Nice and close to the main station. Good price.
Was in what felt like a quite shady neighborhood. Beds made quite a lot of noise.

Nothing crazy, but a single room was perfect after a delayed train for an extremely reasonable price - just €40. Very minimalist :) The location is sketchy, but if it's just for one night it didn't bother me much - plus they notify you about it right after booking just in case you missed that. Great breakfast, clean shower, they provide the towels and bedsheets for single rooms, unlike the dorm. Can recommend!

It was a bit cold in the room, and the location is sketchy, but they do warn you about it

Zentrale Lage zum Bahnhof und die sauberen Betten.
In einem deutschen Hostel darum gebeten zu werden Englisch zu sprechen ist schon heftig während ich in Madrid vom Nachtportier im Hostel auf Deutsch empfangen wurde.Irgendwie verkehrte Welt. Auch ist es extrem laut von draußen,die Fenster können besser sein

Super nettes Personal, für die Lage können sie nichts (Rotlicht und am Hauptbahnhof, nachts etwas gruselig, alleine herumlaufen keine gute Idee), dafür innen wirklich ein schönes Hostel

As others have said, the location in the red light district is not great at night but it’s close to the train station. Nice beds and clean bathrooms. Staff was really great at setting up afternoon/night activities. A solid hostel other than nighttime safety if walking by yourself

location 10min to the train station, clean, comfy bed, surprisingly large room, good wifi, wonderful check -out-time, easy check-in, brekki (add. fee, buffet), the hostel itself is safe, no sus person will be able to enter the room section
to all those complaining about the location in the ugliest part of the city, the red-light-district: yes there are lots of problems on the street (as in every big city, so stfu). BUT: they DO warn you when booking that they're in that district. so stop complaining about that! towels could be provided (my opinion)

Nice Rooms and Security system
Mattresses have to be checked randomly. Glass doors should be installed at showers.

The convince to the train station!
It was located in the red light district. But was still safe to walk about as long as you're aware of your surroundings!

The rooms and facilities are very good, the location is good but it's located at a scary area, the staff told me "you'll be ok as long as you can take care of yourself", the hostel itself is safe. Confortable beds, clean facilities, kitchen very small but manageable, what I didn't like was the staff attitude, a little bit rude.

Red light area: not secure, with a kind of scary atmosphere on the street. I do not recommend it for anyone visiting the city for the first time. While the inside security is good, I still do not recommend this place. The streets are full of homeless people. Our first impression upon entering the street was horrible, with a woman vomiting blood. Based on my suggestion, I would not recommend this place, especially for those who are family-oriented.

Otel tren istasyonuna çok yak?n en büyük avantaj? b? b?rde otel kendi içinde güvenli
Odada wc ve banyo yok. Tren istasyonuna yak?n olmas? çok güzel ama d??arda çok fazla evsiz serseri vs vard? sabaha kadar sürekli ses oldu ama konumdan dolay? yine gitsem yine kal?rd?m????

It is close to the center but can surprise you or impact the outside environment and surroundings if is your first time to visit the city... The guys at service 10/10. It was great to have free tea and coffee. Social Room with games and entertainment 10/10 They had free pasta but I didn’t get there on time. Great service. Thanks!
It would be nice if the beds could have a curtain and a little more privacy. Could be much cheaper.

As with previous reviews..The name 5 elements are possibly some of the hazardous Elements that you encounter before getting to the safety of the hostel.. in the centre of red light district..avoiding sick areas on the footpath..drunk/drugged up people urinating in public.. arseholes at night doing wheels wheelspins and regular burnouts like being in the middle of a grand prix race track..and street cleaning crews being regularly escorted by police ..inside hostel is all good bar coffee

The staff were friendly and the bed was comfortable and warm. The Internet connection was flawless, and it felt safe while inside. It was also clean. If you can wear ear plugs, they are offered. The water for the shower was warm within 5 seconds, and there was complimentary 2 in 1 soap and shampoo.
I didn't like the location at all. The streets were full of drugs, drunks, and pimps. It felt very unsafe being outside in the dark, and since it's winter while I stayed, it was dark very early. The walls were very thin. The windows weren't insulated, so it was colder than it could've been. The bathroom was clean except for the hair on the walls, the painted shower instead of a tiled one, the lime scale on the faucet, shower heads, and the bottom of the toilet. If you bent down a little, you could see a line of limescale and muck right under the toilet bowl. The shower also didn't have a door, so the water went everywhere. The chairs were made of wood with no cushions, so sitting on them to eat was very uncomfortable. The bed frame dug into my legs as well, and I found it hard to get out of bed without pulling myself up by holding on to something. You can't regulate the temperature at all. I turned on the radiator because I like my space a little warmer than normal, but by the next morning, it was barely warm to the touch. I know that I get what I pay for, but a few minor changes like chair cushions and different bed frames could improve the experience a lot more.

Everything was clean, the staff was nice and helpful, the front desk is open 24 hours, which is perfect for a late check-in. It's super close to the train station as well.
A lot of junkies in the area. Though the hostel warned us about It's location and had a grace period of 24hr to cancel for free if we changed our mind, so it's on us for staying. It's a trade off though, because it's super close to the train station and if you're pressed for time, it's great. Or if you're junkie. You can find your people, police won't bother you from what we saw.

Great hostel in every way except for the neighbours. The location is good in terms of proximity to the main station, but is in the middle of a red light district. Not too bad during the day, but a bad area at night. To reiterate, the hostel itself is great!

The staff is very kindly and the location is near for the station metro.
The location has a lot of drug addicts and as a female traveler I did not feel safe and in the early mornings they make too much trouble, I could not sleep any night. Also inside the hostel there were problems on my floor, people fighting and they tried to open my bedroom. They banged on the door for a couple of hours.

We had a last minute need in Frankfurt and the hostel accept our booking. They were very friendly and had a nice bar. It was only for a few hours to sleep, but has everything we need. The bed is not very comfortable, but it was ok for the price and situation.
The region around Hauptbahnhof is not very safe, so I don’t recommend to walk alone at night.

Totally disgusting. Some people were using room as their long term residency. Ex. Foods on the bed. It was noisy during night 2 drunk girl was laughing and shouting in the corridor. Not helpful receptionist girl, even if i told i have a problem in my foot. Comparatively clean bathroom. Only good thing; couches in the reception.
