Frankfurt am Main

 Financial District Highrises in the Background

There is a few things you should know about Frankfurt hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Frankfurt, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.

Frankfurt is famous as one of the major financial centers in Europe -- second only to London -- and also hosts the headquarters of some of the most powerful financial institutions in the world. Despite its relatively small size, it is one of the most expensive cities in the world. However, there are great deals at hostels in Frankfurt -- they are much cheaper and with better facilities than an average German hostel.

The city abounds with different sights -- the Römer, the Archaeological Garden, the Saint Bartholomew's Cathedral, the Paulskirche, the Alte Oper, and the Goethe House. Although it has many commercial buildings and skyscrapers, Frankfurt has many green parks -- the Mainuferpark, the Frankfurter Grüngürtel, the Wallanlagen, and the Nizza Park. The city has one of the largest trade fairs in the world -- the Frankfurt Trade Fair. The prices for Frankfurt hostels usually go up during the fair which is visited by businesspeople from the whole world.

Everything in the city, apart from Frankfurt hostels, is expensive. There are many places to go out, like clubs, restaurants, and bars, but the prices are high. It is a good idea to book in advance a Frankfurt hostel in order to optimize your budget. The city has outstanding public transportation and great connections by train, bus, car, and plane. Most Frankfurt hostels are located in the center of the city and are easily reached from the train station.

Frankfurt is a great place to visit as it has something for each visitor; it is not a city that you visit for a day or two. And if you are interested in business and finance, it is one of the best places to visit.
