Hostel staff are vvery good and unserstandable. They are really helpful for everything. Facilities are in good condition. Rooms are pretty nice and clean. There is only one missing which there is not shower jells in the showers and not a big problem. All over, that one is a great hostel for staying in Cologne.

Secure (can have locker and padlock for free) and cheap, but all the rest was really bad. A LOT of noise from the street all the night, the reception is actually in the restaurant/bistro, therefore, there's no really nice atmosphere, no shared rooms and friendly entrance, games or something friendly to feel like in an hostel and meeting people easily. The staff is not so great, they take too long to answer you and they know nothing about the city, no shower gel and no hand soap in the washroom..

Nice and clean place outside of the core areas but right next to the metro. Super friendly staff. Cafe on main floor and a really cool bagel place up the block!

First time in Germany and the atmosphere and vibe of the hostel is great. There's a bar/cafe attached to the hostel and a convenient location with the train stop right outside. Also, there's a supermarket and restaurants/fast food in the general area. The rooms were clean, the beds comfy, and overall, a very pleasant stay.

Enjoyed my stay. But more like a hotel, as there was no kitchen facilities. Is u wanted a lounge to hang out in, you have to go to the reception area which is in a different building. But overall guite a nice place if u just need a place to sleep at night

Great place, very nice location! We booked it last minute and the staff was very friendly and helpful! The breakfast wasn't free, but it was all you could eat for 4€ so it wasn't too bad! Wifi didn't really work in the rooms but worked really well in the lounge

Really nice staff, only minus that I put sandwiches to the common kitchen to have breakfast as I was leaving 5 am in the morning and kitchen was till 7 am closed, so even id it's really hot and you need yr food early don't put it there.. Other thing...it's a street with many bars and discos so if you're looking for a quite stay, don't sleep here, otherwise everything was perfect

I really enjoyed my stay here! The staff is really friendly and glad to give you tips about Cologne. The reception bar downstairs is nice, it has good coffee and very cheap beer. The hostel is very conveniently located right next to the metro station entrance, you can't miss it. I forgot some of my belongings to the hostel. The staff was really helpful and sent it to my home immediately, which was very nice! I will definitely come back when I next visit Cologne!

I really liked how the rooms had an ensuite. During my stay it was heavily raining outside so I really enjoyed sitting in the café downstairs as well- it has a really cool vibe.

Great place with excellent service. Breakfast was always good and it was a nice quiet place to stay in Koln. Cannot praise the employees enough for their nice attitudes. Would return there again no problem.

Everything I needed. Just a few steps away from the underground on a busy street full of bars and cafes.

I couldn't have been happier with my stay. There was a lot of walking to get to the sites but also a lot of restaurants and a beautiful park in the area. The cafe on the bottom floor is extremely charming. Staying here made me feel like I was rich.

Pleasant stay. The floor I stayed on had only 1 toilet and 2 showers split between 6 people, but it never became a problem. Also, it is 4 euro for the breakfast and it's worth it! Variety of options from cereal, coffee, cheese, hard boiled eggs, and salami.

The hostel was amazing! The fact that it has its own real cute café/bar downstairs is really nice. It had a very laid-back atmosphere. Everything was clean, sheets were already on the bed, rooms had big windows, were quite roomy. Check out is at noon.Only thing is that the kitchen closes 10pm-7am, so that was a bit annoying. The neighborhood is fantastic, but quite far from the center if you're walking at least. It's a nice walk though, so if you have the time, do it! Otherwise, no complaints!
