We stayed in a five bed dorm which was clean, bright and tidy. The kitchen was great with everything we needed as well as free pasta and other condiments. The staff were very friendly and the hostel also had wifi access in the kitchen and lobby area. The hostel itself was in a very convenient location being only five minutes... More

Stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm which was very clean and bright. The building is located right in the heart of the city and is perfect place to stay if you plan to do lots of sightseeing whilst you are there. It is also a 2 minute walk from Koln Hauptbanhof. There is free wifi that works very well... More

The location is great. The room, adequate. The bathrooms were pretty clean and the temperature was warm in a cold winter. For the price, I thought it was ok. The only thing that Im not sure how they can solve, is the noise level. The walls are extremely thin and I could hear everything in the next rooms and hallways,... More

Really in the heart of COLOGNE. If you go by train, bus or airplain (from airport by train S 13 to mainstation 15-20 min). Cathedral, Museums, Oldtown, River, Bridges, Trade Fair, Restaurants, Pubs ... everything in only a few minutes walk. Cologne the "Heart-Chakra of Europe".

Only stayed her for one night as we were heading elsewhere the following day. Our room was very quiet and we slept well. The people on reception were very friendly and helpful. The only room was generally clean and tidy but the floor turned my boyfriend's socks yellow!

no one can deny that the location is awesome, but I didn't find the staff very friendly to say the least and found it incredibly noisy the whole night long. The WiFi wasn't working. The rooms in themselves are fine though. It's too bad because with a little extra effort this could be a good hostel, and not just a... More

I picked this hostel because of its close proximity to the train-station and of course the Cathedral. It situates on a quiet street not far from the train-station. The hostel may not be in top-notched sterling condition, but the staff was super friendly, helpful and welcoming. The lounge-area is a little small, especially since that is the only area with...

Good points: The location of the hostel is good, close walking distance from the train station and the cathedral. The guys at reception share good local knowledge. Our 8 bed dorm was large, and as stated no bunk beds, which made a nice change. Lots of cctv cameras on the inside of the building, including lockers situated in the hallways.... More

I was in a single room so I'm unsure about the quality of the dorms. The heating was fine, the room is compact and wifi only in the reception & kitchen area, nothing in the rooms. The room was simple but practical, the location of the hostel is great. Within minutes you are at the train station, the main cathedral... More
