Good hostel with great atmosphere and lots of large shared spaces to hang out and meet people! Despite being in the middle of the red light district, they have good security and once inside I felt very safe. Super close to the main train station and a short 5 min walk to the riverside. There's also a supermarket just around the corner. Room itself was clean however no privacy curtains. Great bathroom facilities. Would stay again!

The hostel won a best award. I can see why. Excellent location, attractive lounge, spacious dorms and high quality bathrooms, spotless kitchen, helpful staff. I rarely give 5 stars but this place deserves it.

-Great staff who are good humoured and helpful -Clean Room -Fun and spacious bar/lounge/chill out/terrace area -secure off street parking for bicycles -Yes the red light District is a bit dodgy/scary but it is only 150m walk to get out in any direction and long as you don’t speak to people, they will leave you alone!

El five hostel esta muy bien situado a dos manzanas de central statión , las habitaciones son amplias pero los baños comunitarios no son muy grandes y inodoros escasos en mi caso 1 por planta. El personal es sobrio como una catedral pero educados , los hostel deben ser friendlys , pero los caracteres son personales igual me tocaron los más serios de todo el staff. En definitiva deben mejorar , sio quieren progresar........ :-)
El trato tan sobrio

They received me and explain me everything quickly they made me feel like I was bothering them. When i ask them for the free pasta and the crepes they told me that there was only a piza and it was € 5 the hostel is housed in the red district. So outside you will find shops for prostitutes and drug addicts. There were no nocturnal activities at the hostess (trips to a pub, party, or meetings with other hostels). the rooms were fine. but the corridors smells to bathroom.

Overall this hostel is a great place to stay and conveniently located. Kudos to the staff: they are very friendly;) hostel has tea/coffee 24/7 free of charge which was great for us after a long trip; the day we arrived there was a crepes night - also free of charge; the next morning we enjoyed fantastic breakfast with lots of fresh produce: granola, oats, all kind of breads, freshly baked buns, hummus, veggies, olives, different kinds of cheese, meat and sausages; fresh fruits, all kind of jams. We also attended a free city tour and our tour guide was fantastic.
Hotel is located right in the middle of the red light district. As my friend and I are females, we were a little scared at first of the scenes outside on the street, but hotel staff gave us recommendations on where to go and what to do, so it helped us a lot.

As everyone has already mentioned, words are never enough for me to describe how amazing this hostel is. In short, it EXCEEDS my expectation. I paid a small amount of money and received too much, it's almost like a hotel. They have a kitchen, lounge room with comfy salon and free tea and coffee, what else I should ask for? However the number of bathroom on each floor seems limited, but that does not matter. I LOVE and will definitely come back. p/s: the location is perfect as well.
nothing. I wish I had something negative to say haha.

Very closed to the train station, but is located in the red light district. The room was spacious and got all the utilities we need. The sound proven windows really blocked the noise from the street at night. Breakfast is good enough to fulfil our need. But the reception is rather small to pass through while people stand. Overall, it's good value for the money!!

The location was very closed to the central station. I noticed they provide free dinners, which is really good for travelers who are tired of going out to eat. It took me a while to find some restaurants in the area away from the junkies which makes the place feel a bit scary. I had friendly roommates, which was great. The shower room was clean except for the toilet bowls.
the male receptionists weren't so friendly to me but the female ones were so nice. The male receptionists can't multi-task and don't smile. They only have one bathroom for each gender on each floor, which was annoying as I was on a business trip and it has affected my sleep timing. I have to wake up so early and sleep late just for me to be able to take a shower. The toilet bowls weren't cleaned up frequently.

staff was quick in response and helpful. Rooms need little thick curtains on the windows. I went to sleep late around 3 am and wanted to sleep a bit longer but In the morning the sunlight was seeping through curtains and was bright so a bit uncomfortable to sleep

It was a comfortable place to stay. The bar area was great for just chilling. The hostel organised a great pub crawl in the evening.
The breakfast wasn’t worth the price. Thankfully I only paid €2 extra as part of my booking, however, I still opted to get breakfast elsewhere.

Las instalaciones estaban muy comodas y limpias. Área de estar, de juegos, habitaciónes y baños excelentes todos. El personal muy amable.
La ubicación si bien es céntrica y esta a una cuadra de la estación central de trenes realmente es una zona fea no muy seguro para andar de nohe. La cocina es demasiado pequeña.

The breakfast is till 12... that means it can be had as a brunch too... tea, coffe, coco is free of cost 24 hours with honey, milk... rooms with card security access. Pleasing staff.... smiling and polite talk.... the stay is much more like a homecoming to university hostel...........

HOSTEL IS LOCATED ON THE SEX STREET OF FRANKFURT! I’m putting that in all caps because when i read the reviews I didnt see that mentioned anywhere. Because of it’s location, it isn’t necessarily the safest part of town but the staff does a pretty good job of security. I was the only girl in my 8 person mixed dorm that had all men over 30, and I talked to another girl that said the same so that’s not ideal I wish they would have put us together. Bathrooms are okay, but the common area is good!

Great hostel with a welcoming atmosphere. The staff was very helpful on information about the city or clubs. The neighborhood isn’t the best but there was no problems with the locals.

Incredible place, great atmosphere, cheap beer, happy hours. Only headsup is to look at the nearby streets, but honestly every place in Frankfurt in that area is like that
