“Good hostel”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It's conveniently located near the train station and there are lots of shops outside to get variety of stuffs. The rooms were all clean and nice. The electrical outlet at my bed didn't work which was a bummer. Remember to get that checked before selecting your bed.

Great value for money. Hip, clean, great breakfast, amazingly close to central station. Not sure about a common meeting room since wifi works in rooms. There was a chill lounge but I didn't go. Great music was playing and front reception guy was friendly. Only downside was the weirdness of having to contact reception if you wanted the power turned on by your bed so you could charge devices.

The hostel was very good: central location, nice and friendly staff, good breakfast (worth the extra 4,50€). The room (female 10bedded dorm) was clean and big enough and the environment is very young and colourful. I would surely suggest it to young travellers (solos or with friends)!

The good:
Clean, comfortable, flashpacker-style hostel located minutes from Frankfurt's main train station. Bedding was particularly clean and comfortable. Convenient lockers (without locks) available for each guest. Plenty of toilets. Helpful front desk. The hostel is very secure at the cost of always needing to have your card key with you (even when going to the toilet) No funky smells, no broken furniture or doors, all has been maintained very nicely.

Things I didn't like:
Paying to use electricity is annoying and not convenient in regards to deposit and device.
Needing a card key to power on electricity is also odd.
No free towel. A room key deposit that is valued at more than the key itself. This is an extra large hostel and I can imagine there might be long lines during busy seasons.

Room Tip: Beds in dorms are given as a first-come-first-chose basis. They have a nice system that is simple ye...

I came to Frankfurt a bit unexpectedly; I hadn't done any research on the place so I felt like a fish out of water--United Hostel was my "oasis" for the week I was there. The cleanliness, decor, and professionalism of the staff made this place feel like a modern hotel with hostel prices! Furthermore, I misplaced a valuable item, and the staff was super-helpful about helping me find it, and even followed up by sending an email after I left!

Very close to the main train station - just 10 minutes walking distance. Room is a bit noisy if it is located in the face side of the building and the locking door system is also too loud because you will be listening to all the doors opening and closing in your floor. BUT it is safe, clean and staff people very aware and nice to what you ask for. About the Red Light District, it is not a problem at all because you can avoid it walking along paralel streets during the night time and during the day you would never tell it. From the hostel you can walk to anywhere in town if you are a good walker. There are cheap markets on the street to buy basic products to keep in your room and a McDonalds is just by your side to your convenience too. It is very fare

Room Tip: If you have a room with street front window, you may consider it a bit noisy!

This is part of a growing trend of hostels that are bring hostels a new name. The economical value for what you get is wonderful. For under twenty euros you get a bar, a large community room to hang out in and play pool, watch tv, or simply catch up on work with plenty of tables ot work on. The hostel rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful. Internet acted up a little but I was appreciative of the fact it was free. A fun time was had by both my friend who was experiencing her first hostel and myself who has stayed at many hostels throughout the years.

Room Tip: No swimming pool or fitness center was available.
