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.
