This safe and comfortable hostel features free dinners and activities every day and also has an onsite bar open 24/7. Several Hostelworld guests have told us that they'd stay here again, citing the games room with foosball and pool table and the Wi-Fi throughout the building.

We have breakfast every morning from 7:30-12 for 6,50 EUR.

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.

    The hostel is absolutely fantastic, just make sure to read about its location (in the middle of the red light district). However, walk a couple of blocks in any direction and it will be fine :)

    Great hostel! The area, as warned on the website, doesn’t feel safe at all, especially since I was all by myself, but once I entered the hostel I felt safe again. The reception aren’t kidding about the security, they really check who enters the dorm room hallway. The staff was super friendly, gave me great tips for sightseeing! There was a private bathroom in my dorm room, which was quite fancy for a hostel :)

    Stayed in an apartment. Just perfect for what we wanted. Floors could do with a better washing between bookings. Although the area could be daunting, no one bothered us, and after the initial shock of the area it actually seemed quite safe, people kept to themselves.

    Good hostel overall. I stayed in a private room so didn't get the chance to meet any of the other guests this weekend, but the living room/bar area is quite nice!

    Very convenient location although in a very seedy area as the description says. Didn’t feel unsafe though. Nice bedrooms and bathrooms. Good beer prices at happy hour

    It's located in the durtiest and scariest district, well it is kinda convinient cause it's close to the main station. Yet if you want to live long, I wouldn't recommend ANY accomodation in this district. I've been waking up every day from the screams of junkies, their fights and shortly after the police sirens, watching all this nightmare through my window. The staff was quite friendly, but it can't possibly compensate the overall impression. WHich was awful. My worst hostel experience ever.

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
