AH. Fair enough then.

ANd Meininger was great. That's where I'm going. Too bad I couldn't find that before.
Well, I don't know why seeing as you did a check here? It's listed Did you perhaps just search on 'budget hotels', rather than all budget accommodation? As properties can only be filed in one category, a hostel won't show in the hotel listings and vice versa. Everything shows in the overall budget accommodation listing. I've heard good things about Meininger, so sure it'll be a good stay. Mind you, I've heard good things about Wombats too, and it just won 'best hostel chain' (scroll down to bottom) last week at the 'Hoscars' I stayed at the Wombats City hostel in Vienna together with Gelli last summer and it was nice. Seems to be a few of these smaller chains popping up in Europe. Meininger has different properties in different cities and there's others actually buying out independent hostels. Anyway, now I'm getting off topic.
Oh, and I removed the url in that post like Sander said. The member had had several posts deleted in the past already, so have inactivated. He/She was just posting for promo purposes
For people with flexible agendas wanting Munich accomodation, try this:
- look for hotels in the business districts around Munich e.g. Ismaning, Unterscheissheim etc
- phone them directly for quiet nights Friday - Sunday and public holidays and negotiate
They are usually underbooked at these times and offer some quite resonable rates for a 2 or 3 night stay but they won't advertise this
It has worked very well for a number of friends of mine
You can use public transport to get to the center
There are also a number of small towns well connected to the center by s-bahn and train, eg Freising, Pfaffenhofen...
Finally, there are a lot of gaststaete and B&Bs in the countryside around. Some are all year, some just summer. The ones I know are perfectly clean and friendly and don't present any problems but you will probably need a car. Many are clustered around the A8/A9 autobahn junctions and cater to stopovers of holidaymakers going from northern states to the southern ones and vice versa as well as people targetting the local countryside for holidays
Thanks Michael. I'm here now and going to price around to see what I can find out for the future. Meininger's is top notch and well organized by the by. I-ll look at Wombats today too.
