There is one tiny downside to our LOCATION: we are located slap bang in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! Anyhow, we don't think that it is that dangerous and the hostel has a HIGH safety standard. However, if you don't feel comfortable staying in this area, feel free to book somewhere else.

If this isn't a problem, you'll discover many upsides to our location:

- 3 mins walk from the train station

- 10 mins walk to the museums/river bank

- 15 mins walk to the city centre (shopping street)

And - we promise - you'll find the best international take-away food just around the corner.

Look out for our LAST MINUTE SPECIALS (each bed 19,- Euro one day before arrival), all you can eat free breakfast and our seasonal specials.

If you have further questions, contact our lovely office team Elena, Sarah and Sandra. They are always happy to help you.

See you in a tick!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Five Elements gets all the ticks from me. Service is unbeatable. I left my handbag in the bathroom of my ensuite (PANIC!!) and Five was able to expressed post it to me in Berlin in super quick time! All my valuables including my mobile phone and cash were intact! Their service and cooperation should be highly commended.

As for location, yes it is in the middle of a red light district. But this is Germany, so even the sex industry is pretty orderly and safe. I am a single female traveler and I did not notice anything alarming even when I arrived late at night. It is literally 5 mins from the Hbf which is a blessing for someone like me who always cut it fine in time for trains and buses...

Facilities and cleanliness is great in my 3 bed ensuite! lots of storage space and good for even 3 people. Bathroom is new and regularly house-kept. Although I will note that the communal bathroom outside has some odour, which can be easily corrected with some air freshener.

I like the common area, WIFI is reliable.Very comfortable set up. Breakfast a decent selection. Good latte. Plus the free pancakes is the icing on the cake! :P

You can't go wrong with FIVE! FIVE STARS!!!

I really liked this place. First and foremost I found the staff to be very friendly. The facilities were very good as was the cleanliness. With the special promotional price I paid for double and had my own room with en suite bathroom, which was luxurious by hostel standards (a bowl with small bottles of shampoo, soap and toothpaste -- AWESOME!!!).

Since I was actually visiting Frankfurt for a conference in the airport area, the hostel's 5 minute walk to the main train station with direct connection to the airport train station was utterly brilliant! In this case, being located in the middle of the RLD was not liability, and if I may make a suggestion, in my opinion the hostel doesn't have to incessantly apologise/warn guests of the location. :)
