Very nice hostel! It's right next to the central station, so it could be a bit loud (it depends on your room). But the rooms are big and the facilities are exellent.

They just could offer internet in the bedrooms!

Everything was quite alright, but the wifi was super slow, unstable and only in the common room.

It's really good. But if you mind Wifi, it's very unestable and only in first floor (common areas).

The location was very good. It was around the corner from the Hauptbahnhof, which meant it was a bit noisy from the train station, but not enough to bother. It also meant you were right in the city. I loved that I didn't have to take a bus or walk for a while to get to the Dom and city center. It was very convenient. The communal bathrooms and showers didn't seem the cleanest, but it was a nice place to stay for a few days

Pretty great spot, really convenient way to see the city. Has a bar but not really a social vibe but try have just been for our stay. Lovely staff!

Hostel was close to the station and cathederal which was good but the area itself seemed threatening, my friend and I go shouted at by strangers twice when walking between the hostel and the supermarket. Definitly not somehwere to stay if you're a young backpacker, most of the other guests seemed to be older men and entire families. Seemed like many guests were staying long term. Very few other travelers and the atmosphere always seemed a little threatening.

The place was great value for money and the location was perfect, literally around the corner from the Main Station. I was a bit confused about the lockers outside the rooms, however there were massive lockers in the basement which were great as I had a large case with me. I just locked most of my stuff in there in the end. The rooms were new and clean!The only negative was the toilet on my floor. Someone had been sick and it didn't get cleaned over the 24 hours I was there! Yuck!

Basic hostel in a great location 1 minute from the station. Room was ok but didn't feel it was that clean in the toilet. Staff didn't feel overly welcoming or friendly. No wifi in the rooms

The location of the hostel is perfect, it is near to Cologne main station. However, it is always noise at night due to many impolite travelers here. The staffs of the hostel need to supervise for quiet monition at night. It is really noise at night because many people drank beer, talked extremely loud at the lounge.

Kitchen makes cooking easy; hostel is five minutes walk from station and barely that to the great cathedral at the heart of town. Near grocery stores and cafes. Breakfast not included, but staff are friendly and helpful. Lockers are in the halls rather than in rooms but I felt secure with my bag locked shut under my bed. Beds comfy/huge pillows.

Great kitchen, and bar, good place to meet people. Large rooms, which were clean but the bathrooms could have been better but were really not that bad. Perfect location to explore from. Lockers were not in the rooms, rather in the corridor but were safe and secure.

This place is everything that a hostel should be. The kitchen is fully stocked, there is a great lounge area, as well as a bar downstairs open 24 hrs. Locks require down payment only, so you can take advantage of the storage lockers. There are plenty of shower rooms and bathrooms with plenty of room so your stuff doesn't get all wet. The staff is extremely helpful and laid back and perhaps most importantly, the location is >5 min walk to the cathedral and a great discount grocery store.

The community kitchen in the hostel was great. It allowed us to cook dinner ourselves which saved a ton of money over the weekend. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the beds were comfy and clean. Though I did not use them, there were plenty of lockers available to use.
