Budget Accommodation Oktoberfest 2023
You want to find the best place to stay at Munich’s Oktoberfest, because your accommodation will make all the difference to your German cultural experience. There are a lot of things you’ve got to consider – who you’ll be staying with, how far away you’ll be from the festival grounds, will your hosts be happy with you stumbling in at whatever o’clock – but the most important thing to factor in is budget, mainly what percentage of your budget will be left after you’ve paid for your accommodation to go towards beer. You may think that there’s no budget accommodation at Oktoberfest, and there kind of isn’t, but nevertheless we’ve put together a list of the few options there are to help you out (and added in our patented accommodation vs beer percentage helper).
Where to stay for OKTOBERFEST 2023
Camping at Oktoberfest
Camping at Oktoberfest would be the cheapest per night of your options but not necessarily the cheapest overall. It generally costs €35 per night to pitch your tent in one of the Oktoberfest campsites, which is pretty good, but you’ve got to factor in transporting all your camping equipment there and so, particularly if flying is involved, this option could quickly start adding up to more than you expected.

Hostels for Oktoberfest
Usually the go to option for any budget traveller however, finding hostels during Oktoberfest can be a crazy expensive exercise. At best, you’ll manage to find a bed for just under €100 and that’s just for a bunk in a room full of 14 or more lederhosen-wearing vomit time-bombs. While it may not be the most expensive, in terms of value for money, this is probably your worst option.

Airbnb for Oktoberfest
You’ll have to be pretty ahead of the pack to grab something close and without completely insane prices, meaning you’ll have to book months in advance but if you do this, you’ll still be spending at least €80 for a room or €200-500 for an apartment close to the beer halls. So if you stay for a few nights, you’ll probably be paying the equivalent of your month’s rent.

Hotels for Oktoberfest
Unless you’ve got a shit tonne of cash to splash, really just not an option at all. Prices at all the hotels with be jacked-up for Oktoberfest so if you want to be anywhere near the beer halls you could be spending more than €300 a night. That’s a lot of potential beer.
