Liked: clean

Disliked: This place is awful. Hostel is closed during the day, so if you arrive before 3pm you'll have to sit outside the building with your luggage. If you're sick or need to stay in bed during a multi-day stay, you'll be kicked out. Rooms are small, no towels given, and wifi is cut off during the night and morning. Very expensive for crappy service and amenities. The owner will also try scaring you into paying extra for a locker, making comments about how people will try to steal your stuff. Location is also bad, very far from anything good.

Liked: - location, easy to reach from central station by bus (however cost you an extra couple of euros compared to hostel at the station) - the host seems like a nice guy, willing to give directions - bathroom was clean

Disliked: - It was very noisy (caused by the host & his friends hanging out in the kitchen) until 1am - the beds are not good and did not smell like they'd been cleaned - they charge you extra for paying with credit card - you cannot drop your garbage (food items) anywhere in the hostel, so you have to go outside to dump it at the busstation - you cannot charge certain electronics, as it is forbidden in the hostel - got in trouble for charging a notebook - i did not feel safe, as doors cannot be locked

15 October 2013

Liked: It had a cute bar-cafe area. The rooms were decorated well.

Disliked: The lockers were for a fee, and there was a large table and 4 chairs in the middle of a room with 3 bunkbeds, and 2 hospital beds folded up, so it was very congested with 5 people in the room. Checkout was 10am a little early and check'in is only between 1500 and 1800, so really a narrow window. The workers were outside in the bar area discussing finances and other stuff in loud voices and it could be heard throughout the whole hostel. The girl who worked there was trying to be helpful and a bit friendly.

Liked: Cleanest hostel ever stayed. It may seem far from the city centre by foot, but very convenient with tram, which you should be making use of in Frankfurt.

Disliked: The owner do put quite a lot of effort to keep the place clean, safe, and fair for all the visitors. In another word, there are quite many written & unwritten rules to follow; not allowed in the hostel between 10am - 3pm, shower only once / day, must not stay on balcony after 9pm, too much electric equipments and food aren't welcomed.

Liked: Has a very at home sort of feeling, very cozy and comfortable.

Disliked: The only complaint I could possibly have is that you have to leave at 10 in the morning for cleaning, but it forced me to go out and see the town which is great, so it turned out to be a good thing. I just wouldn't recoomend it for people who like to sleep in.

Liked: Frankfurt Central Hostel was very small and we were the only customers for most of our stay. The place was very tidy and well-kept, rooms were nicely decorated and the overall impression was fresh and modern. Our host was very friendly and helpful the whole stay. The neighborhood was pleasant and getting to the city center by tram extremely easy (the tram stop is right outside the hostel door). Overall we had a nice stay.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The place is extremely clean and organised. The beds are comfortable, there is free wifi and the internet signal is very good. The owner takes care of everything himself and he is very friendly and likes to help you with whatever you need. The location is very good.

Disliked: The place has only one female and one male toilet. There are several rules, some of them are quite strange, such as: you can't charge your laptop or camera battery in the hostel, you cannot wake up late, because from 10 to 14h you can't stay in there, while they are cleaning the place. Also, the owner tells younot to shower in the morning, because theres only one bathroom and when I tried to he started knocking on the door, telling me to let other people use the toilet. There's no kitchen.
