If the weather is looking warm..go elsewhere. This place was a hot box with no fans or aircon. We were there when temperaturea were around 40degrees celcius. Generally a good hostel with clean rooms and when we complained about a brokem shower it was fixed straight away. Wifi available in common area and stairs was good and fast.

I've been here for the second time in past year and I've liked it even more than the first time. It is cheap, beds are big, showers are clean and Kolner dom with hbf is just behind the corner. Stuff is really friendly, there is a nice bar right next door and they have really nice guest kitchen.

I booked in advance for £13!!!! and was only there for a day, I think I could only do two days max. Someone was in my bed when I got there, using my initiative moved into the next clean bed and told them. Reception felt dark and a little uninviting inside, people were interested in their Wi-Fi on their mobile.... More

Ideally located near to the central train station of cologne. We had 2 rooms to fit 7 persons, at a cost of €400+ for 2 nights, almost €30pp/pn. For the facilities, shared bathrooms, no AC, I find this extremely expensive and would have probably been able to book a hotel for similar price, in hindsight. The 3rd floor corridors stunk... More

I stayed for 2 nights in the 6 bed dorm. Excellent location, about 200m from the train station and cathedral, the 24hr reception is very useful and the staff were helpful. The beds were reasonably comfortable, and whilst the lockers were in the corridor outside, this didn't prove a problem. Wifi only works downstairs or on the first couple of... More

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
