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.

I would not stay again in this hostel. The dorm are good, but the bathroom was smelling REALLY bad and wasnt cleaned during my stay. The staff was rude. The kitchen is fine but there is a stupid man observing everything and complaining at the minor sign that you will leave dishes unnatended. Not the best option at all. There is another hostel even closer to the central station. Recomend taking a look to this other one.

The wifi was horrible. Other than that, pretty good. Best thing about this place is that it is close to the train station & the cathedral.

Standard hostel which is good for those with stopovers in Cologne. It's location is the best you'll get, right next to the station and cathedral. No complaints.

We'll located, just near by from the center and safe. Roma are clean, but restrooms are not. Not a good smell in the 3rd floor hallway. Good equipped kitchen. Staff is polite but not too friendly. Atmosphere is good. Internet is terrible. We have measured it for 2 days and it was 1,5 mb download, which is very slow. Don't know if they had some technical issues when we were there, but it wasn't good at all. Had to go to a Starbucks to have a descent signal. Music is terrible. Ok for 2 nights.
