The Tent - great accomodation for a low price

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 15, 2008

This place is a good opportunity for those of you who want to visit Munich without spending all their shopping money for the accommodation. It's cheap, clean, friendly and in a good location. Furthermore, the visitors are very international - the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia, you name it.
The Tent is not only a campground, but also a dormitory. Several large tents with double-stock beds on concrete ground satisfy those who don't enjoy building up their own tents, but who want to stay in Munich on a small budget.
There are shower/bathroom facilities, table tennis tables, a nice little bar and a bonfire place on the properties. The guys from the reception can help you with nearly everything and they also offer a free (!) Munich tour every day. All in all, I was very satisfied with my stay there - had it not been for that man next to my bed who snored so loud that you could have heard him from 20 miles away... :(

Unique Quality: friendly staff, price

Directions: a little bit away from the centre - but a tram (No. 17 to Amalienburgstr.) goes out there every some minutes

The Tent

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 26, 2005

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.

ADVICE:
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!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 10, 2005

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

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

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.<br/><br/>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

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2003

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

by written on August 26, 2002

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.
