By far the best hostel I've experienced and I've been to quite a number of them across Europe. Got a private double room and it was very clean and welcoming. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Definitely value for money!

I literally only slept in the hostel, but the bed was comfy and very clean. The reception staff was really kind and friendly and explained everything. It is also possible to checkout in the middle of the night, if you need to catch a train or plane. You can even get a small locker for your personal belongings and valuables.

Great place to stay! Loved the bar atmosphere by night and coffee shop by day. There are also occasional in house events like small concerts as well. Good vibe, and not too far from main sights of Köln. Would definitely come back to stay again

It was overall a great stay! Great atmosphere and people were lovely and happy to be there! It was a bit of a distance from the center, but there's a metro station right outside that is very useful. Would stay there again.

Really enjoyed our stay. I love the small hostel atmosphere. Also really well located, close to train and a 20/30 min walk into the centre. The kitchen was well stocked and mostly clean but the microwave and fridge need a serious clean. Room was spacious. Shower was powerful and bathroom facilities were clean.

Quaint old bar, but very old, creepy rooms. The rooms were perpetually cold, and the ensuite toilet I had was like the Antarctica. Kitchen/common area smells of Indian spices that lingers on your clothes when you hang out there. Staff were lukewarm, not exactly keen to assist you with questions. Being beside a metro station is the only saving grace for this place. Metro in Cologne in general is confusing. Anyway, would not stay again, and would not recommend.

Good hostel, reasonable atmosphere, useful kitchen. The breakfast is a bit pricey for what it is, but the supermarket is a minute away, if that. Wifi was oddly picky, it wouldn't load some basic web pages, but could manage to stream video, fine but odd. Easy to access by U-Bahn, otherwise not a bad walk from everything either.
