The hostel was fantastically located being a 2 minute walk from the station! The kitchen facilities are a tad small, but clean. It's also the social hub of the hostel. Staff are friendly. There are no bunk beds in this hostel, which was a fantastic change!!!The rooms are also very well sizedI just missed the reopening of the renovated hostel restaurant and cafe, which would add to the atmosphere. I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Cologne!

The room we stayed in was very nice and clean. I mean that's all you can really ask for. Cologne is a very nice city, and I would stay here if I were to go again

Globaly a good place to stay for one or two nights ! 5 minutes from the station and from the beautiful cathedral ! The rooms are great and clean. For the atmosphere, not too much occasion to talk with the others people maybe because of a loud music all the day in the main room ? The staff is very competent but not so open and friendly...

Ideally situated minutes from the Main Railway Station and the Metro/Tram next to the Cathedral with the river being behind this is perfect for Cologne Boat trips begin in April again Staff are very helpful with local knowledge on duty 24 hours Bathrooms and showers all excellent I as it was my last two nights of travelling had the luxury of a private room with a wide opening window which must be hood in summer Basic breakfast is free and further items may purchased Just right!

The location and convenience of this hostel are excellent and the rooms were fine, as were the bathrooms (which are shared by a whole floor however). The place does feel a little like a warren, there is no lift access to the first floor and they charge by the item for everything - including individual ingredients for breakfast. There is a good sized and popular kitchen/ social area, but the facilities in the kitchen are not well maintained. The WIFI connection is very poor.

Good location, close to main train station. Comfortable beds. They have locker to store your backpacks if you arrive earlier than expected. Guy at reception was not friendly and insisted that I booked for 2 females when I clearly booked for a mixed dorm. But no big issue. One of the guys in our dorm told us 2 handphones were stolen the night before.

Great hostel to base myself for a weekend trip! Really liked not having bunkbeds and how close it was to the Dom Cathedral and train station.

Stayed over for two night in the weekend. Superb location, right at the city centers and a few steps from the Kolner Dom. Rooms are spacious, simple, and clean. Showers and toilets were reasonable, hot water was available throughout the stay. The only real minus was the WiFi service which is not available in the rooms, and is quite slow in the lounge and lobby.

Great hostel. Perfect location and super friendly staff!

Nice location, close to the station and the supermarkets nearby! clean linen and single beds. you can just lend locks and some other stuffs with deposit. Luggage room is big and you can store it by yourself in a locker. Hair dryer can be found in the toilet. Wifi doesn't work very well after 8-10pm, when most people are back, and the fridge cold at all. The lift only goes until the first floor, not the ground floor. After all, I think it's still quite a good value for money.

Very good located, would be better rooms have lockers instead of having them outside, beds a bit loud but grand that are not bunks, and value for money is not better because the fact of the breakfast is not free

Good hostel in a great location and all beds are single so no bunks which is good.. Wifi is good but only available in common area.

The best thing was location that it takes less than 7minutes on my foot. I got a good impression on their facilities. They had single bed, not bunk bed, and security locker and shower room. ( But you should bring your private locker to lock the locker.) One bad thing was wifi that i couldn't use it in my room ans it didn't work well in reception area as well.
