“Affordable Oktoberfest stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2008

Starting about 4 months prior to our 1-night stay in Munich, we were looking for cheap lodging (one of our travelling companions was flying out of Munich the next morning). Because prices get *so* jacked up during Oktoberfect, we weren't having a lot of luck, but did eventually find a room for 3 adults at this suburban youth hostel. There was an Oktoberfest surcharge of 3 euro/pp/night but this is *much* less than the doubling or tripling of rates that is typical for that time of year.

The hostel staff were very accomodating with keeping the 4th bed empty for us (ie, private room ensuite) and were generally very friendly. Everything else was typically German youth hostel (make your own beds, bring down the sheets). Decent variety of breakfast foods. The setting is really lovely, being right on a small lake and surrounded by woods (an upscale suburb, houses separated and private with large lots). Very quiet. The S-Bahn station is 15-minute walk along wooded footpath. 45-minute train ride to downtown.

  • Liked — Price and setting
  • Disliked — It's a youth hostel...everything that goes along with staying at a youth hostel
  • Stayed October 2007, travelled with friends
