Property Description

We are located in the heart of Munich, not far from the world-famous Theresienwiese, location of the Oktoberfest.

We know a lot about Bavarian comfort, and so the feel-good factor in our Munich hostel is particularly great. Even the Bavarian specialities are not far. Directly opposite our house you'll find the famous Augustiner Brustuben. Here they brew what must be the best beer in the world. Prost!

But a great glass of beer and much more is also available in our own bar, including a chat with people from all over the world. In our cosy guest kitchen, you can also whip up your favourite dish as a change from Leberks and Weiwurst.

In our game room, a pool table, football table and darts awaits you - either for an international with other guests, or just a friendly match amongst friends. The cosier alternative: just put your feet up in our lobby, relax, or chat away with your friends at home at our internet terminals.

What's unique to our hostel is the relaxed international Atmosphere combined with the Bavarian lifestyle. But even the location is great. A 15-minute walk will take you to the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), and to the city centre almost as fast.

We offer accommodation in single and twin rooms, shared rooms or a dormitory. All rooms have their own bathroom with a shower and toilet, and are equipped with a TV set. In the dormitories, showers and toilets are separated. No need to bring bedding - this is included in the accommodation.

The welcome doesn't get much more Bavarian than at MEININGER Munich City Centre. We're right across the street from the city’s famous Augustiner Bräustuben brewery where you can try out popular dishes and a mug of local beer. If you’re a solo traveller, our games room is a great place to meet new people (try the pool table, foosball and dartboard!). Love to cook? We’ve got a guest kitchen you’re welcome to use and when you're feeling thirsty, head to our bar.


You’ll find us in the heart of Munich, a ten-minute walk from Theresienwiese, where Oktoberfest takes place. We’re a 15-minute walk from Central Station and to the city centre where you can try out the restaurants and brew houses. Getting to us from Munich airport is easy: just jump on the S1 line to Munchen Hackerbrücke station and then walk to our door in six minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

Whether you choose a single or a twin, a shared group room or a dorm, you’ll find all of our rooms have their own bathroom with a shower and toilet. Some even have TVs. Bed linen is free and there are roomy, secure lockers for all of your stuff. If you're in a dorm and haven't brought a towel you can rent one from reception. Hairdryers are on hand to hire, too, if you're travelling light.

Extras and activities

We’ve got free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel and free-to-use computers, so you can keep a watchful eye on your social feeds. If you want to see the sights of the city on two wheels, we can organise bike hire for you. Ask us to make you a packed lunch to see you through a busy day. Our cheap all-you-can-eat breakfast should keep you going till then – before you head out, swing by our 24-hour reception team for maps, tips and help booking tour tickets.

    So lovely! Fabulous location within an easy walk or tram ride to one of Munich's best biergartens and the city center. Super convenient if you're traveling in or out of the ZOB. We wished we had spent a few more nights here!

    This is a standard Meininger hostel similar to the other ones around Europe. Very clean, secure, good wifi, nice social area and comfortable beds. Bad storage before/after check out is very handy. No issues at all and would be happy to stay here again

    Bar and restaurant was closed the whole stay there. Tough meeting other travelers when the hostel bar isn't open. Would of been nice being able to have a beer on location instead of going out searching for a spot. Location very close to main bus and train stations making it convenient to get to. Close proximity to trams as well to get around the city. Staff super friendly at the front desk

    This hostel was super clean! The private room had everything we needed and staff were attentive at the desk. Only thing is i’d ask for a room away from the road as it’s noisy with the windows open and there is no air con. Also avoid the breakfast...not worth the extra money for what is provided. I would stay here again

    The desk was very unhelpful when I arrived, claiming that I would have lockers in my room when I arrived, and after I told them I didn't, admitted they lied. One woman staying in my room didn't have a working key card, and the made her go up and down the four flights of stairs three times before they decided to do anything about it. Extremely clean, however, and a good location with a nice atmosphere.

    Maybe book another hostel between this one and Munich so you can get some rest on your massive journey into the city centre. You could get a tram quote easily but that would require speaking another language. Great hostel with good facilities.

    Very Good

    A typical franchise hostel covering all the basics. Beds were simple and no plugs and poor lights set up next to beds. No real atmosphere when I was there but looks like there are people about in the outside areas later on. Close(ish) to the main station and Hackerbrucke station just round the corner.

    Wouldn’t recommend for youngish solo travellers I’m 25 and the place was full of families and school tour groups not ideal for atmosphere. Breakfast well overpriced at 8 euro for no hot food and an average coffee, staff were helpful and friendly though and close to FlixBus and train but not to near good food and supermarkets

    The room was unbearable hot at night as there was no air conditioning or fan, and the windows couldn’t be opened fully, only tilted.
