This hostel was in a great location for shopping, restaurants, pubs, and anything you can imagine in Cologne! The staff was super friendly and was willing to help us with anything we needed! The rooms were clean and the bathrooms and showers were very clean as well! I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in Cologne.... More

Went for a stag weekend. Was clean enough for what we wanted and the location was alright. Would not choose to visit here with my family, but was cheap and the staff were friendly enough. Gave the breakfast a miss, and they had a manky bowl of tea on offer for free...Stayed clear of that too - but some might... More

If you're looking for a budget place to lay your head down after a long day sightseeing or drinking and all you want is somewhere that is right next to the student district yet only a 20 minute walk away from the Cathedral then you should consider this place. Our dorm for 4 people which had 2 single beds and... More

A friend and I booked into the HOTEL not the hostel for 1 night whilst visiting a friend in Cologne. It's a good location, within walking distance to a tram stop, and fairly central. Easy commute from the main train station. We were greeted by a nice lady who checked us in, and gave us a key to our room.... More

Certain members of staff were quite unwilling to give advice to members of my group, such as the location of the bus station, how one buys a bus ticket in Germany and the local tram system. In addition to this, our bathroom was of a very low quality. The shower began leaking furiously and the toilet seat cracked the minute... More

Sleeping on the small beds is no problem if you're drunk. Nice place to sleep, pee and shower. Location in the centre, cool places on walking distance. Breakfast too early in the morning, impossible if you had a long night.

the hostel is in a great location, right next to the "student district" full of bars and clubs...not so far from the centre (2/3 metro stops, 20 minutes walk from the dom).. thumbs up for the bar of the hostel, where you can hang out with other guests..

The value for the money is amazing. I was also impressed by the standard. I stayed for a night in the 6-person dorm. Things that I did not expect and impressed me were the parquet floor, spacious private bathroom and free WiFi throughout the building including the room. I've seen much worse youth hostels and can fully recommend this place... More

Booked this place on the basis of a Google search. Arrived quite late from a long journey. The staff were unbelievably welcoming and accommodating. One guy in particular really looked after us - making us tea late at night, allowing us to top up and with an extremely accommodating 'nothings a problem' manner. Other staff advised us on travel to... More

If there was a rating between Average and Very Good, I would take it. It isn't exactly 'Very Good' but it isn't average either. This place is simply Good. While it offers double occupancy rooms, it is not a hotel. It is a hostel. We stayed in a 4-bed female dorm room, which was cozy but did have enough space... More
