Das Frühstück war sehr gut, Personal sehr freundlich und aufmerksam.
Der Flur wurde renoviert, überall stank es nach Farbe so richtig gemütlich war es nicht, sehr trist eingerichtet.

Sehr freundliche Personal. Sehr schnell vom Haupbahnhof zu erreichen. In der Bar unten im EG es war gemütlich und nicht teuer. Die Haupttür ist immer zu und durch Rezeptionist kontroliert, so dass im Hostel man sich sicher fühlen kann.
Der Spaziergang durch die Gegend da ist etwa unangenehm besonders abends und und in der Nacht. Verdächtige Personen schmuggeln Drogen, aufdringliche Prostituierte, Betrunkene, Ortsirre usw. - alles, was die Lage rund HBF in jeder Stadt so laut, chaotisch und drekig macht.

Clean rooms, comfy beds, big rooms, pleasant enough staff
It is a very large complex, cheep but not a good way to meet people if you're travelling alone

Five Elements is definitely a great value! The place was pretty clean and comfortable. Staff is really nice and the bar area was really fun to hangout in. Met some great people and got great food recommendations from the staff. Overall, a great stay. It is definitely in the middle of the red light district. But all the reviews are true, people won't bother you if you mind your own business. I would avoid spending too much time on Taunusstraße if you want to avoid the red light district.

I booked this Hostel based on Internet reviews what I saw is; - Good location but not for everyone specially during the night many drunk people with drugs in the streets. - The stuff is cool but the manager is rude. I had a problem with heating and the bed was moving while sleeping on it, and she kept arguing with me until I told her that one of the girl was in the reception checked the room and confirmed that yes it is cold, and when I started to talk about the pictures in Booking.com compare it to the reality she was keep saying “this is Hotel things not in a Hostel”Come on!!! So why all pictures of the same Hostel are not the same!!!” Then we agreed to change the room. - I checked two rooms, rooms are “very very dirty” and both rooms smell bad. - I have found cockroach in the room!!! It was inside something like a bedside desk. - The district is noisy all the night ... not good for business trips Or people can’t sleep with loudly sounds. - Not good heating “I live in Poland”. - Coffee’s taste is bad “very bad for me as black coffee lover”. Here are my thoughts: - Not recommended for a couple or a family. - Double check and confirm by phone everything would be necessary for you prior your arrival. Specially the bed!!! - DON’T TRUST THE PICTURES. - The stuff in reception are super cool and nice “but that doesn’t mean I would agree to live is such room”. - Checkin is normal and Checkout is fast. - Nice sofas in the reception but always dirty “I stayed in this Hostel 4 days”. - They have pass card “a small paper card which says yes you live here” .. this might add another layer of security. - For the same price you can get 3-stars hotel “I stayed 8 days, 4 days in this hostel were more expensive compare to the other 4 days in 3-stars hotel with breakfast included”. - My wife and I will NEVER come to this Hostel again. It was a mistake and lesson learned.

Tolle Lage und super Preis. Frühstück ist prima für den Preis.
Zu Beginn erschreckt einem die nackte Betondecke im Zimmer, ist aber vielleicht dem Preis geschuldet. Das rumpeln der U-Bahn ist auch nicht zu überhören, wenn es ruhig ist. Ein Fernseher ist nicht auf den Zimmern.

It's super close to the train station. Breakfast was great and the chilling area is really nice.
The atmosphere of the neighborhood is not very nice. It's full of drunks and drug addicts dealing in the street. I was warned it was in the red light district after making the booking. If I had known before I might not have stayed there.

Location. In the Center of town.
Drugs all a to I do outside which they have no control over but it was just crazy walking out and seeing people shooting up drugs.

Habiendo tantas personas compartiendo un espacio se entiende que pueda ser dificil mantener un lugar limpio, pero uno de los baños siempre estaba tapado y el cuarto al que fui asignado tenía olor de que no se hacía limpieza.

The staff was friendly and helpful, the Breakfast was great, check in and out was easy, there were good facilities to restore luggage, to wash, to work, and to hang out. Hair dryer is a plus! Location close to the station is good, but visitors better prepare to the quite rough street life in the neighbourhood. That might scare off an inexperienced traveler.

Staff was helpful and it's a relief to arrive to the hostel after walking through that dodgy neighborhood. Sleeping/bathroom area was clean.
The street from the station to the hostel has a zombie-apocalyipse atmosphere with really creepy creatures around. Two guys were doing crack just in front of the hostel, but police regularly show up as well. A rat was under my table in the lounge.

Edward is a gentleman and he was a good companion. Urshi was a great help with compassion. Surzle the guy with long hair has the most patience in the world. I loved their hospitality, welcome and kindness. I wish I had lived there longer. I am missing them with tears in my eyes while writing this review. I miss boris, eva, mariana, felix, mat and tynell. Love you all and hope to see you all soon.

It was a cheap choice for Frankfurt but I wouldn't recommend it if you have the opportunity to spend a little more money. The room was really cold, I barely slept at night, the overall level of cleanliness was poor, the staff was polite but not really friendly, like in other hostels and the location was average. It was near the city centre and the railway station but the area was full of drunk people, who acted weird and made me feel really scared to walk around.

It's one of the best hostel i have ever stayed. It's just near everything in Frankfurt. Be it train station or zeil shopping street or all famous attractions and good reasonable resturant. All nearby. Cost is reasonable. Rooms are clean. Service at reception is the best.

Really clean! Rooms were nice size, great size luggage storage.
Read the location. Definitely in the red light district. Creepy guys hanging around outside, drug deals happening right in front. The junkies that lined the street was unbearable. Been lots of places this location wasn’t great. Bathrooms are shared with the floor not in your room. At least not in mine.

Great value for money, comfortable room and good central location.
The bed in my double room was made of 2 single beds pushed together which kept separating all the time. This was really annoying and not ideal for a couple.

My stay at this hostel was overall smooth except for one hiccup. When I checked the price of my dorm bed on website the morning of check-in I realized that I had paid a lot more for the same bed in the same dorm. I paid about 30% more. Thinking it was an error in the system, I brought this to the attention of the hostel staff but they said they have 'special' last-minute prices. Just thought this information may be useful for those with flexibilty and spontaneity in their travel plans.

o hostel está em péssima localização, fica bem no meio da cracolandia de Frankfurt, o banheiro cheira mal, limpeza deixa muito a desejar, recepção não é muito amigavel. foi impossivel sair a noite, solicitei ficar em quarto misto mas fiquei em um quarto com 7 homens e só eu de mulher e não me senti confortável. não recomendo para quem viaja sozinho,prnicipalmente se for mulher.
