Fourth time in Pathpoint Cologne was again a really pleasure for me. I enjoy this hostel every time when I'm staying alone or with my friends in Cologne, because it's clean, cheap, close to the city center and every time I got the chance to meet new people.

For sure next time when I'll be in Cologne I will stay again here and I will recommend it to my friends.

The place is all the good and bad things a hostel stands for. What can I say? I always prefer a hotel but on this one night I needed a place to crash near the station and this seemed a good choice.
On the positive side:
The hostel is literally 2 blocks away from Koln Hauptbanhof, so it’s very convenient, both for transport and proximity to the touristy areas. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was quiet at night, and included a large radiator (private double room).
On the negative side:
The bathroom was very cold because an old window didn’t close all that well. As usual in European hostels, the beds, mattresses and sheets are of the worst quality that Ikea can offer.
We paid extra for breakfast, but it was really poor and tasteless. The only thing about the juice that orange was the color –it was the most artificial beverage I’d ever tasted. I’d eat breakfast somewhere else.

I wouldn’t go back there. It felt soulless –perhaps due to low season poor occupancy.

Stayed in dorm room only for one night. Not too big room but its very clean and it had private bathroom. Its walking distance to all must see attractions and its close to trains station. I highly recommend this hostel.

Only stayed here for one night but it was more pleasant than my previous nights staying at a hotel in Cologne. The hostel is big with two buildings. It was very quiet when I was there so I had a four person dorm to myself for the price of a double room. Kitchen area, game room and courtyard looked nice for warmer weather gatherings. 5 minute walk to train station.

I booked a 4 bed private room . This hostel is an excellent value for money. Its clean and its staff are very helpful and polite. Moreover they also spoke fluent english. It is walking distance from all attractions of Cologne. For Friends and family this was one of the best place and much better then any expensive place that you will end up paying same or twice the amounts for much lesser services.

Room Tip: If you are in groups the more the merrier.
