The hostel has a great location (only a few minutes away from the city center). The staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were in perfect condition and had everything we needed. The breakfast buffet didn't have that much options but it was pretty well prepared.

Stayed here last year - actually for a stag do. Brilliant hostel. Clean, modern and fresh. Slap bang in the middle of Cologne. Breakfast was simple but spot on. Really impressed. Would definitely re-use. Staff helpful and good fun. Used by all manner of guests - families staying as well as groups. Really impressed.

The name is not good: this is a HOTEL not a HOSTEL. It has regular rooms with bathrooms and regular beds, no dorms. I understood that there are 4-bed-rooms, but the concept is a hotel concept. The receptionist explained that it is a 'hotel with a hostel concept' :) And it is quite a good hotel...a surprise: Reception staff and... More

This hotel is cute, clean, well priced and conveniently located in Cologne, close to the city Square (~1.5 km walk, 10-15 min) and close to the city's shopping district (esp. during the holiday season you can easily hit all the Christmas Markets scattered throughout the town to get your gluhwein fix). The breakfast is really great and the staff was... More

We stayed here as a family with two small children (3 and 6) from Thursday to Sunday. It was a most pleasant experience. The young hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the place is very very clean and tidy.

Stayed here for 2 nights during a road trip with friends around Europe. The room was fine quite modern and has more of a hotel feel than hostel, nice clean bathroom with decent Wifi. The hotel location is quite far from the river Rhein and took about 15-20 mins walk and there's not a lot around the hotel in general.... More

It's a great hostel in a 6 floor building with big rooms and bathrooms. Very clean. We were in a private room without a locker inside the room, but we felt very safe. Windows blocks every sound around. WiFi was good, sometimes slow. Great breakfast! The only thing that could be a problem for some people is that there is... More
