Cheap Munich Hostels

CHEAP MUNICH HOSTELS: There’s a solid number of independent youth hostels in Munich for visitors who’d rather save their Yankee dollars for beer. 

They’re relaxed places and most have a bar and some kind of chill-out zone for when a hangover’s got the better of you. Staff are easy going and helpful, often more so than at mid-range hotels. 

wombats-hostel-munichRELAX:  Chilling out at Wombat's. One of the best cheap
Munich hostels.

All have dorms and a selection of double and single rooms. Expect to pay about €20 to €30 for berth in a dorm and up to €60 for a private room. 
Prices double or triple during Oktoberfest, so bite the bullet and book early.

Hostelling International in Munich

Munich also has several "official" youth hostels (German: Jungendgästehaus orJungendherberge) part of the Hostelling International network. 
There is no age limit but it helps if you’re a member of a hostelling organisation in your own country. 
If you’re not you can still stay, but you have to pay for an "International Guest Card" which costs €3.10 a night for up to six nights before you’re in the club. These hostels tend to be super clean and breakfast is included in the price (around €30 for a dorm bed). 
The downside is that they’re pretty sterile and often less fun than the independent hostels. 

In Munich they are:
▪ Hostel München-City – About 5kms north-west of the city centre.
Address Wendl-Dietrich Strasse 20 Phone 089 202 444 90 

▪ Hostel München Park – A fair hike south of the city centre in Thalkirchen. 
Address Miesinger Strasse 4 Phone 089 785 767 70
