    The Tent


    For € 8,50 we had a place in the big tent, we got as much blankets as we wanted.
    With no mattress we had to sleep on a wooden floor; between the floor and
    ourselves only a sort of coaster and a couple of blankets.
    It was not very warm in the tent, but after the first night we took some more blankets; it was no problem; we could get as much as we wanted.
    The big tent was made of white canvas, which made sleeping -especially during morninglight- very difficult.
    The breakfast was included in the price; you
    got a 2-euro-coin to buy a selection from a rather good choice of food. If you
    wanted more, you had to pay extra. The staff was very kind. There were 2
    computers with internet; €0,50 for 15 minutes.

    bring some kind of blindfold with you if you don't want to be waken by the daylight.

    Unique Quality: The showers/taps/toilets were like new; very clean and very comfortable.

    One can also meet people from all over the world; Australia, the USA or Sout-America; nothing is to mad.

    Every evening they have a campfire; nice to be around it.

    Directions: The western part of Munich, still in the centre.

    Community Living - Literally!


    This is a great place to meet people on your travels. It's just a huge circus tent, where everyone is given a foam pad and blankets. You just drop your stuff and claim a spot.

    There is a fire pit where everyone gathers at night. People play guitars, drink and talk. It's a great scene!

    The showers are cold and in a separate "trailer".

    Other than that, The Tent is awesome!

    Unique Quality: Fire pit, small food items at breakfast for sale (bagels, bread, cereal, etc).

    Directions: You have to take a bus to get there. It's far, but there are beer gardens on the way for pit stops!

    The Tent


    So what the hell is "The Tent" you may ask. The tent specifically refers to the more than 600 m² in size circustent filled with backpackers from all over the world as a place to stay during the summer months. There are also smaller tents that can be rented as well. If you don't bring your own sleeping bag then you can rent one of those as well.

    The tent facilities are generally open from the beginning of June to the beginning of September. What I really enjoyed about this place were the nightly campfires where you could meet people from around the globe and then hit the town afterwards.

    Unique Quality: The reception desk is open 24h
    (break: 10.30-11.30 a.m. and 5.30-6.30 p.m.)

    Check-In: from 4.30 p.m. all night long until 10.30 a.m.

    Directions: Take the Tram number 17 direction "AMALIENBURGSTRASSE" and get off at "BOTANISCHER GARTEN". Approx. 13 minutes. From there its just 500 meters.

    The "17" is a night line which means it runs all night long and offers the best connection

    Make sure you have a sleeping bag


    The tent facilities are open generaly from the beginning of June to the beginning of September. During the Octoberfest prices soar in the hotels. The-Tent is a perfect solution if you find yourself in a bind for a room or just want to save some money. If you don't have a sleeping bag they have some for rent. As a word of warning, September is normally warm but freezing temperatures are not uncommon.... as we found out :)

    Unique Quality: With public transportation (MVV) you can reach the tent without transfer from the central station in only 13 minutes.

    Just take the Tram number 17 direction "AMALIENBURGSTRASSE" and get off at "BOTANISCHER GARTEN".

    From there its just 500 meters - just follow the signs .

    Group Camping at its finest


    This is half hostel, half campground. There is one large main tent where 8 euro gets you a mat, some blankets, and a spot on the floor. For 10 euro, you get one bed out of 50 in the second tent. I'm not sure which is better, I went with the Bed, but there wasn't much suport. Or, it you have your own tent, your can pay 5 or 6 euro for a spot.
    This place is very laid back, and it's a great place to meet other travellers.
    And the silence after 1:00am is respected by all.

    Unique Quality: There is a cafeteria, that has breakfast and dinner (I wan't around for lunch) and beers cost 1.50 euro. The showers are clean and plenty of hot water, 4 for the boys and I sure 4 for the girls, I never went in and looked. And the toilets were far above average for most hostels that I've been to. There is also a laundry to do you washing. And at night there is a large camp fire to sit around.

    Directions: From the train station, take tram 17, it will cost you two tickets, and get off at the Botanischergarten stop, and follow the signs to the right.

    The Tent


    8.50 for the main tent with breakfast included. And I believe it was 10 Euros for the bed tent.

    Unique Quality: Great social experience. It's so cheap, and you meet so many people, and it's a great time. It's not the best sleep you'll ever get, but you can't beat the price, and the facilities are clean. You get a thin foam mat and a bunch of wool blankets.

More about The Tent Munich

a swell camping ground in munich

by forshy1 about the tent @ munich

we stayed here for 2 nites during june 2006. though it got quite cold in the evening, the reservation office was extremely generous with their blankets. (they supply you w/mats & blankets) not being booked to capacity might have allowed them to do so. we stayed in the big tent where you scope out a place to set up camp, unroll the sleeping bag, drop the bags, and go back out to play. they have ping pong tables, tons of places to sit & chill, their own beergarten, a fire pit (which is crackling every nite) and a place to play some futbol. the bathroom facilities were well kept and had tons of hot water to go round. outside of the bathroom facilities, they have solar heated water where folks could do a bit of laundry; they have a clothesline to assist with the drying stage. in addition to the big tent, if you bring your own tent they've got room for you to set it up or you might be interested in their smaller tent which has beds. in the big tent, they have lockers. you just need to bring a lock. keep in mind that if they are fully booked, there may not be enough lockers. we went during the FIFA games and had no problems though. and the staff...... very nice folks!

Looking for central, cheap hostels in Munich

by efrat_g


I'll be in Munich for about a week in the first days of October.

I'm looking for central, nice & cheap hostels in Munich, somewhere pleasent you've been to, and most importantly in a good location.

I'd also be happy to hear about good online guides to the city.

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've forgot to mention - that's my fault - I'm traveling with my mom. She's really young in spirit (:
but still I think we're looking for something central & quiet, pleasent to stay in and not too noisy...

thanks again!

Re: Looking for central, cheap hostels in Munich

You won't be lucky with a nice and cheap hostel in the first days of October I fear. The Oktoberfest is still on then and hostels are probably booked out already or don't take any reservations at all in advance for this time. With a little luck you find a decent hotel on the outskirts of town for an ok price at this time.

So if you have a chance to come at another time (if it's not the Oktoberfest you are mainly coming for), you should think about postponing your trip. Oktoberfest is on from 20 September to 5 October.

Hope this helps!

Re: Looking for central, cheap hostels in Munich

Oops I forgot. If you chose to come before or after Oktoberfest I can recommend Wombat's hostel next to the main station. It's modern, new and very friendly.

Or the Hotel Senefelder which is right across the street from Wombat's. Very reasonably priced except for during Oktoberfest.
