This is your typical Hostel in Europe. It's a great price, it's clean, it's secure, its literally in the middle of freaking everything!
It's not too far of a walk from the main train station, but it's just far enough if you have a lot of luggage. They have their own bar, and game room, and televisions downstairs. Checkin went pretty smoothly, and the staff speak great English!
We stayed in the cheapest Hostel rooms, 6-8 bunks with lockers, and they'll loan you a lock if you need it. This room had its own bathroom, which is better than dorm style restrooms for the whole floor, which they also had. Our bunkmates were a little rowdy one night and came back drunk, but I can't fault the place on that one.
There are also family rooms, and single or double rooms with private bathrooms if thats more you style, and you prefer the more Hotel like feel. The building itself was really quite to both outside noise and from room to room. It had plenty of places to just hang out or get quiet time if you needed it as well. They only had wi-fi in the lobby are though, and they have computers you can use for a small fee per minute or per hour.
They also rent bicycles, if you need, andhave transportation nearby going every direction. Just ask for help if you're unsure. There is also a GREAT free tour that starts in the area. I recommend doing that first to get the low down of the area. It's way helpful!

Although Meininger Munich often hosts bigger groups, the hostel is also a great alternative for a family. The Family rooms are clean and have private bathrooms and TV. There is a guest kitchen, and Oktoberfest is 5 minutes away. Free WiFi is available in the lounge only. If you want to access the Internet in your room, you have to pay. All you can eat breakfast is available for 4.50 Euros. Bikes are also for rent, and once you've figured out the Tram-Bahn, Munich’s above ground metro-train, you will get around the city easily.Recommended for:Family Travelers

Do not try to walk from Hauptbahnhof if you have heavy backpacks, although the signs at Hauptbahnhof say it is just a 9 minute walk. It is much easier to take the S-Bahn to Hackerbruecke. The 18/19 Tram-Bahn, which also runs at night, stops basically in front of the hostel, at the stop called "Holzapfelstrasse". Once you are there, things are easy. Oktoberfest is close and Munich’s oldest beer-cellar, the Augustiner Braeustuben, is right across the street. For guest who are not allowed to drink yet, Meiningers has also a few things to offer. There is a game zone and pool table, which are open 24 hours. Free Tour, a tips-only-basis city tour of native English speaking guides, picks up right in front of the hostel.
