Comfortable Youth Hostel, very nice apartments, great atmosphere. Unfortunately the city area is "problematic" but in a few minutes walk you can get to nicer ones.

Great hostel, convenient location, friendly staff, very clean, even the bathrooms, nice atmosphere. Great deal. It's located in Frankfurt's red light district (which is no safety issue), but I was informed about this fact in advance including the offer to cancel my reservation (I did not cancel!). Fair thing!

Except the fact that the hostel is in the middle of the red district, everything was good.

Overall is great! Yep it's right in the red light District but it is not that horrible. Safe here. Even can hung out after 00:00. The room is just ok but the public place is awesome with great breakfast and entertainment. The host is nice! Score: 8/10

Even though it is in the middle of the red light district still i would say it has a perfect location, you are located a block away from the main station and many touristic places are just a couple of blocks away.

Security getting into the hotel was fantastic which is good for being located in red light district (should not let this stop you from staying there; you don't have to get involved if you don't want to) close to city centre and very fantastic staff!

it was easy to find from the Hbf. I thought the staff was very friendly. They do provide towel (5€ deposit but you get it back). They have a game room in the basement floor. The breakfast looked decent, it's 4€ if you want to eat. The 3rd floor bathroom I stayed on was a little dirtier than the 4th floor I went to - the shower on the 3rd was occupied. Overall, great place!

Thanks for the rating, we are happy you enjoyed staying with us. Sorry for the one "little" dirtier bathroom, we try to keep them clean and nice for everyone, sometimes there is just too much traffic. Happy travels!

More like a hotel than hostel, truly excellent. Free pasta night was amazing and far exceeded my expectations. Location is excellent for getting around the city, we had no security concerns. Highly recommend this place to anyone!

Thanks so such for the nice rating. Though we seem to be a little hotel-like during trade fair time, we are still a hostel and we love it. Happy travels ;-)

It was so clean. Rooms and common area was totally seperated, so it was quiet at night. Breakfast was served in the morning. Very well maintained. Right in front of the station. conve ient to catch the bus. Not dangerous nor sketchy at all. Highly recommend! Thank u for your service.

One of the better hostels I've been to! The staff is really nice, the atmosphere is great and everything is clean and organized. Only problem is the location - the hostel is in the middle of the red light district of Frankfurt. A lot of drug addicts and homeless people walking around which made me a little uncomfortable, but the security in the hostel is great so nothing happens. Also it's very close to the central station and that helped me a lot.

Thanks for the nice rating. Yeah, the people around might be not so nice to look at, but have you figured out as well that the area is one of the most upcoming in Frankfurt? Lot's of new clubs and shops are opening and there's a lot to explore. Maybe you'll come back some time, then we are happy to show you. Happy travels!

The kitchen was really dirty. Tried to use a few dishes/ pans/ pots/ woks but covered in the last persons mess. I don't think guests should have to clean the kitchen to be able to use it. Also glass in girls shower is see through and only shower curtains. A bit awkward. Rooms large and clean. Modern hostel. Really moody, unfriendly girl at reception. Get a new job. Red light district is no issue. Security is awesome. Got a great deal on private room for a night.
