“Too noisy and no AC”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I stayed here two nights and I could not sleep due to the noise from the road. The room was stuffy and air-conditioner were really needed. We had to choose between leaving the windows open and suffer with the noise or close the windows and suffer from the heat. We stayed in a double room, but the room was tiny. No wifi in the rooms.

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that. We do have two other hostels here in Cologne (City Hostel Köln Deutz & City Hostel Köln Riehl) which are located a little bit out of the city centre (therefore less noisy). Those ones might be more convenient to you guys. We hope you still had a nice time in Cologne. Best regards, Team Pathpoint!

It was the best stay in Germany that I had. The location is superb, staff is helpful, there's free wi-fi that works everywhere in the hostel (which is rare for German hostels as I found out). Security is also good and hostel provides everything that traveller may need. Rooms are clean, there are shower and WC in the room (and they are separate).

I stayed in this hostel for 4 days in a 8 person dorm and it was very good. The hostel has a very nice common area, a good kitchen and a nice place to sit outside. The rooms were clean and had very good lockers, my big bagpack would fit in there twice.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was ok. The location of the hostel is very good as it's only a 5 minute walk from the trainstation and about 10 minutes from the Dom.

Stayed here for two nights in May with three friends and enjoyed the hostel immensely. Room was cramped, but clean, comfortable, with large lockers and en suite showers. Located less than 5 minutes from the train station and the Cathedral. The hostel used to be a church, so the common areas are quite large and open. Beer at the reception is cheap.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the street to reduce noise.

A fantastic hostel! Very new, clean rooms, helpful staff, central and safe location. Overall one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Some people might have an issue that the wifi works best in the communal areas but its free! Highly recommend it!

Stay at this hostel for location - about a 4 minute walk to the train station (and dom), and I made it in two when I was rushing to make my train. Dorm on first floor was loud due to traffic and trains, so bring earplugs. Beds were clean but not overly comfortable. Lockers in rooms- use keys, so no padlock needed. Can rent padlocks (for lockers in luggage storage room) and a hairdryer from front desk and get your deposit back when you return them. I skipped breakfast because not included and can get cheap breakfast at train station. Average hostel, but location was excellent.

Decent hostel. Good, central location, reasonable rooms with good lockers and excellent secure bike lockup. Staff were helpful, and there was a nice large seating area downstairs. Breakfast wasn't the best.
