Lonely Planet wrote : Housed in one of the few buildings around the Hauptbahnhof to survive WWII, this atmospheric hostel-hotel oozes history with every dangling chandelier and creaky staircase. The bar is a delightful haunt, and the 3,20-a-drink happy hour 4:30pm to 8:30pm) is understandably popular. Despite having 200 beds spread over 58 well-kept rooms, this place is often full, so book ahead!
We're located just 100m from the main train station and within easy walking distance of most of Munich's most central sights (Marienplatz, Residenz and co). The main station is also the local transport hub and therefore provides excellent access to suburban sights (BMW, Allianz arena, Nymphenburg) as well as regional sights (Neuschwanstein castle, Alps, Salzburg etc).
The hostel is housed in an historic building, one of only very few buildings in the vicinity of the main train station to have survived WWII fully intact. It was originally one of Munich's very first luxury hotels (the Astoria).
We have FREE high-speed Wi-Fi in all rooms, FREE internet terminals, FREE city maps, FREE lockers and FREE luggage storage. Our staff will be delighted to answer any questions you have about Munich and give advice on restaurants, nightlife etc.
You can enjoy the privacy of a single or double room, or make friends in one of the small or large dorms. Bed linen is included and the beds are made for you.
Please note that we only accept guests between the ages of 18 and 35 in the 12-bed dorm and 12-bed female dorm..
Every room (other than the 10/12 bed dorms) is equipped with its own wash-basin. The showers and toilets are either to be found inside the rooms or close-by in the corridor. (The bathroom for the 12 bed rooms is down one flight of stairs .. ca 20 secs walk).
Please note that the breakfast is not included in the price of your booking. The fill-your-boots all-you-can-eat continental breakfast buffet is available from 7am to 11am for a bargain EUR 6.90.
Please also note: we do not have a guest kitchen. We would like to but local Health and Safety laws make it impossible. We do, however, have supermarkets and cheap restaurants all around us which we'll be happy to point you in the direction of. We do offer free tea and a microwave.
Our popular bar selling Munich's best beer (and that's saying something) from only EUR 3,20 during our Happy Hours, which run from 4:30pm to 8:30pm. We also serve dangerously cheap cocktails. At weekends we often host events such as live music and karaoke. On Mondays we have a pub quiz and our large-screen TV shows major sporting events, including NFL.
We have cheap laundry facilities plus board games and a book exchange.

We look forward to seeing you in Munich !
