Practically across the street from the main train station and so close to the weissen for Oktoberfest!

I had a double room and it was huge! The bed was really comfortable and while we had to share a bathroom, we never had a problem.

My biggest complaint is that you have to pay for internet... and the internet was crap.

It was expensive, but most hotels and hostels during Oktoberfest will be.

Large group stayed here for a stag do, had a couple of 6 person rooms which comprised of 3 x bunk beds in each room, a table and chairs and small, lockable cupboards (need your own lock) which could squeeze a small rucksack inside. The shower room, sink and toilet were actually quite modern and a real surprise.

The hostel was chosen due to its location, 90 seconds from the metro station but also had shops and food close by. There was no blatant non stop noises/patying you sometime associate with hostels which was good!

The internet didn't work whilst we there but that was the only major complaint. The hostel was clean and tidy, good communal area with a bar and snacks. It was open 24 hours so no messing around waiting to be let in.

If I was returning to Munich in a group, id stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights over the Oktoberfest weekend. Not only was it crazy expensive as it was, but there were added expenses. No free breakfast, towel rental or internet. I'm surprised that they didn't charge for luggage storage. Phew! Although this review may set off a light bulb in their heads....
If you want a bottle of water then buy it from the vending machine downstairs. This place charges €2.60 upstairs at reception and €1.60 downstairs in the breakfast room for the same bottle of water. Huh?! I think coke/sprite would also have a big price difference too.
Location is brilliant for Oktoberfest. 5 minute walk. Had a lot of fun there. This is the only really good thing that I can say about this place.
Staff seem reasonably nice. Cleanliness of the place is so-so... not the best!
The common areas do not really attract a social atmosphere unfortunately so I hope you are going with friends! Not a good hostel for a solo traveler. Would be nice if they invested in some couches rather than just basic wooden benches and tables.
Showers never had hot water, not even warm! Bring a sponge with you and wipe yourself down because a shower is just impossible. Insanely cold! Are they trying to save on their water bill?
Book this place if you have run out of options. Book a tent early for Oktoberfest. Much better value and I'm sure that you will at least get a warm shower!

Enough clean, people very nice..
Lack of plugs in the rooms, be careful and you have to pay for wifi.. The kitchen is dirty but the rooms are cleaned everyday.. Don't need to make your bed : great when you arrive late !
Very satisfied in general !

We stayed for 2 nights only in a mixed bedroom with private bathroom. The room was clean and spacious. There was a room with lockers and space to leave bags (inside the bedroom). We didn't have anything in the bar or had breakfast there because it was kind of expensive. But they have discounts at night for beers and pizza. There's also a small kitchen. One thing that I didn't like about the hostel was that the wifi was not for free. The staff is nice and very helpful! The hostel is a little far from the center but there's a metro station near the hostel.
