I was only in Germany to visit the Dachau and learn more about German history but the two days I was there was the most magnificent two days ever, I arrived pretty early to the hostel but being able to put my luggage and grab something and just hang out was so lovely. The staff was more than helpful! The tram was very close and the city centre was only a 20 minute walk. It does not feel like a hostel at all. Honestly, I fell in love with Germany this weekend, all thanks to the Meininger :)

We came over during the peak period with lots of school children. Very noisy even after the quiet down period.

the room itself was nice and spacious but no upper bunk wall plug ins. i stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and one night they overbooked our room which resulted in a 5th guy coming into our room 3 times around 4:30 am confused and woke us up every time. depending on who you get at the desk they're either really friendly or really unhelpful kitchen was poorly taken care of with very few amenities like no paper towel or olive oil however, walk is decent to main square and room with a view is lovely

The hostel is about 15 mins walk from the Main railway station, 5 mins walk to the local station. The staffs are pleasant. The facilities are as expected for the price quoted. Though the kitchen is a bit small for the whole hostel.

Good to stay if arrived by bus... But need 15 min to walk to railway station and half an hour to the city centre. Others ar good!

My review might not be helpful as the hostel was under construction during my stay. Hopefully it will improve. Rooms were clean and staff was great, but there was only one elevator that held 4 people at most and only one washer and dryer for the entire hostel, so do laundry early or expect to wait a few hours. Some rooms have better wifi connection than others. Decent experience nonetheless, nothing terrible.

Really great location close to the main train station. Quite clean and spacious.

The location is so convenient to the central station one stop only by taking train or by tram no. 19 . Six-person room is spacious. Each guest has their own big drawer at the bottom of the bed. Thanks to staff for their friendliness and smiling face. I will come back to stay again at my last stop of journey towards my home town, Hong Kong.

I enjoyed my stay at the Meininger, but there are a lot of families who stay there, so for solo travellers, it does affect the atmosphere in my opinion. The bar, game rooms and staff I encountered were all awesome. Breakfast was quite expensive for what you get. The rooms were slightly dirty in my opinion. On the bunk beds, if you'll on the edge of the bed against the wall, it is covered in dust. That's me being very picky.

Washrooms were always wet, shower doors leaked. Common area downstairs was nice though and the breakfasts were AMAZING.

The shower doors leak horribly! The bathroom floor was wet all the time. Many families were staying here with young kids, which affected our stay a little bit. We were drinking and playing pool, we had money on the table for next game already and some young teens came in and took next game somehow, slightly uncomfortable. Overall it wasn't a bad place, I think we would stay somewhere else next time however.

Not a super location but only a five minute walk from the S-Bahn and two stops to Marienplatz and the historic center. Public transport in Munich is so comprehensive that not being in the center is not an issue. Some good low-key bars and restaurants are near the hotel. Bar and game room are a great place to meet people and connect with your roommates. Fresh towel every day. En suite shower and bath. I was very pleased with my stay. I will definitely come back when I'm in Munich again.

Our stay at Meininger Hostel in Munich was excellent. The staff were most welcoming, very friendly, and helpful...especially Pia. The facilities boasted an artsy modern feel. But the city itself holds a lot of history. Clean facilities with hotel-like amenities (ie. handsoap, towels, blow dryer) Would highly recommend to fellow travelers. Cheers!

Very spacious bunks, and great bathrooms. Liked having a kitchen even though it wasn't very well equipped, it had all the necessities. Staff were friendly. We missed our flight in the evening, and flew in the next morning and they held our beds for us so that we could checkin the next morning as soon as we arrived!

Staff was exceedingly patient with my numerous queries and many times went the extra mile to suggest places i could visit or things i could do in Munich. I really appreciate their recommendations! The Augustiner Beer Hall just opposite the Hotel is worth a visit too, i think the Hotel could play up the fact that one of Munich's biggest beer halls(?) is located just opposite them. Could also consider selling alcohol at the counter (normal procedure for most of the day, until the evening).

Hi there, thanks a lot for your nice review. We will pass the compliments on to our staff. We do sell alcohol at night as well but only in the bar and not at the reception anymore. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Alex

WAY TOO TIGHT WITH THEIR LITTLE RULES ON EVERTHING. WAS NOT ALLOWED TO OPEN DOOR IN THE ROOM AND WAS NOT ABLE TO OPEN DE WINDOWS MORE THEN A LITTLE BIT. UNSATIFIED WITH ALL THE LITTLE RULES THEY MADE. THIS BESIDE THE FACT I GAVE THEM A "GOOD" RATING.

Hi there, thanks a lot for your review. We're sorry you didn't like our little rules. They are there for the safety of our guests (eg. the door in the room you're not allowed to open is an emergency exit). We hope you enjoyed your stay in Munich anyways. Best wishes, Alex

I liked it there. If they manage to fix the windows so it's possible to close them and you don't hear absolutely everything that is going on in the streets. The beds were decent and they clean well everyday. The thing I liked the least was the breakfast (poor and expensive). My stay was alright anyway, I would repeat if the price was a bit lower.

Very spacious room, with very clean and well sized bathroom and shower. Close to the train station, so it was easy to do day trips to surrounding areas. Only 1 stop away from the main station in Munich. Pretzels were 1 euro (not free)

Nice place, but pretty big, so hard to have a good atmosphere, but would recommend! A good walk from the center, but close to the train station!
