Overall, this was a decent hostel. The biggest problem we encountered was the WIFI. They only have free WIFI downstairs in the lobby (which draws a crowd). It is REALLY SLOW and hard to connect to. I wouldn't suggest paying for it either because everyone said that was slow to. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and our room had a balcony. The view wasn't great but it was a nice place to hang out. Good one night stay place.
It's a very good hostel, the room and bathroom are really confortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complain it's about the wi-fi, it's very bad in the lobby area (only part of the hostel that is for free), so you have pay for better internet in your room.
Very Nice area, tram station close, clean. Noisy a little but if u are here to party it is perfect. A pub on the floor i loved it. Parking was full when we came...
Very disappointed in this hostel. Stayed in several hostels throughout Europe and other parts of the world and I would say this was one of the worst. Clean yes. However the staff was very rude and not Accommodating to us at all. Hate giving bad reviews and don't do it often but this was one necessary.
Only hostel we stayed at with no free wifi. Very expensive. We found the staff very rude too.

The staff were rude on arrival. well one in particular. We had to pay for linen on the bed. I have stayed in many hostels and have never had to pay for cleaning, it was ridiculous!! The wifi situation was crazy, you had to pay for it in your room but it was free in lobby. However the lobby was always busy and due to that the connection was awful. The price of the hostel was not worth the stay. The first night we had no towel but the second night one magically appeared on each bed.
nothing special at all, fairly close to the main train station (walking distance) but no atmosphere at all
Was like a sauna inside, staff not friendly to those who did not speak german.
The location is ok, about a mile from train station. Check in was not good, staff did not tell us about amenities or offer bed linnens. We tried to get linens upon our return and they were out for rest of night. Bathrooms were not cleaned daily. Wide range of ages here, mixed dorms may range from 18-50 years old. Very noisy location.
This was my second stay at this hostel. The first stay was okay, but this time I was in the basement room. It was incredibley claustrophobic. There was nowhere to put my things, let alone lock them up. There was also an open window at ground level that anyone could have walked through. The showers were dirty, and one of the sinks was clogged for my entire stay.
Reasonably close to city, rooms grubby and no atmosphere. It's like a large, crappy hotel. Massive queues at reception were common, as staff were always overwhelmed with check-ins, check-outs and general queries. Luggage room a mess and someones bag had been stolen recently. We only stayed for one night, which was fine though.
It wasn't that close to the train station and quite far from Marienplatz. But it was really clean and nice staff.
Ughh what can I say. it is very easy to find although its a 15 min walk from the station. Thats about the only good thing. This place is huge so its pretty dirty and chaotic. Really nice people staying here when I was there. Although alot of families and children it seemed. If I go back to munich I wouldn't stay here unless I had to. Regardless I had a great time in munich and hanging out with people I met at the hostal, So can't really complain.
This was a horrible stay. The reception line was ridiculous at least 20 min wait. Understaffed with a over booked hostel/hotel. Split up our booking so one had to go in a room that was 2 floors off. The rooms where not always cleaned-after everyone else checked out of the room dirty underwear, beer glasses stayed on the floor for 2 , food and garbage would be in hallways and stairwells. A bunch of young kids got wasted at 6pm were all over the hostel dumping beer from balcony. cops had to come.
The hostel is your basic hostel chain kind of place--don't expect any sort of Munich flair or coziness, and it feels like a business rather than a city host. That being said, the place was very secure, and offered a lot to do if you were willing to pay. The rooms felt slightly older and worn down, but ultimately if you need a safe place to stay, A&O is a very safe bet for a few nights (though the place was so hectic and crowded, I wouldn't want it to be any longer than that).
Pretty average place to stay. Too people, too noisy. Not enough staff and staff not helpful and grumpy all the time
There is free wifi only in reception, which is always crowded and wifi is most of the time saturated and not working. Check in was at 15:00 but room was not ready, one hour later it was, but toilet was not clean. Personal at reception very serious and not friendly. Drying machine took my coins without working, money was not returned. Overall a bad experience, not recommended even if this is the last available hostel.

Was not to pleased with this hostel. It is a total party place for extremely young crowd. Facilities were not the cleanest and the bathroom flooded as soon as the shower was turned on. The line for the front desk was extremely long. The included breakfast made it a bit better. Though its not any kind of breakfast food we would eat in the United States. The wifi was terrible! Such a slow connection that it hardly worked when others were on it.
This hostel has grown too big for its britches. It's fine, but there are probably better options. Pros: Staff speaks excellent English Very little noise from hallways Storage lockers in rooms Cons: No activities WiFi extremely unreliable in the evenings Located on a busy street: noise will wake you very early, also far from attractions Breakfast not included (at 10-15 euros, no problem, but at 20?) Almost always a 10-15 minute wait at the reception Noisy groups of schoolchildren
