    Was pretty impressed by the tent actually, the bed was pretty good and it wasn’t cold (even though it was raining the whole time) the staff made the stay so much fun with their wild attitude and willingness to help. Toilet was clean & shower was nice and hot. Was a short walk to the station with about a 30 minute commute to the festival show grounds but all in all would recommend

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST DECISION WE MADE! This was such a fun stay and wayyyyyyy better than we anticipated! We met some of the most fun people staying here and the 8 person tents are the way to go! Its a quick bus over to the fest and the staff is also so helpful. HIGHLY recommend.

    Absolutely perfect budget option for oktober fest. Right next to a u-bahn station that leads to oktober fest with only one change over. Facilities are really good, breakfast with loads of fruit, loads of bathroom/shower facilities which are cleaned regularly. Friendly staff that also run free oktober fest tours which are always a good time. Couldn’t recommend this place enough to other travellers. Best part was the atmosphere and friendliness of everyone from guests to staff.

    Festanation is such a fun experience. Def stay in the group tent as it has heaters and plugs. We were decently warm thanks to the space heater, even on a rainy night. The bathrooms are clean, the women’s bathrooms have plenty of space/sinks/plugs for girls to get ready. The best part about Festanation is the group breakfast and free tour to Oktoberfest. We met some awesome people at breakfast and we ended up spending all day at Oktoberfest. Would stay there again!

    Super fun, but 50 minutes from Oktoberfest Theriesenwiese. Staff is HYPE and great way to meet tons of people. Lots of hot showers and very clean. Great value for what you pay, free breakfast and beer is awesome

    Honestly this is perfect for Oktoberfest- it’s all you need, super close to the metro to get straight to Oktoberfest. Would HIGHLY recommend the 8 people tent - way more space to put things and great charging spot, light and perfect to meet people too. They gave a free breakfast which was also fab.

    Yes it was a bit far out and yes it is camping (and all that entails) but I had the most incredible time at Festnation!!! The staff were absolutely INCREDIBLE, they were all so lovely and friendly and happy to help out. Heaters in the 8 bed dorm tents were amazing, this was glamping. Great place to make some great friends!

    For being the cheapest alternative to accomodation in Munich during Oktoberfest, it was actually suprisingly great. The staff were super chill, the common areas were pretty awesome and the facilities were good.

    Know beforehand what you are getting yourself into: camping with facilities near by (toilets and showers are 1 block away and bar is 3 blocks away) the tents that are shared with the RVs. Location is a good 30 min from the oktoberfest site. It can be loud at night. breakie included is ok. It can be a crapshoot if you end up with someone that snores at night. I wouldn’t recommend this place since you have to pay extra for wifi. I can understand this only in third world countries.
