The location warnings are amusing but pretty true, however the security process is top notch and I never had an issue with the locals, and I always felt safe while there. The staff are great and the vibe is nice and chilled. (The gender separated) Showers can be a bit small and personal but the toilets and rooms are clean and fit for purpose. Noise from the street is audible on the first floor but ear plugs in a hostel are easy to come by. Great place to stay all things considered.

The only problem (and it's actually an advantage at the same time) is the location because it is loud. Other than that everything was perfect. The bathroom is big and everything is working perfectly. It feels like a hotel with the price and atmosphere of a hostal.

If you don't care about being in the red light district, location is really good! Next to main train station, close to the river and shops. Could be cleaner, but breakfast and common area are pretty cool but a billiard and many other games

When checking in and talking to the staff, none of them were overly kind. They seemed annoyed. The outside of this place is very scary. There's people shooting up heroin with needles in their arms laying on the side of the street and others sneaking around smoking coke. I felt very unsafe and uneasy, once I walked out of the hostel, so many people were starring at me and making me feel uncomfortable. There's brothels in every building around the hostel with men guarding the doors.

Some peoples are leaving bad reviews on it and I is not fair. The localisation is in the red light district and they are weird peoples in the streets at night it is true but they will mind their own business if you don't talk to them. This area is the closest possible from the train station and the city center. For the cheap prices of the beds and the huge amount of check-in and check-out everyday the staff is doing a pretty amazing job at managing it and create a nice atmosphere.

Neighbourhood is sketchy as hell, but probably the best you can get in Frankfurt.

Staff has good attention with guests. There is a good lobby to relax. Beads ok. Rooms seems to be clean. There is only one male toliete for the entire floor. And only 2 male showers for the entire floor. There is maybe around 5 rooms each floor, with 8 beds each room. I felt there were not enough showers and tolietes. Location is good because it is around 1 block from Train Main Station. But it is near to burdels which make it looks not secure outside close the night. Inside it feels secure due to entry control.

Liegt genau am Rotlichtmilieu, viele Obdachlose auf den Strassen, Hostel an sich ist aber völlig in Ordnung, angenehme Atmosphäre und auch sehr sauber, etwas stickig im Gang und Bad da es keinen Abzug gibt. Happy our: 18-20 uhr bekommt man 1 Liter Bier für schlappe 3.50 € :D

L'auberge est facilement accessible par la gare par contre, elle se situe dans le Red light, c'est donc un quartier bruyant et un peu creepy. Néanmoins, magnifique auberge, bien équipée et salles de bain bien entretenues.

My only issue was the mold in the shower we had. Otherwise, it was great. Also, a guy was yelling and slamming things one night outside of the hostel and it woke us up at like 5 or 6am, but they warn you in the email and hostel world app that this is the red light district. So, things like that tend to happen. I guess my only other issue is that instead if dog cages, I'd recommend that they get actual lockers for people to store their luggage.

+. Cool stuff, very comfortable beds, good space in 4 bed dorm, showers/WC clean and function well, Nice lobby, barbecue/sitting area out the back. - Tons of noise rooms facing the street, didn’t much like the area, but safe for me as a tall male. Good for quick stop near the bahnhof. Single sex dorms more convenient for me, not available here. Value for money not so great.

BED BUGS!!! I booked a private room for one night , took a nap on very comfortable bed without knowing there was bed bugs. Went out with a group for the free pub crawl - the staff who ran this were amazing and it was a lot of fun at the Spanish bar - BUT coming home I noticed bed bugs on both twin beds. I went to reception with this concern and not enough was done. offered me a dorm room because no privates were available, I asked for new sheets instead and changed them myself but I stayed up instead and did not sleep. Ended up in hospital after my flight the next day with a severe allergic reaction to the bites covered all over me. Thankful I joined the pub crawl and hadn't spent the whole night asleep without knowing there were bed bugs or it could have been worse.

Although I rate the hostel higher there are some thing I want to point, first of all is the area where the hostel is, I was shocked to find junkies over the streets around the hostel, I travelled alone and I did not fell safe outside, the second thing is about some bed bugs i have unfortunately got there, I came back home with several bug bites and the last thing is about the backyard where I saw mice. I really had a very good experience in Frankfurt and i would like to highlight how amazing is the hostel rooms, facilities and staff.

Good location, terrible structure. I stayed in a 3 mixed dorm insulte. On the 5 th floor. Every time someone took a shower on the community bathroom my dorm got flooded. I stayed for two nights and it happens 3 times. When I told the reception the guy (not so happy) said that it happened before but they don’t know from where the water comes so... didn’t took any action.

It's a really loud spot to have a hostel. The surrounding area feels quite sketchy with lots of people doing heavy drugs in the open. As far as the hostel itself, I would say it was pretty good. If they invested in some air conditioning units I would have given it 5 stars, but because it was hot we had to leave the windows open, therefore, all the noise from the street comes in. I used headphones to block it out but if you're a light sleeper you might have some problems.

Good hostel, staff isn't the friendliest thought. It is right smacl dab in the middle of the red light district, so lots of noise and there are, ahem, a few interesting people around day and night.
