our young and fun crew welcomes you.

Welcome to the Five Elements Hostel.

In summer 2008 we opened this stylish, quality hostel in a beautiful turn-of-the-century building, so everything is still new and, of course, as clean as you expect from a German hostel. But we're definitely more friendly and funny than the cliché.

Our mission perfectly described in a guest rating we received a while ago:
'Clean, new facilities with awesome staff. Best mix I've found of large hostel amenities and small hostel charm' guest rating Aug. 2009.

Our hostel is centrally located right between the main train station (3min walk) and the city centre (10min walk). This is right in the heart of the Red Light District. It is not dangerous at all and the hostel has a high security standard, but please if you think you could feel offended or insecure book your stay elsewhere.

If you need more information about this, just contact us directly and we will do our best to give you all the information you need.

We have all the free stuff you could want: free Wi-Fi and laptop rental, free bedlinen, free lockers, free luggage storage, free DVD rental, free city maps, free activities and a free BBQ area!

Also this - all for you: every Monday and Friday is a free night walk; every Tuesday is free pasta night; every Wednesday is a Fifa tournament; every Thursday is a free pub crawl; every Saturday is quiz night and every Sunday is movie night, with free popcorn! Activities might change - there's daily updates directly in the hostel.

Special Offers (subject to availability):
Wait out for our last-minute deal-every bed just €18.50, three days before arrival. Stay three or more nights and get breakfast for free! Stay a whole week, but pay 6 nights only (for this offer you need to contact us after booking).

All questions answered?
Then book right here!

Please note that we only accept guests between the age of 18 and 45.
Prices are per person per night.
