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.

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?

Very clean place, modern, great kitchen.. Felt more like an hotell than a hostel in terms of standard. The bedsheets had a very weird texture. There is a supermarket (rewe) underneath the hostel. The location felt very central, shopping street just around the courner. Friendly staff.

Easily the best dorm accomodation I have ever stayed in. Clean, spacious, excellent facilities, great location, and friendly staff who spoke good English.

Staff was super friendly, good location, nice kitchen and washing services, beds were made and towels were provided. Would highly recommend this hostel. Note- it is a little difficult to find, it is right next to the Rewe grocery store, once you get inside use the elevator to get to the 6th floor.

Very good location, very near to the church and the shopping street. The whole hostel is very clean. The staff is very enthusiastic. The best staff during my eleven days trip in Germany.

This hostel is really new and so are all of the amenities that go along with a new hostel. It was more like a hotel - very clean, comfy beds (amazing pillows) and a huge really nice kitchen. The location is a 10 minute walk from the train station. I would absolutely recommend this place!

Location is perfect, directly on Cologne's main street! It could be better explained, that the access is through the small door by Rewe. I had to call the reception to confirm the address, because on Hohe Straße 30 is actually a hotel and not the hostel! The lockers are inside the room and huge! I had no padlock and I could borrow one at the reception (with a refundable deposit of 10€). Rooms are really clean! Missing sockets on the rooms! Couldn't recharge my cell phone!

I had a great time staying the the hostel. It would be even better if you had at least one plug per bed in the room.

No electrical point by every bed, WiFi was good, supermarket downstairs was handy and short walk into main town and very close to station. not a party hostel, very clean and new and beds were very comfy. bathroom got quite wet after a shower as curtain not that efficient at keeping water in. Very spacious but lockers not big enough to put suitcase in but big enough for daysack and valuables.

A light and plug at each bunk would be very useful, just so the main light could be switched off even if someone wanted to stay up longer. otherwise this is a great hostel - brand new, staff are very friendly, rooms are clean, kitchen is huge and well stocked with dishes etc, washing machines work. would stay again!

It is so hard to find the entrance for the hostel since the address provided is a hotel beside.. I need to ask that hotel staff so that I can find the hostel.. However, it is so close to supermarket and metro station.. And the staff is so good, so as the common area - having piano and guitar - to play.. Also have kitchen..
