Good location near to Railway Station, modern, clean and comfortable rooms
The hostel looks like a questionable club and is located in the heart of the the red light district. The staff is very slow and not very considerate of their guests needs. They did not ask questions such as whether I needed a lock for the locker, or a light adapter to use the power in the room. Even if you pay for the use of the outlet, someone must leave a key in the room switch. The sheets were spotted with visible stains. It is safer and more comfortable than a train station.
The hostel is located very conveniently near Frankfurt's Main station, which makes it a good hostel to stay for one night (as I did). Unfortunately there was quite a wait for the checkin (I have been waiting for at least 45 mins). The hostel itself looks very good and clean. One thing that can be annoying is that the doors all around the hostel are quite heavy. Because of this, a single person opening a door near the elevator (or the dorm door) can unintentionally wake up several people.
The hostel was ok. The room was clean. You have to pay extra to use a light and the power point at your bed. The only major issue I had with this hostel though was that there was no privacy in the shower rooms. To get changed and dried was all out in the open. No little cubicles. And the shower rooms are unisex so as a girl I felt quite uncomfortable with that.
The only thing i didn't really liked is the fact that they charge you to use the plug next to the bed 1 euro per night, the rest was great
In the kitchen it's not so comfortable to cook without some necessary stuff, but everything is almost ok.
The whole room was stinking. The morning after, the cleaning guy (who did not speak any English) summoned a sort of toilet-emergency meeting with another hostel person. They were inside for about twenty minutes during which they did manage to change the toilet roll, which had expired the evening before, but not to clean the toilet

Very close to the train station, makes it a perfect location to enter the city and not travel around with luggage!!
Stayed here one night because of an early flight from Frankfurt, perfect location - 3 min walk from main train/bus station, regional train to airport 10 min, very easy.
Too big to have much of an atmosphere, but really modern and tidy nonetheless. Having to pay to charge your phone stinks a bit, and kitchen is tiny and only has microwaves which is pretty poor. For a city hostel though I guess it is what you'd expect and I'd go there again
The downstairs is a bit over the top for a hostel, it is more of a disco room which gives the place a strange atmosphere. The shared computer terminals are super annoying to use and were a super pain. Rooms were clean, kitchen was nothing more than a bench and a fridge for everyone in the whole place. Alright place except for the computers, kitchen and strange atmosphere
Flash but worst wifi ive ever had on 6 months of travelling, showers cold, Hardly a kitchen, just a microwave and toaster
A good place to stay although there were not even close to enough toilets, and the ones that were there wasn't very clean
Really nice, but everything is an additional charge
As many people have advised, there is the rule that you have to pay and make a deposit to use the plug in your bed. The location is a little bit "depressing". But this is a consequence of the type of night life in this part of Frankfurt. I was not expecting such environment. A part of that, the hostel is good and it has an awesome design.
i have stayed in hotels that offer less!!! the bathrooms were cleaner than any hostel iv ever been in, BY FAR! the facilities were great! the beds were clean and very comfortable! the rooms immaculate!! the staff were very helpful, situated in a great place close to bars, shops and supermarkets. although hey offered free wifi i couldn't connect but they still offered free wifi on their own computers. nothing bad to say about this place, had a great stay and would highly recommend this place!
It is in deed very close to the central station, but if you care about neighbourhood maybe you wont like the strip clubs very close to it. The room was very clean, the beds were good but the fact that you have to pay for electricity is surreal. Plus, the wifi never worked. Even so, it is worth it for those who just want a well located place to sleep.
Coming from Eastern Europe, I was prepared for far worse conditions. The room, the bathroom, the dining room and the whole building was pretty clean, and everything was well ordered. At first it was a bit frustrating to go to the WC with the plastic card; but for the secure atmosphere it is understandable. The magnet cards could be replaced with magnet bracelets, making the whole security process more conformable. The hostel is at the city center.. and in the red light district at the same time.

Really safety. Great location provides access to city center in a few minutes. Facilities are new and clean. - Poor WiFi connection. You have to pay extra money for padlock to your locker and also for electricity. Otherwise, i can highly recommend.
