The room itself was clean, but the hallway was dingy and smelled strange.

Brilliant hostel, clean and the staff were extremely friendly. Only downside was it being a 40 minute walk from the main station but there are good transport links near by otherwise

The hostel was in a great location, right outside of a U-bahn station and in the middle of the trendy Ehrenfeld neighborhood with tons of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. The cafe at the base of the hostel was also very nice. However, the hostel area overall, especially the bathrooms and the common room, could have been cleaner, and there was only one small bathroom for the floor. Overall a decent stay for a weekend trip to Cologne.

Decent hostel. Nothing too special about it. Nice sized kitchen for guets to use, and very good breakfast (a little overpriced, perhaps). Friendly staff, and the big sites are about a thirty minute walk away (much shorter with metro). Outlets were attached to the bed with lamp.

So good. The hostel is right next to a train station that you can easily use to get most places in the city. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly enough. The rooms are minimal but fine. Very chilled out but not in a pretentious way.

Good Location, supermarkts and Metro are very Close. Beds are ok, although the bunk-beds are a little rusty and you could find hair from other guests above you.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Rooms are a good size and confortable, very good security and staff are friendly too. The hostel is based above a very cool bar where small bands and artists perform every week; I saw a band called Burkini Beach there. It's not too far from Cologne city centre but the actual location of the hostel in the Turkish district with loads of places to eat and drink close by plus an Aldi for groceries. Also the Metro is literally outside the door. Top Hostel!

Nice location with good public transportation, the metro stop is right in front of the building. A bit far from center but the neighborhood is nice too. The room was nice and clean, also liked the atmosphere at the bar. Wifi was fine, good signal but they should add some security to it. Good value for money, I would say again.
