Munich is the capital city of Bavaria. Within the city limits, Munich has a population of more than 1.3 million, making it the third most populous city in Germany. Many travelers to Munich are absolutely stunned by the quality of the architecture. Although it was heavily damaged by allied bombing during World War II, many of its historic buildings have been rebuilt and the city center appears mostly as it did in the late 1800s including the famous Rathaus.
Visitors can count themselves lucky (or possibly unlucky) since Munich is home to everything quintessentially Bavarian. Munich is specifically well-known for Weißwurst, a breakfast sausage that is traditionally eaten as a late breakfast along with a Weissbierand available in restaurants until noon. If you only fancy a snack, almost every butcher sells Leberkässemmeln, a white roll filled with a thick warm slice of "Leberkäse". Which, despite its name contains absolutely no liver nor cheese, but consists of a mixture of veal, pork, spices and a hint of lemon zest baked in an open pan and traditionally served with a sweet and grainy mustard. They tend to be very cheap (around €1.50), quite delicious, and filling. If Bavarian food doesn't sound appetizing, you're in luck because Munich is host to plenty of other international restaurants including, among others; Afghan, Chinese, French, Indian, Irish, Italian, Greek, Lebanese, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish and Turkish, as well as the typical American fast food.
Despite all the local dishes which are meat based, it is possible to get vegetarian food in some of the main restaurants and indeed there are some Vegetarian restaurants in Munich (one of which is very "upscale").
Munich also has numerous fresh markets, which can be a tasty, expedient and inexpensive alternatives to restaurants.
If you happen to be unfortunate enough to miss Oktoberfest, you can live through a sanitized, safer version at any of Munich's many beer gardens. There are countless beer gardens scattered around the city. The coffee culture is also very strong, especially during the summer months, but is often overlooked by most visitors.
You have to be at least 18 years old to get into most clubs and discos in Munich. Always have your passport or ID card with you, and a driver's licence may be okay, too. Some clubs have "Ü30-Parties", where you should be over 30 to get in, but usually you have no problems if you are over 25. In most places, it is ok to wear jeans and sneakers. Haidhausen is the popular nightlife district being home to Munich "Kultfabrik" and "Optimolwerk" clubbing neighborhoods. Munich abounds with accommodation for every type of traveler. The area directly around the Hauptbahnhof (train station) has numerous youth hostels, and upscale hotels like Le Meridien and Sofitel. Schillerstraßer just a hundred meters away has many small hotels too; the street looks fine in the day, but the strip bars and cabarets become much more visible at night. There are also plenty of hotels and youth hostels in other districts of Munich particularly Schwabing and the Ostbahnhof area. Be aware that the fares can vary significantly. Usually you have to pay higher prices during the summer months. Finding affordable accommodation might be difficult when there are trade fairs in the town and especially during the 2 weeks of the Oktoberfest.

Great value for money but building is a bit old fashioned and neighborhood is not the best.

István From Hungary On November 30, -0001

Probably the only things missing were some glasses to drink from and a couple of towels. On the other hand, cleanliness, location (3-5 minutes from the train station and about 7-8 from the centre) and especially the beds and sheets were flawless, and extremely comfortable. Also, the staff were helpful and very nice. There is also free wi-fi. Plus, the bathrooms and toilets are lockable. These put together, price/value rate is unmissable. All in all, I thoroughly recommend it.

Location and breakfast were very nice. And friendly environment. But the facilities were little bit old. So I don't like the environment. But I'll really recommend for others.

Shariellys From Dominican Republic On November 30, -0001

Good for the price. Also I wish I had a place for putting the soap or shower gel at the showers.

For a hotel in one of the most expensive german cities which is located quite centrally it's a quite alright money for value ratio. The mattresses were a bit gooey for my taste though.

The hostel is near to the bus station but far from the city center. It’s not clean and no staff for showering. The room has no lockers which is weird.

Andrea From South Africa On November 30, -0001

Me and my friend stayed for two nights and really liked it, we felt safe and comfortable in the female only dorms. The beds were really comfortable and the staff were really helpful. The breakfast was really good and worth the money for all you can eat. It was in a very good place because it was only about 15 minutes to the bus and train station and there is a shop right around the corner if you need to buy food. We really enjoyed our time there and would stay there again if we went back.

Emma From England On November 30, -0001

The worst, most disgusting place I’ve ever stayed. Not to mention an absolute rip off. We stayed at a super nice and clean hotel closer to Oktoberfest the following night for less money. Steer clear of this place.

Brendan From Spain On November 30, -0001

his is a campsite specifically designed for young, carefree, Oktoberfest goers who want to have the most amount of fun while spending the least amount of money. Upon arrival, I was greeted with a free beer and a beer bong. For an additional 10 Euro a night, you get UNLIMITED beer and Sangria. Good times. But more important than the free beer, the people that are drawn to this sort of place are one of a kind. You'll definitely make some lifelong friends. I came here alone but went home with a lot of new friends! Highly recommend it for anyone who loves a good party.
