Top tips for finding Frankfurt am Main hostel deals

  • To find one of the Frankfurt am Main hostels as close to the city centre as possible, book through KAYAK at Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt. It’s in the Bahnhofsviertel area, about 10min on foot to the central business district, and only around a 5min walk to Frankfurt Central Station for trains and Central U-Bahn for buses. It offers more than your typical hostel: you’ll have your own kitchen, a seating area in your room, laundry facilities and even room service. There’s a bar and lounge and all facilities are adapted for limited mobility access, including the provision of roll-in showers, shower chairs and lift accessibility.
  • If you’re looking for Frankfurt am Main hostels that aren’t in the middle of the busy urban area, a good choice is Frankfurt Bed & Breakfast in the Nord-Ost neighbourhood of the city. This is known as a quiet suburb, and the hostel has private check-in and check-out. You’ll have your own terrace or patio and a dining area, too. Parking is free and you can explore the surrounding area via hiking trails, or go cycling or horse riding. To make things even easier for you to avoid the hustle and bustle, there’s a mini-market on site. If you do want to go into the centre of Frankfurt, it’s only a roughly 15min trip on an S-Bahn bus.

There’s a restaurant, a snack bar and a bar with a lounge, plus a buffet breakfast is included in the cost. Special diet meals can be provided on request. Laundry facilities are available, and limited mobility access is very good. There’s plenty to do here as well, with bowling, water sport facilities, cycling and canoeing, plus indoor activities like pool and ping pong.
