Stayed here for a night. What a location. Just a few steps from Munich Hbf (Central station) and DB . If you are planning for a transit stay or even stay to roam around Munich , highly recommended. Cozy, simple but comfortable room and good sleep quality. Value for money. Just opp Starbucks coffee shop. As its located centrally ,...

This is a great, conveniently located, and clean hostel to stay in while visiting Munich. It is about at 20 minute walk or so to the center, and there is also extremely close public transportation options available. There is a kitchen as well as laundry machines, making it a functional stop for a backpacking trip, or a good option for...

The room was fine, the beds comfortable. The price was really cheap. A lot of people which took care of their things and no one disturbing. The staff was very helpful and nice to communicate with them in English and Italian also.

We stayed here with friends for a stag during 29/9/16-2/10/16 for Oktoberfest. While the location is very close to the Oktoberfest site, that is where the positives end. I was aware of the bed bug reviews on this site prior to staying here and didn't quite believe the reality of them! On first inspection the rooms and bed seemed clean,...

I visited here on September 29th to 1st October with 14 other people. At least five of us (in different rooms) came back with bites all over and my house subsequently was infested by bed bugs along with the others. This hostel is well known for this and refuses (even though I have paid £240 to fumigate my house) to...

Stayed here with a large group of friends for Oktoberfest. It's very very close to the site, so that's a bonus. However, the room was miserable. For some reason despite the simply EXTORTIONATE price, we all had to additionally stump up EUR50 on check-in for any damages. Fair enough we thought - then were shown the room. We had 2...

I would absolutely recommend NOT staying here. Out of a large group almost all people not only got bitten by bed bugs (severely) but have also brought them home. The hostel have since effectively told me they couldn't be expected to do anything about it, and it is not their fault, despite knowing of the issue previously!? No refund offered,...

I've recently stayed in this hostel together with a friend for three nights. We had our beds in a mixed dorm for 8 people, which was fully booked during our stay. We had chosen the hostel mainly due to its central location in the city of Munich. However, apart from the location our stay was disappointing. The staff isn't really...
