Liked: It has good good facilities and it was clean.

Disliked: Atmosphere mainly. It seemed to me like a big hotel with shared rooms rather then being a place with a familiar atmosphere where you can easily meet people and feel part of a group instead of feeling just as a client. On top of this, it was packed with kids screaming and partying in the rooms, mainly the one just besides mine. I mentioned this in the reception and the answer was "Ah, you know how it is...". Also one thing i believe it's not very honest and happens in few hostels is to pay for essential things. For example the power outlet. There's an individual one for every bed, but you have to pay to use it. We can have a towel but they don't rent it. I had to buy one (when the point of backpacking is to carry the less i can).

Liked: Good lockers, comfy beds and clean bathrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff!

Disliked: You have to pay just to use a plug socket! The kitchen was pointless as it had no hob or oven. Very noisey with people in the corridors all night long. The Tv was left on ALL NIGHT on VERY LOUD In the red light district of frankfurt. Not a pleasant area at all! Did not feel safe at night.

Liked: This hostel is very well situated, just a 5 minute walk from the main train and is also perfect to walk around the city ! I thouroughly enjoyed staying there, it's a brand new hostel which apparently opened in July 2012, so very compfy beds and well arranged in the room, big lockers (you need a padlock though), showers are clean and toilets too, you get free coffee and tea in the morning (breakfast is 4.50€), there is a kitchen with microwaves, fridge and freezer. The kitchen is linked to the main lounge and there is a TV. In terms of security, it is very well organised. You have an electric card which you use to enter the bilding for access to the lift, also for each floor, for the bedroom, for the toilets, for the showers and for the main lounge. I recommend this hostel because of its good quality/price ratio (17 € a night) and for people who are not only accompanied but also for those who come alone !

Disliked: Not very much to say about the negative sides of the hostel. Maybe just that the atmosphere of the place is not so animated, you can meet people but it lacks in some warmth to it ! There are few electricity plugs in the rooms but you can rent out for 1 € a night an electricity link to get your electricity plug next to each bed to work. Otherwise you also have electricity plugs in the breakfast room and main lounge.

Liked: This hostel is located only a few blocks from the main train station and close to the center of town. There are lots of places to eat and check out near by, The hostel is clean and the lockers are large. It is a real buy for the price.

Disliked: The use of the key card is good buy overdone for getting into the toilet and etc once you are into the hostel. Otherwise, it is fine. This is a small matter.

Liked: Free coffee and tea in the morning was a plus. It was also very safe,clean and the beds were very comfy with plenty of bathrooms.

Disliked: I can't really put my finger on why I didn't love it. I guess it doesn't have a very warm vibe. Everything is white, and the entrance hall is all bright techno lighting. I think it would be really great for a backpacker who loves to party, but just not very homely, almost a bit clinical.

Liked: Close to main train station

Disliked: This is not a female friendly hostel, there were no bins in the en-suite or general use toilets, the mixed shared showers were basically see through glass and the hostel is mostly male dominated. I would not recommend this hostel for a lone female traveller. Also the wifi was very slow most of the time. Also it needs an age limit our dorm was full of old men.

Disliked: First, is not on the right side of the street, but on the LEFT. The atmosphere is a little annoying, looks like a night club, lights, decoration, etc. It's not cozy.

Disliked: The unhelpfullness and un friendly staff! I have never experienced such rude staff. Things kept breaking - the showers the microwave and the wifi! The kitchen only has one facility to cook with an that broke! Our food got stolen and the atmospeare was terrible.
