Looking for a hostel without any trace of a party? Munich’s CVJM/YMCA could do the trick, as the church-run hostel offers low-cost bunk-filled rooms in a friendly, school group-friendly environment between the train station and the Ring.
Rooms here are very, very simple. They include 3 singles, 17 doubles (two twin beds), and 16 triples (bunk beds and one single), all of which are equipped with a sink. Rooms share two toilets and two showers on each floor. Given that about 30 people per floor share these facilities, we found this ratio a bit tight.
Note that there are no double beds here, only twins. Furthermore, if reserving for two people, be sure to note that you’d like to restrict yourselves to a double, otherwise you might wind up being placed in a triple, with a stranger occupying the third bed. (Unless, of course, you enjoy sleeping with strangers.)
The lobby has a breakfast nook, a small library, vending machines (coffee and tea is available), and a wide array of tourist brochures. A small chapel and a game room—complete with a ping pong table—are downstairs.
Some will find the church-run hostel's enforced morality a bit much: if you are an unmarried couple, you will have to sleep in separate rooms, for example (although they don’t officially monitor this). If these rules don't bother you, however, the CVJM could be a good choice for a cheap city stay.

About the CVJM/YMCA Muenchen neighborhood
The blocks south of the Hauptbahnhof, or main train station, feature a staggering number of hotels. Many of Munich's sex shops can also be found here, as well as shopping, restaurants, bars and cafés. Stadtmitte is also nearby and very well served by public transportation.
