Not the greatest showers/bathrooms, but the hostel itself has a great environment. Kind of a far walk from anything worth seeing and not in a great location, but close to the train station.
Sebastiaan was really nice, and greeted us right on time. The hostel was clean and had coffee, so we were happy. Not too far of a walk from the city centre. Overall 8/10, would recommend.
It was a pleasure to spend the night in this Bed&Breakfast. Coffee and tea included, fridge stocked with yogurts, meats, cheese, and milk. There was also bread and a toaster. Not too far of a walk from the train station (about 15min), and not too far from everything you would go to Cologne to see.
The good things about this hostel were really good: friendly staff, there was a kitchen/fridge, pool, a plethora of movies to watch, a full bar, free breakfast, and free coffee/tea all day long. However, the bad things were pretty bad: since the hostel is in the middle of the red light district, keeping the windows open at night can be a bit noisy. However, closing the windows leads the room to be pretty hot. The bunk beds are made from metal and squeaked. Checking in for wifi was annoying.
The staff here is awesome - friendly, accessible, and generally really awesome people. The bathrooms were always clean, the kitchen they had to use was awesome and had everything you could need, storage facilities for food, et cetera. Always felt safe at the hostel. Overall, one of the best hostels I've stayed at and would come back again.
