I'm not one to complain or even take the time to do reviews but to save you the trouble there are so many better places to stay. Staff never there and not helpful. Showers do not drain. Hotel under construction for the last two years. Wifi is expensive. Breakfast overrated. Poor tv placement in the bar. Deposit for everything (spoon,bowl,pot or pan, pool stick, fusball ball) don't stay here
You have to pay for wifi here which is always a bummer, don't lose your code, you'll need it again. The bar has awesome happy hour specials and the people around are really friendly. We arrived really early in the morning and they let us hang out and get ready in one of the washrooms. It is a bit of a walk to the city center but not to far. The directions say 1000m down, remember thats actually pretty far! Met some lovely people here and had an awesome time.
This hostel is ok if all you needed was a roof over your head. For how expensive a basic bed was, there wasn't much value provided. The price advertised when booking was not the true cost for the days we booked. Everything felt very old and the beds weren't comfortable. The windows don't open enough to cool the room off at night. No sound proofing between bathroom and bedroom. Wifi only in the lobby. Everything is an extra cost: wifi, towels, locks etc.
Hostel is ok in general. Nothing out of the normal or special. The only annoying thing is that you need to pay extra for everything, including the wifi. Not the worst option, but probably not the best in Munique either.
Unfriendly staff representative met us when we arrived (spoiled the first impresson). Further, paying for wi fi is extremely weird and constitutes poor customer survice. The same about towels. Room wasn't cleaned even once during 3 days stay, though it was full. No lockers in the room were available, we did not feel it was safe to leave our stuff in the room when leaving the hostel for the whole day. A lot of things could be done to increase customer satidfaction! e.g. free wi fi and towels
The guest kitchen is small and not very nice. And you have to check out dishes from the reception desk. This is a really big hostel with not much character, but it has everything you need and its generally clean.
Great place to stay in Munich! It was just outside the city center (10 minute walk or two stops on the U-bahn) and in a really great/safe area. It was World Cup season, so the bar area was crowded in the evening, but it was a great place to watch the games! A great place to meet other travelers too.
No complaints here. Only spent 3 nights in munich. Staff were helpful. The place was clean and there's a bar downstairs with a huge common area (perhaps too big). Would stay here again
Good location 2 seconds away from metro train, shops and laundry facilities the same distance, Great atmosphere and staff really helpful and reliable.
You will find out multiple extra charges that are not obviously stated in the hostel description once you get to the hostel. You need to pay additional fees for wifi while most of the other hostels in the area provide better quality of wifi for free. I have stayed at two other hostels in Munich and compared to them the service of the staff and breakfast were the worst in the area.
There is a Ubahn stop just down the street and that's nice. But this place was overpriced. They were going through some renovations, and maybe when they are done it will it will be better, but I would not stay here again. Also, the breakfast was not much more than toast and cereal and they wanted €5.90 for it!
Average hostel. There was quite a bit of room in the 6-girl dorm I stayed in so that was nice!
Very generic hostel. While you must pay for WiFi, it is quite fast and rather cheap: only 3 euros for 2 days. The beds are bunked, but the rooms are clean. Our bathroom shower didn't have very good drainage, even by European standards. The hostel was under construction on many floors while we stayed. Overall, a safe, clean hostel and not a half bad choice.
Hostel is under construction. All the ways are being painted. Currently really messy. We were charged a lot for a very simple shared room.
More of a hotel vibe than hostel. WiFi not free gotta pay. Comfy bed and blanket
It's a centrical hostel but about the internet should be free on the hall and charge on rooms.
Fairly good hostel. The downstairs bar area is fun but gets pretty rowdy at night (and some of the guests were a little rude to girls passing by). But it's close to the train station, clean, and comfortable.
The location wasn't great - about 15 min walk away from the main part of Munich. The rooms were basic, but no complaints there. The atmosphere downstairs was really fun, and the noise didn't travel at all, so upstairs was still quiet. Overall, I'd recommend this hostel.
Decent place, everything was clean and nice. The beds were extremely uncomfortable
