Traveled with a friend and we had a very spacious and clean room with our own bathroom. The 5 euro breakfast was delicious and definitely worth it to us. It's about a 3 block walk to the subway station/train station. The center of town was just a few stops away. So you won't be right in the middle of Munich, but it's easy to get there as long as you don't mind taking the time. As long as that doesn't bother you this is a good place to stay.
The security is very poor. They have a lock box to put your key in (this is optional), but they only give one key for the whole room. There were four of us so we had to keep it in a lock box outside of the building, that anyone (ANYONE) could break in to. And the com for it was also left as 211 when we arrived, so anyone could walk by, write it down, and then check back later.
Lovely hostel. The staff was really nice and attentive, the room was very cute with a beautiful decoration, and the breakfast was also good.
BE CAREFUL!! We booked this place 4 months in advance and paid the deposit. In the hotels fine print it says (in poor English) stays of 3 or more nights need to be paid upfront, but we didnt have sufficient funds in our account at the time so they cancelled our booking but NO ONE TOLD US IT WAS CANCELLED. So we arrive and they tell us its cancelled. It made for a very stressful situation- weve never had this problem in any other hostel. Stayed one night-was ok but too much stress. not impressed.
This hotel was an absolute gem! don't be put off by the slightly dodgy street it's on and the dark entrance. Our room was just lovely! It was dead quiet at night, very comfy and clean. We were massively impressed. It is an easy walk into town from the hotel and it didn't even feel unsafe walking back late at night. I can't recommend it enough. When we inevitably go back to Munich we will be staying here!
