Not the choice to meet people if your travelling solo, lots of large groups, school trips and families as it's not specifically a backpacker's hostel. Kitchen is also way too small for the size.

This review is a 5 star for sure. I really enjoyed my stay at MEININGER hostel. The location is great, you just stop at Hackerbruecke station, after the central station and walk 3 blocks and you're there. The staff was always very helpful and nice. I don't know if the managers read this, but just one suggestion: Top bunk beds should also have energy outlets (jacks, plugs, whatever you call it).

The lift needs to be improved. Very slow

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there, thank you very much for staying with us and taking the time to write this review. We're always trying to improve our lift but unfortunately we only get it slightly faster. But I can guarantee you we're working on a solution. It would be great to welcome you back again at a MEININGER Hotel in the near future :) Best wishes, Alex

Nice bar on the first floor. Wouldn't recommend it for solo travelers cause it's a big hostel kinda hard to meet people. But if you do end up here and want to make friends sign up for the pub crawl.

The hostel was about 15 to 20 min walk to the centre of town, but had good connections to public transport. This is more of a hotel so dont expect much of a social atmosphere. The toilets also smelt badly the whole time we were there.

Hi there, thank you very much for staying with us and for taking the time to write this review. We're sorry to hear you're stay wasn't to your complete satisfaction. We have a bar that opens everyday at 8pm where one can meet fellow travellers. We're also sorry to hear that the toilets smelt badly. Please be assured that we will look into that. We hope to welcome you again soon in one of the 16 MEININGER Hotels all around Europe. Cheers Alex

This place was okay. Atmosphere was not very good as it is a hotel rather than a hostel. Public transport easily accessible, 5 mins into city centre on the train.

The hostel is in the perfect location for Oktoberfest but is a short tram ride away from the downtown tourist sites. The rooms were clean and had lockers to secure valuables. There was not much going on in terms of atmosphere and our room was facing a main street so it was very noisy.

don't come here if you are looking to meet people. Atmosphere was bad as there are too many rooms and a bad common area which was pretty much just a hotel lobby.

The hostel would definitely improve just by adding lockers for each bed in the rooms.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there, thanks a lot for your review. Your suggestion with lockers for each bed is already reality in most of our rooms. For the others we definitely will keep it in mind for the next renovations. Best wishes, Alex

Stayed here for Oktoberfest. Cannot bear the location, 10 minutes from bus/train station and 10 minutes to Oktoberfest. It was ridiculously expensive! I mean €250+ for 3 nights. Staff were ok, atmosphere was pretty average. Only met people in my room. Very good facilities including computers.

Hi there, thanks a lot for staying with us and taking the time to write this review. As you can imagine prices go up a lot during Oktoberfest in Munich. We hope you enjoyed Oktoberfest anyways and would like to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes, Alex

Please give a restyling to the luggage room downstairs, because it appears dark, dirty and unsafe.

I arrived and the lady on reception told me that they had cancelled my reservation. She said that they ask for full payment and had contracted me but received no reply. I've had a look through my email and there was no contact.It is however possible that it ended up in junk mail, but there certainly wasn't a concerted effort to contact me. I actually read that they wanted full payments so emailed them a couple of weeks before I arrived but it was cowardly igmored. I was left to walk the streets.

We arrived at this hostel and they had cancelled pur booking and would not refund our deposit. As it turned out it was the best thing that could have happened to us - the hostel was unclean and drunk people were loittering everywhere. We were able to book a 4.5 star motel close by for significantly less then the cost of a private twin room at the hostel.
