    I was expecting the worst camping outside of Ocktoberfest but Festanation was awesome! All of the staff was so warm, welcoming, friendly and fun. I only stayed 2 nights but made friends with staff and people in my 8 person tent. The sleeping bags were warm, bathrooms were clean, free breakfast was yummy and filling. The bar food is overpriced but the drindls they sell are reasonable. Thanks to Flavio and other staff for taking care of my drunk ass when I was throwing up after Oktoberfest!

    Amazing place to be staying at for Oktoberfest. The staff members were all amazing and very friendly. I ended up staying there for an extra week and a half due to how much I enjoyed it there. Definitely recommend staying here over a hostel for Oktoberfest even though it is a bit further away from Oktoberfest than other places. Will definitely be staying here again the next time I go to Oktoberfest

    Fun atmosphere but the biggest issue I found was how far away the campsite was. My friend and I had a hard time figuring out where it even is when we got in. Had to consistently use Uber to get back because public transit didnt run frequently late.

    The staff didn't seem very helpful or accommodating and the air mattress that I slept on looked very dirty & hadn't been cleaned for a while! Also, the tent was crawling with bugs & overall was a pleasant atmosphere

    When planning a trip to Munich for Oktoberfest, I decided to book a double bed tent for 2 nights. The living accommodations turned out to be more Woodstock than hostel, and not in a good way. The staff, seemingly composed mostly of volunteers were inattentive and rude. The tent itself wasn't bad, however other visitors were screaming until 4 or 5 in the morning. I suppose I shouldn't have expected much from a campsite, however $200 for 2 days of no sleep was overpriced.
