The place was clean and tidy and bathrooms were great but be warned there is a kitchen with NO cooking utensils, just a stove and a microwave, so byo pots and pans and spoons, knives, forks, plates, cups. The WiFi wasn't great either.
To start off, we got about 1/3 of our clothes stolen from the laundry room which had a camera (so it felt secure, which is why we left them there to dry) but the camera didn't work and the management did nothing to extend their apologies. The fridge stopped working so our food went bad. Wi if constantly went out and didn't work at all in the rooms. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable but honestly we left with a very bad taste in our mouths. Location is not great by any means either
The hostel is situated 15 min walk from the main train station or 5 min with tram. Only one thing I didn't like: They have a kitchen but it is not furnished. There are no pans, cuttelry, plates or glasses. They have a stove, a microwave and a fridge but you have to bring everything else which is, for travellers, especially backpackers, quite a hard thing to do. A lot of people where disappointed by that. Outside of that, I recommend.
More like a Hotel than a Hostel! Lovely big room with a great view, very clean and comfortable! Not particularly near anything, but only 5 min walk to the bus stop, which is very cheap to use! Very helpful staff, and great social areas. Kolpinghaus was a lovely place to stay, and cant wait to go back and stay there again.
No wifi in the room, can only get connected to the internet in the lobby. The staff worked really slow- so inefficient. The location of the hostel is quite far. Especially bus is infrequent during weekend (once only 20 mins).
