Liked: There are events every night, there is always the opportunity to be social and meet new people. Would definitely recommend it for people who are travelling alone. the facilities are great, however there is only one washer and one dryer

Disliked: The area is a little rough but perfectly safe especially if you make sure to take the right precautions, it's only a 2 minute walk into a mor relaxed area

Liked: Everything was fine. Nothing amazing.

Disliked: The location is quite bad as it is on a red light district and it is full of homeless people/druggies so it is pretty loud. On a friday night there was music going on till 8AM so if you're a light sleeper it might be difficult to get to sleep (however I was in a bedroom on the front side so it might be better in other places).

Liked: good location. very close to the main train station. good security. you need to show them your guest card to be let up the rooms. great breakfast that is available until 1130 or midday. friendly staff. this place is very clean. apparently the toilets are cleaned 3 times a day. they have great showers too. big lockers in rooms. nice mattress too . 24 hour reception is good too. a small kitchen is quite handy. pool table. nice bar area. dvds you can rent. good wifi in rooms. free pancakes sometimes at night. pay 1 or 2 euros for barbecues. pub crawl once a week. it is in the red light area, but it feels quite safe, they don't normally bother you. this place is great value for money.

Disliked: I was on level 5 and the lift was broken. to make it worse, my swipe card stopped working a few times when I was there, it was a long way down and long way up by stairs. one female staff there was not too friendly.no age restriction here. one weird old guy in my room was trying to shut all the windows in this summer heat, because he was afraid to catch a cold. doing morning exercise in the morning in his bed to keep his body going while waking everybody up. and was generally not very considerate to other people. if you keep the windows open, it can be quite noisy on weekends

Liked: Simply the best. Excellent atmosphere, fantastic location, and great staff. There's something going on every night, but if that isn't your style you won't be bothered as the rooms are very quiet. Be sure to stick around for the pub crawl on Thursdays!

Disliked: Eric left no negative feedback.

Liked: Nice bar/common area and the bedrooms and everything really was clean. Met some great people on the night walking tour and at the bar and the bbq was very nice and also another opportunity to meet and chat to people. Nice lounge area downstairs with seats, pool table, tv/dvd's etc. But locker cages for your bags during the day which was really handy.

Disliked: It is not in the best location, right within the Red Light District, so if your are approaching it alone with a big back-pack etc, you might feel a little exposed, although nothing dodgy happened with me and I heard of nothing else, so it's really not too bad. Apart from that, the hostel is really near the train station still fairly central.

Liked: Although the hostel is in the red light district, inside you felt safe, and the bar area had a relaxed atmosphere in which to meet other travellers. The large storage lockers were great!

Disliked: Due to the hot weather and lack of air conditioning, the rooms were quite warm, and the bathrooms were humid and musty. I also didn't like that there were two showers side by side in a room offering very little privacy.

Liked: I booked a private room that was very nice, more like a boutique hotel room.

Disliked: Very poor check in and check out, with no smile or warmth from receptionists. You check in at the bar, and perhaps because I arrived at 10pm it seemed very chaotic, with music blaring and a long wait.

Liked: Good combination of location, price and facilities. Breakfast was ok, not exceptional but the fact that they even include breakfast is exceptional for a backpacker hostel (they do not have a kitchen accessible for guests). Internet worked well even from my bed. Staff was friendly and well-trained. I noticed that they were constantly cleaning/disinfecting the place to stay ahead of any problems. I had a visibly challenged gentleman sharing our 6 bed room so I observed how a staff person accompanied this guest from check-in to our room and gave him an orientation to the entire facility.

Disliked: This is clearly a youth-oriented facility. Except for the visibly challenged gentleman mentioned above and myself, I did not see anyone (guest or staff) who appeared to be older than 30-35. That's not a complaint just an observation, since it determines the embiance of the place. I would stay there again when I am in FRA for the same purpose (easy access to a morning flight)

Liked: It's a nice hostel, really close to the train station. It's really secure (it needs to be considering it's in the middle of the red district) and clean. There's about 8 rooms per floor and 6 floors. The shared bathroom and kitchen were clean (2 bathroom, 1 shower for guys and the same for girls). The rooms are big enough, with big personnal lockers under the beds (on wheels), big enough to fit a big traveling backpack and a second small one. There's WIFI on all the floors, a pool table and babyfoot table. There's an elevator so you don't have to walk up all the time. The hostel is really cheap during the weekends as any other place in Frankfurt from what I got. Prices go up during the week and festivals.

Disliked: The hostel is in the red district, which means tons of casino, strip-clubs where each doorman ask you to get in, a few junkies at all time of day, etc. It's really not that bad, but you don't stick around too long when you get out of the hostel. The red district is only 1-2 blocks by 2-3 blocks. The terrasse is in a parking lot at the back of the building, it's not that nice and lots of people use it to smoke, non-smokers won't like it. The WIFI stopped working on our floor the first night I got there and was never repaired. It was working fine in the looby/dining room/bar.

Liked: Perfect hostel! Clean and safe and located very conveniently right by the main station (if a little awkwardly between some strip clubs). Heaps of activities, pool table, movie area, free breakfast, bar, best showers i've ever experienced in a hostel. Highly recommended!

Disliked: The only thing i can honestly say was not awesome was that i had a half-bad mojito in the bar. The red light district thing is probably a bit weird for some people but it's seriously not that bad. This hostel rules.
