We have breakfast every morning from 7:30-12 for 6,50 EUR. Our breakfast is vegetarian, and vegan friendly as we offer a variety of breakfast foods, ranging from different breads, locally sourced meats (local sausage & bacon), fruits, vegetables, cheeses, hummus, lentil spreads, yogurts, nuts, cereals, muesli, jams, and more! We're also proud of the fact that the majority of our foods come without packaging, as a way to help reduce waste.
Breakfast is included from the 3rd day of your stay

Check our website and Facebook for special events, special food offers, and news.

There is one tiny downside to our LOCATION: we are located smack dab in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! Anyhow, it is NOT at all dangerous and our hostel has a HIGH safety standard. We only mention this so you don't find yourself surprised upon arrival. Our neighbourhood is home to some of the best food and clubs Frankfurt has to offer. In fact, the New York Times even wrote an article on our upcoming neighbourhood in 2016! However, if you don't feel comfortable staying in this area, feel free to book somewhere else.

If this isn't a problem, you'll discover many upsides to our location:
- 3 min walk from the train station
- 10 min walk to the museums/river bank
- 15 min walk to the city centre, old city, and main shopping area
And - we promise - you'll find the best international food in our neighbourhood!

Look out for our LAST MINUTE SPECIALS (each bed 19,- Euro one day before arrival), and our seasonal specials.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact one of our lovely office team members: Esther, Agne, and David. They're always happy to help you.
See you soon!!

    Superb

    Best hostel I've ever stayed at! They had events going on every night either free meals or live music. If you stay at least 3 nights you get free breakfast (which actually didn't suck and was served until noon!). Even though it's in the red light district I always felt really safe (I'm a solo female traveller) and the building is locked down really heavy so if you aren't a guest it'd be hard to get in. They have really clean and spacious rooms with comfy beds. The staff were amazing!

    Very Good

    09 Nov 2018
    I was very disappointed with the staff during my stay. The place itself was not bad at all, with a comfortable private room. While I was checking into the hostel, I was never handed my passport back, and I only came to realise this 30 minuets before my flight at the airport at 5am (Frankfurt Hahn - 1hr45mins away). Due to this I had to miss my flight, travel back to the hostel and having to re-book my flight to go home that evening. No apology/ empathy from the hostel at all during it all.

Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt says

I'd say our most unique feature is that our staff love the hostel and our guests so much that they end up spending lots of their free time at the hostel! There's always someone you can talk to here. Really, our staff have been called the most friendly staff in Germany. There's free activities every night, plus billiards, a bar and a backyard.
We're quite close to the main station. We've quite close to the Main River, the museums, the botanical gardens and shopping malls. The one local place that I'd definitely recommend is the Äppelwoi pub quarter in Sachsenhausen. It's full of small unique stores, bars and restaurants. We like it so much that we offer a free pub crawl through Sachsenhausen once a week.
No matter if you come to explore the city and the beautiful area around Frankfurt, or just stop over flying in or out via Germany's biggest airport, we are happy to be your home away from home. Sarah, Manager

Things to Note

PLEASE NOTE:
Since Jan. 1 2018 the City of Frankfurt charges a tourism tax of Euro 2 per person per night which is not included in the given rate since it only applies to non-business trips.

We do not accept bookings for groups of larger than six people. We will not honour group bookings split into smaller chunks to get around that.

We do not accept guests under 18 years, unless they are traveling with their parents. For exceptions, please contact the hostel directly.

We have a 48hr cancellation policy. No-shows and late cancellations shall be charged the equivalent of the first night's booking.

There is a 2€ deposit for keycards, refundable on check-out.
