We've spent one night at the Meininger Hotel Koeln City Center and had a great experience. The staff was extremely friendly and happy to help, everything was clean, the wifi worked well and the rooms were perfect. A nice clean bathroom and a room with enough space was all we needed on our trip. The luggage storage is very handy... More

Spent couple of nights in August 2014. Rooms were okay but too small. Location was good and few minutes away from ciry Centre and happening places such as Rudolfplatz. The hostel suddenly started increasing rent per night due to gamecom event and then I decided to moce to other place. Satisfactory stay for the budget travellers.

Can't rate this hostel highly enough, the staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful, they really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, even going so far as to provide a new phone charger for my travel companion when hers broke. They also allowed us to use the hostel computers free of charge since I... More

First impression was it's a backpacker/student type hotel but quite modern and certainly not downmarket or scruffy.. The reception staff were very courteous and friendly. The whole place was kept nice and clean. The room was so small that there wasnt even a wardrobe about 4 sqm. I stayed in a room on the top floor which was directly above... More

This was a good cheap option not to far away from all the attractions. The rooms were small with a bunkbed and 2 single beds crammed into a small room but this added to the atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff. Overalls good stay and good value for money.

Quite close to the centre of Cologne, 20 minute walk max. Very near the student part, cheap bars on surrounding streets. The breakfast was really nice, 5 euros may be a bit expensive but the coffee was delicious

On arriving at the hostel, we were greeted by very friendly staff.
