I enjoyed my stay and the happy hour beers.


Nice hostel with extremely friendly staff with good communication skills. I liked the happy hour in the hostel bar, the proximity to nearby restaurants as well as the metro. I would recommend.

They charge for the wifi, very high prices.


The hostel is good, with free wifi actually and free sandwich. The staff is friendly also.

Good place, but way over priced!!!!! They can do it because of the newer facilities, and it was World Cup weekend so I get it… Find something cheaper

Really missed breakfast in the morning, especially for the price. Hostel was easy to find, but in a slightly sketchy area. I'm a solo female traveler, so I wanted to be in the hostel before 9 every night...things got weird around the area after that point. Great atmosphere, free WiFi was very much appreciated. Bring your own lock for lockers!


Nice place, not far from the downtown. The bar in the lobby is fun, especially for watching the World Cup semifinals. The rooms are clean, the staff are very helpful, and while it is not a long walk to the downtown area, there is a metro stop less than a block away.


Smart Stay is not an accurate name. Downstairs common area was uninviting, albeit packed. Doesn't feel comfortable meeting people. Wifi cost wasn't terrible, but why isn't it included/free? Staff also didn't tell me about what I could expect or experience. Nothing about the breakfast, towels, how to get around. Felt very much like I was being processed

A good hostel on an easy walk-distance from HBF and city centre. Breakfast and WiFi not included, which is something to think about. Lockers were too small for back-packs, but the room otherwise spacious with own bathroom, toilet. The quality of the beds could be improved, the guy next to me fell through his bed when the bottom broke...


This place offers a good deal for munich prices, however the 8 bed dorms are not so clean as they should be..especially for their price..a lot of things like internet and breakfast was on extra charge so ask before you decide..


It is far away from train station, I would not recommend to arrive at night, I needed to walk to an area seemed a red district and group of men drinking. Some staff could be more friendly.


Building was under construction. Our shower did not drain properly. However, it was fine as a place to sleep after exploring the city.


This hostel kinda sucks there is no place to sit outside, the shower drain was clogged with pubes and you have to pay money for horrible wifi. One nice thing is that it has a cigarette vending machine


Thanks guys, will stay here again,


The bar and lounge area allows for a lot of socialising with other guests and the hostel itself is close to Marienplatz which allows for an easy journey into a cultural party of the city as well as being in a convenient location when travelling from the main train station. The internet had to be paid for but it wasn't that bad of a price and was still very strong when in the room.


Amazing hostel, i would definitely go back there!


It was really great and I will not hesitate to recommend your hostel to friends or relatives. It was a wonderful stay. I thought I was at home. Very calm, clean with such a competent staff. Good Service indeed! Great work and Team!


Place wasn't really a hostel and didn't have much vibe to it really downstairs. Rooms were fine albeit really hot even though it was cold outside (even without the heaters on) so we had to leave the windows open at night or suffer through the heat. This meant mosquitos so got eaten alive. All in all it was an alright place but I'll likely try to find another place next time.


Decent place to stay in Munich. Close to the city center and a cheap place to stay. Atmosphere isn't the best if you are a solo traveler.


I usually expect for free WiFi and breakfast, what was not the case.
