Hostelworld says:

Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt is in a great location just around the corner from the Hauptbahnhof and about 15 minutes' walk from the Alte Oper. This safe and comfortable hostel features free dinners and activities every day and also has an onsite bar open 24/7. Several Hostelworld guests have told us that they'd stay here again, citing the games room with foosball and pool table and the Wi-Fi throughout the building.

There is one tiny downside to our LOCATION: we are located slap bang in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! Anyhow, we don't think that it is that dangerous and the hostel has a HIGH safety standard. However, if you don't feel comfortable staying in this area, feel free to book somewhere else.

If this isn't a problem, you'll discover many upsides to our location:
- 3 mins walk from the train station
- 10 mins walk to the museums/river bank
- 15 mins walk to the city centre (shopping street)
And - we promise - you'll find the best international take-away food just around the corner.

Look out for our LAST MINUTE SPECIALS (each bed 19,- Euro one day before arrival), all you can eat free breakfast and our seasonal specials.

If you have further questions, contact our lovely office team Nicole, Jasmin and Sandra. They are always happy to help you.
See you in a tick!!

  • Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt says

    I'd say our most unique feature is that our staff love the hostel and our guests so much that they end up spending lots of their free time at the hostel! There's always someone you can talk to here. Really, our staff have been called the most friendly staff in Germany. There's free activities every night, plus billiards, a bar and a backyard.
    We're so close to the main station. We've quite close to the Main River, the museums, the botanical gardens and shopping malls. The one local place that I'd definitely recommend is the Äppelwoi pub quarter in Sachsenhausen. It's full of small unique stores, bars and restaurants. We like it so much that we offer a free pub crawl through Sachsenhausen once a week.
    No matter if you come to explore the city and the beautiful area around Frankfurt, or just stop over flying in or out via Germany's biggest airport, we are happy to be your home away from home.

    The hostel is great, good common room which includes a nice bar and becomes breakfast room during morning. Btw free breakfast included in the price is super! Rooms are OK, clean and secure, had shared toilets but no issues with it, a second common room with games and a kitchen was nice, wifi works ok but it doesnt reach the rooms. Located in red light district but I didnt leave at night so didnt have any issues with that. Located very close to hauptbahnhof and easy to reach.
