Friendly and helpful staff. Good location. Clean facilities. Decent breakfast selection.
It can be a little intimidating to navigate the immediate neighborhood for the first time. But like anything, context helps. Take the Free Alternative Walking Tour that they recommend, it provides valuable and interesting context for the history of the neighborhood.

Stanza grandissima, che poteva ospitare 4 o più persone. Cucina all'interno. Bagno moderno.doccia molto spaziosa. Asciugamani in dotazione e anche i tappi per le orecchie, ma non c'è stato bisogno di usarli. Il ragazzo alla reception notturna, con i capelli lunghi molto molto gentile. La cosa più bella la colazione a buffet del mattino. Moltissime cose da mangiare, tutte diverse, rifornite spesso, in un ambiente molto giovane che sa di casa.
La zona sembra un po'degradata, soprattutto arrivando di notte. Ma è veramente a pochi passi dalla stazione quindi comunque comoda. Quando fai la doccia bagno tutto il pavimento. I letti singoli anche se avevamo richiesto il matrimoniale. Manca il bidet. Ci hanno chiesto 3€ per le chiavi ma ce ne hanno restituito 2.

Hostel is really nice place to stay. Friendly staff, help when you need it, and they stay 24/7 at a place, so it's so easy to solve issues if there any. Good breakfast. It's near the main train station, so it's so easy to travel to the nearest cities during a long stay at Frankfurt. ????

Está cerca de la estación central de trenes.
La decoación es de mala talante... hierro oxidado, cemento, sábanas negras y paredes oscuras, nada de muebles...

The breakfast is great.
They charge you 2€ extra that is not included, and they say that it's a "special city tax". Never heard about it.

Friendly people and a friendly atmosphere. Free breakfast, and even a small kitchen where you're allowed to cook your own meals or do laundry!

The location of the hostel is a blessing and curse: the good news is that it is located super close the hbf which makes for the perfect spot for a quick 1 night stay. The staff was helpful and kind. The breakfast was better than most 'included breakfast' at this price point with variety of cheeses, meats, breads, cereal and jam. Check out at 12 was perfect for sleeping in.
The location of the hostel was in the hostel of one of the most destitute areas I’ve seen in Germany: full of crack-heads, brothels, and countless transient men prowling around. Completely caught me off guard as I was searching for the entrance. The linens used on the blanket are absolutely of the lowest quality, stiff as a board. There was limited kitchenware and no forks available in the cooking area. Which takes me to thing that kind of shocked me the most: the large storage lockers available for rent (all downstairs in the cooking area) are old dog cages??? Looked absolutely unprofessional and I cannot believe the hostel manager is ok with such a presentation..

Muy cerca de la estación del tren y el precio era bastante accesible. Incluía desayuno y el check in se puede hacer toda la noche.
La cama era algo incómoda, y aunque la ubicación es privilegiada, se encuentra es una calle de mucha gente con malos hábitos.

Excellent place! Highly recommended. Jessica was very nice and helpful at check-in. All the facilities are clean and cozy. The breakfast, I cluded in the reservation, was very good and complete (try the homemade hummus, it's amazing!) Philippe and Acoco were very nice and friendly at check-out. Will definitely come back

The hostel has good facilities, is super clean and the staff is friendly and helpful! However, as many reviews already pointed out, don't expect any atmosphere here. It feels more like a hotel, so it's difficult to meet and talk to other travelers.

Ein sehr guter Service trotz des günstigen Preises und ich würde auch mit dem ausgiebigen kostenlosen Frühstück überrascht, gerne wieder !
Leider wusste ich nicht das dieses Hostel mitten im Rotlichtviertel ist , zuerst hat es mich ein wenig abgeschreckt. Trotzdem wollte ich den Betreibern eine Chance geben und wurde NICHT enttäuscht !

Bestes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis. Habe hervorragend geschlafen! Auch als Weiblich-Alleinreisende ist das Viertel gänzlich problemlos. Einlass zum Hostel und Wohntrakt sind kontrolliert und abgesperrt. Die Straßen sind nicht dunkel und menschenleer, vielmehr hell erleuchtet und bevölkert und vereinzelte Passanten nicht seltsamer als die Bettler am Bahnhof.

The rooms were really clean and quite spacious for a dorm room. The breakfast was exceptionally good. The bathroom and shower facilities were clean. The reception is open 24/7, which also ensures security for the entire building, since the surrounding area is a bit sketchy. I had a great experience staying at 5Elements and would recommend it.
The surrounding area is quite dodgy, but since it is openly communicated I knew and dealt with it. So it didn't affect my stay negatively.

Até agora, é o melhor hostel que estive na Alemanha (já estive em outros 7). A localização, por mais que seja na red light zone e tenha uma galera usando e vendendo drogas, é em frente a Estação Central de Frankfurt. Os quartos são bem ok, a limpeza é ótima, tem café da manhã liberado, a atmosfera é ótima (nem parece que é na Alemanha) e os funcionários são bem simpáticos. Resumindo: da porta pra dentro, o hostel é excelente, mas, mesmo com a red light zone, é bem seguro.

Good location if you need to be right next to the main train station. Helpful staff. Nice, included breakfast. Rooms very dreary and gloomy. No curtains on the beds and the bunks are so rickety that if you have to climb to the top bunk the whole thing feels like it's going to tip over. Not much atmosphere. It's the only hostel in Frankfurt I've ever stayed at, so I have no basis for comparison.

Le quartier de la gate n'est jamais le meilleur quartier d'une ville, mais c'est bien pratique. L'auberge est propre, sécurisé et au calme. Le dortoir de 6 femmes au 5eme étage est grand, les lits bien espacés. Les sanitaires et la douche sont nickel. La salle commune est confortable et le soir nous avons eu le droit à des crêpes. Bonne ambiance.
