+ A good place to stay, but typically for backpackers and low budget tourist. It was all very clean. - The breakfast was not included in the price and the bathroom was in the corridor, in common. More

Fantastic stay at this hostel. Working in the theatre made this even more of a treat. Beds were double beds and the curtains were great privacy. Shame there are no self catering facilities and the walk to the train station is a good 30 minutes but overall a very enjoyable stay. I would More

Cologne downtown hostel is the best hostel I've ever been. Everything is clean, the kitchen is huge, it's not a hostel for party animals therefore you can sleep like a log at night and you even have the wifi in your dorm ! The staff is highly professionnal. More

Ghost hostel, absolutely no atmosphere at all, common areas are typically vacant. Everyone that stayed there got super sick too, so cleaning may not be up to par. They say they're a backpacker hostel but I had to share a room with two old men in town for business who snored all night long. More

The stay at the 404 hostel was great. The house is a small,nice one. It's a good place to get to know new people. The subway is really near to the hostel so you easy get to the centre where all the sights are. Only the breakfast is small like it's announced. More

the internet will disconnect all the time, the slowest I've ever seen (even in the reception area) and they changed passwords and networks names every single day. It drove me nuts. More

The location and convenience of this hostel are excellent and the rooms were fine, as were the bathrooms (which are shared by a whole floor however). The place does feel a little like a warren, there is no lift access to the first floor and they charge by the item for everything - More

Although rather old, the Black Sheep hostel benefit from a smooth atmosphere. Dorms are spacious and the kitchen is free of use. Bathrooms could have looked a bit cleaner though. Nonetheless the staff arranged for our late arrival and gave us all useful information, which was really More

Lamentable and surreal experience at this hostel. I arrived on a Saturday night with my hotelsworld booking, there was a young guy with a huge nose ring that told me the booking is canceled. For what reason is canceled? "I do not know" Who has canceled it? "I don't know, I can help you". More

There is no kitchen at the hostel and there is absolutely no hostel atmosphere despite the bar. Very boring place to stay. The staff were ok, one of the ladies was really rude and did not want to help at all. The location is good, price is really good and clean. Also, not too many people More
