There is one tiny downside to our LOCATION: we are located slap bang in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! Anyhow, we don't think that it is that dangerous and the hostel has a HIGH safety standard. However, if you don't feel comfortable staying in this area, feel free to book somewhere else.

If this isn't a problem, you'll discover many upsides to our location:
- 3 mins walk from the train station
- 10 mins walk to the museums/river bank
- 15 mins walk to the city centre (shopping street)
And - we promise - you'll find the best international take-away food just around the corner.

Look out for our LAST MINUTE SPECIALS (each bed 19,-€ one day before arrival), all you can eat free breakfast and our winter specials (hot soup, mulled wine, long movie nights, xmas market tours).

If you have further questions, contact our lovely office team Elena, Ronja and Sandra. They are always happy to help you.
See you in a tick!!

  1. Alana From Canada On November 30, -0001

    The place was clean with lost to do and offer. I was able to do my laundry there and have a good breakfast. The only down side was the location. It is real close to the train station and restaurants, but the one block surrounding it was a bit rough so there is security to get into the hostel.

  2. Youssef From England On November 30, -0001

    Absolutely loved the stay here. The hostel is very clean and tidy. The services offered are wonderful and the staff are very helpful and suggested further things we could do. Enjoyed the atmosphere and enjoyed the stay.

  3. Jan From Poland On November 30, -0001

    I recommend!

  4. Jamilya From Kazakhstan On November 30, -0001

    It was a great time in Frankfurt and in five hostels particularly. Thw location is also great and is safe but I had doubts when going out late at night, because it's right in the red district. The staff were friendly and helpful. I also met nice people during a party (the parties are usual, organised by the hostel and are good, they offer free drinks if you drink alcohol) There are many nationalities staying in the hostel, so it's also good international environment.

  5. Kashif From Pakistan On November 30, -0001

    Great experience at this hostel. Staff is very friendly and the most important thing is, they can communicate in English.

  6. Ting-Chun From Taiwan On November 30, -0001

    Big and clean room stay very comfortably ,I like here

  7. Fabian From Germany On November 30, -0001

    Nice service, nice people, everything is clean. All you can eat breakfast(if you stay 3nights or longer even for free). Very nice lobby. 11/10 would come again!

  8. marco From Italy On November 30, -0001

    Stayed her just for a night, but really appreciated this place. Rooms were clean, personnel was very kind, nice people inside. Thank you

  9. siphesihle From South Africa On November 30, -0001

    Everything was great but the rooms were just too hot at night!!!

  10. Cristóbal From Chile On November 30, -0001

    Very good experience in 5 elements hostel. The hostel was clean, the location is extremely close to the main station of trains and this fact simplify your life when you has arrived. With my wife stayed at private room at the 7th floor and the room was big enough. The only detail was that the elevator's engine was close to our room and made some noise at night. But apart from that, everything was fine. We highly recommend it.

  12. Mira From Austria On November 30, -0001

    Everything was in a good state of maintanance! The Wifi was good, the breakfast was great, the common room was super comfortable and friendly. In the common room there is free tee and coffee all day long! (Which is really great in the winter time) I'm definitely coming again! (The only thing annoying was that sometimes the electronic key didn't work, but you just have to go to the 24h reception and they activate the key again. This happened to me two times in 4 days)

  13. Jang From South Korea On November 30, -0001

    This hostel is located in Red Light District. Just a little bit uncomfortable to go around. No locker nor safe in the room. But, there's a big drawer for a latch.

    Amazing hostel near the main station. The staff was very kind and the 24/7 reception hours made it extra convenient to check in and out.

  17. Karolina From Germany On November 30, -0001

  19. Gibyrlu Ma From Philippines On November 30, -0001

    The location is strategic within the red light district. The staffs are very courteous and very friendly. Very clean...

  20. Chau Minh From Vietnam On November 30, -0001

    It was a really nice place to stay, fun and very convenient even though the hostel is in centre of red distric. Very good hostel. I was initialy worried a bit about it's position in red distric but in fact it was very safe when I was there. I am an sigle female traveller and always went back to the hostel at mid night but nothing happened, but anyway you should still look around and avoid any trouble guys. That's all.
