It’s not only the staff’s hospitality from the reception/bar that brings energy to the whole building. A diverse range of activities, tours, and events are organized daily for all guests, which connects the guests, and helps them to see Frankfurt by getting together.

Among all the above mentioned choices, one of the most highly recommended is the shared flat with a spectacular skyline view from the roof-top. You will enjoy being in a clean, colorful, and fully-equipped room with wooden floors and massive windows. This is a perfect spot to wake up and enjoy the view of various skyscrapers, while having a self-made breakfast in bed at the same time. The hostel’s breakfast is available for 4.50 EUR (5 USD) between 7.30AM and 12PM. In the afternoon, it’s best to explore Frankfurt on foot as everything is within walkable distance from Five Elements Hostel.

Main Station with lots of cheap eats and stores, the red light district, and street markets are within a 5 minute walk. Go further to the Eastern side of the city, about a 10-15 minute walk, to find yourself lost in the medieval beauty of the Römer, Old Town, and Main River. Sachsenhausen - the Southern part of the city on another side of Main River - are where the best parties can be found!

There’s always something going on!

With the aim to get the guests together, Five Elements Hostel organizes something almost everyday for free for all guests and staff. Come enjoy crepes on Monday evening, fill your stomach with pasta on Tuesday pasta night, or experience the active nightlife with a free pub crawl on Thursday. There’s also a free beer tasting event every Friday starting at around 8 PM, which no guest should miss as long as he or she is in Germany - the land of the best beers in the world.

During each and every event, guests have the chance to mingle by sitting down in a circle. Without feeling ‘socially awkward’, otherwise if there was no such a get-together for strangers, guests introduce themselves while sharing simple stories of how they ended up in Frankfurt. There are also other events going on the other days of the week, such as a pub quiz, walking day-tour, museum day, etc.
