Me and my friends are just on an inter rail and this is the second hostel we've stayed in. But it just seemed so bad that I had to write something about it. Hostels are usually pretty cheap but the United hostel was a total rip off. I don't know about the refugees, we didn't see any or at least... More

The Wifi is poor, the people at reception don't look happy. As mentioned in someone else's review, the hostel has a large number of refugees staying which means if you're travelling and want to meet people, this is not the place. I can't say how often the bathroom in the room was cleaned as the floor always seemed dirty. The... More

It is really easy to get around from this hostel, because it is close to the "Hauptstache". You can go from here to anywhere in Europe literally! On the other hand, the neighbourhood is not so great, but still very secure. If you just need a place to crash at night this is a place to stay!!!

Clean, comfortable dorms, flashy bar and even a cinema! Great value. We were there for Germany's world cup victory as well and it was an amazing night. The staff were helpful and friendly and it felt better than most hotels we've stayed in. Will definitely return.

I really loved this place! The price was very low and the quality super high! Super clean, the personal is very kind and I had a really nice experience because I met a lot of people from everywhere! I highly recommend it :) it's 2 blocks away from the main central station (Hauptbahnhof) and all is close! The river, the... More

I have resided in a 12-bed room for some nights, for around 15-20 € per night. Although "12 bed-room" sounds noisy, the special room layout and bed design made me sleep quite well: Each bunk bed has a back-wall, so that it is a little bit more private space than in other hostels. Internet works well in the rooms and... More

I had to book a room here because I could not find a hotel in Frankfurt, Room was good, clean, bathroom in our room, was great. First time sharing a room. The experience was ok. Location is excellent, in the center. Wifi worked fine.

If you're looking for a clean hostel while travelling in Frankfurt, this is your place. It's quite close to the city center and the train station and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast which I had as a part of my booking was alright as well.

The hostel is very expensive (45euro) for a 14 bed dorm. It's also 50% full of refugees living full time in the hostel. Parts of the hostel felt like no go zones - purely because people were using the area as a home rather than a hostel. Additionally the hostel looks tacky and dirty. 100% would not recommend.

Friendly helpful staff. Convenient location and safe as well. Room was clean and quite spacious for what you are paying. Bed was quite comfortable and breakfast the next morning was more than adequate. I enjoyed my stay there and would recommend to anyone travelling to Frankfurt and looking for easy convenient and comfortable accomodation in Frankfurt.
