Very comfortable hostel that's an easy walk from the central station
My only complaint is the moldy bathrooms and broken Internet.
The Internet didn't work the entire time I was there. The newly remodeled dorms were nice but the mold in the bathrooms was pretty gross. The bar in the lobby was a great place to meet other travelers and have a couple of beers. The hostel is located a 15 min walk away from the city center and a 10 min walk away from the train station. It was very convenient.
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.
I arrived near midnight (most people were already several beers in) but had no trouble with registration or finding out about the area. It took almost zero time to meet other people and getting a game of pool going,
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.

Unfortunately, we arrived at a veri high season and thus we had to pay a lot more than the usual; i've paid better hostels for less price; this is a regular hostel with no special features: not so bad bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas; a good thing is the bar next to the entrance: happy hour means cheap beer! Location is far from the center. The specially bad things are the fact that they charge for the wifi and breakfast not included.
The staff weren't very friendly nor helpful. And the wifi suddenly "stopped working" so there was no way to book future accommodations and they were not going to do anything about it. Rooms are nice and spacious and there is a metro 200 mts on the corner.
The slowest internet ever and you have to pay for it!!! The guy at the reception gave me a girl’s room instead of a mixed room, at night they asked me to change the room and they blame me for the mistake, so I showed them my e-mail confirmation of the mixed room, after that they couldn’t give me any explanation of what happened and they never apologized. It was clean, secure and good located, but it wasn’t a smart hostel.

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
