    Great location but a bit noisy ”

    It is just opposite to the central station. The city centre is within walking distance. There are some drunk ppl and sex inn nearby. It is still fine for girls who travel alone, but always be careful. The facilities are average. No windows in the kitchen and no locker in the room.

    This hostel is suitable for backpacker. If you want to something like cozy place, good lighting, clean this is not the right place. The ceiling is unfinished looks like old and little bit darker. BUT, the staff is very friendly, that is the strong point. Overall, i like this hostel with note.

    I just sleep one night, and i think room is tidy. The security is special, you don't have a key/card to open the lobby door, need to ask the bar for door open. But it's ok, not too trouble. Also there are a special food-share time at the bar, they cook delicious.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Social but tiny rooms”

    Common space is social, the staff doesn't care about you. You tell them the luggage room doesn't open with the key card they let you go downstairs again. You tell them again it doesn't work and they tell you why don't you book a five star hotel. I need to remind them that it is their job to do this. Totally annoying. Bad attitude. Moreover, even if you book a 3 dorm room it is crammed.

    Near Frankfurt HBF, good security”

    Location was pretty good in terms of proximity to the train stations and supermarkets. Staff were friendly and there were free luggage storage facilities - great for us as we had a late flight out. However do note that the hostel is located in the seedier part of town. We weren't ever approached or felt threatened in any way, and the door security was great (reception has to buzz you in), but it might be a point of consideration for some.

    If I were traveling alone or with no children, this facility would be ideal. The location was outside the big city, but is in walking distance to all the attractions and very close to the train station. The staff was great and the facility was regularly cleaned. The surrounding businesses are mostly strip clubs and bars. Not ideal for walking to and from the building at dark with children.
