My only complaint is the moldy bathrooms and broken Internet.
Great spot with lots of room in our bedroom and bathroom. Close to station and to things to see by 10-15 minute walk. Would stay there again.
The hostel is very good, even if you take a dorm here, its fantastic with no disturbance from outside. The linens provided are very clean and you will be happy to see the cleanliness of room as well as bathroom. Hauptbahnhof is at a 8-10 minutes walking distance from here. I had booked a female dorm for 3 days in this hostel, but later made it to 4 days but for that I had to pay 4euros extra for the last day. All in all a very nice place to stay in Munich.

Definitely not worth the price. It has a good location and alright sized rooms but that is about it. Our room was quite dirty and had one bathroom which was not amazing. We had to pay over 27 euros each and it was definitely not worth that.
One girl at the reception didn't speak German and a very approximate English. The bartender took 10 minutes to get my order. Internet costs extra (cheap though) but works rather not so well. Room was clean, beer was cheap and good. Wouldn't really want to go back there though. Munich has better hostels than this.
They charge.you for Wi-Fi, is ridiculous!!! I booked this hostel because there was.flooding in Germany and I can't go to the place and.forced to stay in Munich, this is the only hostel have empty space in Munich that's why we booked them. However it is ridiculous poor quality The staff gave us a bed that booked by others. Only 2plugs in a 6mixed doom Toilet.was clean
Don't go there if u expect to have WiFi. They charge u for it but the signal is so weak that u ar very hard to connect. When u talk about this with reception they just said there is nothing they can do but the would be willing to give u back money . Of course in order to shut u up
My friend's bed had bed bugs. And the matresses and pillows were very dirty.
We were very dissapointed with our stay here. When we arrived, the desk staff were rude, and unhelpful. The lockers to store our stuff were only big enought for valuables, so we weren't able to lock our bags and had to leave them in the open of the room. The room was stuffy and smelled terrible, although it looked relatively clean. Additionally, we paid for a wifi connection, which did not work correctly or was super slow.

The 6 bedroom rooms were a nice size with a table to key out all of your purchase or other things you gathered from the day. Only complaint is that the wifi was not included, but at least you were able to get the wifi access in your room if you wanted to pay for it. The hostel was right near a U-Bahn if you needed it, and not far from the train station, but about a 15-20 min walk to the city center. The lockers were small and could only fit my backpack. But, overall, a nice place.
Great location to see munich. Right next to a metro. McDonald's next to it was good for breakfast. Staff were helpful but sometimes a bit lazy around the bar area. Comfy beds. Kitchen was the filthiest I've ever seen. Showers were cold the first 2 days. Shower flooded. Laundry room not working for 3 days. Good place to stay if the kitchen was tidy. Staff knew there stuff
We stayed only one night in 6 bed female room. The room was nice, big enough, with own bathroom and shower. On the 2. floor there´s also a very small kitchen, if you need to cook something. The bar/lounge downstairs was very spacious,clean and nice and seeemed to be a good place to meet other travellers. No free Wi-fi - you have to pay for it! There are also PCs, if you don´t own a smartphone;) But in upper rooms the wi-fi doesn´t work well.
u have to buy breakfast and towels but there is wifi in the room and a bathroom in the 6 bed female dorm so its good
A really great hostel. The staff is helpful and fun. The bar near the reception is definitely the place to be to make new friends. They are great deals on beer everynight. The con are poor wifi connection in somes rooms and the fact that your always trying to reconnect and they also had a problem with the heat for the showers.
VERY nice hostel. We stayed on the 5th floor which was recently renovated. Had a clean, large, private room, private bathroom and shower. Downstairs lounge/bar was spacious and clean, free wifi and breakfast included! Has everything the young traveler needs. Only problem was at one point, an employee came in without knocking to empty our garbage cans and walked in on my boyfriend sitting on the toilet! Otherwise great.
Well it is the first hostel i have ever seen who sells wifi. This is really ridiculus. Having a free wifi is one of the criteria one looks for first when booking a hostel. Mine was out of choice. I was in a rush thats why i did not checked. Anyway, i have seen hostels whose internet connection was not that good, or usable only in kitchen or somehow but i didnot see a hostel selling wifi. Plus the kitchen is quite dirty dirty dirty... And everything is expensive coffees and things....

Not easily walked to from the HBF but the tram and undergrounds serve it, and it is 15 min walk from Marienplatz. Luggage drop off before check in is in a shed out back, but they let you keep valuables behind the desk. Dorm was big and spacious, bar downstairs was nice as well. Breakfast was okay. Lockers in the room, you provide the lock. En suite bathroom had toilet and shower in one room, so if someone was in shower using the loo was awkward, as opposed to having them in separate rooms.
Good hostel. Not blow your mind amazing, but it had everything I needed.
Good hostel, ok location...a bit a ways from the center but I like to walk. The internet was annoying because you had to constantly reenter your internet code, password and then scroll down to accept and then press enter a bunch of times and then it will work if it doesn't time out immediately and you keep redoing it. Also the kitchen left a lot to be desired as the cookware and utensils were really lacking; also the burner was week. Otherwise, good large spaces in the rooms with small locker.
It was an okay hostel. There are no lockers in the room and the doors slammed when it closed so we were woken up a lot during the evening even with wearing ear plugs. Overall the hostel was average nothing worth recommending to people traveling to munich
