“What you'd expect from a hostel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We booked here as is was cheap and seemed a good location for the Christmas markets. It was an ideal location (10 min walk from station and 10-15mins to the Dom) and as we literally slept and showered here the lodgings didn't bother us.

Bedding seemed to be clean, though the rooms could have done with a dust and vacuum. Shared bathroom was basic but quite clean. Meant to be a non-smoking building but there was a very strong smell of smoke in the air. Friendly and helpful check in.

Expect hostel standards and you won't be disappointed

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing onto the street. Windows are not double glazed so you hear all noise - and there...

Spend there one night during a business trip because the entire city was completely booked. It was sort of clean and very basic. I was helped very friendly at the reception. No wifi signal on the higher floors.

We arrived at this place at 2.00pm having reserved a room for 2 people. We were cycling and therefore had 2 bikes and we were told that there was absolutely no place for the bikes and the room was not ready but we could have a look at it anyway. It was 2 floors up very steep stairs so taking the bikes up was not an option. The room was disgusting and even when cleaned could not imagine it being acceptable. We were finally told we could keep our bikes in a room behind the reception but that it would not be opened until after midday, not much use as we had an 11oclock train to catch. The staff were rude , unhelpful and the whole place stank of smoke.Even though we could not stay there they charged the full amount. For not a great deal more money we found a brilliant little hotel that was perfect and would suggest that anybody considering staying here looks elsewhere first.

We chose this place because it was the cheapest in the centre of Cologne. The location was good, just 5-10 minute walk to the Dom, town centre and the train station. The price was very reasonable on weeknights but rises a lot on the weekend. The room itself was fine, quite spacious and clean. Our problem was that it was very very cold. The radiator did not do much and they only gave us each one small, thin duvet. On the second night however, we went and asked for more blankets and then it was fine. The other thing was that the hot water was very inconsistent, I had one icy cold shower and one that kept going warm to cool. No breakfast included but there were so many cheap bakeries around that you wouldn't want it.
