This is one of the top 3 hostels I've ever been in, probably the best. The bedroom is large and well decorated (you'll NEVER find a stuffed ferret and tree trunks in a hostel room anywhere else!), comfortable beds, friendly staff, pretty good breakfest, and finally, incredibly cheap for what they offer. You won't regret!

One of the most interesting hostels you can find in Cologne! The rooms have different themes! I got the travelling band one and the beds are shaped like those heavy duty carriage case. Toilets and showers are really clean. Staff were very friendly too!

Nice rooms, nice staff, a night club downstairs, but no sounds in your room. Almost felt like in a good hotel room, only had to share wc and bathroom, but there were like 2-3 wc for 5 rooms :) Also many bars and nightclubs around so your wont be sad her :)

The place has very interesting rooms, the showers and bathrooms are always clean and the decoration has very good taste. The staff was very helpful to show what to do around town. There is a very nice bar downstairs.

This is a brilliant, quirky hostel in a great area of Cologne. The Belgian quarter is full of restaurants, bars and interesting characters making in the perfect base. The hostel is amazing and well worth paying a little bit extra. The beds are HUGE! with a shelf, light and plug socket and each bed has its own curtain for some... More

I walked in to the hostel without a reservation and they were able to accommodate me with a dorm bed for 3 nights. The hostel is a little bit away from the center of town (where the Dom and river, etc. are located) but I preferred this location as it was near the trendy Belgian Quarter and I enjoyed exploring...

Once you get out from the station you need to walk for 5 mins to the hostel. Tram station is also 5 mins walk away from the hostel. During December there are two... More

Because it's simply amazing. It is worth every penny. You don't see a lot of hostels with ratings of 4 and above!! It's located above the die wohngemeinschaft bar, and the entrance is the door next to the bar. If it's closed, go in through the bar. The bartender can help you if you're confused. Room 1-8 is on the... More
