5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I stayed here with some fine fellows in September. It's a fantastic place to stay for a stag do, rugby tour or gentlemen's trip away. For a small surcharge, levied by Security Steve, they let you do whatever you like. Much like the rest of Cologne (and eastern Europe more generally), it was essentially lawless.

The rooms were comfortable and very well appointed, with large receptacles available to drink from. We found that there was plenty of room for activities.

There are games (including pool) available in reception, which Reception Steve welcomes you to play at any time of day or night.

Highly recommended for a wild time!

My friends and I stayed at A&O during a British Beer Society trip to Cologne - it is well placed for a number of the pleasant shopping streets and there are some interesting bars full of men very happy to help where possible - we even had one offering us a free trip to a sauna which was nice of him.

Good place for all really, and decently priced when compared with the rest of Cologne.

It is likely that you will need to take a taxi to the old town, unless you get a lift with a nice man of course

Very clean hostel one minute away from Rudolfplatz (from where you can take public transport to any part of the city), free wi-fi in the lobby, and great sleeping quality, since the hotel is not located in some kind of bulevard. I have stayed there for two nights. The 4 bed room that I was sleeping in was not very big, but I didn't have any problems with that since I spent there only 7hrs per day just to sleep.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

As a general observation, we found there to be a real lack of atmosphere, but that was soon the least of our problems. After checking in and being assigned a room on the 5th (and top) floor, we entered the room to find it was like a green-house. I.e. with 3 huge windows, it was literally like a sauna. We asked to be changed but received a fairly unhelpful response and were given 2 small fans to use.

It was impossible to enjoy our stay when the room was so warm. (I should add, we were in a separate 2 bedroom room paying just over £90 per night for 3 nights.)

In summary, we got off to a bad start with the room and things never improved.
The main positive with this place was the location, which suited us however there are other similar hotels/hostels literally a black away that were in much better condition and were much cheaper.

We feel we paid a decent amount of money but received a very sub-standard accommodation 'package' in return. I suggest if you are looking for a room, look elsewhere. If you are looking to stay as a back-packer in a dorm, I cant speak for that.

Everything is clean. That's what we like about this place since it seems like a budget hostel. Beware though, it will be 3 euros for bed sheet unless you bring your own. Overall, the staffs are nice. The location is great, just a couple of Tram stops you will be in the center of Köln.

Located centrally. Rooms are decent and clean. Breakfast spread decent. Reception has free internet. Though we had booked a room for four, only two beds were made. Noise from the surrounding rooms was another drawback.

Overall a decent budget option.
