Great Services for Happy Backpackers

Our Guest Kitchen

Essential to any globetrotter on a budget is finding a way to eat affordably. MEININGER knows this and that is why our hotels have a guest kitchen they can use to cook their meals before they set off into city! It is also a great area to meet other like-minded travelers. (Not available in Berlin Mitte, London and Vienna Central Station).

Bathroom en suite

Some down sides of travelling on a budget is staying in poor accommodation where you even have to walk the hallways at night to find a toilet or look for a shower in the morning! But this is not a problem at MEININGER. Our rooms, whether it´s private or multi-bed, come with a shower/WC and much more.

Game Zone

If it´s a rainy day and you don´t fancy going out in the city but equally you don´t want to get bored in your room alone, check out the game zone! Here you can feel the competitive spirit with your fellow backpackers, challenge each other to a table football tournament or play a board game.

Washing Machine and Dryer

If you are exploring the sights, sounds and smells of this wonderful world then you can guarantee some clothes are going to end up dirty. That is not an issue at MEININGER- in fact we encourage it! It´s all part of the adventure. We offer washing machines and dryers in our guest kitchen that you can use for a small fee. (Not available in Berlin Mitte & Vienna Central Station).

Central Location

As a backpacker, you want to see and absorb everything you can on your travels. MEININGER helps you in this mission by ensuring all our hotels are in the centre of the city. This means you can check out all the landmarks and tourist attractions. Also, if you want to travel further out, we are placed right next to excellent public transport links!

The staff were helpful, the rooms provided everything I needed, and the breakfast provided a lot of variety.

MEININGER Hotel Amsterdam City West


Ilias Tsoukatos

Very spacious room, excellent location, very close to amsterdam by train. Everything was perfect. The only thing I would add is a small refrigerator in the room

MEININGER Hotel London Hyde Park

It was okay


I was in the dorm which was comfortable but had a bad atmosphere (although this is to be expected in a hotel based dorm), the common area was the same. My low rating is because the info clearly states

Great location, clean room simple but had everything we needed. Buffet breakfast tasty and fresh, access to a kitchen to make hot drinks a bonus. Luggage storage really useful
