No toaster. What establishment goes without a toaster in 2019??? Also, only one bowl? Had to eat my cereal in a pot one morning. The kitchen is also really small, combined with the washing/dryer machine. The toilets/shower are on the floor, not in the room. I found the clientele to be extremely immature; leaving their dirty dishes in the sink, leaving left over food in the sink, putting dirty dishes back on the shelves (got a dirty plate, ewww).

Great hostel located within an easy walk of the main station. Lots of cheap eats around and amenities like supermarket etc. Close walk to the town centre. Great and friendly staff. Very very clean. Good showers and bathrooms on each floor- separated by female and male. Excellent breakfast. Can’t comment on vibe as stayed one night on way to flight home but was pretty good. Excellent breakfast.
Only one shower per gender per floor. So if someone is slow then you’re stuck- but the shower was very warm and high pressure. It’s located in red Light District so a few street people hanging around- I think they are fairly harmless but one did offered me money to go home with him- so some people may not feel comfortable.

It was super close to the train station, so easy to access from the airport. The breakfast was pretty good too.
For my floor, there was only one shower for women, which I never had an issue using, but I can see how sometimes people have to wait for it. The hotel is also kind of in the red light district, which didn't bother me, but it might bother some.

Great to meet people! Facilities are good too. Only bad thing is that neighborhood can be a bit sketchy at night

Only stayed one night here but would definitely stay at this hostel again. Super close to the main station and walking distance from the city centre . Yes the location isn’t the best but I didn’t have any problems while I walked there at night

The hostel itself was great - met some great people there. And luckily I did, because the area this hostel is in is not safe for solo female travelers, regardless of what it says. It’s okay, but just be careful. Great location in terms of distance - walked everywhere comfortably.

Such a good location. Very central. Excellent set up. Very well run. And the lift worked - every. single. time!
Can’t think of one thing they could improve.

Really cool vibes, the girl in reception named Urša was not just a pretty face but was very good at recommending sights to see and places to drink and party. Was a pleasure tasting beers and meeting the staff at this hostel would highly recommend this hostel.

Great staff, facilities and atmosphere - would definitely recommend it.
Being in the red light district (even though we knew this was the location, it was a bit confronting).

The hostel itself is fine. There was a weird sewer smell on my floor and my room was very musty. The musty smell may have just came from the other guy in the room. Con: Checking in was actually a pain. There was a "line" to check in but not a formal one as everyone waiting was sitting in the lounge area so it made it a guessing game as to who gets checked in and in what order. Plus they do it on the corner of the bar and there isn't much room to move past anyone standing there so they should move the check in location to literally anywhere else at the bar besides the corner. Bigger con: It is in the Red Light District and it's not the "appealing" one like in Amsterdam. It's a weird sketchy area that draws the questionable crowds. Biggest con: Hard drugs everywhere. I have literally never watched so many people do hard drugs out in public. Legitimately smoking crack or shooting up heroin all over. As I approached the hostel there was a couple sketchy looking men literally blocking the entrance to the hostel and were smoking some sort of hard drug right off of some tin foil. Pros: It is conveniently located by the central train station. Just so happens to be sketch central.

Great hostel! Staff was not only nice but really professional and super smart. There was a barbecue going on at the backyard, which made my life much easier than going out after having just arrived to Frankfurt. The hostel is also very well located, being close to the city center as well as the main train station. I recommend it!

When I went to check in, guy at the desk made me wait several minutes while he finished drinking his beer and smoking his cigarette. Otherwise place was as previously described. In red light district but felt perfectly safe walking around street at night and conveniently located near train station. Place secure, real issue was just the staff member at check in.

Easy check in and check out, comfortable firm mattress, perfect location for catching a very early morning train to the airport. It is in the redlight district, so rather noisy. Recommend earplugs.

Area de convivência é ótima. Staff muito bom.
Hostel fica no meio do distrito de entretenimento adulto, do quarto se ouvia barulhos da rua, para quem tem sono leve pode ser um problema.

Alles hätte besser sein müssen bei dem unverschämten Preis! Das Zimmer inklusive der Bettwäsche roch nach kaltem Rauch, es war unerträglich laut, die Fixer schrien auf der Straße die gesamte Nacht, der Frühstückskaffee war untrinkbar. Die Liste könnte viel länger sein - es war einfach schlimm!
