“Great location, good facilities”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Myself and 4 friends stayed in the 40 bed dorm and were pleased with the hostel.

It's in a great location central to everything and staff are quite helpful. Dorms and bathrooms are clean and basic, just what you want and the bar is great with some good deals, especially on happy hour. Atmosphere was very good.

Only downsides are the expensive breakfast and WiFi can be hard to connect at times.

We booked a private room here for an overnight stay on the way through Germany. The room was basic but clean and it had everything we needed. The common room and bar was a friendly spot, and the bar staff were very generous with the drinks measures! Breakfast was pleasant.

I stayed here with two other friends in a six bed mixed dorm. The room itself was average, the beds super squeaky so if you even moved slightly there would be an incredibly loud squeak. However the beds were clean and so was the bathroom but the floor of the room was very dirty. The staff were very good and helpful and spoke fluent English so there were no communication issues. However, since the hostel is located on a street with several other hostels it is very noisy at night.. There was a fight between a group of men outside our window at 3am. The WiFi is also very poor which I think might be due to the amount of people using it but the common room certainly promotes meeting new people. The location is excellent! Really easy walk into the city and less than five minute walk to the central station. So if you don't mind a rough nights sleep and want to be close to the city - I would stay here.

I was so disappointed with this hostel.
We are a couple travelling and booked the 40 bed dorm.
THe girl at reception was really nice to begin with and then I said we're booked into the 40 dorm, I wonder what it's like... she suddenly turned a bit weird saying - why? are you not happy with that? is there a problem?

The dorm was fine, other than smelly shoes ;o)
The bathrooms for both 40 bed dorms are located in one of the dorms, there are only a few showers and 3 toilets for women here. They are filthy. It was really disgusting and I've stayed in some dodgy places while volunteering.

On our second night a member of security/staff member decided it was clever to have an arguement with a guy staying in the hostel in our room instead of taking the discussion outside... bad practice.

If you stay in the 40 bed dorm make sure that you are NOT beside the doors, you will never sleep. I felt really sorry for the people staying in these beds.

I really feel that Jaeger's are mocking the people who stay there and purely taking advantage of their excellent location by charging for as many things as possible in the hostel. If you are on a budget you are better off finding a cheap hotel where everything is included in the price and you avoid extra costs.

To be honest it is an average hostel. Nothing out of the ordinary. I've stayed in better, for less money and better quality. Pity because Munich is beautiful.

On Aug. 3., 2013, I paid for three nights, after making those reservations when I stayed at Jaeger's Hostel on June 25, 26, & 27. After I had unpacked, the staff ordered me to leave, saying I had no reservations, and that my claim of having stayed at Jaeger's in June was a lie. The staff did not fully refund my payment -- none of my ten percent deposit.

We stayed here for a few nights while travelling Europe and had no complaints at all!! The rooms were basic but spotless clean and big enough.The staff were nice and it was a great place to meet people. Its exactly what we were looking for as we were 3 girls travelling and wanted somewhere safe and clean to sleep! I would stay here again if i was travelling with a group of people but id rather a hotel if i was travelling with my boyfriend.

The best thing is the two euro stines! Other than that there aren't a lot of included thing , like breakfast or a kitchen. It's has a great location and the rooms are actually really nice. We stayed in the 40 person dorm and loved it! Not too loud at all. The bathroom was a little dirty. But still not bad if you have some shoes. And the common room is awesome
