Great hostel but the kitchen is too small for such a big place.

Our room was spacious and well laid out, and the en suite bathroom and shower attached were new and clean. The breakfast was a bit pricey for what you got, but not bad by any means. The pool table and bar downstairs are a nice touch and were a good way to meet people! The kitchen is absolutely tiny and lacks enough cutlery or basic kitchen staples (e.g. olive oil), so if you plan to cook, beware. Good location and the brewery across the street is really nice!

Hi! Thanks for your great comment! Concerning the guest kitchen we clean it twice a day and make sure there is enough cutlery and plates. But sometimes there are so many guests using it that it's still not enough. If that is the case you can always come down to reception and we'll be happy to provide you with more ;) See you next time you're in Munich, Alex

DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOSTEL I tried to cancel my reservation 5 days before I was due to turn up, and I was told that you can only cancel your booking a minimum of 21 days before your booking dates. So I had to pay the full 210euro, This completely removes the flexibility of back packing. They then had the dignity to ask me if I would not turn up so they can re-rent the rooms, but reminded me I still have to pay. I have never been so annoyed with a hostel before. AGAIN DO NOT STAY HERE

Hi there, we're sorry to hear you're unhappy with our hotel. But during certain special dates like New Years Eve we have special cancellation conditions which are stated on hostelworld as well as on our homepage. Usually you can cancel until one day before arrival, but as said before, not during special dates (Oktoberfest, ISPO, New Years Eve etc.). We hope you still enjoy your holiday. Safe travels, Alex

The facilities were excellent but we found the toilet dirty when we arrived.

The first two out of three night, my friend and I were upgraded to a private two bed room, so that was very nice!

Friendly staff and good bathrooms. Be prepared to walk long distances if you don't want to catch the tram around

Awesome hotel staff. Its a bit out of the way, but it's located next to an amazing beer hall. Rooms are quite cheap and include all the basic essential facilities.

Hi! Thanks for your great review and the compliments about our staff! With the public transportation you're in the city center in no time and a little walk there isn't that bad neither. :) Hope to welcome you back here sometime in the future! Cheers, Alex

we slept in a double room that was really expensive and basic in relation to the price we paid. it was christmas period but the price was really too high. Anyway the hostel is 10 minutes walk far from the center and it has a private parking that was really useful!

Free Wifi, excellent place for dinner right across the street and bar downstairs. Rooms all had tvs and were quite warm (very welcome as it was freezing outside). Biggest downside was a decided lack of outlets but other than that no complaints! Perfect if you aren't planning on staying in Munich long and need quick access to the train station or are just here for Oktoberfest. If you're looking to spend a lot of time in the historic area this is more of a walk.

Dear Corinna, Thank you very much for your honest and great feedback. It´s good to hear from you that you enjoyed staying with us. Hope to welcome you in munich again. Kind regards Alex

We stayed in the largest dorm they had so thats probably why it wasn't that clean. They bathrooms smelled kinda funky and them rooms were kinda dirty. Not the best hostel, but not the worst. Wifi only worked in part of our room so you had to go sit on the floor our in the hall to get internet. I would probably stay here gain, but in a smaller room.

The hostel was conveniently located near the train station, but it was a little further from the city center. We booked a room in a 12 bed dorm to find out that it was actually split into two separate rooms with an adjoining door which was a nice surprise. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

Stayed in a 8- bed dorm which was divided into two rooms which is good if you want to sleep. The beds were comfortable and bathroom facilities ha no faults. Not really a great party place but the downstairs bar had some great happy hours and free pool. Right opposite beer-hall so great if you want a close stumble. Just a few trams stops off the main station. Overall pretty good place.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We're glad you had a comfortable stay here and want to appologize that the bathroom wasn't cleaned to your satisfaction. We already talked to our cleaning staff about it and they will keep a closer eye on it. Hope to welcome you back next time you're in Munich. Safe travels, Alex

We were in Meininger City hotel on November 18th and 19th, 2013. We were five and stayed there only one night. We asked for a 5 bed room with private bathroom and we had a six-bed room which was wide and absolutely clean and warm. We had a wonderful night because the hotel wasn't noisy at all and it costed only 15 euros for each of us. Everybody was so kind with us and the position is excellent, close enough to the city center. Recommended.

The 8 bed dorm was nice. It was split in half by a connecting door so it almost seemed like a 4 bed dorm. The free WiFi was nice but signing back in constantly was a small annoyance. The train station was about a 10 minute walk and the restaurant across the street was amazing. The only negative is that this "hostel" is actually a hotel. So you don't get that community vibe, just a place to rest your head really.

Hi, thanks for your review! Great ways to meet fellow travellers in our hotel are for example our guest kitchen and the bar. After a beer or two with someone from the other end of the world, you'll probably find yourself playing pool and afterwards chatting the night away in the lobby :) Happens to the best of us :) Safe travels, Alex
