The typical back packer ... Mixed o separated rooms, lot of people from every corner of the world. What really struck me was security's level; a bodyguard at the entrance and many doors accessible just with a personal badge.

The Hostel is decent, but all I remember is, I went to sleep with my wallet in my pants pocket, wearing my pants. In the morning, my money (170 Euros) and credit cards were gone and the wallet was out of my pocket at the edge of the bed. Some creep in my room stole all of it. The hotel... More

Me and my friends are just on an inter rail and this is the second hostel we've stayed in. But it just seemed so bad that I had to write something about it. Hostels are usually pretty cheap but the United hostel was a total rip off. I don't know about the refugees, we didn't see any or at least... More

The Wifi is poor, the people at reception don't look happy. As mentioned in someone else's review, the hostel has a large number of refugees staying which means if you're travelling and want to meet people, this is not the place. I can't say how often the bathroom in the room was cleaned as the floor always seemed dirty. The... More

It is really easy to get around from this hostel, because it is close to the "Hauptstache". You can go from here to anywhere in Europe literally! On the other hand, the neighbourhood is not so great, but still very secure. If you just need a place to crash at night this is a place to stay!!!

Clean, comfortable dorms, flashy bar and even a cinema! Great value. We were there for Germany's world cup victory as well and it was an amazing night. The staff were helpful and friendly and it felt better than most hotels we've stayed in. Will definitely return.

I have resided in a 12-bed room for some nights, for around 15-20 € per night. Although "12 bed-room" sounds noisy, the special room layout and bed design made me sleep quite well: Each bunk bed has a back-wall, so that it is a little bit more private space than in other hostels. Internet works well in the rooms and... More

“I'd tell you the room I prefer, but then you'd sign up and it won't be available when I get there. Here's a hint ... 4 bed mixed. Even though it costs a little more, the smaller number of people coming and going makes it worthwhile.”
