The woman at the reception was truly one of the best! If you have any questions about what to do or where to go out at night, definitely ask her. The area the hostel is in (Belgian quarter) is great to party in and she knows it well. More

I quite liked the facilities and the location, but the staff was so-so. They didn't warn me I would need to grab a set of bed sheets before going into the room (I even saw some people sleeping directly on the pillow and mattress without the covers). Which is annoying when you're on the More

Great hostel with many services and excellent staff, really the only downside was the fact that there was no free WiFi but that was only a very minor downside. Besides that I'm so very grateful for the help with the camera that was accidentally left in the room, but it was sent with more More

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 More

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! More

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 More

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 More

We booked a this hostel specifying we were going to arrive late (1 AM), and so we did, we arrived at that time. For our surprise the check-in office was closed! We waited (and knocked) for half hour, until we gived up and we started to find a hotel carrying all our luggage with us. More

The hostel was very nice all together :) The arrival instructions were very good, staff was very friendly and helpful. A small minus of the kitchen being so small. On the other hand kitchen was well equiped with fridge, gas stove, water cooker etc. More

The rooms were not so well-equipped: there was a single lamp so if you want to read or you need some light during the night you have to turn on the main lights. Besides our water closet was not working very well. More

I booked there because i've used A&O in Hamburg, but it wasn't at all like my first experience. To sleep one night it's perfect but don't expect atmosphere. Rooms were alright but ventilation would make it much much better. I think it was my last go with A&O More

Not only was I upgraded at no extra cost to myself, it was seamless! They lobby was quite pleasant and provided all necessities! The location was superb too, it was close to an amazing dining/drinking street (but tucked away so as to be quiet at night) and was also a hop-skip-and-jump from More

Clean, nice place with eccentric staff. But it is very quite, I would estimate only 20% of the beds were filled when I stayed for three nights in August More

Great hostel, included breakfast was nice, awesome rooms, good proximity to club scene. Staff were very friendly but weren't very helpful when I had problems with the wifi. All in all good value for money. More
