The name is not good: this is a HOTEL not a HOSTEL. It has regular rooms with bathrooms and regular beds, no dorms. I understood that there are 4-bed-rooms, but the concept is a hotel concept. The receptionist explained that it is a 'hotel with a hostel concept' :) And it is quite a good hotel...a surprise: Reception staff and... More

This hotel is cute, clean, well priced and conveniently located in Cologne, close to the city Square (~1.5 km walk, 10-15 min) and close to the city's shopping district (esp. during the holiday season you can easily hit all the Christmas Markets scattered throughout the town to get your gluhwein fix). The breakfast is really great and the staff was... More

We stayed here as a family with two small children (3 and 6) from Thursday to Sunday. It was a most pleasant experience. The young hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the place is very very clean and tidy. Although the the hostel is situated in a lively neighborhood (which I reckon is an advantage to the youthful... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during a road trip with friends around Europe. The room was fine quite modern and has more of a hotel feel than hostel, nice clean bathroom with decent Wifi. The hotel location is quite far from the river Rhein and took about 15-20 mins walk and there's not a lot around the hotel in general.... More

It's a great hostel in a 6 floor building with big rooms and bathrooms. Very clean. We were in a private room without a locker inside the room, but we felt very safe. Windows blocks every sound around. WiFi was good, sometimes slow. Great breakfast! The only thing that could be a problem for some people is that there is... More

It is clean and adequate for a business trip. The reception is friendly and service is good. There is also a big conference room with projector which can be used as a good meeting room - euro 20/h.  So the rooms are like a hostel in the sense that you go to the room and there is a twin bed...
