Euro Youth Hostel



Hostelz.com's Review

Euro Youth Hostel is very large and houses many backpackers. This is an ideal hostel to stay at if you are interested in meeting other backpackers and like to party.

The Location

This hostel is only a block from the main train station and a ten-minute walk to the main shopping strip of Munich and the iconic church. It is next door to two other youth hostels and feels relatively safe at night, with the exception of some seedy stores another block down.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are large; there are five floors of dorms with two toilets and two showers per gender on each floor. The doors have electronic locks and in-room lockers large enough to store a suitcase. The showers have a changing area with a shelf on which to put clothes and towel and the shower itself has a shelf for soap and shampoo bottles. One toilet is large, with lots of space and one toilet is cramped with almost no space to turn around.

Common Spaces

The common areas are the bar and the nook off the bar on the ground floor. Even in the nook off the bar, there is music playing constantly and the only quiet space is in the dorm rooms. Both common areas are large with lots of chairs and tables. There is a TV in the back of the bar along with the book exchange. There is no kitchen in this hostel due to German laws. There is a small microwave and a hot water heater in the nook off the bar and breakfast is served in the bar in the morning for a fee. This is a social hostel, since the bar is the main common area. Fellow travelers are friendly and ready to party, starting with the bar before moving on to others in Munich.


This hostel is like a hotel with its electronic key cards and lack of a kitchen. The rooms are spacious and the bar is a fun place to meet fellow travelers, but there are not many places to be if you are seeking quiet.

  Room was extremely stuffy and a bit smelly.

Great Hostel
While I only stayed for one night (and honestly did not care for Munich), I really liked this hostel. Extremely friendly front desk with clean dorms and bathrooms. Good lounge area with a very lively bar at night. Additionally, very well located in terms of sights and the like. Only downside I had is the lack of a kitchen but if you can get away without one that you should. Would definitely stay again.

Great Hostel
Only complaint is that the showers are annoying, it shuts off every 15 seconds unless you push the button again. Everything else was great, very convenient location too.

Great bar, great location
Excellent location, ridiculously close to the train station and easily within walking distance of the centre if Munich. The staff were very friendly and pointed out some good tours to go on and answered any questions knowledgeably and cheerfully. Whilst the rooms are pretty unexciting they're clean and bed linen is changed daily -- nondescript but nothing to complain about there. The highlight of the hostel is the bar which had a great atmosphere every night and lots of people socialising, even if it was the low season. 2euro augustiner beer until 9pm definitely helps things along. All in all, really good, central hostel but perhaps lacks differentiating factors that would make it really excellent.

Very clean
Probably the cleanest hostel I've stayed at. Super friendly staff. Really nice accommodations. Good lockers in the room. Nice bar downstairs but not many people there. Probably they were all at the beer halls at Oktoberfest.
Benchmark hostel
If only all hostels were up to this kind of standard.

Great atmosphere
The location was excellent, so close to Munich Hbf. The atmosphere was great, the bar offered good deals for people to hang around. The breakfast was good, although it could be a little bit cheaper. The staff was so helpful, I got my discount ticket for the Dachau concentration camp. I don't give 5 out of 5 often so 4 is a really high rating for me. The only thing that brought it down was the noise at night by drunk people since there are 12 people in one room. (I really liked that they had a little curtain for some privacy on your bed.)

Nice hostel, literally beside the main train station
We had a good stay at Euro Youth Hostel. Our room was clean and nice. The bar had good cheap beer. Breakfast was not too expensive for what you got. Right beside the central train station.
