The hostel had a very home like feel to it. It is not a place to meet people, but if traveling in a group the rooms and kitchen area provide the perfect place to chill. The location is not very central but there is a u-Bhan very close by (which is very efficient). With free breakfast, cooking facilities (a must... More

The hostel is located very far away from town, and will cost you quite a bit to reach by u-bahn if you do it frequently. The hostel is clean, but the cleaning is done by the owner whilst guests are still in the room. It is not a great place to meet people, despite having quite a cool living room.... More

Big, spacious rooms, very comfy bed, next to metro (fast tram), quiet place. Helpful owner, the only minus is opening hours - reception is not working 24/7 - but if you plan well that should not be a problem ? Clean and comfy, not to forget that its cheap, what else you want ? Breakfast ? yes they have simple... More

The hostel is clean, tidy and conveniently located next to the U-bahn (very short ride to the city centre). However the atmosphere is a bit cold and the owner made us feel uncomfortable. I'm sure he's a good man and he's travelled a lot, but he's been quite rude to us from the moment we arrived and he's got a... More

We stayed here for one night. Located a few U-Bahn stops out of the centre, on a busy road. The owner seemed very friendly, and when we arrived he gave us a map and showed us what there was to see and how to get around etc. The hostel had a very traditional guesthouse feel, it's essentially just a large...

Basically I knew nothing about Germany and Cologne before this stay. Paying more or less the same, German hostels are way better than French and English counterparts, I am afraid. This hostel is next to a U-Bahn (metro) station but is within walking distance from city centre (Koln Hbf) only if you can walk three kilometres or forty-five minutes like... More

The owner was weird and very rude. Eerily quiet also, however if that's your thing you'll like this place. Wouldn't go back. The 'small breakfast' was also very poor and definitely as the description suggests.

Firstly, for a backpacker trying to save money and walked to this hostel - not a good idea. It was SO far away, and you need to walk through a very dodgy part of town. The hostel though was quite ok. It was small and I got a good nights sleep - not a party hostel cos it was so... More

I was last summer. I didn't recomend this hostel. First and foremost the owner never was in the hostel. Besides for this reason I had a bad experience. You must to give a deposit for the key. The day to leave around 10 a.m. the owner wasn't in the reception and for that reason I entered like a James Bond... More
