    I enjoyed my stay at Black Sheep Hostel and would stay here again. It has comfortable beds, breakfast is included, and I didn't have any issues with Wifi. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had to leave pretty early in the morning and there were no problems with checkout. While it is a bit of a walk from the City Center, there's an S-bahn stop right just in front of the hostel and it's a nice neighborhood. I found the atmosphere to be friendly for solo travelers.

    What a nice hostel! Very well located on one of the main platz of Cologne, surronded by good bars and restaurants, supermarkets and only few block walking from the main streets and attractions of the city. The staff were all really nice and friendly making guest feel as comfortable as possible. Also, all the hostel was really clean and they offer a nice and gentle breakfast! I would definitely recommend and come back.

    This is a small hostel with very friendly staff. The staff was relaxed and helpful. There were many small details I appreciated during my stay (tampons in the toilet etc.), they also have lovely artwork on the walls. The facilities are OK, as should be expected when staying at a hostel. I stayed in a private room which had simple decoration and a comfortable bed. The price of the private room was also reasonable! The location is great, too, you can get anywhere easily from there.

    The kitchen and reception are only open during certain hours. And they're was a lot of pressure noise. There's a grocery store right across the street. Still one of my favorite hostels. Very homely and comfortable.

    Clean and friendly, stayed in the women's dorm which was good. Plenty showers for everyone. Wifi did not reach the room though, had to be used near reception.

    The place was good. Although I had expected some basic amenities like Soap at the Washbasins in Bathrooms etc. Bathrooms were moderately clean, but I can live with that considering the price I paid. The Room was good but the door handles require some oiling. The locks don't open immediately. I struggled almost everytime.

    The employee working when I arrived was very unfriendly & unwelcoming. Just because it was his time to clean he wouldn't accommodate me or the 3 other guests when we asked if we could leave our bags in storage until he was done and we could check in. The wifi didn't work at all. The kitchen/lounge area was so small and nearly impossible for more than one person to cook at a time. At least the other guests were nice and made the overall atmosphere better. And the women's dorm beds were cozy.

    The bathroom was really far away from our private room and it was annoying going to the toilet during the middle of the night :// an en-suite would’ve been nice...

    This hostel had absolutely no atmosphere, it was dirty with poor facilities and the staff weren’t very friendly! The location however was pretty good easy to get to everything you wanted to see.
