The bathroom had an awful smell. The room was tiny! You get a real hotel normally for that price if there is no fair in the city!

Very nice and clean! Helpful staff and nice rooms. Don't bother paying for breakfast though! It's not worth what you get (bread and spreads, cereal, coffee, milk, juice, and canned fruit).

Hotel staff are wonderful. Cery accomodating. Did not feel safe at all in this hostel. The room was very dirty. Toilet seat had pee stains and pubes. The shower had a clump of hair on the drain. On a euro tour and this is the most expensive and probably worst hostel I stayed at. Would not stay there again

This hostel was nice, but more suited for people who aren't planning on going out to clubs too much. After 10pm you must be quiet, you can't hang out with people from other rooms in your own room and there's not a very active bar area. As I was planning on going out it was a bit of a shame. But, if you're in Cologne to go sightseeing, I'd totally recommend this hostel!

We stayed for one night in double room with ensuite. This was warm and very clean. The bed was quite firm but these are new beds so maybe after a while they will soften up. It can get quite noisy, you can hear other people walking around. This is close to the central city and walking distance to the train station and attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful with questions asked. There is only one kitchen with one stove top so It does get very busy. overall a good stay.

Had a great stay at this hostel during the Easter break! Staff were very friendly, but the cleanliness in the bathrooms could have been better. The rooms had a stale smell to it, but was bearable. Overall, very satisfied with our stay.

Nice attentive and helpful staff. Doesn't take long to get to the city center. Wifi wasn't great unless you were on the first floor. Other rooms seemed more modern on upper floors than they did on the first.
