It marking two stars but when we saw our room, it's not like a two satrs hostel at all ! It was nice, clean and really new. The beds, look new and not a single stain on the sheet. The toilet and the bathroom are clean and new. The breakfast is the best, I didn't expect such a luxurious for the hostel. So we are really content to stay in this hostel !

We had a good stay at Hostel Koln. The staff was incredibly friendly and professional. The lobby had games for the kids as well as computers to use. Our room had bunk beds for the kids and a regular European bed for us (like two twins pushed together). We had a large shower, sink and toilet in the bathroom. The bed was hard and the pillows were awful. We were in room 308 which was noisy, being downtown and on a lower floor. Breakfast was terrific. Plenty of options and a play area for the kids. 176 € was definitely too much for what we got, but overall we enjoyed our stay. (We visited during the Christmas markets and rooms were scarce downtown!)

Room Tip: Higher would likely be quieter.

After booking a meeting and flights to Cologne we quickly realised that there were no hotel rooms that could be booked under €1000. After searching the Internet we found rooms here and after much laughing in the office we booked in to give it a go.

The hostel reception is new, bright and tidy and much like you would expect at a small hotel. Check in was easy and I made my way upto my room. I had booked a private double with own bathroom.

The room was basic with just the beds, desk and chair. The room was pretty stark and smelt of cleaning fluid but was very clean. No soft surfaces as the floor is wipe clean! There is no curtains but the are built in blinds in the window, so as soon as it is light you are awake. Pillows are terrible and could do with replacing by better ASAP. The bathroom was a surprise, very clean and modern. To be fair the bathroom was of better quality than other hotels that I have stayed in. The Internet connection was excellent and free which was a bonus. Noise is a problem as the floors are hard, you can hear clip clopping from upstairs. Also it's a hostel so there are holidaymakers having a great time - so it can be loud, but I kind of expected that and it sounded like they were having fun.

Breakfast was good and served in a nice and bright room. Hot choice was scrambled eggs but lots of cold options.

The whole place was clean and tidy but a little soulless. Prices seem a little expensive for a Hostel and for another trip I have booked elsewhere.

Very pleasant staff, very helpful! Breakfast room light and bright with good breakfast for this hotel category. The problem for me was, no sleep without ear plugs. Very bad soundproofing. You hear every step from the corridor, and adjacent rooms. Would not recommend to any 'light sleeper'.
