I organised a Year 8 trip (12-13 year olds) to those hostel and can honestly say that it is a fantastic place to stay. The kids were all provided with clean and comfortable dorms, which is a real must for organising this sort of trip. All meals had a really good selection of foods, which is clearly replenished frequently. The... More

Recently, I took a school group to this hostel. Not only is it conveniently located just away from the very centre of the city, but it's clean, modern and comfortable. The kitchen catered to the dietary requirements of the group and the pupils really enjoyed their time there. The terrace is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a meal... More

Pleasant location close to the shore of the Rhine. Online reservation was totally free with payment due on arrival (you must get there by 18:00). Note that the Germans don't use credit cards much, so you will have to pay in cash. If you are paying for meals, make sure you are issued with the plastic tokens at check-in. Breakfast... More

I expected this to be really basic as it was billed as a youth hostel but was pleasantly surprised. The room was average size but the bed really comfortable. Furniture was modern and bright. The bathroom and shower were compact but adequate for what was needed. The only down side was a lack of variety of food in the restaurant.... More

I stayed here for a night with a group of friends and it was a comfortable stay. The hostel was modern and clean, just like the room. Bed was comfortable, bath room and shower a bit small but okay. There is a safe in the room. Breakfast was great, enough choices. There is enough free parking and the metro station... More

I stayed here for one night in April 2014 to attend an event at the Exhibition Centre in Cologne. It was rather pricey for a youth hostel, but saying that, it is probably the best youth hostel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were excellent, clean, light and I was lucky enough to have an excellent view over the... More

We stayed in the hostel with a large group with New Years Eve 2013 for 3 nights. The room was very good - modern furniture, a good bed, a very nice bathroom and it was clean. But the meals were not what we expected. We have stayed in more Youth hostels and we know, that we can not expect a... More

When we first arrived (we couldn't check in @1:30) the lady at the front desk opened up a map for us and highlighted the student quarter, explaining we should go there to meet other young people. We were initially puzzled, but after we actually checked in we found that the "youth" hostel's patrons were generally families with young children, middle... More
