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

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.

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.

Only stayed for one night in a private room, which was great value for money and nicer than some pricey hotel rooms. Would definitely come again, next time with some more time on my hands.

Being a youth hostel, it was everything to be expected: kids laughing and talking in the hallway late at night, drinking in he lounge area, etc. The heat in my single room never exactly worked, and it was not warm in Cologne at the end of December either! The breakfast, not included and one needs to pay for, was adequate and straight forward. A typical Germanic kind of breakfast! Staff was very nice, especially Florian.

Thankfully there are no bunk beds - only single beds. The kitchen is a bit dirty, as there are lots of people using it. Wifi was only available downstairs in the foyer. Location was fairly convenient - right next to the station.
