I've just left this hostel and I miss it. Great location, good staff and comfy bed. The best part is the atmosphere. The common room is small but that allows you to meet your fellow travellers. I had a great time cheers guy's

This hostel is located in a nice location where few minutes walking distance to the Train station and also city central. However, please be aware for others guests because some may get drunk at night and do stupid thing to you. We have been racism by the drunker.

I've just spent 4 nights here, I was a bit apprehensive as I'd booked mostly on the basis they have single beds, not bunks and not read the reviews properly. I needn't have worried as everything was fine. The location was perfect, but the biggest plus is not having the hassle of a bunk bed. Single beds in all the... More

Whilst interailing around Europe, we stayed at this hostel. It was the worse experience of the whole trip. The hostel was ok, although the mix of people wasn't and it put us in edge to the point that we didn't want to spend time at the hostel. The wifi is patchy. The kitchen is not clean. I wouldn't recommend staying... More

Everything was fine: the stuff is friendly, the bed is comfortable, the room is spacious and tidy, the toilets are clean. Didn't try breakfest, so I can't say anything about it, but it's available from 6.00 and it's for advantage over the most hotels and hostels. The location is great: about 1 or 2 (!) minutes from central station. I... More

Our room was great - comfortable, clean and spacious. The common facilities and kitchen were great. The location was good for tourist attractions but fairly horrendous for bars and clubs. The main problem we experienced was the inconsiderate guests and staff. We were kept up by loud groups of drunks Americans every night we stayed there - once until after... More

From other reviews I thought this hostel wasn't such a good idea. It turns out it was probably the best deal I ever got in my life. The price, location and sleep quality is so good it'll drop your pants. The staff is friendly and English speaking, you can cook meals in the kitchen without paying extra (free pasta too!),... More

I arrived relatively early at this hostel when visiting Cologne. Although I wasn't able to get into my room yet (rooms are available after 2) the hostel offers a luggage room for your bags to be stored until you get back. A lock is a 5 euro deposit, so everything gets back to you. The staff is really friendly and... More

This is a good place to stay in Cologne as it is only round the corner from the main station and only about 5 minutes to the main part of town with all the shops and eateries. It is clean, there are lots of plugs in the room and the beds are singles rather than bunks which makes a nice... More

We stayed here in a dorm room in August. Having never stayed in a dorm before I was a bit nervous about what this would be like. It was ok. The room were clean as were the bathrooms. The bed was comfortable and the bedding was clean. All in all it was a good experience. There is free wifi in... More
