We especially liked the happy hour time when we could buy two mixed drinks for the price of one. Breakfasts were great. Staff very helpful.
Water running all over the bathroom floor after a shower.

I really really like this hostel, one of my faves on this trip – the staff is great, they're welcoming, always very helpful and will sort out any problems straight away. My favourite part is probably the bar, where there's a good vibe and you can choose to be social or just hang out and do your laptop thing with a beer in the evening. The breakfast is also really nice for the price. I've tested both the double room, dorms and the apartment on the top floor by now, and all are very good deals. The area is not the nicest, but very central in terms of the train station and the main shopping street and so on.
The bathroom in the top floor apartment was a biiiit smelly, think it was the shower drain or something. Other than that there's not much negative you could say about this place.

Me gustó la ubicación cerca de la estación central.
La calle donde está no me pareció agradable en medio de centros de entretenimiento para adultos y con varios indigentes o borrachos. Aunque cabe destacar que no te molestaban al pasar.

The hostel is very close to the train station, approx. 5 min walk. It was clean. Wi-fi was working properly. It seemed to be having all the facilities a hostel can have.
It was very hot in the room, even with the fans and windows open. The neighborhood is indeed very strange, but this is not a problem. The real problem was that it was super noisy during night and you cannot really close the windows unless you enjoy sleeping in a sauna. Definitely would not recommend to someone who wants a good night sleep.

Really amazing stay. The street location is shady but very close to the train station and the hostel once inside is very clean, modern and open. The rooms were very nice and well kept. The 24 hour bar is great.

Single room had everything i needed including an aircon during a heatwave.
Check in guys were helpful with any questions. Luggage storage available, bar onsite where you can hang out. Breakfast was pretty descent.
Hostel is in the red light district so dont expect pretty sights outside. However it was safe as only hostel guests could get buzzed in.
Free pub crawl on a thursday night with free shots and free beer tasting on a friday night. This made for a fun atmosphere and easy way to meet people.

The staff and the international environment are great! It is very clean and has lot of security. 100% recommended!
Nothing to rant about the property. All is just perfect, the only problem is the neighborhood but this is not their problem.

The worst hostel I have stayed in yet. Every bathroom reeks like pee, filthy floors, broken lockers and dog cages with old caked on s**t in them as luggage storage. Key cards are only needed to get into your actual room so anyone can wander in to the common areas and luggage storage. The area of town is not “entertaining and safe” as the hostel describes it, we were verbally harassed by men and drug addicts every time we left the building and felt we could not leave the hostel after dark.

I loved this hostel, the people were super nice. It was meters away from the subway station (so it was really easy to get there from the airport). Breakfast was very nice and cheap. Would definitely go back.

Los cuartos son limpios y cómodos, el bar es bueno y el personal es muy atento. La úbicacion es muy buena ya que se encuentra a pasos de la estación central y del centro turístico de la ciudad.
El único problema que tiene el hostel es que en la calle en la que está ubicado se encuentra la zona roja de Frankfurt y no hay buen ambiente, pero es literalmente una cuadra y saliendo de esa cuadra todo está perfecto. El hostel de verdad se esfuerza en que uno se sienta seguro y se nota.

Amazing facilities, can’t emphasise that enough, but the area is super dodgy and if I’d been travelling solo as a female, I would’ve felt really unsafe

The staff is very kind and helpful. All people spend time downstairs in the hall. in the room of 6 people only one girl slept. The location is just perfect, near the train station and metro, to the airport a maximum of 20 minutes.
There were no towels even one of the smallest. I was ready to pay, but wasn’t offered.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Felt safe. In a neighborhood which has a lot of drugs and prostitution going on, did not feel threatened by it.

Very clean. Great location. Very friendly staff. Nice outdoor courtyard. It was great to have the availability of refreshments and breakfast right there. Just a few blocks to the train station.

The location is quite close to the center, but it's in the middle of a sex street, so lots of creepy people are around. The room itself is very old and smelly

La propreté, les chambres sont spacieuses , le personnel est serviable , le petit-déjeuner est copieux et tardif
L'emplacement est stratégique juste à coté de la gare centrale , dans le quartier rouge , mais le soir les rues deviennent glauques et font peur , bcp de clochards ivre et drogués dans la rue qui font peur aux passagers, des verres et bouteilles d'alcool cassés par terre , des bagarres , chant et instruments en plein milieu de la nuit , bcp bcp bcp de bruit dans la rue . Bref , c'est malheureux , si vous êtes là pour sortir en journée c'est cool sinon évitez de sortir le soir . L'internet est absente dans les chambres et à l'étage.

O hostel tem um clima muito agradável, fui bem recepcionada. Fica super perto da estação central, foi super fácil chegar saindo do aeroporto de Frankfurt. O café da manhã estava bom, básico, sem exageros. Os armários são enormes, couberam minhas duas malas. O banheiro é fora do quarto, gostei bastante disso porque não é barulhento. Fica bem perto da estação , supermercado, da Praça Romeberg ( fui andando), farmácias e os pontos legais da cidade .
Tem muitos mendigos, prostibulos e pessoas usando drogas na rua, apesar disso eu não achei perigoso, andava às 2h da manhã e ninguém me incomodava, achei seguro. Pra quem tem dificuldade de dormir talvez ache um pouco barulhento.
