    It was fantastically located being only steps to the metro, or a few minutes from the train station. The supermarket was across the street and other places right around the corner. The staff were really friendly all throughout the stay. I liked that there was a kitchen so I could cook and make food myself. The rooms were nice and spacious and there were curtains on each bed which made it even better with own lights and outlets. I would stay again for my next visit to Köln!

    A great spot not too far out from the city centre. Super relaxed vibe and had all the things you need for a start in Cologne, right next to a supermarket, plenty of bars, a basic breakfast and there is even a kitchen if you'd like to cook up yourself. Thanks for a great stay! The only downside was that Wi-Fi was a little slow.

    A little out of the city but still close enough to everything, friendly staff and clean facility. I felt safe and comfy here especially in the kitchen/chill area, was a little annoying that the WiFi didn’t work their but understood the motives to it. Overall was ac good stay and would recommend:)

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. 5 minute tram ride to the cathedral, super easy. Large supermarket across the road. Wasn't the nicest area in Cologne but on a super busy street so didn't feel too unsafe. Busy street and the fact that the hostel is above McDonald's made for a lot of noise during the night, particularly on Friday and Saturday night. No storage lockers in rooms except for a super small locker that costs €1 every time you open it. Bathrooms were clean.

    Quirky, smelled bad and overpriced. Came here with a buddy, would not come back. Best: good location. Worst: the smell. The shower rooms smelled like livestock had been in there, the corridors had a bad smell. Considering it was one of the more expensive hostels, we expected a lot better.

    We booked a two-beds private room and the reception gave us a 6 bed for two people. The organization could be better and the value of money could be improved. The atmosphere was not that good (rude and drunken clients who knock the doors in the night)
