The hostel is in a great location, and the instructions they give you to get there are extremely good. Little tip: when leaving the hostel, just before the Mexican restaurant, take a left across the mini park and you're at the rudolfplatz station, sadly it took us a while to figure this out! The staff were very friendly and everything... More

We stayed for just one night in the hotel. The room was comfortable, however, the bathroom was quite small. Standard breakfast, nothing special there. Great location, walking distance from the main city attractîons and the restaurants / bars.

This hostel is really well run. The staff are friendly and I appreciated that my room (4 bunk beds) was very spacious with an En suite and little table area. There is nothing worse than being crammed into a small space with strangers. That said, this hostel is showing signs of wear. Most of the bunk beds in my room... More

An awkward location away from the Hauptbanhof (have to get a couple of U lines to Rudolphplatz to be close) Meininger was in a quiet location just off a main road. The twin en-suite room was the definition of acceptable nothing fancy. Beds were perfectly comfortable and the bathroom was also clean on arrival, but on the 5th floor the... More

Just back from a trip in Cologne. And stayed in the meininger hostel. Perfectly located just a short walk to rudolfplatz and about 30 min walk to the river. Hostel is basic. No air conditioning and the city was having a heat wave. Needs some repairs. No holder for the shower head. Light had been placed so close to the... More

Arrived Friday 3rd July for 3 nights. After initial delay of getting checked in we got to our room. To say we were disappointed is an under statement. Two small single beds even though we booked a double room, no air conditioning yes NONE. We asked for a fan but where just told no we don't have any. When we... More

Ideal location, clean, modern, friendly staff good prices idea for back packers, travellers or groups. Located near student area packed with really good bars, restaurants and only a short walk into down to the cathedral and river. A must for groups looking for some where to stay in Cologne.

We stayed for 2 nights in a family room. It has 3 bunk beds and ensuite inside our room. The room was quite small but comfortable and clean. The kitchen and common area are quite useful. The location is very convenient, close to supermarket, food & shopping area and tram station.
