“No aircon. Banging doors day & night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Location is close to the main station. There are no towels but it's clean. 34 degrees no aircon in the dorms Unbearable , super loud with windows open all night. Doors thar close shut by themselves are constantly banging. Reception one person was very helpful and friendly.

This hostel is in a great location and spotlessly clean! Staff fairly friendly on reception but the information guys are great, really helpful! Its not so much a place to 'meet other travellers' as people don't really socialise there. Would still highly recommend though!

Close to the train station and right in the center.
the Hostel was clean, and the bathrooms too.
Just to cleaning staffs were not as friendly when they got my check out date mixed out and asked me to leave.. when they realized they were wrong, they didnt apologize!
but the place is great!

Excellent hostel. Very clean. Very efficient. Very helpful staff. It's easy to see the influence of the partner hotels on this hostel: Clarion, Ramada, and Comfort. I've stayed at United several times and don't even consider another hostel when visiting Frankfurt.

Room Tip: I'd tell you the room I prefer, but then you'd sign up and it won't be available when I...

Have stayed at this hostel on several occasions and used both the smaller 4 bed dorms and the larger mixed dorms. I would highly recommend this hostel to those seeking a safe, central location. Lockers are available, as well as internet and cooking facilities.

The hostel is practically a 5 minute walk up the road from the central railway station as well as being a few minutes away from the city centre. The actual area surrounding the hostel itself leaves little to the imagination with various porn shops etc but due to the proximity to the station, there are always tourists walking around, no matter what time it is.

The staff have always been very friendly and the security is very tight.. so much so that even friends visiting are not allowed up to your dorm.. good as it means they are in complete control of who is inside the hostel.

The hostel, though very central, is quiet at nighttime and all the facilities were very clean and well-kept.

Although in the red light district of Frankfurt, the location is very convenient - walking distance to the central part of the city and just a few minutes away from the main train station.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The dorm room I was in was very comfortable and clean, lots of natural light and a window that opened wide enough to give you lots of fresh air. The toilets and bathroom were a little less clean but not unbearable. Kind of a weird shower room where you can practically see into each shower cubicle and you either put your clothes on in the small shower cubicle while soaking wet (with nowhere to hang your stuff in the shower cubicle), or come out of the cubicle into the shower room naked and put your clothes on there. Just a bit of an awkward design, but I managed - there just happened to be no one having a shower at the time I was.

Keep some money on hand for various kinds of deposits (eg. for the key card, for the contraption to enable the electrical outlet at your bed). Minor inconvenience but it was only a deposit, you get everything back at the end if you return it in working condition

Other than that I quite enjoyed my stay here and got a pleasant vibe from this hostel.

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.
