Disliked: At first, I had to stay in line for 30 min only to check in, then I got a room without any windows (!!!), the TV promised was so small, I really couldn´t see anything, the room itself made me think I was in a hospital, only not as clean as one... creepy atmosphere. I´ve been to many hostels and hotels and pretty low maintenenced but this one was the worst! and the stuff didn´t make it any better...

Liked: The hostel in basic is ok. When I stayed it was the second cheapest and it is fair enough for that. It is clean and ok. My room was looking to the back yards garden and it was both a nice view and bright in the mornings. It right by the train and 15 mins walk distance to the main station. The market, an internet cafe and some economic but good places to eat are in 5 min walking distance. The stuff is trying its best to help -about the problems which are about the hostel :)- There is no noise at nights as the corridors are not well fit for making noise :PP :) A safe accomodation place which man can be grateful for.

Disliked: Need to pay much for side services. Linens should be bought - no cash refund. Wireless in rooms and loundry is paid. The kitchen door is locked and they request a 20 euro deposit etc. The locks have 5euro deposit. The hostel doesnt enlight you about your surroundings and where to go as the other hostels that i ve been to. So you are a little bit more on your own. It is not a cosy place.

Liked: The room was very big and clean, I stayed in 6 person dorm with own private bathroom. I had the room all to myself as I was the only person who booked that night so it was really good.

Disliked: The heater is not warm enough and had to go through a big parking space to reach the lobby. Its slightly far from the station

Liked: Friendly stuff and services. Very polite and helpful.

Disliked: My room was 232. This side of the building is directly facing the train station and therefore it was pretty noisy even in the night. I suggest taking earplugs with you if you are prone to noise.

Liked: The location is just 30 second from the train station and its easy to get anywhere to the tourist spots. Its clean and its Really easy to find. Its quiet. The Staff were helpful. The bathroom is inside the Room. So No neeD to get out of the Room IF you want to shower. The good thing is also that the shower Room Nd the toilet are seperate.

Disliked: For the price which is quite above average. It supposed to include breakfast but it didn't. Breakfast cost 6€. And free Internet only in the lobby. If you want to have wifi access in your dorm/room, it cost 5€ for 24 hours access. In other hostels it's free of charged.

Liked: Good location right near a train station so it's very easy to get around Frankfurt. Rooms/facilities are clean and the staff were helpful and spoke good english.

Disliked: For such a large hostel there wasn't much of an atmosphere, everyone in the common rooms was on a laptop or a phone and just stuck to themselves. Also because it is part hotel as well there were a lot of families and children there, made it not really feel like a hostel at times.

Liked: This place is super clean, the dorm rooms are of a hotel standard, modern and have all facilities needed. Bonus is the beds, pillows and dunna is super plush, perfect to snuggle up to in the cold environment (outdoors not in) Friendly staff and large lounge/hang out room. 5 minute train ride into the centre of Frankfurt with the pick up and drop off point directly infront of the hostel. Conscience bliss.

Disliked: The atmosphere is slightly lacking, because it is also a hotel it doesn't not have a super young, creative vibe to it. It is professionally set out, large and doesn't not bring a feeling of comming together.

Liked: This was the best Hostel I have ever been in my life, everything is pervect, the location is just 2 minutes by train far from the town ceter, everything is clean, staff is so helpful with answering properly every question you have. I would really want to say thank you guys for this beautiful place. It is worthy to pay this money.To me this was 4 star hotel quality, you have shampo and toilet papers, the shower is so nice as well with a lot of water and hot 24 hr.

Disliked: The only think I did not like is Internet, the computers were so slow you just spend your money it takes ages until you can log on in a page. So if they change the computers or the speed of internet, also you could open just one page at a time, if you need to do something with more then one page it was impossible.
