My husband and I stayed for one night between visiting friends in Switzerland and flying out of Frankfurt airport. Staff was great, laundry service was really helpful (5 EUR per load, they give you a laundry bag to fill). We stayed in a double room with ensuite. Really clean and a nice bathroom. Dinner and breakfast were good (spaghetti with... More

Stayed here in a private room for three nights because of its price and location. As mentioned by other reviews here, the accommodation is pretty basic. The hostel is in a old building so it has a "old and dated" feel. The lift is small and can only handle a couple of people at a time so you have to... More

Stayed in a 8-bed dorm for 1 night. All males. One guy seems to be living in that room because all his stuff was everywhere. He kept his food outside the window to stay cold since there is no fridge for guest use. He looked like a veteran. If not because I couldn't find anything else inexpensive, next to the... More

I stayed in a mixed from with roughly 9 other people. Beds are bunk beds and you are randomly assigned one. There are wooden lockers beside the beds which you can rent for two euros per stay plus a ten euro deposit. I had no problems with the lockers they were relatively large (could fit two backpacks in) and sturdy.... More

Stayed here for one night. The room was very basic. The bed frames and furniture seemed very flimsy. They might want to put a bit more money into updating the furniture it just looked old and tatty. The receptionist guy was friendly and the breakfast was nice. Location was definitely the best part of the hotel. If you are looking... More

Just outside Frankfurt Hbf Main Train Station, this place ideal for visitors on a short visit. The rooms are basic, clean, safe and quiet. They serve some basic breakfast and dinner too. Staff are friendly. Only minus point is you have to climb up 3 floors to reach reception, the lift never seemed working. But room allocated to me was... More

We were a party of 3 female travellers. The first night we stayed in a 4 bed room, the other 2 nights in a 3 bed room. The rooms are fairly average, nothing fancy, but you get what you pay for. The location was good, but a little too noisy at night.

The international beat in the reception/bar is fantastic. you meet all ages from all over the world. It does not look very much on the outside,... More

the hostel is basic, but very central to all places, No air-con, etc, but my experience was great, meeting all young travelers from the world over, the location is very good, just opposite the main station. There are several restaurants & pubs within walking distance of the place.
