Good service, not good neighbourhood
I decided to stay in the hostel at the last minute. The reception was very comprehensive and gave me 2 hours earlier check-in. The locker provided was safe. Lack of air-conditioning system (it was quite hot in Frankfurt). The area where the hostel is located has lots of drug users, which makes me feel unsafe. Although it's well located (the heart of the city centre)

Close to hbf, average stay
Stay was ok, just one night with my brother. We knew about the location being in the red light district, not an issue since we chose this for the proximity to the hbf. The staff that checked us in was not friendly at all, smiled at the two guest ahead of us and when it was our turn she was dull and expressionless. The bathrooms and showers were shared and were in an ok condition, just like at a dormitory at school. We had a private room and I’m glad I booked that for the privacy.

The room had a bad smell of feet. The area around the hostel is very sketchy.
