Bestes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis. Habe hervorragend geschlafen! Auch als Weiblich-Alleinreisende ist das Viertel gänzlich problemlos. Einlass zum Hostel und Wohntrakt sind kontrolliert und abgesperrt. Die Straßen sind nicht dunkel und menschenleer, vielmehr hell erleuchtet und bevölkert und vereinzelte Passanten nicht seltsamer als die Bettler am Bahnhof.

The rooms were really clean and quite spacious for a dorm room. The breakfast was exceptionally good. The bathroom and shower facilities were clean. The reception is open 24/7, which also ensures security for the entire building, since the surrounding area is a bit sketchy. I had a great experience staying at 5Elements and would recommend it.
The surrounding area is quite dodgy, but since it is openly communicated I knew and dealt with it. So it didn't affect my stay negatively.

Até agora, é o melhor hostel que estive na Alemanha (já estive em outros 7). A localização, por mais que seja na red light zone e tenha uma galera usando e vendendo drogas, é em frente a Estação Central de Frankfurt. Os quartos são bem ok, a limpeza é ótima, tem café da manhã liberado, a atmosfera é ótima (nem parece que é na Alemanha) e os funcionários são bem simpáticos. Resumindo: da porta pra dentro, o hostel é excelente, mas, mesmo com a red light zone, é bem seguro.

Good location if you need to be right next to the main train station. Helpful staff. Nice, included breakfast. Rooms very dreary and gloomy. No curtains on the beds and the bunks are so rickety that if you have to climb to the top bunk the whole thing feels like it's going to tip over. Not much atmosphere. It's the only hostel in Frankfurt I've ever stayed at, so I have no basis for comparison.

Le quartier de la gate n'est jamais le meilleur quartier d'une ville, mais c'est bien pratique. L'auberge est propre, sécurisé et au calme. Le dortoir de 6 femmes au 5eme étage est grand, les lits bien espacés. Les sanitaires et la douche sont nickel. La salle commune est confortable et le soir nous avons eu le droit à des crêpes. Bonne ambiance.

Beds were comfy. Rooms were cheap. Can walk in to the centre in 15 minutes.
Bar is open 24/7 which may sound good... Until you're trying to sleep and all you can hear is the music blaring until literally 6am. Staff were also very ignorant when we were trying to check in, he was more bothered about finishing his shift than sorting the customers out Location is also... Interesting. It's in the red light district which we knew and we're fine with, but there are drug addicts walking around absolutely off their face everywhere. It actually seems really dangerous.

Die Aussicht aus dem Zimmerfenster war toll. Zentrale Lage war auch top, konnten alles zu Fuß erreichen. Personal super freundlich. Haben in der Nähe des Hostel gleich einen Parkplatz gefunden. Fühstück war gut, mit frischen Brötchen vom Bäcker.
Insgesamt war unser Zimmer renovierungsbedürftig. Das Bad auf dem Zimmer auch. Hatten auch schon leichten Schimmel im Bad und auch im Zimmer

This is a really great hostel. I've stayed in 100s of hostels around the world, this is one of the best. It combines industrial style with cosiness. The quality of the breakfast and the amount of virus killing handwash available during the corona outbreak shows the owners care about their guests. It's a great option.
I didnt mind the area at all. If you are nervous in a red light area you should know your route to the hostel in advance so u feel more confident walking through the red light zone. This is a nice area but a few streets are popular with crack smokers during the day. It's easy to avoid these streets if it makes you feel uncomfortable. Despite the local businesses the area doesnt feel seedy or dangerous. The crack smokers are surprisingly well dressed!

Hey, this has been probably the bests hostel I have stayed in. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great, they even treat us with a free dinner one night. Something happen with the room I booked for me and my boyfriend and they upgrade the room because of the misunderstanding.

The staff, the vibe within the place, the breakfast, and felt secure inside.
The location is a bit dodgy, in that it is very central, yet it is located in a not so good neighborhood with hoodlums roaming around at night. We even witnessed a street fight which did entertain us, as noone was injured!! (which was good). But, it didn't affect us or made us feel threatened. Therefore, the place remains relatively safe for tourists. So, don't look at these people. Just mind your business and you will be safe!!

If you are not fan of big cities who would not mind seeing 'other' parts of the beauty, the location would not be a problem for you. But otherwise, you should keep it in mind that this hostel is located in one of the hottest spot for nightlife in Frankfurt and would welcome any type of adventure (be it bad or good). Other than its location, I would give my bests for this place as a keen backpacker. The stuff is so friendly and ready to help you out.

Decent hostel—not the worst, not the best. Staff was straight-forward and gave a brief tour of the building, but not much else. I loved the room—we had tiny enclosed beds with curtains and they felt very private. The only thing was that my bed had somewhat of a weird smell that came through even the sheets and stuck to my clothing. There wasn't too much of a communal space, and I rarely saw people in the kitchen. Showers were okay, and the bathrooms weren't insanely dirty but I wasn't impressed.

Hostel is super clean and tidy, coffee/tea is free and they offer great events in the evening. Location is great (yes, it's right in the redlight district and a bit noisy - but everyone knew before), staff is super friendly and they play Offspring, Greenday etc. in the lobby. Feeling like a 16yr old again ^^ Will come back for sure!
