I visited during an expensive week in Frankfurt, so price was ok and I liked the chilly atmosphere inside. The room was nice and clean and I liked the “industrial” design of it, other than the one staff member, the rest were nice and helpful.
One staff member, the guy with the long hair, who handed me my room key was especially rude and terrible. He was already being rude, rolling his eyes, and had a tone with the people in front of me on the line. I booked a private double room since I wanted the privacy and I was having a friend coming over to visit at my room, and I simply asked him if he can let my friend come up directly or if I would have to come pick him up from reception, and he directly said that it would not be possible, visitors are not allowed and I should not invite anyone. I insisted, pointing out that my room has the same price whether I’m alone inside or with another person, but he rudely insisted and repeated himself that this was not possible, I insisted back and then he said he can “make me an exception”, which’s still rude since it should not be an exception if I am paying for this anyways. When my friend arrived, he was as rude to him and asked him for his ID, then told him he will be keeping his ID with him and he must pick it up when he leaves again. Terrible staff member and so unfortunate given the place itself was nice and chill.
Very good equipment and clean bathrooms. Very very good Breakfast and good coffee.
nothing all was nice
Staff was nice..!!
The neighborhood seemed seriously dangerous, even in daylight. Was scared to go out. I also found a bedbug in the room, but I guess this is common in hostels in Frankfurt.
Location is good. Staffs are nice.
I don't like it when I had to ring the doorbell outside and signal them to unlock the 3rd door for me to get into the stair/elevator area.
I like the staff who are really helpful and got real interest to explain u best tips for traveling in Frankfurt ❤️ I’ll never forget Edu...and Spanish guys, you re awesome and unexceptional!
I didn’t like location of hostel, it’s placed on the street of “red lights” and it’s dangerous enough to be on the road back at the night. One night I even heard the shooting of drug addicted gang, it was sooo unpleasant and unsafe. It’s better not to travel with children there.
