Die Wohngemeinschaft Hostel could almost be called a hotel. The only drawback is the hostel-typical noise. The rooms are beautifully decorated in unique themes, which would suggest a higher price than they actually charge. The location is also great, immediately near dozens of restaurants and a short walk from the main city attractions.

Loved this place. Was pleasantly surprised by the great decor. The receptionist was super helpful in telling us where was cool to hand out. The breakfast was continental which I'm not personally into but it was substantial for my friends. Will come back again for sure.

The hostel is easy to reach by car or by metro however you prefer. You can park a few km's outside the city near the metro in the aachener strasse or just park near the hostel in 1 of the underground parking places (around €20 for 24h). The staff was very kind and the bar fully packed and cosy! A... More

Best beds of any hostel in the world hands down. Each bed is large, private and comfortable with a shelf, light, power socket and curtains. The rest of the facilites ie bathrooms, lockers etc are great. Only thing lacking is a kitchen. Not the most social of hostels but had a great time on the Wednesday night at the bar... More

This hostel is one of the best I ever stayed at. The room was very cozy and was very nicely decorated. Overall very clean and the staff was very helpful. The bar was amazing. It was a place where locals would go for a kölsh and just hang out. Would warmly recommend this hostel to anyone I know! Also great... More

My friend and I both think over priced. For a couple, it would be perfect. The shower rooms were clean and the bathroom. The area was pretty central. The bed, thou big was super firm. The bar down stairs, they did not have jameson! But there are tons of little places close by like 4-5 mins walking. HerrPimock is super... More

My husband and I stayed at this hostel for a weekend break in Cologne. The rooms are very very beautiful and cool and there's no denying that they are designed to the highest standards. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is free wifi and worked alright in the rooms and common areas. Bathrooms, though shared, are kept clean (tip: there... More

I stayed for one night during a quick stop off in Cologne when travelling through Germany in December 2014. Very reasonably priced and located in a good area of the city. The staff were fantastic, very knowledgeable about the city and more than happy to assist in anyway that they could. There is a lounge in the hostel where you... More

Die Wohngemeinschaft is an exceptional hostel, and if I returned to Cologne I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms are perfection. Beautifully designed, and the beds are huuge, definitely bigger than doubles - ours were private like little cabins and had red velvet curtains, individual lights and sockets. (Shakespeare room). Bathrooms and showers were abundant so never had to wait... More
