Location was perfect, just in the heart of the city. Overall atmosphere is best for people travelling alone.
Although hostel was clean but there was a bit strange odour throughout the hostel

I loved the place and the staff was awesome. The day I stayed, they had free crepes night and were delicious. Enjoyed very much my stay in terms of hospitality and facilities. Also they had free coffee and tea al day, which is also a plus. They also have soy milk and milk in case you want to add it to your coffee or tea.
I didn’t like so much the location, it is surrounded by motels, casinos, homeless people and drug addicts. I got lost one my way back and I was really scared, it’s a shame since it’s such a nice place.

Wir sind mit dem Zug gekommen und waren in 7 Minuten am Hostel. Wir haben die van Gogh Ausstellung im Städel besucht, ca 15 Minuten zu Fuss vom Hostel. Herrliche Lage und Blick am Mainufer! Das Zimmer bzw Appartement war super ebenso das umfangreiche Frühstücksbuffet. Wir werden das Hostel weiterempfehlen.
uns hat alles gefallen

Man gab mir das falsche Zimmer, durch einen Fehler des Mitarbeiters. Auf der Anforderung einer Rückerstattung antwortete er ich müsse warten bis der Chef da ist. Ich verlange immernoch eine Rückerstattung!

La posizione era perfetta nel centro e vicinissima alla stazione centrale, personale molto cortese sempre a disposizione per qualsiasi chiarimento, sala relax accogliente dove potersi rilassare!
Colazione troppo cara per quello che offre!

Great place to stay--near the train station which was a plus. Many fun things to do within walking distance. Nights seem a little sketchy with all the yelling outside, however earplugs were provided which was nice.

Right in the heart of the red-light district this hostel is central for everything you'll need to see on your stay in Frankfurt. It is a rough area but the hostel do warn you of this so if that makes you uncomfortable then this isn't the place for you. Great breakfast and given free on your third night stay. Staff were super helpful and rooms very comfortable!

Location was good by means of being close to certain places, but it is also very close to famous "red light district" of Frankfurt, and although everyone claims it to be safe, I didn't feel that safe when I was there. If you are a woman travelling alone, you might be mistaken for some women working on the street by the tourist or locals, which is quite ridicilous when you are walking with a luggage and looking like a lettuce with all the layers you put on because of the cold. Area isn't the best but nothing dangerous happened to me at least, other than that hotel was nice, clean and lobby is open 24h so you can just sit and chill if you dont want to sleep early but dont want to bother other people staying with you in the room.
It wasnt the best that they close the garden door around 10PM so if you are smoking or just need some fresh air you need to get out of the hotel, which's door is facing to many sex shops and brothel's and might feel unsafe after 10 PM.

5Elements Hostel Frankfurt: SKID ROW. On the city block of Moselstraße and Taunusstraße is where people with no money and nothing to do gather to engage in illicit activities. Drugs. Prostitution. Loitering. Petty crime. Not a place you want to walk to or visit. Research before you book.

The atmosphere of the hostel is super comfortable. Everyone is so nice and friendly. Especially the employees. They are so open, relaxed, and able to make the situation of the hostel enjoyable. The private room that we rent was quite okay as well.
The location is right near the Main station. While that is good, that also means it's close to the red district. The neighborhood at night was not as welcoming as at noon.

A little training on customer service will go a long way.
Loud music in lobby even after midnight. While changing rooms, made to check out and check in again and wait until 4pm.

Het bed sliep heel lekker. Vanaf onze kamer hadden we mooi uitzicht op de wolkenkrabbers en geen last van geluidsoverlast. Onze kamer zat aan de achterkant. Je kon met je eigen slot een kennel op slot doen en daar je bagage in achterlaten (ja, echt waar, een soort hondenkennel). De locatie in het red light district was wat ons betreft geen probleem. Wel moet je niet te bang aangelegd zijn, denk ik. Het was een hele ervaring op zich: er liepen veel verslaafden rond. Je hoeft overigens niet lang door het red light district te lopen indien je naar het centrum of centraal station gaat (ca. 3 min). Het was fijn dat het hostel zo dicht bij het centraal station was (we reisden met de trein). Er was shampoo en een handdoek aanwezig.
Er hing een vreemde geur in veel ruimtes in het hostel, maar wellicht is hier niet veel aan te doen. De badkamer leek niet heel schoon/hygiënisch.

Nice and clean. Beds, bathroom and the common area fits my standards for being clean. Free tea and coffee all day long.
It’s close to the red light district, so there will be group of weird people blocking the street several meters away from the entrance. So I always take a little detour when I came back at nights.

The only thing I can comment on, in a negative way, is that the reception is very cramped. It feels a bit dodgy walking around the area, but nobody accosted me. Great situation. Easy to get to, from the train station and very helpful and cheerful staff.

The staff were nice.
Not clean. Only two showers for a whole level , without intimacy ! The hostel is not clean. And the location next to a bunch of sex clubs!!!! And for 30€/night ? I do not recommend at all. Do no go there.

The hostel is located really close to the main station, which is a good thing, but I didn't feel safe on the street while walking as there are people using drugs and other things as well! Felt a bit weird walking there by myself! But afraid! But nothing really bad happened! Apparently those people don't tend to do anything with tourists! Hostel is okay! In general it's not bad!

Close to Main Hbf. Great beds, showers and lavatories. Ample space for personal and social on ground floor. Helpful staff members. Perk for my case: free breakfast after staying certain number of nights.

Las instalaciones muy acogedoras, la limpieza de los cuartos y baños.
La ubicación esta situado en zona frágil, tenebre y precaria de Frankfurt, para una mujer sola no es muy recomendable este lugar y si vas de turismo tampoco.

Gave a 4/5 for location. Dont get me wrong it is very well located (3 mins walk from Frankfurt main train station that get you anywhere in Germany) but near the station is where the drug dealers and the drug addicts meet. They are everywhere in the street so thats a little bit scary, but I had no problems with them (just walk as you know where to go and ignore them). The hostel is very secure and very comfortable. Breakfast is very good and diversified (6.50 euros very worth it)
