Traveling alone sometimes can be lonely, this place will definitely boost your morale! Great atmosphere, great food, people and overall experience. For being in one of the sketchy parts of town it's actually a really nice place inside. Rooms are nice, bathrooms are nice, 10/10. Make sure you meet your roommates and exchange your experiences!

2 months into traveling, my travel buddy booked us a shared dormitory at the hostel. We were a bit hesitant due to the fact that the hostel is literally located in the Red Light district in Frankfurt (think casinos, brothels complete with massive bouncers) and being two girls we were a bit freaked. Having stayed there now, I have to...

I booked single apartment room for a transit stay over night. Initially I was skeptical but despite the location the room was big enough and not very expensive. The common kitchen was maintained very clean. The staff were friendly and the morning breakfast at the lounge is relaxing. Social activities like games night were planned in the evening during my...

The rooms were great, relatively spacious and clean. The hostel has an excellent location, with just a few minutes to shopping areas as well. Staff there were nice and helpful. This is definitely a good hostel for the location, the service, the cleanliness, and of course the money paid for is reasonable.

Stayed 3 nights here in a 4 bed room. Really clean and modern rooms. Bunks were comfortable with personal powerpoint and light bedside (always a nice treat). Good free wifi throughout. Luggage storage was under the bottom bunk in a lockable trunk. Rooms could only be accessed by keycard, so very secure. Bathrooms were clean and had good shower pressure,...

I've stayed in several of the hostels in Frankfurt but this is the one I keep coming back to! The location is kind of sketchy in the evening because it's in the red light district, but the staff are very careful to warn you about it. It's about a ten minute walk (if that) from the main train station, which...

Unbelievable place! Great Lounge, clean rooms, competent and polid staff, 24 hours reception and also great food to buy if you decide to eat in the hostel. I'm just sure that I will never sleep in other place in Frankfurt!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Isn't it strange? Germany's biggest international airport, lots of interesting destinations on the doorstep, but hard to find a bed for a backpacker? From summer 2008 on these times are over! Then, the Five Elements Hostel will open its doors to the public. In a beautiful turn of the century building right in the center of Frankfurt, we created a quality hostel, from scratch, stylish and brand new. The Five Elements Hostel is wholly dedicated to you, the traveler. ... more   less
