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

I stayed here with 44 pupils and 3 other teachers. It was perfect for us - clean, spacious and with good food. The location is good, the staff friendly and even the bar had table decorations! The pupils were made very welcome and felt very comfortable here. Had we stayed in summer we could have walked from the city along... More

I visited this hostel between the 7th and 10th of December this year, with 63 students and 7 other members of staff. It was the first time I had stayed in a 'Youth Hostel' and was a little apprehensive about it. I certainly needn't have been worried at all! From walking in to leaving, the whole experience was great! The... More
