“You Get What You Pay For”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

The hostel is cheap, even compared to other hostels in Europe, which is awesome. If you want to stay in Munich on a very tight budget, this is a great option. But it's not without flaws.

My biggest problem was how far away it is from everything - it's a 25-30 minute tram ride to get to the old city. It is convenient to Nymphenberg Palace and the Botanical Gardens, but that's about it. And the hostel is a good 10 minute walk from the tram stop to boot.

I was somewhat disappointed in the food options, and the fact that you can't bring your own drinks. The bunkbeds are hard, the tent area is noisy, even during quiet hours due to people shuffling in and whispering loudly, and I was cold at night (it was in the mid-50s outside, easily that cold inside too). They do provide you with blankets, but since I had to use one for a pillow, that only left me with two.

All those complaints aside, the people who work there are the friendliest I've encountered in Germany, and very helpful. When we checked out early they refunded us for the extra night, which was awesome. The common areas are fun, particularly the small bonfire, and the wifi was appreciated if slow. A great place to meet other travelers for sure. The showers were hot.

If I were to go back, I'd probably chose the camping option, as I think I'd be more comfortable in my own tent with a little bit of privacy and a warm sleeping bag.

good alternative hostel. 15 minute tram ride away from main train station and city centre, so very easy to get around.
if you dont mind staying in a room with a lot of other people, then its a great hostel. very cheap homemade food on sight with a kitchen for you to cook yourself as well.
good common area, selling locally brewed beer at a very good price.
very relaxed atmosphere and was quite social, though the staff could have maybe done a bit more to integrate groups.
very helpful staff with free city tours every week.

A great place to meet new people at a really cheap price. A bit cold so make sure you wrap up warm even during the summer months. Trams run to the site all night so you are able to go out in Munich. Toliets and showers really good standard and beer is cheap at 2 euros for 500 ml which is cheap for Munich. Great place.

The place wasn't too bad, the bathrooms were clean, the breakfast was cheap and good. The tent itself however was a little on the smelly side. We couldn't figure out if the sheet on the bed had been washed, so we used one of the blankets we had been issued by the Tent, to sleep on. They issued us about 4 blankets each, and they were military wool blankets, so they were fairly warm. If you can stand the smell of the tent, then the place isn't too bad of a stay for the price. At least it is interesting. Lights go out fairly late, and quiet hours also start pretty late, however, they are strictly enforced. Wi-fi is available for free, and they can charge anything you need to charge inside the office.

By the time we got around to book accommodation for Oktoberfest all the hotels were gone so The Tent was our only option. As campsites go it's Ok. The site was very busy as it was Oktoberfest, it was hard to find a good spot to pitch the tent. Toilets and showers were dirty and always packed in the mornings. It took me 25 minutes to get into a shower and when I did the water was freezing! It get very very cold at night this coupled with the fact its very loud very early in the morning means a good nights sleep is impossible. Met some very friendly people, one guy offered us the use of his red dildo which was much appreciated!! I didn't enjoy the tent but that was probably because I'm now too old for that type of environment. The younger crowd sitting around the fire seemed to be loving their experience. Would I go again? No!! Would I recommend it to a young 20 year old who likes camping? Absolutely!

This is a camping site for with the bare essentials and cheap, I went during Oktoberfest and it was understandably packed, but due to the large amount of people there was always a queue for the bathroom and showers and you would have to be up very early to get a shower with warm water. I'm not trying to be ageist but this is accommodation for the young who don't need the creature comforts like heat, and don't mind going through the day on very little sleep as the campsite is awake and noisy quite early. The security isn't great either, on our first morning waking up, while making plans for the day in our tent, a fellow camper came into our tent brandishing a red dildo and asking if we needed it, I was terrified.
