Hostels in Frankfurt

Sleep inexpensive, meet other travellers

Hostels in Frankfurt provide centrally located, budget accommodation for travellers. Not only for backpackers, Frankfurt hostels are great places for everyone young at heart.
Meet other travellers, join the fun.

Why spend a substantial chunk of your travel budget on expensive hotel rooms? After all, you are in Frankfurt for sightseeing, shopping, or visiting a trade fair, so you won't spend much time in your hotel anyway.

Where are the hostels in Frankfurt, and what do they offer?

Both hostels I introduce on this page are located close to the main train station, also only a few minutes from the main shopping areas, the old town and major Frankfurt attractions.

Well, don't be scared when someone tells you the hostels are in Frankfurt's red light district. Although Kaiserstrasse and the district "Bahnhofsviertel" are often equalised with being the red-light quarter, the scene is only located in a few streets north of the Kaiserstrasse these days.
The entire area is totally safe during the day, and even at night, if you use common sense. Get recommendations from the friendly staff at the hostels in Frankfurt about the best bars and places you can go at night, and you'll be fine.

Just opposite the train station, in a beautiful old house at the beginning of Kaiserstrasse, the hostel offers dorm beds and private rooms for you.
