Euro youth hostel is located on a side street, just 80meters from the main train station (on a quiet side street) it was ideal for us as we could easily walk around on most sites (Marienplatz is 15’ walk or 3’ by underground) but also ideal to catch any train to Dachau, other sites or to the airport. It is housed on a historical building that was built in 1880. It seems recently renovated as everything was tidy and clean.
The check in was quick, the staff at the reception friendly and helpful. The give you magnetic cards that you use not only to open/unlock your room door but also the main door on your floor which gives extra sense of security.
It is a hostel so we didn’t expect much from our room but it was big enough for the 3 of us, with a table, a sink and cabinets where you can lock your stuff if you share the room with others. Heating system was working properly.
There is shared bathroom/WC on the corridor, they were always tidy and clean. But you need to have your own towels (or rent one from reception), also a shower cap if you don’t want to wet your hair :)
Through out the hostel there is free Wi-Fi access.
As in many german hostels this one houses a pub, it’s the area where you will have breakfast in the morning (5e per person), typical buffet but lots of fresh fruits. Around the hostel you can find food stores but also cheap restaurants.
During the night the pub gets packed, there are good prices for beers (especially during happy hour) and pizza so lot of people from other hostels come here to have fun. There is a big screen for matches but also some nights you may catch a live band, we tried to see one but it was so crowded that we decided to go to another pub.
Directions: 80m from Hauptbahnhof
One of the best hostels in Munich is the Euro Youth Hotel with dorms in high season at £13 a night. I've stayed here, and it's pretty clean and has a good vibe going. It's near anything you'd want to see, however I found it to be pretty loud, and after a days traveling this could be somewhat annoying.
However i've heard great things from friends about a place called 'The Tent Munich' hostel which describes itself as the cheapest hostel in munich. It's a little odd though, it's like a campsite... 100 bed dorms! But if you're on a tight budget then this is the one.
Good luck and safe travels.
I stayed at the Euro Youth Hotel/Hostel on Oct 30-Nov. 1, 2007 and got checked into room 517.
My room was a single and came with a window with a fire-escape catwalk outside it. There was a tv with sat. cable with a desk and chair and a sink in one corner. The room was okay but I felt it had a moldy smell to it even with the window open but that was the only complaint I had with the room. The showers and toilets are down the hallway and I never had to wait to use either of them. There is an elevator to use instead of the stairs if you want.
The bar is a lively place at night and the common area has internet available and there is wi-fi available.
The breakfast was typical fare....cereal, milk, OJ, toast, coffee and rolls...nothing special but filling.
The Euro Youth Hotel is a good place to stay if you're in Munich. It's only 3 min. from the front doors of the Westbahnhof and two doors down from the Munich Wombats hostel. The entire lobby was undergoing rennovations when I was there but you couldn't hear anything past the first floor.
The staff were friendly and helpful as well. I would recommend the Euro Youth Hotel to my friends and family and would definitly consider returning the next time I visit Munich.
Unique Quality: elevator, close to train station
Directions: From front of Westbahnhof, turn RIGHT, cross street and tram tracks, turn a quick right and quick LEFT. The hotel is about 80 meters down the street. Past the Wombats hostel.
Stayed here for a few nights last May and just had a great time. The staff were amazing and friendly. The rooms were clean, *didn't do much sleeping in them but you're in munchen, who cares* bathrooms were the cleanest hostel bathrooms i've ever seen and the bar had the cheapest drinks in town. The best part about my stay at the hostel had to be the people, within 5 minutes of my arrival, i was learning how to say prost and pounding a few beers. Go and meet the people at this hostel, you wont find a better bunch.
Good located near the Hauptbahnhof (Munich central station).
The rooms are old looking, quite Spartan. Once I stayed in a room in the first floor and it was impossible to sleep because there was a lot of noise from the hostel-bar till early in the morning. Breakfast: not to blame.
In a city where accommodation is generally quite expensive, the Euro Youth hostel, at 50 Euro per night for a double room including breakfast, was very good value. It's in a central location in a quiet street near the Hauptbahnhof. Our room was fine: we had TV, heating and washbasin, with shared toilets and showers in the corridor. The bar downstairs was a lively place and they had a happy hour from 6-9 every night. The buffet breakfast was impressive for a hostel with as much bread, cereal, coffee, juice, etc, that you want. The people staying there were mostly college/school age, though it wasn't especially noisy. Also the staff were very helpful and friendly. All in all, a good budget option for Munich.
Directions: Near the Hauptbahnhof
i was only one night in munich and stayed in Euro Youth Hotel.It was very nice hostel,great people,very tasty breakfast.The room was big and clean,with shared facilities but it was near the room and very private shower and toillet.They also have a private double room with WC in the room but it's impossible to order such room on their website.Anyway,the location was excellent,near the main train station and near the city center.
Five of us travelled to Munich to visit the Oktoberfest, as we would only be there for two nights and would more than likely be drunk I looked for the cheapest accomodation that I could find. I found the Euro Youth Hostel via the website gomio.com. They had rooms that slept five so we booked one of those for 35 Euros per night per person (Including breakfast).
I wasnt really expecting too much to be honest but I was very surprised when I arrived, mainly by the size of the place and the friendliness of the staff. One of the guys on reception swapped effortlessly between English, German and what i assumed to be Japanese whilst serving us with a welcome beer!
The room itself was massive with two bunk beds and one single, it also had two sinks. The toilet and shower were shared but were just a short walk down the corridor.
I will definitely consider staying here next time I visit Munich for a short period. However, I prefer a more private room if I am staying longer.
Euro Youth Hotel is definitely a party hostel. The bar has happy hour every day (serving THE best beer in Munich for cheap!) and stays open until people go to bed/they have to clean up for breakfast. Large rooms, fairly clean washrooms, HUGE breakfast (it costs 3,90 euro but you can take lunch too), laundry, cheap internet access, and located across the street from the train station. Marienplatz is a 10-minute walk; Hofbrauhaus is 12 minutes away; 2 Augustiner beer halls are within 10 minutes too. Fun receptionists will party with you at the bar at night.
We had a great stay. There were three of us and we stayed in a private, which was incidentally less for the private than a shared three bed co-ed. Who knows why.
It was clean, pretty quiet. However we did get some neighbors the one night that were rather loud and drunken. They were making a bit of ruckus outside the room around 0400 in the morning. Other than that, it was a great stay. It is close to the train station and really easy to find. It is also on the same street as two other hostels. I guess if you don't like one place, you can always switch!!!
Unique Quality: We got our own bathroom, YEAH!!!
Stayed here for 1 night during the oktoberfest in 2004. Nice hostel with also some rooms for small groups. Be advised to make reservations, especially during the oktoberfest period since Munich is crowded at that time of the year.
Unique Quality: Close to the central station and other public transport.
In the high season of summer through Oktoberfest the hostels can be full to overflowing. Try to make a reservation BEFORE you set off for Munich.
