La ubicación del hostel no era la mejor, como decía el mail que nos mandaron previamente desde el hoStel, queda justo en medio de la zona roja y hay muchos homeless y personas drogándose todo el tiempo, si bien nunca nos hicieron nada, nos daba una sensación de inseguridad. Este no es un tema aislado, ya que si bien la habitación era grande y confortable, Nuestra ventana daba para la calle y era muy ruidosa durante todo el dia, sobre todo de noche. Lo demás excelente. buen manejo post covID.

Super friendly staff! No matter the time of day, they were always smiling and eager to answer any questions we had. The complimentary welcome beer as well as the breakfasts every morning were delicious. We booked a private room that was very large, clean, and comfortable. The hostel is located right next to Hauptbahnhof (the central station), which is great for travelers, but all the listings and even the booking confirmation warn you that they are in the middle of the red-light district. Be mentally alert and prepared for this, as we were taken aback even though we knew. But as soon as we stepped into the hostel, we felt at home.

Das Hostel liegt nahe am Hauptbahnhof direkt im Rotlichtviertel. Die sich in der Straße tummelnden Personen wirken zunächst abschreckend, im Hostel haben wir uns aber sehr sicher gefühlt. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Rezeption ist rund um die Uhr besetzt. Unser Zimmer war schlicht eingerichtet, aber sauber. Das Bad wurde 3 mal täglich gereinigt. Ein super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis!

The hostel was good. All the reviews mention the district, and that it feels unsafe, but I haven't yet read a review where someone said something actually happened to them. For me, it was fine to walk through the streets. However, I am disappointed by the hostel's response of saying it's 'entertaining', because we're talking about the lives of some very desperate and poor people on these streets, like d**g addicts and pr******s, and I think it's a bit disrespectful to see it as 'entertainment'

El hostal en si, todo bien ..me gustó la habitación que fui privada y el resto baños cocina etc ,todo muy bien.
No recomiendo ir en auto o moto ,la zona es lo más parecido a The Walking Dead en directo , lleno de drogatas por todos lados tube que guardar la moto en un parking 35€ me salió más caro q el hotel, el desayuno bien ,pero no ponen leche , la tuve que pedir y un desayuno sin leche es como ir a una pizzería y la margarita no traiga muzzarela.

Super cool hostel! Loved the atmosphere! Hostel was clean and Inside the hostel I felt really safe:€ Only downside was the location: I wouldn’t recommend walking the streets alone (especially at night). Kind if crazy outside:D

practical location close to central station, and cheap, but also in the red light district with hookers and drug dealers approaching you just around the corner, and incidentally a street fight with throwing bottles just when I arrived around 9pm - looks worse than anywhere else I've been to, but I'm pretty sure I was NOT actually in any danger

The location is somewhat scary but they’re totally open about it so you know what to expect. No problems, however.

Very friendly staff and good facilities. Our room was clean and the bathrooms/showers were great. As mentioned in the description, the hostel is located in the red light district, which means that the streets can be a little shady at night, but we always felt safe regardless! The little terrace was very much appreciated on the hot summer days!

Ich war schon ein paar mal dort. Nettes Personal, gutes Essen, gute Bar, gute hostelregeln. Ich würde es jedem empfehlen der etwas schönes in der Gosse sucht
Ach ich wollte morgens mein Tütchen rauchen. ( straff Zahlung 50€ wenn man auf dem Zimmer raucht ) so fuhr ich mit dem sehr angenehmen Fahrstuhl hinab. Leider konnte ich so das Panorama nicht genießen was die Hälfte der Zimmer bieten von ganz Frankfurt. ( ich kann nichts schlechtes findenden außer ) das in der Zeit von 15-20 min. 1 Polizei Einsatz waren um heroin junks zu verjagen das die Bänke für die Mittagszeit ein sauberen Weg haben :DD das war schon lustig. Jeder der mit so was leben kann ist es das beste Hotel/Motel auf der Welt sein :D

The hostel is great , it's clean and I think one of the cheapest in Frankfurt , people working there are friendly and always helpful. The breakfast is always included and with different menu for different diet . One time weak or maybe more there is a cooker that makes free dinner and what he cooks is so good man! He loves cooking and you can notice from the plates , I was so impressed that I wrote down the recipe . So good!

The location of the hostel is a blessing and curse: the good news is that it is located super close the hbf which makes for the perfect spot for a quick 1 night stay. The staff was helpful and kind. The breakfast was better than most 'included breakfast' at this price point with variety of cheeses, meats, breads, cereal and jam. Check out at 12 was perfect for sleeping in.
The location of the hostel was in one of the most destitute areas I’ve seen in Germany: full of crack-heads, brothels, and countless transient men prowling around. Completely caught me off guard as I was searching for the entrance. The linens used on the blanket are absolutely of the lowest quality, stiff as a board. There was limited kitchenware and no forks available in the cooking area. Which takes me to thing that kind of shocked me the most: the large storage lockers available for rent (all downstairs in the cooking area) are old dog cages??? Looked absolutely unprofessional and I cannot believe the hostel manager is ok with such a presentation..

Am Pasta-Abend gibt es für die Gäste umsonst verschiedene Nudelgerichte zu essen, welche auch noch super geschmeckt haben. Außerdem stehen die ganze Zeit Kaffee und Tee frei zur Verfügung, auch für umsonst!
Da die Toiletten in unserer Etage keine Fenster enthielten, fingen sie und der Flur schnell an muffig zu riechen.

Friendly and helpful staff. Good location. Clean facilities. Decent breakfast selection.
It can be a little intimidating to navigate the immediate neighborhood for the first time. But like anything, context helps. Take the Free Alternative Walking Tour that they recommend, it provides valuable and interesting context for the history of the neighborhood.

Stanza grandissima, che poteva ospitare 4 o più persone. Cucina all'interno. Bagno moderno.doccia molto spaziosa. Asciugamani in dotazione e anche i tappi per le orecchie, ma non c'è stato bisogno di usarli. Il ragazzo alla reception notturna, con i capelli lunghi molto molto gentile. La cosa più bella la colazione a buffet del mattino. Moltissime cose da mangiare, tutte diverse, rifornite spesso, in un ambiente molto giovane che sa di casa.
La zona sembra un po'degradata, soprattutto arrivando di notte. Ma è veramente a pochi passi dalla stazione quindi comunque comoda. Quando fai la doccia bagno tutto il pavimento. I letti singoli anche se avevamo richiesto il matrimoniale. Manca il bidet. Ci hanno chiesto 3€ per le chiavi ma ce ne hanno restituito 2.

Hostel is really nice place to stay. Friendly staff, help when you need it, and they stay 24/7 at a place, so it's so easy to solve issues if there any. Good breakfast. It's near the main train station, so it's so easy to travel to the nearest cities during a long stay at Frankfurt. ????

The breakfast is great.
They charge you 2€ extra that is not included, and they say that it's a "special city tax". Never heard about it.

Muy cerca de la estación del tren y el precio era bastante accesible. Incluía desayuno y el check in se puede hacer toda la noche.
La cama era algo incómoda, y aunque la ubicación es privilegiada, se encuentra es una calle de mucha gente con malos hábitos.

Excellent place! Highly recommended. Jessica was very nice and helpful at check-in. All the facilities are clean and cozy. The breakfast, I cluded in the reservation, was very good and complete (try the homemade hummus, it's amazing!) Philippe and Acoco were very nice and friendly at check-out. Will definitely come back

The hostel has good facilities, is super clean and the staff is friendly and helpful! However, as many reviews already pointed out, don't expect any atmosphere here. It feels more like a hotel, so it's difficult to meet and talk to other travelers.

Ein sehr guter Service trotz des günstigen Preises und ich würde auch mit dem ausgiebigen kostenlosen Frühstück überrascht, gerne wieder !
Leider wusste ich nicht das dieses Hostel mitten im Rotlichtviertel ist , zuerst hat es mich ein wenig abgeschreckt. Trotzdem wollte ich den Betreibern eine Chance geben und wurde NICHT enttäuscht !
