  • The hostel was nothing to fancy. But it wasn't horrible either. Honestly I hoped for more like maybe someone tending the bar they had in a small lounge but there was none to be told.

  • There was a mess up with beds where the cleaner remover people's stuff and made the beds new again, while leaving the dirty vacant beds alone causing confusion and chaos late at night when everyone went back to the room

  • Great facilities and really good staff and cleanliness! I just thought it was a little bit far away of downtown and main touristic places.

  • Meininger was a very clean and comfortable hostel, and it was affordable at 15 Euro a night. My room, a shared dorm, and the other rooms were all nicely kept. The reception is 24 hours and very helpful. My only thing is that although it's listed as being in the city center it's actually about a 30 minute walk to the Cathedral. So it's more central-ish. But the tram is a 3 min walk from the hostel and takes you right there so it is still a pretty good location.

  • The staff was exceptional and very helpful The room was a bit too small to accommodate five people.Especially the part where it only had one power socket.

  • It was very comfortable, it is close to all the nightlife, within walking distance of the most crowded places, we didnt have to use public transport. We stayed in a 8 people mixed dorm an we got to know a few people.

  • The room was spacious, nicely decorated and equipped. It got very warm while we stayed, so we had to open the "emergency exit" door on to the balcony which frankly i feel should be open to the guests as long as they keep quiet. i know we weren't the only guests to do this with the window being blocked by a bed. Shower is great, wifi was not so great. receptionist nearly overcharged us however she did fix this and was pleasant. Kitchen is very poorly equipped! over all good value for money!
