Nice light rooms.
An annoying employe - it’s hostel, not a school. The district doesn’t feel safety.

Located in a very dodgy area - middle of Frankfurt red light district with lots of people on the streets at all hours. The building itself is quite secure and staff are very diligent on watching who comes and goes but personally I wouldn’t recommend the area to females traveling alone. They have a great bar and lobby area with a good buzz and cheap drinks but for some reason the building has a really bad smell! Overall I’d give it 6/10.

Das Hostel liegt direkt im Rotlichtbezirk, was nachts wirklich unheimlich sein kann. Ich finde die Umgebung für alleinreisende Frauen nicht optimal! Auch die Ausstattung ist nichts besonderes, sehr einfach Betten und insgesamt nichts besonderes. Ansonsten ist die Lage relativ zentral. Für eine Nacht in Ordnung. Das Personal war sehr freundlich.

Gostei muito da estadia, conheci meninas maravilhosas no meu quarto. Só queria que o dormitório feminino não fosse mais caro que o misto. Mesmo o lugar que fica o hostel não ser uma boa vizinhança, não tive problema de andar a noite por lá. Façam o Alternative free waking tour as puderem!

This hostel was in the red light district which they give you a heads up about, so I didn't mind staying on this trip since I was with my sister but I was not prepared for how sketchy this part of town actually was. I would not want to stay here as a solo female traveller. Overall the hostel was nice with good daily activities, free luggage storage, free coffee and tea, nice lounge area, and very close to the train station. There was a strange smell on the floor and in the rooms- like plumbing?

Hostel muy cómodo. En cuánto a la ubicación está en un barrio rojo (drogadictos), la zona puede ser seguro por el día/tarde pero por la noche siempre con precaución. En general el trato del personal muy bien, todo limpio en orden Puedes comer ahí unas ricas pizzas a un precio económico.

Ha sido una buena experiencia; bien situado -a pesar de que por la noche el barrio es un tanto "especial" y esto dura hasta como las 9 hs- y de las otras huéspedes. Se puede recomendar el desayuno, que se paga aparte, y se agradece una bebida caliente durante todo el dia a disposición

Actual hostel is okay, it’s clean and well taken care of. Kitchen spaces are small, but ok. Bar is cool and common area is clean but not much of a vibe. The main issue is that the location is TERRIFYING. I was here with my boyfriend for NYE and I refused to go out after dark. I saw a guy smoking c**ck through the hostel window while waiting for food... Maybe more of a review of Frankfurt but, that’s where the hostel is...

Accueil au top, café et thé en libre service. Proche de la gare centrale, en plein cœur du quartier rouge
Douches petites mais avec un bon débit. Les refaire seraient un plus, quelques traces de moisissure, mais rien de grave.

Boa localização, próximo a todo tipo de comércio, estações de metrô, pontos de ônibus e a 2 minutos de caminhada da estação central (Hauptbahnhof) de trens. Café da manhã bem servido, ambiente agradável, acolhedor. Equipe simpática e atenciosa. Colchão e travesseiro confortáveis, quarto silencioso e chuveiro muito bom.
Apesar de estar localizado estrategicamente, o entorno do hostel é frequentado por prostitutas, usuários de drogas e algumas pessoas em situação de rua. Não é um bairro “bonito”, mas aparentemente é seguro - o policiamento é constante e todos com quem conversei disseram não ser uma região perigosa.

It was ok. I wouldn’t say amazing. The area is absolutely terrifying. Breakfast was decent. Late night construction/fireworks/Ridiculous partying can be heard through the windows and kept me up all night. Can’t help being in the red light district but I would not go back.

Workers very friendly (except one impatient guy who became unfriendly because I asked many times to repeat what he said, because he talks English so quickly while he noticed that my English was no so good, there was noise and people can be very tired when they arrive after a long trip). One of them ordered for us a pizza because they had a problem with the oven. - The living is really good, and has all you need. You have enough for breakfast. - Bed is ok. - You can lock the bathroom for yourself if you want.
The water often doesn't go away in toilets. - The area where the hostel is located is really, really bad. You see no woman alone. I would give more than 6,7/10 but booking.com doesn't allow you to choose the final mark. Too bad.

The hostel itself is quite good: it's pretty clean and the staff is nice. My main problem was the location, despite being walking distance to the main attractions, I didn't have a good feeling exiting the hostel (staying inside was good, I felt safe). Being a female and solo traveling, it was pretty scary for me to walk around in the evening (and I have to say, sometimes also during daytime).

Overall awesome hostel! We were a bit worried about all the reviews about the location but it wasn’t too bad. The hostel has great security and the people in the red light district are doing their own thing so don’t pay much attention to others. Note there were drugs, and lots of men roaming the streets but I felt safe amongst it all. The staff was outstanding and helpful! The room was lovely with a beautiful view. Bathrooms were kept clean and the showers were a plus!

It is quite near rom the central station.
It is ,located in the Red light area and therefore even in the fifth floor it is still possible to listen the noise streets of the surround area.

The most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on in a hostel! If you can, get a private room. We stayed in a private with our own bathroom and it was so worth it. It is in the Red Light Distrtict but the hostel is upfront about it. Great location if you need access to the train station. The first night we slept fine, but the second night (Saturday) things got a little loud so just prepare for that. I would stay again.

The room was big and the kitchen facility was complete enough. The staff was friendly (Fabian)
The location is not comfortable especially for family with young children and outside property looks unsafe on the night time

I loved this hostel. There was such a great atmosphere! A bar with foosball and a pool table, and nice rooms. My complaint is that the staff wasn’t very friendly and the neighborhood is SO BAD. If you’re willing to walk through crowds of creepy men going to strip clubs and homeless people, I highly recommend.

staff guys. free pancakes (blinchiki), happy hour beer and backyard
This central hood was near from bus and train station, kinda interesting but its like ghetto with these drug dealers, pushers, tranny, drunk and addicted people at midnight , I'm OK, its easy to hanging around for me, but this corner not for everyone...spooky) and btw, why do I need to remove bedclothes?

Really great place, the facilities are perfectly cleaned, there is always free tea and coffee in the commo room. The staff was nice. Some people are complaining about the red district but you don't even hear the noise when you're inside and the people around just let you be. I was a 19-year-old girl alone, I arrived pretty late and had no issue whatsoever.
