The room was such a mess, even if I was in a female room. A possible reason might be Oktoberfest. There were no locks in the place to store personal luggage. You should bring your own lock for that. But the girls in the same room were very friendly, and the atmosphere of the hostel was better than its cleanness.


The location was perfect, 5 minutes walking from the Festwiese (Oktoberfest). The room seems pretty new, with new and good furniture. There is a big lobby and a big restaurant downstairs, and also a Dirndl shop. The staff is okay, they have security staff at the door during the night. The toilet was not good, as the door was broken (we couldn't close it), and the showerdrain was clogged, what caused some "floods". The room was fairly clean and the bunk beds were very good.

Booked during Oktoberfest. Perfect location, only 2 blocks away. Also near the subway. Rooms were relatively large and spacious with lockers under the bed and solid bed frames that didn't shake. Cleanliness throughout the hostel was very good, however they need to do some work in the bathrooms. Shower drain barely worked and the bottom of the curtain was covered in mold. Additionally, this is not a hostel to use if you are looking for a social scene. Everyone keeps to themselves.


I was here for Oktoberfest. Two blocks away, can you get much better than that? All in all it was a fine place to stay. My only complaint is the hot water. Or the lack thereof. As a hostel/hotel, you should be able to provide the hot water needed for showers. By 9:00AM there was no hot water. And I was severely hungover from Oktoberfest, so I was looking forward to that! But this was during Oktoberfest, so take that as it is. The staff was very friendly, however!


well WC need need to fix get the handyman.


Nice staff, great location, affordable pricing.


Good clean hostel. Good location - right near a metro. Nice bar in the hostel too. TINYYYY kitchen though - smaller than my kitchen at home, and this is for a 5-6 storey hotel/hostel!! Get in early if you want to be able to move. Would stay here again though.


Comfortable stay, good location and friendly, helpful staff!


Good value. Parking on the streets is free from 11pm to 9am.


Overall the hostel was meh. The Internet on the other hand was absolutely terrible. Worst internet I have seen so far while travelling.


Hostel was clean and definitely felt safe. Only concern is in the summer the room gets extremely hot and access to a fan would have been great.

Hostel was ok, the room was clean and we slept very well in comfortable beds. :)


A RED WORM WAS FOUND ON MY BED! The staff was told, and she did nothing but only said the housekeeping will take care of it. Like it is a really common thing is this hostel. The drain in the shower room is poor. The location is really far from train station by walk or by metro (have to change train). It's also quite far from the old city center. The luggage storage room is also dirty that we found spoiled food inside the room.


Tiny kitchen. Also, the beds could really do with individual reading lights so that the main light can be turned off. Also, providing soap in the bathrooms would be much appreciated!


Communal kitchen was filthy. One fridge for the entire hostel is a joke. So small that only a few people could cook in there at once. Pretty much a pointless kitchen. Hair all over the bathroom even after it was cleaned. The floor in our room was so dirty, it has not been swept or vacuumed in ages, really bad. Good bar, friendly staff, bad pizza.

Definitely the worst hostel we stayed in. Located around 20 minutes walk to the centre of Munich, very close to a deprived area. Hostel atmosphere was definitely lacking. Although I say this, the hostel rooms were huge with the beds and bathrooms of a good standard. I think the hostel is ideal if you are a lone traveller looking for somewhere to chill out!


if yoy use public transport location is nice but if yoy walk everywhere like me, location is away from the city center. they have nice big rooms amd lockers. staffs are super friendly.


Good place for a nice sleep. 5 mins walk from the city centre. More like a hotel feel.


very clean room, nice showers and bathrooms, the staff are friendily and helpfull, the location is so good, right neart the U Bahn station "Goethenplatz", and theres a excelent bar in the hostel. Would back again for sure


The hostel is really nice, it can almost be considered a hotel. The rooms are big and spacious and the beds comfortable. The bathrooms are clean and big and there is even a small room with cabinets inside the room to leave stuff. The hostel is a bit far from the Centre but it is not a huge distance so we walked there everyday. The bar in the reception is nice and was always busy with people so the atmosphere was great.
