Um dos melhores hostels em que já me hospedei. Quarto e banheiros, novos, amplos e limpos, staff simpático e atencioso, tem elevador, próximo a estação central de trens/ônibus e também dos principais pontos de interesse da cidade, o que pra mim foi bastante conveniente, apesar de estar bem no meio do red district. Quando reservei, recebi um e-mail da acomodação informando sobre o endereço estar no meio da zona de "entretenimento noturno" , assegurando que, apesar de seguro, eu poderia cancelar a reserva se o fato me incomodasse. Achei bem atencioso. Por sorte, peguei um quarto com janelas para o lado oposto à rua e não tive problemas com barulho. E me senti imensamente grata ao ver um ventilador para aliviar o calor do verão europeu, o que não é comum nesse tipo de acomodação. Super recomendo!

Eigenrlich tolle zentrale Lage. Aber Frankfurts Bahnhofsviertel ist vor allem Abends heikel.

Hostel im Altbau in schwieriger Gegend. Werde wahrscheinlich nicht mehr im Bahnhofsviertel übernachten. Absolutes No go: Fahrradparkplatz ist bei den Mülltonnen. Da muss eine bessere Lösung gefunden werden!!!

I don't usually write google reviews, but the place is worth an acknowledgement! Great price, great facilities, great hospitality. Very friendly and staff, plenty of good people around. I stayed in a single room, and the whole experience was as comfortable as in any regular hotel, but with much more human connection. Thanks guys!

Overall the room was really nice with coffers under the beds to be able to store your belongings if going out. The shower was really nice, good water pressure and temperature.
They are not kidding about the Hostel being in the Red Light District. The street is definitely dodgy and if you're going in or out, move quickly and try to avoid the people on the street. Nothing else apart from that.

Close to train station, breakfast was included and sometimes I think dinner too. The common areas are fine.
Neighbourhood so badly, not feeling safe, is one hotspot that is only few blocks around, but quite dangerous, not for families for sure. Trying to respect the 50% of occupation per room, on my second night, on my second night was in person over the maximum.

It’s less than a 5 minute walk from the central station. The single and double room provides enough space for a short stay. Staff is very friendly and did its best to provide a better experience for me.
The bathroom in my single room was completely dirty. Wet towels were laying around. Hair was in the sink and in the shower. Toilet was dirty too. They must’ve forgotten to clean it. The room was okay. It was not clean by any means but at least it wasn’t dirty like the bathroom. The air conditioning is kind of a joke. It’s an old unit that lets you control the fan in 3 levels. It was not only loud but also had a bad smell to it. After I inspected my room, I asked for a different one. The staff was very friendly and apologetic. I was offered a different room with a cleaner bathroom. But this room smelled like smoke. Doesn’t seem like non smoking rules are enforced at this hostel. I complained again and was offered a room in the 7th floor with a shared bathroom in the hallway for a 50% discount. Although the room in the top floor was spacious and had a nice view on the city, it was very hot and did not come with an air conditioner. A tiny fan is provided. Bathroom in the hallway wasn’t very clean either. Overall, cleanliness in this hostel is clearly not a priority. Given the current global circumstances, I cannot recommend this hostel to anyone. It does not seemed to get cleaned regularly and wearing masks is not enforced. Visitors in the common rooms and breakfast area were not keeping social distancing rules and disregarded wearing masks. Staff was also not wearing masks. I didn’t end up staying and requested a refund instead. I received a full refund in cash.

The hostel itself was good with friendly helpful staff and a very good happy hour at the bar.
The location is probably one of the dodgiest I've stayed in, yes i know it warns you. We were glad there was a couple of security doors between us and the drug addicts, etc outside.

Les chambres sont propres, le personnel est très compétent, serviable et doté d'un bon sens de l'humour. Le petit déjeuner proposé tous les jours le matin est très bon et varié. L'atmosphère est conviviale, je le recommande.

I stayed there for 2 nights in a shared bedroom. Even though it is close to the central station, the sourrounding area is not very nice (specially at night) but still it worth it. Nice personal and bedrooms. The breakfast and dinner are included too!

The vibe at the hostel itself was so cool. Employees were so nice and helpful. There was breakfast and dinner included in our stay and that was so appreciated - It also brought people together. Fun games and nice basement gaming area.
The neighbourhood was TERRRRIBLLLLEEEE. My friends and I constantly felt unsafe walking around in shorts/skirts. I never had this feeling in Germany before. Lots of junkies in the area and we were offered money at some point in exchange for 'acts'.

It is very close to the Main area, but it is surrounded by strip clubs and junkies.
The room as not many wall plugs. There are more plugs in the bathroom, than in the room itself. (Room with included bathroom)

Plein centre de Francfort, auberge de jeunesse avec personnel sympa. Petit déjeuner assez complet. Wifi gratuit.
Localisation en plein dans le « quartier rouge » de Francfort. Pas à conseiller pour une famille, et assez bruyante toute la nuit.

Sehr leckeres Frühstück. Zimmer war sehr sauber. Rezeption 24 Stunden geöffnet. Corona Maßnahmen gut umgesetzt. Gemeinschaftsbad war sauber und 2 Zimmer teilten sich ein Bad.
Lage zum Bahnhof zwar gut gelegen, aber die Atmosphäre der anliegenden Straße war doch eher Rotlichtmilieu. Als Frau nachts nicht zu empfehlen. Mit Uber kein Problem.

Bahnhofsnähe Zimmerausstattung (Doppelzimmer) war sehr gut für diesen Preis kostenlos Tee und Kaffee den ganzen Tag der Lage entsprechend Ohrstöpsel auf dem Zimmer bequeme Betten Klimaanlage, so dass man das Fenster trotz Hitze zumindest schließen konnte
Wir wussten um die Lage im Bahnhofsviertel, deshalb war es ok. Allerdings kann man nicht verschweigen, dass die Lage problematisch ist. Man kann auch sagen: hier schläft Frankfurt keine Minute, es war durchgehend bis morgens Geschrei auf der Straße. Die Sauberkeit fanden wir nicht ganz so gelungen. In Zeiten wie diesen momentan erwarte ich einfach auch in einer niederpreisigen Unterkunft mehr Zwischenreinigung beim Frühstück an den einzelnen Tischen. Was ich momentan auch etwas aus der Zeit gefallen finde ist ein offenes Frühstücksbuffet ohne irgendeine Hygieneabtrennung. Aber da bin ich evtl etwas empfindlich.

To get it out of the way, like being said already many times, the neighborhood is a unique one. However whenever you don't bother your neighbours they will leave you alone and is walking around just fine. One of the greatest advantages of this hostel is the location, a prime location in the city. Everything is walkable by foot or accessible by public transport. Then on to the hostel itself. It's clean and now with all the corona protocols everything also feels sufficiently prepared for social distancing. A just fine breakfast is served, don't expect the world, but it suffices. The rooms are clean, large and provide in all needs. And finally the staff, always nice, and were always able to help with our questions. We were with the maximum group size during corona of ten persons and we could just always be seated. Thank you 5Elements staff!

Sehr nettes und hilfsbereites Team, Zimmer sind auch komplett angebracht und habe eine sehr angenehme Nacht hier vernracht. Die Lage ist zwar ziemlich zentral aber auch Recht laut und unsicher, da dieses aber sogar in der Hotelbeschreibung steht, sollte man dafür keinen Punkt Abzug geben.

Das Personal und die Atmosphere waren super und man hat sich sofort wohlgefühlt.
Die Lage ist natürlich gewöhnungsbedürftig in der Moselstraße am Hbf. Daher ist auch der Lärm im Sommer bei offenen Fenstern ein Minuspunkt.

Nettes Personal. Frühstück war toll für den Preis, vor allem der selbstgemachte Hummus. Super komfortables Bett.
Bis wir am Hotel waren, sind wir an einer Menge Obdachlosen, Prostituierten und Drogensüchtigen vorbei. Als Mann mit der Freundin an der Hand fühlt man sich unwohl. Ich war schon in Hostels an der Reeperbahn und da war es doch selbst abends nicht so unbehaglich. Beschönigen bringt hier nichts. Wer hier übernachtet, sollte dies definitiv mit einbeziehen.

Bad neighborhood, filled to the brim with drug addicts and prostitutes. Our female friends did not feel safe enough to walk to the hostel alone, us (two men) felts safe enough. Everything was kind of dirty, but not super dirty

La sala común está buena, hartos juegos de mesa. El personal super amable. Las piezas y camas cómodas y el desayuno bueno.
El hostel está súper pero está en pleno barrio rojo que para un turista que no sabe, se imagina algo como Ámsterdam. Pero es la peor calle de alemania de drogas, destrucción humana, suciedad y eso se debiera explicarse porque es impactante. No me volvería a quedar solo por la ubicación.
