“Has potential to be a great hostel! Unfortunately it isn't...”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This hostel could be great but is lacking in several areas:

The staff could be rude; I went to buy a drink from the fridge at reception. As soon as I put my hand on my drink of choice I was barked at "That'll be 2.50!" Making me feel I was being accused of attempted theft.

On arriving to our room we were very pleasantly surprised me and my friend were not in a 6 bed female dorm as booked but in a private room of our own. As I had had to pay when I made the booking no extra cost was incurred and the staff made no mention of the upgrade. The room was comfortable however, the pillows were pathetic even when doubled over, we couldn't turn off the radiator and the large window had no safety bracket limiting how wide you could open the window. This wouldn't have been a problem had it not been for the balcony directly outside our window which was a fire escape. We did not feel safe to sleep with the window open in fear for our safety and belongings.

Ok we were staying at peak season during Oktoberfest, in a hostel and hostels can't control how noisy their residents are. That's a given; we probably came home drunk a couple of times and could have been a little quieter. However, they could employ some sound proofing measures such as carpeting the long echoey corridors to prevent sound travelling. Even putting doors along the corridors to break up the sound travelling from other guests and the bathrooms. The bathrooms; we could hear all night (even though our room was nowhere near them) showers, teethbrushing, hand dryers, etc. If the hostel went to the small measure of not propping open the main door to the bathrooms the noise wouldn't carry!

I'm not sure if I would stay here again to be honest although positives were a great location close to the main train station, all you can eat breakfast and free wifi. I do think the hostel could have promoted their facilities better though; their bar, bar snacks and provided a wide range of leaflets advertising the attractions in and around Munich for days when we had no plans.

Room Tip: I think a tip is more appropriate for the hostel owners not the customer!

Stayed here for the middle weekend of Oktoberfest with a group of four. Room was nice and cosy and was clean. A let down for the place were the bathrooms which being Oktoberfest were just covered in every kind of excrement (including even the showers and sinks) and at one stage boys were using the girls which wasn't nice. Had it not been when the festival was there the facilities themselves would've been fine. The breakfast was really nice and the staff were helpful.

Overall a good hostel for what we were there for (oktoberfest), situated across the road from the main train station and not far from the festival site. The room we stayed in was ideal for what we wanted and bathrooms clean. Bar service was excellent provided by Alex never and empty glass! And food also available. The receptionist is much to be desired for and was quite rude. Yes it can get noisy at this time of year, but if you were looking at staying anywhere else it would cost a lot more. Overall brilliant stay :) would go back.

I've been there this year for Oktoberfest.
It's very noisy (the walls are very thin) and the beds are not so comfortable, but the rooms and the toilets were clean.
If you go there, be very careful with the keys, because they don't have a follow up system of the keys, and because we lost one (they could not prove that we took that key), we needed to pay 45 euro.

Stayed here during Oktoberfest. It was perfect location and had perfect vibe for the festivity. If your thinking of a relaxing stay in Munich wouldn't stay here as its pretty loud. Maybe this was just Oktoberfest time but the street was loud anyway. Overall a awesome place good value and good fun! Rooms and bathrooms clean which is what you want in a hostel.

Location great. Facilities reasonable.

But fk me...this is the noisiest hostel!!!!!

That and the pillows are like dried up cow turd run over by a car.

If u plan on sleeping here, get yourself completely wasted up cos with the quality of the beds and the noise it's the only way you will sleep is by passing out

Room Tip: Wombats hostel maybe?

We stayed here for 3 nights in a 12 bed dorm. The 12 bed dorms are completely fine. The only plug is near the door. The fact there is no private bathroom would normally be a hindrance however the bathrooms had more than enough showers and toilets and sinks so no complaints there. The breakfast was of a good standard. However they were very slow at refilling the water jugs and also replacing the food. The bar is cheap and happy hour well worth it. The pizza was also good! The location is great, right next to the train station - what more do you want.
