Reviews for Backpackers

It's so nice to stay for 2-3 days for travel around munich.
Hostel review
person icon muted
The hostel is well accessible, what we missed was a clean kitchen and the impossibility to watch the match of Munich against Manchester in the common room
Our stay went well, the calm and cleanliness of the dormitory were at the meeting.

Nice room for 6 girls but our door had difficulty functioning with the passes. Possibility to leave your luggage and free drinks on arrival. About 15 minutes walk from the center of Munich, convenient, 5 minutes from the train station. The shared showers are not super clean compared to other hostels but there is plenty of space, however no hooks and such to put your things.

Right next to the Hauptbanhof and the Oktoberfest grounds and the room was much nicer and cleaner than I had expected for a Hostel. The staff were friendly enough and helpful.
