Welcoming vibe,great breakfast,good free coffee,bbq dinners

We have been travelling with our 9 year old daughter around Europe and usually choose hotels over hostels.We absolutely loved our stay at Five Elements in Frankfurt.The staff were so friendly,the breakfast was fantastic and was free for kids.We stayed in a four bed apartment but didn't even use our kitchen as there was free tea and (good) coffee in the lounge and both nights they had a bbq dinner where you could have dinner for only a few euro.The room was clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchen.Would definitely stay here again.Close to main train station.

Great lobby, stuff, free wifi

five elements is downtown, just 3 minutes from central train station. the stuff is very good, very helpful and efficient. i didn't try breakfast, it is available buffet in as all you can eat menu for 4 euro, it seemed very good offer. the lobby is a big lively place, for a drink, work on your laptop, or just relax. rooms are big, i can only comment that it is one toilet for males and one for females per floor(about 3-4 rooms) it could be better to have a second one per sex. in general a good value for money for budget travelers, downtown fankfurt.

Breakfast, Room Comfort, Bathrooms

The area around the hostel isn't really nice. But still feeling safe. Its very close to the railway station. The hostel itself was one of the nicest I have ever stayed. Very nice Bathrooms on each floor and restrooms. Awesome prices for food and drinks. Pool and other games for free. watching DVDs also possible. Frankfurt itself is not that worth staying for a while. But I would recommend the hostel to anyone.

Overally nice”

I arrived Frankfurt around at 21pm though, I could arrive the place just in 5mins from the main train station. It is exactly located in the walking distance from the center, and I dunno why so many guys are walking around the hostel and near the street. Well you can see the reason when you get there. But when I first entered the room, there was a bug omg but he runaway as soon as I turned on the light.

OK Hostel”

Friendly staff

A Quite OK Hostel for a few days styover in Frankfurt. The Hostel is quite near the Centrla Railway station. It is also only a walking distanse to the Frankfurt exibishion area. One factor to be aware of is that the the room or bed price that you have to pay, if you make reservation and payment at arrival can vary quite much, as their prices are "set dynamically". This means that the prices can be as much as double compared with "normal" in the high season. It can be a good idea to make an reserwation and an agreement about price in advance. If you make an reservation via Agoda it is a good idea to print out the receipt that show the room rate and how much you paid. To have such a document to show can some times simplify a few things.

Friendly staff, explained everything when you arrived. With a large kitchen to cook, perfect for solo traveller and backpacker. Free coffee & tea all day. Common area is spacious. The place is very clean and there are power outlets next to every bed. Most importantly, it is just 5 mins to the Frankfurt central station (train), which makes your travel to nearby cities a piece of cake.

Great Hostel! Great Service, Great Security!”

secure, comfortable

was very nice and pleasant stay. i had to book another night last minute and they were very accomodating. the hostel, which really should be called a hotel is super secure - 24hour reception, and a "buzz in" only entrance to the accomodation section of the building meaning no one who doesnt live there can go in. lockers under the bed to put your stuff. i happily left my laptop in there for 4 days and no problems. you can padlock them you see. cons - redlight district, but this was not an issue at all for me. im a guy, didnt get hassled at all. no worries. noisy - the hostel, was extremely noisy, due to work going on and also loud people. this didnt bother me, but for accurate review purposes, i thought i should include this.

nice breakfast buffet inlcuded, very clean, friendly staff

This hostel is very clean. The bathrooms are cleaned three times a day. The beds are ok. They make noise and shake a bit if somebody goes on top. It's very calm though. I haven't heard any street noise or someone from the next room. A nice breakfast buffet with fruits, bread and cereals (and sometimes waffles) is included. There are different activities every day and the staff is really friendly and motivated. The hostel has a nice lounge with a TV, a bar, which also provides nice snacks, and a tabletop soccer. Although, the hostels is located right in the middle of the red light district, I always felt safe. Really good hostel. I would always go there again.

I enjoyed staying at the hostel, and wished I was able to take advantage of the daily activities they offered. My only disappointment was with the rooms: the room I stayed in smelled pretty bad. Besides this, I felt my things were safe at the hostel and it was a short walk from the main train station.

Great staff but disappointed in room”

I booked a double room at the hostel and paid over 60 euros per night, but when I got there I found out they had no A/C. Normally this would not be a problem but it was quite warm in Frankfurt and the room was hot and humid. I couldn't even leave the windows open at night because being in the red light district it was loud outside and cigarette smoke was wafting up from the street. I went and asked reception about whether there were other air con rooms and the lady at reception said they don't have any right now but will be getting it installed next week. She was really really nice and let me borrow the reception fan. I went down the next day and asked if it was possible to check out early and have a refund for the second night because I couldn't take being in a room that humid and I couldn't keep the window open for stated reasons. I'm not going to pay that much money for a room with no A/C when I can find a hotel for just a little bit more. They were super accommodating and agreed to provide me a refund for the second night, so I checked out early. Overall this hostel was great but I didn't want to handle the temperature and the high humidity in the room. I woke up covered in sweat and I didn't even use a blanket. That's not the experience I wanted for the amount of money I paid for the room. I'd stay there again once they have the A/C installed or during the fall or winter when the weather is cold and I can keep the windows closed.
