comfy beds, good sized (big) shower room, nice bar, free dinners, close to the main station, great chilled shared lounge room with both the bar and outdoor private garden area on the ground floor and basement where you can watch a film and play pool for free
As with other reviews, the only real downside of the hostel is it’s location in the red light district. I would say it is not for the faint-hearted and you may see some disturbing/uncomfortable things. That being said, a minute walk down any of the surrounding roads and you are out of the district and if you just keep your head down and walk quickly no one should bother you (from a 22-year-old solo female traveller point of view).

Cada día hacen eventos para la cena, desde barbacoas, hasta cenas gratis.
Las duchas olían un poco a humedad, se podía ver que las cortinas estaban negras.

The hostel is well located in city center. It's around five minutes walk from the central station. However, the neighborhood does not look like the safest. Take care for late night commute. The hostel staff were freindly and helpful. A tiny kitchen, pool table and a tv to have fun with your travel company. I was in a four bed room and I didn't like the look. It was practical for sure, but some colors on the wall will make it more fun and lovely.

Staff really welcoming and helpful, they managed to put me and 2 other people in the same room in spite of booking at different times Room was ok, not particularly nice but it was one night, so I can’t really complain
The position, unfortunately the area around the train station is nuts, never seen so many crushed people and drug addicts in my life, you really don’t feel safe and at ease there. Inside the hostel there were decent people though and the atmosphere was ok

Conveniently located right in between the train station and the city centre (it's also right in the middle of the red light district, but I wasn't bothered by that) Rather cheap Safe luggage storage facilities, also after checkout 12.00 checkout time
Not a lot of privacy, both in the bathrooms and in the dorms More of a social hostel than a quiet hostel (though many people might prefer it that way)

Everything was good except the location. Friendly staff, and very kind. I tried using my razor and power was out in my private room. I let them know this upon checking out and they were very understanding and even apologized for not having power. Also, I booked a 3 bed shared room and they upgraded me to a 2 bed private. Don’t know if this was deliberate or not but still I appreciate it. Location is in red district, a bit noisy because of construction in front of the hostel but other than that.

Very good hostel, and very good service, people working here are very lively, patient and kind! The only big inconvenience is that it’s placed in the red light district, with drunk and (sometimes) violent people on the street making a lot of noises. For a girl like me it was really scary and uncomfortable to go out of the hostel, even during the day. Hopefully the structure is safe enough so no undesired people can enter the building.

Der Unterkunft liegt im Zentrum nah am Hauptbahnhof. Das WLAN ist kostenlos. Es gibt einen Abstellraum für Koffer.
Das Geländer auf dem Hochbett ist niedrig.

A welcoming hostel with lots of facilities available, free breakfast as well! We enjoyed the warm hospitality of the staff, the rooms were clean and the lockers were a great size. We could fit both of our backpacks into one locker. The location is a little worrying at night, so take care when walking to and from the hostel. It’s a few minutes walk until you’re in the more pleasant areas. The location is great, but the street is terrible. The hostel shouldn’t be down rated for the red light district in which it stands. Thank you for your hospitality Five Elements!

Nice atmosphere. The location is great, near the station and the financial district. The neighborhood is not nice, but in less then 1 minute of walking you are in the financial district. Stunning view from our room!

The staff was amazing. They were helpful from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. The little kitchen in our room worked well for us and we really appreciated that they had a laundry room. The other guests were also great and we had fun playing games, my daughter even found a skateboard she could ride in the back! If you are in that part of Frankfurt and want a great hostel, this is it!
Elevator was really really slow.

As two girls, traveling alone, we felt super safe and welcome in the hostel! It’s a really nice place to meet people at the bar and also to stay for a few nights. Sure, the area is a bit shady, but for us it was totally ok :)

le stanze sono ampie e comode, alcune con angolo cottura. Ostello accogliente e in posizione molto centrale, si arriva a piedi dalla stazione. Unica problematica è che si trova in una zona poco raccomandabile, meglio evitare di arrivarci la sera tardi.

The location is in the middle of red light district, there were many weird people around the district, no matter in the morning or at night. As a female solo traveler, I felt unsafe, even though it was only a 5 minute walk from Frankfurt Main Train Station. And the noise of the area at midnight was unbearable, there were people shouting and throwing bottles outside, while it was also stuffy in the room, so I had choice but leave the windows open. Besides, in summer, there was only one fan for a whole room. They provide free dinner at 8 pm, and free coffee and tea all day.

O ambiente do hostel era muito bom, assim como as comodidades.
A localização, apesar de ser perto da estação de comboios.
