I stayed at Five Elements for 2 nights recently and really enjoyed my stay. It is in a very central location (though it is in the red light district) and most attractions are in easy walking distance. The staff were so kind and helpful, they really went out of their way to answer all my query’s and to help me with anything and everything, thank you all!!

Helpful nice staff. Descent clean room and toilettes. Comfy bed. Very good breakfast for a hostel and also free supper along with cheap booze - not just for your stomach they allow you to meet other guests
The floor where i stayed was smelly

This hostel is very covienient for people arriving to frankfurt either by train or plane, it's very close to the train station, just a few blocks away. It is very modern, has 24 hr reception, and the employees are very friendly and helpful

Nettes Hostel in sehr zentraler Lage, keine 5min vom Hauptbahnhof entfernt. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr hilfreich und es ist 24/7 jemand an der Rezeption. Vor Allem der 24h verfügbare Kaffee und Tee war toll. Das Hostel liegt jedoch mitten im Rotlichtviertel, was es abends etwas sketchy macht, dort umher zu gehen. Alles in allem aber ein tolles Hostel mit sehr netten Mitarbeitern.

Pleasant stay, super helpful staff. Missed the breakfast for early morning flight. Better luck next time. 5 star easy. 6 star if you consider the price and distance from the Central station.

Clean, spacious rooms and nice staff! The area where the hostel is located is intimidating. There’s policemen everywhere. I saw people being arrested, drug addicts and drunken people lying on the street right under my window. Very trashy as well. I wouldn’t go with kids but for one nights it was fine.

We needed a quick transit in Frankfurt, so it was good that the main station was so close. Breakfast was nice, I absolutely liked the self-service coffee & tea. The staff who welcomed and helped us with breakfast were really nice. The room and bathroom were clean, we really liked the rain shower. For the price, I think it's really fair.
The guests who stayed next to our room couldn't comprehend being quiet after 10 pm. We were woken up by loud noises, including music, at 3:30 am on a Thursday, when we had a busy day ahead of us. We knocked their door and asked them to be quiet twice, but they seemed to be too drunk to understand. I went down to the receptionist, and the guy didn't really seem to care. He was in what I assumed was a phone call with a friend, considering the profanity and whatnot. So he basically paused the call to respond to me without any interest. I asked for earplugs and thankfully after searching a bit, he found some. Then he just went back to the call. Wifi was quite slow in the room.

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.

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..
