2 min walk from Central station. there is no a/c so if it's hot out double that temperature for your room. right downtown and the street over is really sketchy I wouldn't recommend going out alone. the hostel itself is pretty nice though

Internet strength wasn't great, but the hostel was extremely secure and easy to get to from the train station
Nice hostel in a good location - 2 minute walk from the main train station, short walk to Innerstradt and Sachsenhausen districts. Immediate vicinity is a bit rough - the red light district is one street over and we saw somebody get mugged at the train station. Attitude of the staff isn't great - we had to wait 20mins to get served for a bottle of water whilst one member of staff sat looking at his laptop. Also was short changed on receiving deposit back.

Good hostel. Not the typical backpackers hostel, where you'll meet a lot of new people. The 14-person dorm was spacious with good beds and 3 showers. Toilets were separate, but that wasn't a big deal. Very close to the train station, but also near sex shops/prostitutes, which might some people make uncomfortable, especially in the evenings
Loved our stay here! Met travellers from all over, they had a convenient bar downstairs too. Great location, right next to the station. Pretty clean.
I liked the mix dorm room setup and thought it was very modern and spacious. I just wish there had been individual bed lights for each bunk instead of having to purchase them since there's only one light for the whole room. The communal showers aren't great since there are no places to hang your stuff in the shower or set them down without getting wet. Overall it was clean but showering was definitely a challenge since my boyfriend had to stand outside the shower and hold all my stuff.
The hostel is located on the main street in front of the main station so it is super convenient. It is not pricy at all given it's great location. There are bars and restaurants downstairs so you will never have to worry about food! Rooms are clean with huge locker, and you need your room card for every single door (even the toilets and showers) so it's safe. The only little complain is that there are not many hooks to hang your stuff in the showers but given it's price it's still fine.
Really friendly staff. Convenient location to the Hauptbahnhof.
it is good for the price. I found the chinese group next door was very noisy and mess all the toilet.

Good hostel and I would definitely had given it a better grade if I hadn't paid 32 EUR pro night for dorm. I stayed there while a big congress was happening in Frankfurt, therefore it was overpriced. Installations are good and it was decently cleaned. Location is excellent (close to main station) with plenty of restaurants and shops (market, pharmacy) nearby and within a 15 min walk to the old town or the Messe. Staff were average friendly and I really miss a common room for interacting with ppl
Trendy modern hostel. Close to the HBF and walking distance from main attractions.
When i got there i was impressed by the place, they were renovating and it was very good, I stayed just 1 day but this hostel is really nice and the bedroom are good, totally recommended.
Probably a good idea to warn people, especially female travellers not to venture to the next street over (red light district?) or give them a heads up that's what it is. I was travelling with another female friend and we accidentally took that way down which was an unpleasant experience.
when i took a shower, only hot water flew out. so I had to take a shower at the shower room.
Great location, very clean and modern place. Breakfast is also fantastic.
Good location in distance to the main station. Right next to a porn store and hookers. Friendly staff. No lockers. Bathroom looked clean, but smelled like pee. Beds were fine. Lounge was ok, but didn't meet any young people.
most comfortable bed of any hostel for our entire trip
My second stay and they were better on the second stay then they were on the first. I really enjoyed the breakfast which was not free but well worth the money. I've been to a lot of Hostels throughout Europe and they are all unique and have a mark of remembrance which I definitely will remember with this one.
Worst hostel experience ever! "Free WiFi" is a fraud, you have to pay for anything but super-slow WiFi that you have to confirm again and again every few minutes (instead of every 3 hrs as claimed). Super dirty floor in my room. Breakfast is pretty poor compared to the value-for-money you get everywhere around in bakeries and cafes. Atmosphere is super bad, no one hanging around at the bar, no interesting people to meet. The bar didn't have any cocktails or longdrings though claimed on menu.
