“Provided basics but wouldn't do it again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

We booked a last minute hotel for just one night in Munich. It was 62 EURO about 20 bucks cheaper than the cheapest room available at a hotel. The location seemed shady but we got in really late at night. The room seemed clean and we had a private bathroom. It was both me and my husband's first time living in a hostel. I would not go back again but it did provide a comfortable bed and bathroom for the night. NOTE: bring your own hand soap. You must pay for towels.

Wonderfully placed hostel local to Munchen Station.
Very, very clean and friendly staff.
It would be worth saying the entrance is down an alleyway off the main street as we missed it the first time.

Positive:
1) Good location: 5 min to the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) and 10 min to the City Center (Karlsplatz)
2) Clean room/bathroom and very good beds
3) Quiet room: ideal for someone who likes a good night of sleep!

Negative:
1) Don't have elevator but there are only 3 floors...
2) The information in the reservation e-mail are not clear: just catch the train in S8 line from the airport and get out at Hauptbahnhof without need to change trains!

great value room for three people, that's in a central location. the rooms were clean. We only stayed one night but we got a good nights rest before leaving Munich. The only negative was the windows had no curtains but we had to up early!

Hostel Central is a great budget location to rest your head in Munich but don't expect a party atmosphere! As the name suggests it's about a two minute walk from the Hauptbahnfof station (from where you can get everywhere in Munich) and is surrounded by cheap places to eat. Despite the fair few numbers of strip clubs and casinos the area felt safe at all hours of the day.

We booked a triple room with shared bathroom and paid 22 euros each. In retrospect we could probably have got a cheap hotel room but Hostel Central really met our needs. The place was spotlessly clean and the beds were really comfortable. The shared bathroom didn't prove to be a problem as there really wasn't many people in the hostel when we visited. As a result the hostel was not noisy and you could get a good nights sleep. Free Internet was also a real nice touch.

On the negative side the locker in our room didn't lock. The staff were quite friendly however they couldn't provide us with an english map and had no idea where to go for a night out. They did warm up when we started to speak German to them though.
