Good place for a budget stay. Provided a good service during my stay. Simple yet a good selection, breakfast is very good.

It's an alright place, the major downside to this hostel is you are directly in the middle of the red light district. Right outside the main door are two strip clubs, lots of roaches, and the occasional c***k meet-up. Be prepared to ignore lots of drugged up people and people attempting to hustle you. Interestingly, if you walk a block in any direction the city is quite nice! Just be prepared to keep the window shut all night as it is a loud city.

They’re was 2 people working on the reception. A guy and a girl. The guy served me, I’ve been working in restaurants/bars for over 7 years so i know how to treat paying customers, and his attitude wasn’t very good at all when we went through the check in process. Didn’t seem to care for male guests only female guests. On the other hand the girl working there was very nice and attentive. I never leave bad reviews but it wasn’t nice to be treated like that.

The check in process was hassle free. On day 2 I had to be moved to another room (there was something wrong with the one I was in - they didn't say what). They moved my stuff while I was out, which was OK. They reserved a bottom bunk for me, and gave me some breakfast vouchers for the trouble. I was very impressed with this. Good breakfast BTW. For anyone having concerns it is in the Red Light District - there are some dodgy characters around, but I never felt unsafe.

Very good hostel in a lively (red light district!) but safe neighbourhood with friendly personnel, clean rooms and good security. Very good value for money. I am grateful for a relaxed stay!

Nice people and great building. The soap dispenser in the shower was empty and I was overcharged checking in as they believed the person I was chatting with in line was sharing my room. I had paid and then after she offered me two keys I said I was alone. They charged me the extra person rate and I did not realize until reviewing my bill at the airport. They do a good job with environmental care in terms of conservation of water.

Location is one block from the rail station, so really easy to find and easy to reach everywhere. Good double security and good value happy hour. I met a lot of people on the main level, and downstairs by the pool table. My last night they made crepes for everyone. This was my 3rd visit so the location was no surprise, it is what it is. If you do a walking tour you will understand more. It's better than the really distant H.I. Bathrooms are modern and it has a lift.

Beyond and belief it was amazing time if your into meeting new ppl, or making friends, and drinking this is the place despite the sketchy area of the red???? district and neighborhood I felt safe and secure. The staff is absolutely amazing, friendly and very informative for locations and food/bars. The hostel its self co-op bathrooms are always clean and roomy, in dorm lockers (which are really big for any travelers convenience) and free coffee/tea/water.???? Most important prices are great!????

Rooms are nice, bed comfortable and everything is clean, there are big common area with a lot of things to do. The hostel is very big so you can find work traveller but also young people. I really like the evening events and the location, because of the red lights area you may not have a beautiful view but i never felt unsafe

wenn man weiss, das man ein Hostel bucht und die Lage kennt ... ist und war alles Tip top. das Personal ist ausgesprochen zuvorkommend und aufmerksam. da kann sich manches 4Sterne Hotel eine Scheibe von abschneiden. Erstaunlich, aber wahr :)

This was my first time staying in a hostel so I wasn't sure how it'd turn out. Overall was very happy we decided to stay there it's been better than some of the airbnb's I've stayed in while travelling. The only draw back is there is a large amount of homeless people in the neighborhood making it sketchy when going out, but the hostel itself was very safe.

Quartier de la Haupbahn. Très pratique. Quartier chaud mais Hostel bon rapport qualité/prix. Pour un séjour de plusieurs nuits éviter les chambres donnant sur la Moselstraße trop bruyante jusqu'à 4h00...

The hostel was ideal for me. I travelled as a female solo traveller. For me the location was fine although there is some shouting outside during the night. Not too loud for earplugs, though. It's just 100 meters to the S-Bahn entry. Very convenient if you have to catch a flight! (I just stayed one night. )

Wer nach einer günstigen und ansprechenden Unterkunft mitten in Frankfurt sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Lediglich die Lage könnte einige Leute abschrecken. Wer Frankfurt kennt, wird wissen, dass das Bahnhofsviertel in der Nacht nicht wirklich der schönste Ort ist, um sich aufzuhalten. Dafür kann das Hostel jedoch nichts, daher kein Abzug. Sieht man jedoch einmal darüber hinweg, kann das Hostel mit einem guten und günstigen Frühstück mit ziemlich viel Auswahl, geräumigen Zimmern, sauberen Bädern und freundlichem Personal überzeugen.

Yes, the outside is a bit different but no, I did not feel uncomfortable or in danger. Made plenty of friends hanging out at the hostel and enjoyed the location. I ventured by foot to so many great areas. The hostel is a block or so away from the main rail station. My only reservation was the shower water backing up.

Needs more staff, there was an incident of a person urinating at night on the floor in the middle of the 4bed room. Went down, informed, there was one employee downstairs who said he cannot do anything ATM because he was alone and needed to watch the door. I left early for a meeting, came back late and ppl at the reception (which is at the bar) said it has been established that no one urinated. I turned the light on and saw the guy so high, that he was sleep peeing.no apologies, very stressful

I usually don’t leave negative reviews, but wanted to share our experience with other travellers as a precaution. We got bedbugs during our stay here (the first stop on our trip). We reached out to the hostel staff afterwards about it with no response which was disappointing. The cleanliness of our room was questionable. Although they do warn you the location is in the Red Light District, keep in mind this means loud and rambunctious noises at night which made it hard to get a good night’s rest.

I really enjoyed my stay at Five Elements in Frankfurt. Although the area was a bit seedy to walk around, once you by-passed the 3-block radius around the property there were lots of views and historical significance to enjoy. It was also conveniently located near the main train station for easy transportation. I would most likely stay here again if I found myself in Frankfurt.

War wieder während der IAA bei euch, gibt nichts zu beanstanden. Super Zimmer, super nettes Personal. Man kennt einige Gesichter schon über die Jahre. Schade das die Zeit wieder so schnell vorbei war. Hoffe, wir sehen uns bald wieder. Bis dahin eure Nancy

I really liked the hostel, except for the fact that it is in the middle of a creepy area, it is a fun place to be.
