Very close to everything. Easy access to public transport. A large hostel, so getting a booking should always be possible. Very friendly and helpful staff with great english. Clean rooms with bathrooms in each. Met some great friends !

Stayed in this hostel recently, was very impressed by the cleanliness, the staff and the location. Right across the road from the central train station, 5 minute walk to the cathedral, the location is perfect. Hostel was nice and clean, comfortable beds and it had the best shower I've ever had in a hostel. Staff were friendly and very helpful,... More

I was on a trip to various cities in Germany and I booked this room for my first night, knowing I'd just want to crash. Cologne's hotels are expensive, and I've had success with booking my own room within a hostel before. This is a very hostel-y hostel: I was given my own sheets to put on the bed, and... More

Seriously, the best! The water has a lot of pressure to it, so it feels like you're getting a massage and there was lots of space on the shower, though I think there should be more lighting. The location is very good. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions. The hostel was really clean and the facilities... More

Simply everything you could expect and more. Room was small some guests in four male room had their ups and downs but the space outside the room was easy to escape if room got crowded. Take eye shades/mask and ear plugs and all will be good. Lovely staff.

I had only one mission in Cologne so all I needed was a warm bath and good sleep. The building is located near the Central Cologne train station (5 minutes walk). The reception was alright. You can get both hot (you need to boil of course) and cold water at the kitchen. There is a separate key for your own... More

Look, this wasn't by any standards a stand out Hostel but I can't really fault it in any respect either. The location was perfect - super close to the Hauptbahnhof and river. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The ensuite bathroom was spacious and well equipped. The staff members were very helpful and polite. I think the only thing... More

The hostel is super well located. It is close to the train/bus station and also to the Dom and many touristic attractions. The beds are confortable and the place is not noisy. It is may a bit expensive, it could be cheaper.
