The property condition is bad - Wall papers peeling off; it is old style hostel with very small toilets, rooms etc. We booked a room for me and my wife. The location is walkable to Gare Du Nord(1 KM) and also metro station(Alvira - 500 m). The location is plus point, but there was a lot of noise of construction during daytime on 4th floor. The other go0d point about the property is its reception staff - excellent support. Bad property, good staff.
excellent property. Location is very good - near to city centre. Centraal station by tram 2/5 in 10 min. Tram station next to hostel. Staff is helpful, We had microwave to use, kettle to make tea coffee in our room. Locker inside room for keeping passport and currency. All in all very good hostel. Just one improvement area - the heaters were not warm enough even at maximum temp. Otherwise excellent.
Location a little away from Koln HBf but manageable. You must stay in this area to enjoy the calmness of the city. while markets and shopping joints are a 5 min walk away. The tram station of Zulpitherstrat is 2 min walk. Property is neat and clean and has a lot of character. Awesome place.
