots of very sketchy people. I saw three people lighting up crack pipes on the way from the Bahnhof to the hostel. Not a good sign. The hostel has a fun bar with decent... More

I have spent a couple of days in this hostel. It is very well located, just a few steps from the central station (Mainz Hbpf) in a nice block. They´ve got everything you can expect (wi-fi, luggage room, a big common area) and the extra of pasta dinner included in the price is a good plus. Breakfast is also very... More
