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...

A great hostel with more of a hotel feel. We were welcomed by very kind staff (we were greeted and served by Andi) the service was perfect. He gave us tips on where to eat and where to drink whilst we waited for our room to be ready. The room was clean and functional, a very basic room but still... More

Modern looking facility, free breakfast and wifi. First experience at a hostel...had private room/private bath, 2 twin beds. Small armoire with a couple of shelves, desk and chair. I'd say only...

Visited Cologne in November 2014 with two friends for a spontaneous last minute booking. Luckily I came across this underrated gem as the alternatives that were available at such short notice didn't look the most appealing Location - Our flight arrived at Cologne airport at 9.45, and in under one hour later we were checking into the hotel! We jumped... More

We stayed here for a quick one night visit to Koln on our way to Munich. I was very impressed with the accommodations. We had a family room and our boys loved the bunk beds and the room was very spacious and clean. We also enjoyed the breakfast and the location near the center of town for shopping, transportation and... More

Really nice experience, there ! Nice room, even though I'm not a big fan of having a bed between 2 walls, nice shower room with a large shower "à l'italienne". Staff was really welcoming and helpful (again a special thank to Roland for his kindness and his easygoing way of welcoming his guests). Location is excellent in Cologne, really central... More

We stayed in hostel Köln for one night as a part of a bachelor weekend. We parked our cars in public underground parking which is situated nearby. The hostel is surprisingly big and modern and situated not far from the historical centre and shops. We arrived at noon and our rooms were not ready yet, but on the ground floor... More
