Not as good as some hostels I've stayed in, but it had an ensuite bathroom instead of a shower block, and was clean and hospitable. Main issues were location and lack of common area. However I get the feeling there aren't many better hostels in cologne. Would I stay there again if travelling through cologne? Probably

I would recommend a common room that is more attractive for travelers to hang out and socialise

The rooms were not so well-equipped: there was a single lamp so if you want to read or you need some light during the night you have to turn on the main lights. Besides our water closet was not working very well.

Nice stay, although our room (female 4 person dorm) was a bit cramped (not much space for luggage etc) and not much access to power points etc, lamp didn't work either.

Great hostel in quiet location. 30 minute walk to/from the train station and the cathedral. Helpful front desk staff.

Rooms were great but a bit small. No real place to meet others but fine for just a place to sleep. Nice and quiet. Front desk staff didn't really have any suggestions for what to see or where to eat.

I stayed here only for one night, but I felt very welcome. The staff was great, but there weren't lockable lockers in the dorm room.

This place was clean and even provided towels. The beds were comfortable. The wifi could have been stronger - I couldn't post pictures from our room. The staff was friendly and helpful.

More of a hotel than a hostel. If you are looking for a hostel environment I would not recommend. If you are looking for a more quiet personal experience this is certainly the place for you. There was many preteens on a school trip because of the hotel environment and I wasn't sure if they should be allowed in the bar/common room. They were quite disruptive with no one handling them. Location was great and facilities were clean.

Good, but not the best. Friendly staff, but small and hot rooms. You can rent the bike.

The hostel was in a decent location, everything was clean, there was no real atmosphere as the hostel appeared more like a hotel. But if you just want a cheap place to stay, it does the job.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy. The hostel is not too far away from the city centre, and there is a nice park nearby if you want to take a stroll. It was the World Cup final on the night I stayed so the atmosphere was great. A recommendable place to stay.
