    I stayed in the woman's room for 3 days. I loved the bunks and everything seemed rather clean. The atmosphere was great, quite cozy/personal, and although not much can be expected of the breakfast your stay here will definitely be worth the money. The location is quite good as well and the staff had some great recommendations on what to do in cologne. I'd definitely stay here again. (Side note: I do feel like the toilets might get clogged a bit easily)

    Great atmosphere, reasonable facilities – not ideal for summer months. We had the bad luck of arriving in record 41 degree celsius temperatures, and the rooms were not equipped for this – bad ventilation, no fans, and everyone woken up early by construction noise. It could have been nice to be warned about that before booking, or at least offered a discount. But come here for the vibe – the kitchen was always full of friendly people. No Wifi there though – they should add chairs to the hall.

    Had a great time here! My dorm room was very spacious and had beds with privacy curtains. My only complaint for the room was it got very hot but at the time Cologne was experiencing a heatwave. A fan might have been nice. The communal kitchen is a great place to prepare food as well as meet people! I met everyone in my room and ended up hanging out with a lot of them. Cheers for the stay

    I had a great time at this hostel. The common area and the kitchen are really small and cosy which I thought was a good thing because it made it so much easier to meet people. The beds have curtains which is great, I was in one of the rooms facing the main road so it was extremely loud all night but I did stay at the weekend so that would be why. The facilities are good, the shower is a bit funny as it sprays everywhere but it’s not too bad.

    Interesting hostel, the themed rooms were cool and clean and other guests in the common area were friendly. Lots of bars and clubs a short walk from the hostel so good place to stay if you want to experience nightlife.

    This was a nice place to stay for a couple days. The staff were fantastic and kept the place quite clean. The location was a bit from the center but still within walking distance. The atmosphere was not great but that could be because I was there mid week. Overall not a bad stay.

    An ok hostel. Good value for the price and I loved the beds. They were built to be more like individual pods instead of plain bunks.

    What we liked. - Location is good - The place is one of the cheapest in the city What we did not like - Staff member that checked us in was rude and smelt like alcohol - 8 bedroom dorm we were booked in was very dirty and smelly, 1 of the worst we have seen in our 10 month trip - Informed staff and we paid to upgrade to a 6 bed dorm, lost our deposit on original booking in the process - This hostel takes no responsibility for their bad service and dirty hostel, the pass the blame to customers
