Savvy travellers will find something that suits every style, especially with the various choice of Munich hostels which are just as diverse, elegant and exciting as the city itself and include some of the best hostels in Germany. Whether you are a solo traveller, on tour with your significant other or ready to have a calm city break, we have the best Hostels in Munich for you, so you can spend your time studying all the different types of beer you can get instead (because, well, there are a lot!).

How to find the best hostels in Munich for your trip

Finding a hostel to explore a new city, the trickiest questions always come up when you choose the best location and type of hostel to suit your style. Luckily, Munich is making this an easy game! Most of its hostels are just outside the old town, giving you a perfect access to the best main attractions. Right outside your doorway, you will find Maxvorstadt, home of some of the best Museums and galleries as well as the university areas. There you have the pleasure of cheap food, drinks and a young crowd. After all, every hostel is loaded with extras, like all you can eat breakfast, game rooms and onsite bars. Some even provide camping during the busy Oktoberfest period. The best fun, a cheap price and some new friends are just the usual hostel perks which – for sure – are included too!
