It's a small hostel right next to the central station which makes it very convenient. The beds are quite comfortable. Staff is OK. The and number cleanliness of the bathrooms. My floor had one toilet for women and one for men, which is very inconvenient. Since it's only 1 toilet, it should be cleaned multiple times in the day not... More

It is just a place for sleep if you are in a budget . In a very good location. You will need to pay your breakfast in the restaurant outside, but worth. The showers is good, but the smell in the corridor is awful.

Excellent location, just around the corner from the train station and the Dom, about a 5 minute walk.The dorm had beds, not bunk beds. Large kitchen and lounge/ dining area, wifi in lounge and kitchen, three free desktops in the lounge. On exit turn right and walk under the railway overpass for many cafes and small grocery stores, turn left... More

Less than 5 minutes' walk from the station. Very little disturbance from the station. Rooms are ok, although lockers are on the corridors (with the logic that they have CO TV on the corridors so can catch things if lockers are broken into). Free Internet use in the cafe on the ground floor. Self cater kitchen isn't the best but... More

Rooms are a mixture of a psychiatric hospital and a bathroom, with really hospital’s beds and a washbasin next to a bed in the room where you sleep and where the night someone vomited (I'll let you imagine the smell). The noise that comes from the street cannot let you sleep. Too small duvets, I was cold at night and... More

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".
