No more aching backs! We offer new, comfortable mattress in all rooms (20cm spring mattresses, and 16cm soft foam mattresses) to ensure you have the most comfortable stay with us.

We have breakfast every morning from 7:30-12 for 6,50 EUR. Our breakfast is vegetarian, and vegan friendly as we offer a variety of breakfast foods, ranging from different breads, locally sourced meats (local sausage & bacon), fruits, vegetables, cheeses, hummus, lentil spreads, yogurts, nuts, cereals, muesli, jams, and more! We're also proud of the fact that the majority of our foods come without packaging, as a way to help reduce waste.
Breakfast is included from the 3rd day of your stay

Check our website and Facebook for special events, special food offers, and news.

There is one tiny downside to our LOCATION: we are located smack dab in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! Anyhow, it is NOT at all dangerous and our hostel has a HIGH safety standard. We only mention this so you don't find yourself surprised upon arrival. Our neighbourhood is home to some of the best food and clubs Frankfurt has to offer. In fact, the New York Times even wrote an article on our upcoming neighbourhood in 2016! However, if you don't feel comfortable staying in this area, feel free to book somewhere else.

If this isn't a problem, you'll discover many upsides to our location:
- 3 min walk from the train station
- 10 min walk to the museums/river bank
- 15 min walk to the city centre, old city, and main shopping area
And - we promise - you'll find the best international food in our neighbourhood!

Look out for our LAST MINUTE SPECIALS (each bed 19,- Euro one day before arrival), and our seasonal specials.

Want to see what is going on at the hostel now? Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact one of our lovely office team members: Esther, Agne, and David. They're always happy to help you.
See you soon!!

Location Information

We are centrally located in a safe area in Red Light District, between the main train station (3min walk) and the city centre (10min walk). If you think you could feel offended or insecure in the Red Light District, we advise you to book your stay elsewhere.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 2 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
