Its a very nice hostel. The place was rebuilt and everything is brand new. The staff is helpfull, very good location, just a few steps from the central station where you can take public transportation for the hole city or anywhere else. Very nice place for a low cost.

Yes, it´s not that expensive (at least for Munich). Yes, it´s definetely centrally located. But rooms are as one might expect in a prison cell, only thing is we saw no guards and nobody locked the door. But one of us preferred to sleep on the floor rather than to trust the bunk bed. Breakfast was OK. So for a...

This hostel has the most ideal location, 5 minute walk to main train station. The rooms are nice. The hostel is recently renovated so it was clean and each room has a sink. The staff were friendly. Free Wi-fi was a plus. This is a place worth staying for budget minded travellers.

We booked a last minute hotel for just one night in Munich. It was 62 EURO about 20 bucks cheaper than the cheapest room available at a hotel. The location seemed shady but we got in really late at night. The room seemed clean and we had a private bathroom. It was both me and my husband's first time living...

Wonderfully placed hostel local to Munchen Station. Very, very clean and friendly staff. It would be worth saying the entrance is down an alleyway off the main street as we missed it the first time.
