Liked: It was clean, the staff was nice, the area is supposed to be "the place to be" at night.

Disliked: They were building something at the moment so it was noisy. There was no free internet and I think for its price they could have offered a free breakfast or at least a towel.

Liked: Clean and safe, no real issues, although there are better hostels out there for young adults.

Disliked: A bit far way from Hauptbahnhof, but looked like it was near some good bars. There wasn't much room for meeting new people, as although there was a bar area, it was very small.

Liked: Location is great, the bar downstairs is inexpensive and quite a bit of fun. Free laundry facilities

Disliked: The absolute worst wifi anywhere, several common areas without wifi causing them to be virtually empty. Laundry and kitchen well hidden in the basement.

Liked: It had a kitchen (although a tiny one), the rooms and linen were clean, the rooms had a private bathroom and the staff were helpful.

Disliked: Breakfast cost extra, there was no air-con and we weren't even allowed to open the door to the balcony- which would have made the room a lot more tolerable.

Liked: As always, Meininger Hostels offer a very nice service! The beds are really comfortable and everything is really clean! It's about 25 minutes walk from the Dom, but it near a big street with lots of restaurants and bars! I would also recommend the mexican bar down the street, they offer really good cocktails! For fellow travelers who are missing a good evening at the movie theater, the Metropolis is the place for you: they offer movies in English! (But far from the hostel...)

Disliked: Whic you could bring your own bouse (though they don't really matter)!

Liked: decent kitchen, good location in the student quarter and very clean and comfortable.

Disliked: i was under the impression that breakfast is included from whay id read, but its 6 euro. also the bar/common area was dead, so it would have been hard to socialise if i didnt meet people in my dorm.

Liked: Clean and the Bar is available downstairs for relaxing on the couch

Disliked: The bar becomes a bar (smoking allowed etc) at 10pm and from then on there is not really anywhere to relax out of the smoke except rooms. Unfortunately i was "upgraded" to a TINY room and my roommates were friends - very uncomfortable for me. apart from that the place is fantastic!
