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!

The Hostel is great. It's clean, the beds are comfortable, they give you clean linen, the lockers are big (I had a really big bag and a backpack and both of them fit in) the bathroom is also clean with hot water for showering, the attention is great and it's not expensive. The only two things that I disliked or didn't enjoy that much was the ambience and the location. Once you leave the Hauptbahnhoff what you see is not nice (and this is coming from someone from a south american country)

Free breakfast and dinner. (You could tip them.) I lived in six-men room and the room space was enough. Restroom and toilets were clean.
Not bright enough.

Although the location might seem unsafe, entrance to the hostel is very well-managed making the premise safe. It's also very clean. The breakfast was included in my room price and it was very good. It's available till noon and it includes cold cuts, several kinds of cheese and bread, hummus, jam, fruit, vegetables, eggs, two kinds of yogurt, muesli, cereals, milk, soy milk, coffee, juice and more. There are also vegan options. The common areas are cozy, there's free tea and coffee all day long, and wifi works well (although it can be a bit slow in the rooms). In the evening you can enjoy a happy hour on mixed drinks and there are free activities for all the guests (on the night I was there there was "crêpe night").
The location is very convenient, just a few minutes from the main train station and the flixbus bus stop. A pleasant stroll will take you to the city center. However, it can seem a bit unsafe, especially at night. I am a female solo traveler and I didn't have any issue but be aware you're likely to see people doing drugs even in broad daylight. At night you're likely to run into very loud and possibly drunk people. But to be fair, this issue is mentioned by the property in their "booking.com" page. Don't forget to prepare 2 euros for the city tax (unless you travel for business) and 2 euros for the deposit for your key. You will also need a medium-sized lock as the chain of the locker is quite big (it's more like a drawer with a chain on it).

The location is a 5 min walk from the train station, everything was very clean, no issues with noise or anything. Lots of good recommendations for things to do in the city. Breakfast is simple but really nice.
The area is a bit sketch which could be a dealbreaker for solo female travelers (but security is good so not an issue inside the hostel), WiFi either barely works or doesn’t work at all in the rooms which was really frustrating.

The breakfast is fantastic, the people are really nice and the staff very thoughtful. They have people from all over working there, so language will not be a problem. The location is very strategic to get around the main attractions and take a train or a bus anywhere you want. It’s a Red Light zone, but honestly, compared to all the rest and the coast, it doesn’t matter. I walked around during whole day and night and felt very safe!
The location in a Red Light Zone can be scary at first, but once you get used to it, it’s nothing compared to the benefits.

The heart of red light district as others have stated before me and will after me. 5 minute walk from central train station. Everything within walking distance. Free breakfast is nice, safe catering is really small and laundry shares the same room as the kitchen. Staff is helpful with questions. If your rooms faces the streets then expect it to be noisy, but the pillows are large enough to smother out any unwanted sounds.

Proximity to the Hauptbahnhof Friendly staff
The neighborhood is dirty and a bit crazy. Probably the trade-off for the great price and breakfast
