  • It is so close to the main train station! the room is spacious.. Deff one of the best hostel experiences I've had :) the only downside is that there is only one shower in one floor but i didnt have any problem much with that. The place is clean and free breakfast!! Some of the staffs could be nicer though!... Overall great experience!

  • The hostel was hot and loud. We tried to cancel our reservation after our first night because we were miserable. I tried to enjoy a beer and talk with some fellow travellers but the main room was so hot I couldn't stay down for more than an hour. The location is proximal to the main station. If you're traveling in the dead of summer, you might want to spend the extra €20 a night and get a hotel room across the street.

  • Great staff! Super friendly and helpful. I came back a week later and they remembered me. It was great having a bar in the lobby. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. It can get a little noisy at night.

  • A+ overall, everything you'd expect from a german hostel. Someone was always mopping something with bleach and/or soap. This really IS in the HEART of the red light district. You will walk past at least two brothels to get here in any direction, but it's very safe if slightly seedy. Inside the hostel is gleaming, double set of buzz-in doors manned day and night by it looks like two people at all times. There's an elevator and it's air conditioned. What more can you ask for? Huge luggage lockers

  • The location of hostel is so closed to the Frankfurt train main station. It is conveniently to travel to the city centre by tram, train or bus! There is no hair dryer provided but rooms and places are clean and nice. Free Wifi can access in public share place and rooms!

  • This hostel is great. The bar and common area is very laid back and welcoming. There are 1 or 2 nights a week where they provide complimentary dinner. The staff is very friendly and there is a lot to do within walking distance of the hostel. Plus Eva is beautiful

  • This is by far the best hostel I have stayed at. First of all, breakfast and check out is at noon. The breakfast is the best compared to other hostels and they have THE BEST tomatoes as well as free coffee and tea all day. The staff is super friendly, they remember your name and they take the time to get to know you which is really nice. They have a happy hour and the drinks are cheaper and better compared to any other bar. Everything was great, but don't go run at 8 am around the redlight dist

  • Really good place. The red light district is not so bad but it gets pretty loud at night. Make sure to close the windows. The facilities are more like a 5 star hotel: everything is new, trendy, and clean. However, I feel the showers were incorrectly installed as there is always water all around and there's no real way to get rid of it, so the floors are always wet. The staff was very friendly though, they even let me take a shower after I checked out and wanted to go for a run.
