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.
