Honestly, it’s no wonder that travellers come here time and time again.
This is the place to be if you want fun activities, a 24/7 bar and tons of freebies.
It also happens to be one of the hostels near Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof train station.
There’s actually a lot to mention, so here’s a handy list of inclusions to show you:
FREE tea & coffee, WiFi, activities
FREE homemade dinners

Breakfast: No free breakfast, sorry. A full spread can be enjoyed for 6,50 EUR.
Dorm rooms come with 3, 4, 6 and 8-beds – choose the size that suits you best.
Of course with every great hostel comes with a female-only dorm. This one has 6-beds.
Otherwise, enjoy privacy in a single, twin or double private option.
One good thing to note is that there are no privacy curtains here. The personal bed light helps heaps, though.
Location: Don’t tell your parents – you’ll be sleeping in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! One of the best areas for food and clubs. The city centre is a 15-minute walk, the main train station is less than 5.
We recommend booking your hostel as early as possible! All of Frankfurt best hostels are popular; especially in high-season. To make sure you end up in those stylish and good hostels, secure your room/ bed as soon as you have your travel dates fix.
