“Nice base for exploring Munich on a budget”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

We stayed at The Tent during the last weekend of Oktoberfest. It was exceptionally busy, and despite the fact that we'd booked for a 6 man tent, we did struggle to find a spot that was big enough for it. It's a lovely site, but the actual camping area is quite small, and there doesn't seem to be a huge deal of organisation about it, so if you could go in a smaller tent, I'd recommend that, even better, don't bring a tent at all and use their communal camping areas which seem pretty well constructed. The campsite has an excellent cafe which sells really cheap continental breakfast, and later meals, and beer of course and the setting is great. It's well secluded by trees, and the communal camp fire is great. You need to get to the toilets and showers very early as it gets so very busy, but the 1am curfew is pretty good and allows campers to get some sleep. It's very well placed for getting to the tram stop and into town, and it's cheap most importantly. I would say though, if you are going in the car be aware that there is no onsite parking, we had to park on the street and carry all of our camping equipment into the site which was a complete pain. Also, not being familiar with the German road signs, we ended up with a parking fine, so please be aware of where you park on the roads. Other than that, it's a really good place for exploring the city on a budget.

After an overpriced stay at an unfriendly hostel we arrived at the Tent looking for alternative accomodation and we found an extremely friendly, well equipped Campsite/Hostel with cheap prices and excellent proximity to Munich center.

We camped and made use of the brilliant communal fire every night to sit around, chat and drink. The food they cooked there was well priced and delicious and the breakfasts fantastic too.

The only downside was that the showers were crazy (although perfectly fine) and that the Laundry section was closed for longer during the day than they had advertised, causing us to wait around for a significant portion of the day. Other than that I could find no fault with the place.

Free wi-fi too!

After our plans of staying with some friends of ours fell through when they went on a last-minute holiday, we were left scrambling for a place to stay, and since we were already at the bottom of funds and hadn't accounted for 2 more nights, we had to come up with a cheap option, fast.

Luckily, we had some other friends meeting up from Berlin that were already booked that told us about it, so we checked it out. For the price, I definitely think It's unbeatable!

It was barely 20 euros for 2 nights stay, and while the accommodations were a little spartan (we stayed in the bunk beds in the main tent), it is an easy recommendation for budget-minded travelers. The spot itself, as the name implies, consists mainly of one large tent with stacks of bunk beds throughout. The staff was very sure to make sure the quiet time of 1am was very well enforced, so you can still get a decent night's sleep (so long as you're not too much of a light sleeper). Up til the 1am curfew though, there was a bonfire and all sorts of travelers from all over hanging out. The place itself is pretty, lush with flowers and vegetation, and everyone we met was really cool.

So long as you're not overly troubled by sleeping in relatively close proximity to many people (in which case, why are you checking out a place called 'The Tent'??), this comes as an easy recommendation for the budget-minded traveler.

Bonus: It is 1 short block from a rail line that heads to the main city center, which then can connect straight to the airport, perfect if, like us, you're heading straight home from Munich.

The hostel is cheap, even compared to other hostels in Europe, which is awesome. If you want to stay in Munich on a very tight budget, this is a great option. But it's not without flaws.

My biggest problem was how far away it is from everything - it's a 25-30 minute tram ride to get to the old city. It is convenient to Nymphenberg Palace and the Botanical Gardens, but that's about it. And the hostel is a good 10 minute walk from the tram stop to boot.

I was somewhat disappointed in the food options, and the fact that you can't bring your own drinks. The bunkbeds are hard, the tent area is noisy, even during quiet hours due to people shuffling in and whispering loudly, and I was cold at night (it was in the mid-50s outside, easily that cold inside too). They do provide you with blankets, but since I had to use one for a pillow, that only left me with two.

All those complaints aside, the people who work there are the friendliest I've encountered in Germany, and very helpful. When we checked out early they refunded us for the extra night, which was awesome. The common areas are fun, particularly the small bonfire, and the wifi was appreciated if slow. A great place to meet other travelers for sure. The showers were hot.

If I were to go back, I'd probably chose the camping option, as I think I'd be more comfortable in my own tent with a little bit of privacy and a warm sleeping bag.

good alternative hostel. 15 minute tram ride away from main train station and city centre, so very easy to get around.
if you dont mind staying in a room with a lot of other people, then its a great hostel. very cheap homemade food on sight with a kitchen for you to cook yourself as well.
good common area, selling locally brewed beer at a very good price.
very relaxed atmosphere and was quite social, though the staff could have maybe done a bit more to integrate groups.
very helpful staff with free city tours every week.
would recommend
