Munich Budget Accommodation / Backpacker Discount Policy
To qualify for Mike's Bike Tours and / or Bus Bavaria's backpacker discount we require a receipt or a promotional coupon from one of the hostels or hotels in our list below.
When it comes to budget accommodation in Munich we recommend the places listed below. Many of these privately owned Munich budget / youth hotels are not like the classic hostels of the past. They are modern and offer more than just dorm-room accommodation rather also single and double rooms, some with showers en suite. They also all offer a good or at least decent breakfast and friendly service.
Central Munich Hostels / "Backpacker" Hotels:
Jäger's Hostel, Senefelder Str. 3, only 100m from the Main Train Station.
A & O Hostel Arnulfstraße – is a short tram ride up the street from the north side of the main train station and their other location is only a 7 min walk up the street from the south entrance, in the Bayer Strasse.
The Euro Youth Hotel, Senefelder Str. 5, next to Jäger's
Wombats Hostel, Senefelder Str. 1, also next to Jäger's.
Smart Stay Hostel, at Goetheplatz.
CVJM (YMCA) – the YMCA in Munich is about 300 m from south side of the main station
Central Munich Budget Hotels:
Pension Locarno is a very friendly family owned place just outside the main entrance to the main train station.
Pension am Siegestor is a very cozy and friendly place to stay in the heart of Schwabing right near the university, a nice 15 minute walk or just one subway stop into the heart of the Old Town (Odeonsplatz), alternatively, two stops to Marienplatz.
Hotel Belle Blue is right up the street from the main train station, South side.
Hotel Monaco is also only about 200m from the main train station.
The Creativ Elephant is a very nice "designer-oriented" hotel near the N. side of the train station for a slightly higher budget

If you feel that another recommendable and inexpensive place to stay should be on this list, please let us know and consider bringing a receipt and business card from the establishment to our shop.
We are interested in working with owners of apartments that are using Air B & B and other such online agencies.
