Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt has been the best hostel I have stayed in thus far in Germany. The hostel as a whole was impeccably clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and I loved the common room and the happy hour special! The only thing that I did not like was the location. As a young girl travelling alone, walking through the area at night was uncomfortable and somewhat frightening. However, I do know that this is something that you can not be changed, and I did feel very safe at the hostel itself.

Really lovely staff, nice rooms that were very clean, fun hangout area with the bar and billiards downstairs. Not far from the sights to see. The area around while slightly sketchy did not feel dangerous at all. Very close to the train station which was a very big plus. Would certainly recommend and will return if visiting Frankfurt again.

Super Hostel, super sicher, super Frühstücksbuffet (6,50€), nette Mitarbeiter, viel Platz. Lage zum Zentrum und Hbf bestens, wen es aber stört durchs Rotlichtmilieu zum Hostel zu laufen besonders nachts, dann lieber nicht. Ich kanns empfehlen! :)

The hostel has bedbugs (at least on the second floor). I also saw bugs in the basement area as well, when I was sitting on the couch as well as fruit flys in the kitchen. The staff were ok, some were quite good and others seemed not to care when you asked them a question. I would not stay at this hostel again.

Friendly staff, it has an elevator so if you are logging a big bag like I was it was super convenient. The restrooms were clean the room for 4 people was big and spacious had a desk which was convenient since o work remotely. Not once did I have a problem with the Internet. The location is convenient and best part they have happy hour every day from 6-8!! Even without happy hour drinks aren’t expensive a glass of wine was 3 euros not bad. I would definitely stay again!

Not the best choice for female solo traveler ONLY because of the location. I felt very unsafe going to and from the hostel. However, once inside, it’s very safe and comfortable. The beds were just OK, showers were alright, overall I wouldn’t stay here again but it is convenient as it’s a short walk from the train station.

It is a nice and clean hostel not far from the central station, but the street next to it is very dirty and full of drunk people, you also can find there drug dealers, so be careful and walk away. Inside the hostel is safe. The rooms and bathrooms are clean.

The location of this hostel on the one hand is great (right next to Frankfurt's main train station), but on the other it's in the middle of the red light district with all accompanying shady goings on. If I were a woman I'd have felt very unsafe venturing out (I didn't go out in the evening anyway). However the staff are lovely, the facilities are good (make sure to bring a padlock), and it's reasonably priced. So on the whole a decent hostel if you're OK with the location.

Es una buena opcion para estar, esta en la zona roja pero en realidad eso no es un problema, solo caminas una cuadra y listo, ya estas fuera de ella.

Needs more staff, there was an incident of a person urinating at night on the floor in the middle of the 4bed room. Went down, informed, there was one employee downstairs who said he cannot do anything ATM because he was alone and needed to watch the door. I left early for a meeting, came back late and ppl at the reception (which is at the bar) said it has been established that no one urinated. I turned the light on and saw the guy so high, that he was sleep peeing, he slept with no sheets on or nothing. Stayed 6 nights, changed my room for the worse one, on the loud side,1st floor, had to argue to get a slightly better offer, was accused of lying about a person urinating, no apologies offered, nothing. Next time definitely will avoid this chain. Will leave reviews accordingly

Good place for a budget stay. Provided a good service during my stay. Simple yet a good selection, breakfast is very good.

It's an alright place, the major downside to this hostel is you are directly in the middle of the red light district. Right outside the main door are two strip clubs, lots of roaches, and the occasional c***k meet-up. Be prepared to ignore lots of drugged up people and people attempting to hustle you. Interestingly, if you walk a block in any direction the city is quite nice! Just be prepared to keep the window shut all night as it is a loud city.

They’re was 2 people working on the reception. A guy and a girl. The guy served me, I’ve been working in restaurants/bars for over 7 years so i know how to treat paying customers, and his attitude wasn’t very good at all when we went through the check in process. Didn’t seem to care for male guests only female guests. On the other hand the girl working there was very nice and attentive. I never leave bad reviews but it wasn’t nice to be treated like that.

The check in process was hassle free. On day 2 I had to be moved to another room (there was something wrong with the one I was in - they didn't say what). They moved my stuff while I was out, which was OK. They reserved a bottom bunk for me, and gave me some breakfast vouchers for the trouble. I was very impressed with this. Good breakfast BTW. For anyone having concerns it is in the Red Light District - there are some dodgy characters around, but I never felt unsafe.

Very good hostel in a lively (red light district!) but safe neighbourhood with friendly personnel, clean rooms and good security. Very good value for money. I am grateful for a relaxed stay!
