    Makes you feel safe in a non-safe area of the city. Lovely people working there. Would definetely go back there when visiting Frankfurt. Nice when travelling with friends or by yourself. Prices are affordable also

    Cool full service hostel. Clean, convenient location 2 blocks from main train station. Food, bar, activities available onsite. Helpful staff & interesting area. Close to everything and a good value for the money. No problem to stay here again when back in town

    We were planning to visit Strasbourg & Colmar from Frankfurt. Found this hostel to be quite cheap & affordable. Decent bunker beds and always on party mode with good selection of drinks. Can stay in this if you are a thrifty traveller.
