“Lack of communication”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stayed there for 2 nights.
At first we booked 8 beds at a 14 bed dorm room!
But then i wanted to cancel the one bed because one of us couldn't come but the guy who read the email understood that i wanted to cancel the whole reservation and he cancelled it!!
That was the night before we were supposed to go to munich!
Then followed an email chaos for me trying to explain that i wanted to reactivate the reservation but no one answered me until one hour before we had the meeting to depart for munich!
When we arrived at the hostel we ended up 4 people in one room 2 and 2 in separate rooms!
So the whole experience with this hostel was terrible!The funny things is that the same thing happened with some other guys sharing the room with us!
Moreover the kitchen was not cleaned by the stuff and it was so dirty that you could barely find a clean dish!Never at this hostel again!

Asked for a room for 5 by emailing the hotel directly but I was told that they are fully booked. I then saw one available on booking.com and proceeded with the booking. Upon swift check in, we were given a nice and clean room with 3 bunk beds and an ensuite toilet and shower, comes with TV, towels and hair dryer. Definitely value for money as we paid less than 15 euros per person!

The Meininger chain is a great bunch of hotels across Europe definately worth trying while you are travelling. Large youth hostels they are full of all types of travellers and great for meeting people. My boyfriend and I stayed at the one in Munich and were greated by super friendly staff who were very welcoming and helpful! Our room was absolutely huge with a private bathroom. The lobby is always busy with something to do. Attached is a bar for relaxing and grabbing a drink as well as they offer breakfast in the morning. The hotel is walking distance to the train as well as to Marienplatz. Would definately recommend to all backpackers!

The hotel is in a great location, just ten minutes walk away from the main train station in Munich and about 15 minutes walk away from the city centre. If you don't fancy walking then the tram stop is right outside the hotel, it was quite cheap around 5euros for a day ticket. Also one of the oldest beer halls in Munich is situated right opposite the hotel with great food, drink and a amazing atmosphere.
Our room was clean, with great bathroom facilities and a large TV. Towels were not included with our room and we had to pay 1euro a day for them, also there are lockers available but make sure you take your own locks to lock them with.
The staff were very friendly and all spoke excellent english, however we did have a problem with loud music from the bar down stairs going on until 4 in the morning! We all struggled to sleep and when we complained to the reception, they turned the music down in the bar and then 10 minutes later turned it back up louder! However we were on the first floor and our friends on the second floor never heard any music and slept soundly.
Meininger is a nice hotel just make sure you get a room on the second floor or above!

Around the corner from the Hackerbrucke station, this Meninger is located ideally for any trips in and around Munich. The rooms are clean, airy, warm and functional. The shower in the room was powerful and hot and there is a small bar next to the reception. The breakfast is very basic but nevertheless nice and the staff were all extremely helpful and courteous. The Wi-fi was free and worked perfectly and the lobby was comfortable enough. The elevator is extremely small and can be a bit slow sometimes.
There is a great beerhall just over the road from the Meininger which is definately worth a visit. The food (especially the currywurst) is extremely nice and the beer even better.

This was my time staying in a HOTEL with dorms and not a HOSTEL. As I was expecting the same atmosphere that one would receive in a hostel, I found myself a bit disappointed. The guest kitchen was also lacking and the breakfast was expensive. But other than that the rooms were very nice and clean. Televisions are in the dorm rooms too, maybe not the best idea as some people like to watch tv while others are trying to sleep.
