Great location. Great rooms. Breakfast plenty choice. Parking was under the building. Center of Cologne was only ten minutes walk all flat. Staff great especially George the night manager so helpful with our trip Cheers George.

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...

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

Chose this hostel based on TA reviews, availability and price. Was in Cologne for Christmas Markets and location is in between Neumarkt and Rudolfplatz. 2 UBahn stops from Hauptbahnof. 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
