The hostel is close to the main train station in city centre. the beds are comfortable with individual power sockets, and the kitchen is clean and fully equipped. free water fountain. The main dissapointment was that the wifi didnt work in bedrorms.

You arrive and then you get sheets and have to make your own bed. I have traveled all over the world and only in Germany and Switzerland do you need to make your own bed in a hostel. It is a horrible thing that such wealthy countries have such poor hospitality. Then staff was not so polite and there was... More

Thank you very much for your review. - Bed sheets: As you said this is quite common in Germany. We try to keep our room prices as low as possible. However, you may know that the cost of labour is by far higher than for example in the east. Therefore, you can't really compare the situation here to other places... More

Rooms were clean, staff was really friendly and helpful. While the breakfast wasn't as complete as in other DE youth hostels, the price was reasonable and the food was good. I did see where they have a really nice kitchen that one can use. Easy walk to Koeln Hbf. They also do have limited (and expensive) car parking. There is... More

The main essentials are great. The rooms are clean and comfy, as well are the bathrooms. They have the best kitchen I've had in a hostel. The atmosphere isn't very fun, it's pretty much just a place to sleep rather than hang out with people. The wifi is a hassle, it only worked on the main floor so I had... More

It is a clean hostel, I liked this the most, then it is well located ( in few minutes you can get anywhere in the center), as a downside I will mention that the wifi password provided is available only 10 hours which is quite uncomfortable but I personally had signal in the room. The staff was also friendly.

The female dorm room is clean and well maintained. I arrived very early in the morning, but the reception guy kindly offered a bed place for me for early check in. Other staff are also friendly. It is only 5 min walk from the central station. Internet also works fine from the room. Very good value, nice hostel :)
