I spent three nights with 5 other friends during the last weekend of the Oktoberfest (29th September – 3rd October) at this hostel. We had booked a 6-bed room with an en-suite bathroom. The arrival process was very easy and the gentlemen behind the reception very friendly and quick. However, each person had to pay a 52EUR cash deposit in... More

The hostel was very well layed out, had just about everything you need. A good kitchen, great facilities (pool table, foosball, bar, coffee machine, breakfast room, self laundry). It was very clean and the staff quite good, but the location for both getting into the centre of town and closeness to festival Halls was very good.

I've stayed here a few times and it is a standard, run of the mill hostel. Great for groups of friends. Large, good value hostel beds (outside of peak dates) with private bathrooms for each room and walking distance to the city centre and the park where Oktoberfest is held. It was very expensive for a hostel bed during Oktoberfest,... More

If your looking for a place to simply crash out and not one for your comforts (like me) then this place is fine for you. It's literally a 2 min walk to Oktoberfest and lots of bars around about aswell. Staff were fine but in the morning a cleaner came in without knocking to clean the bathroom and two items... More

An average busy hostel to meet new people and fellow travellers. We were on the 4th floor in a large mixed dorm. Appreciated the underbed lockers and the cards to put on the bed. Bathrooms were a bit grim. Bed was comfortable. Small silly complaint - randomly generated wifi passwords and usernames are printed out and need to be taken... More

Although a nice comfortable hostel with a trendy little bar, my two friends and I weren't too pleased with this hostel. The staff were nice but not very welcoming or helpful. Stayed here on a summer weekend and they couldn't even recommend where to go for a night out. The location was useless. Bad value for money. There was also... More

I booked this hotel for a party of twelve guys on a stag weekend. It is ideal for those just wanting a bed and shower. Conveniently located next to the underground and within walking distance from the main station (1.2km) it is recommended for those not wanting to spend lots of money. The staff were very helpful, spoke fluent English... More

The rooms were average size for a hostel, and the beds were comfortable, but this is the most expensive hostel I've stayed at, and it wasn't really anything special. Staff were lovely for the most part.
