The hostel is located very near the train station, and is in a great part of town. It is extremely clean, and offers plenty of community spaces for travelers to socialize.

Staff members were also very helpful, and pointed out all of the necessary sights to see. Would certainly stay again.

The hostel has basic rooms but confortables. Their facilities are very complete. The location is perfect, 5 min walking to the train station. There is a multi kitchen you can use anda garden where to sit in summer.

Located within sight of Köln Hauptbahnhof (Cologne main station), the hostel is perfectly situated for late arrivals or early starts from the station, as well as exploring this most fabulous of cities. The staff spoke perfect English and are extremely friendly and helpful from the outset! Dorms were clean, and spacious, with each bed having a dedicated locker (and a big one at that) which works by depositing a €2 coin for your key, which you get back when you unlock… very helpful! Separate shower Room & WC were a plus! Breakfast was in the rather cavernous refectory, but was what you expect from a good German first meal… Breads, meats and cheese… and good coffee! All in all, a dame good hostel!

Room tip: Spend 2 nights... one was simply not enough!

The staff at the Hostel were warm and friendly from the outset which really influences a persons opinion of a place so it was a good start in that respect! You had to grab a parcel of sheets on they way up to the rooms to make your bed which was a great idea - less housekeeping, less staff, keeps the costs down for us travellers! I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm which had a clean bathroom and huge lockers which worked using a 1 or 2 euro coin. The hostel was only a 5 minute walk from the main train station which meant it was very close to the city centre and incredible cathedral. I had breakfast one morning in the cavernous common room, this was fine but it would have been nice to have some fruit there other than jams and fruit yogurt (as I am a vegan).

Wow - what a wonderful review. We really like the fact that you were explaining the "advantage" that guests make their own beds. We are very pleased that you had such a nice stay with us. We already received feedbacks that guests were missing fruits at breakfast. At this moment we are considering whether to keep the price low (without fruits) or change the price for breakfast and include fruits. As you mentioned earlier, we really try to keep the costs down so this is really hard to decide. :-) We wish you a nice of your travels and get home safely. Best regards from Cologne! :-)

Location is the best advantage of this hostel, it just 2 -3 minutes walk to Cologne Central Station Hauptbanhof, and 5 - 7 minutes walk to the huge magnificent Cologne Cathedral. In the city centre area and not to far from Rhine River at walking distances.
It also have helpful staff 24/7, with good affordable rates, quite spacious kitchen including cooking tools with adjacent dining room, and free bread in the kitchen when we stayed here. The room and ensuite bathroom were clean, although a bit small room, for four people in two bunk beds, each bed has own individual power point and good reading light. All good. If you ask any minor of this hostel, yes, the hostel have NO lift, so every one need to carry anything including heavy big luggage through the stairs. Not a problem for youth, as the aim of the hostel is for Youth Hostel.
