No individual power plugs per bed and no individual reading light per bed so if someone enters the room, they have to wake up everybody because there is no small light But very clean and beautiful hostel, nice location, ideal when you are with your car in Cologne

Though I stayed for only one night, it was very pleasant. The staff was helpful, the rooms (and bathrooms) were really clean. Great location (right in the middle of the city) and very close proximity to the tram (30 seconds of walking). All in all, it was great value for money. Definitely recommended.

Located on the edge of the old town in the shopping area. There is a supermarket located in the same building. Clean and tidy rooms, good bathrooms. Good wifi, but you have to enter a lengthy password each time you log in.

Very good overall. Staff was very friendly. Bathrooms were great as well as the rooms. Found it a bit hard to meet people but it was probably because it was quiet when I was there. Loved the city and atmosphere.

Great Hostel and easy to find from the main railway station. Not far away from bars and restaurants. In the same building is a supermarket! I would stay again!

A really great, clean, friendly hostel. Wish I had the kitchen at my house! Convenient central location. Quiet, calm. Just what I needed after a week of hectic travelling.

Cologne Downtown Hostel is a fantastic place to stay. It is located right in the heart of the shopping district and a really short walk to the Cathedral and train station. The staff are really helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable, particularly Maria who was great! The hostel is kept clean and tidy and the atmosphere is really chilled. There are also great facilities for anyone who wants to save money by self-catering. Highly recommend this hostel!

Comfortable stay. Very clean and mostly young travellers. Rooms were nice, with a common table which was a good gathering place to meet roommates. However, no real lounge area where you can meet travellers except for a few sofas near the reception... therefore difficult to meet other travellers. Plugs for charging devices not placed in easy to access locations in room. Free internet that is fast.

The kitchen was great! It was the social gathering center of the whole place. The beds were decent but the real only downside was the bad wifi connection everyone was having.

We are sorry to read that! We will work on that issue. Best regards from Cologne

This hostel definitely felt different in terms of atmosphere. It's very clean and almost hotel-like, but the staff (Maria in particular ) were extremely nice and fun to talk to. It's in a good location as well. I found that the kitchen was more fun to be in than the common area!

Good all round hostel, could do with a bit more atmosphere though, maybe more stuff to do in the common room would help?
