    I stopped at the black sheep hostel over carnival weekend in February, I met so many amazing people in the hostel and the whole weekend was just amazing, the hostel provides a decent breakfast and good security and value for money, I will definitely stop here next time I visit for carnival.

    Great hostel for the price overall. I was in a co-ed dorm and when I arrived and for the majority of my stay (2 out of 3 nights) I was in a room with only guys in it which was a bit unsettling but that was probably just my nerves. Would have liked to have been placed with another girl in the room if it was possible, but I was not too concerned about it. The place was in a great location! super easy to get to once you figure out public transportation! Would recommend!

    We stayed at the Black Sheep Hostel a few weeks after domestic travel restrictions were lifted in Germany, so we had the hostel mostly to ourselves, which I don't think is a typical experience! Everything was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked for cooking and such. The owner is really nice and recommended that we go to the Museum Ludwig, which ended up being one of my favorite parts of this trip. The hostel is in a fun part of town with lots of bars and restaurants too.

    Best staff I have ever interacted with in a hostel. Friendly, helpful, and fun. Hostel was very clean and very cool themed rooms. Will stay again if I am ever in Cologne.

    I came for Carnival in Cologne. The hostel was in a good location, near many bars and clubs. Public transportation was easy nearby and the grocery store across the street was a nice bonus. The hostel itself was not in amazing condition, but it did everything that I needed it to.

    Everything was very average. Staff welcomed me and did a rushed, albeit effective tour of the place. I stayed in the Swedish room, which had a good locker and comfortable bed. However, the room smelled a bit, the whole interior was very barebones, and the bedframes creaked. This is a cheap hostel so I can’t give it too much flack, but know what you paid for and you’ll enjoy your stay. Still a good value, but it might be better to look around if you’re looking for something a bit nicer.

    This hostel said that it was close to a lot of different aspects but it was actually about a 30 minute walk from popular areas. The man working at the front desk was not friendly and acted as though we were bothering him.

    I am not usually one to write reviews, but this is absolutely the WORST hostel that I have ever experienced. The host had a rude tone when I spoke to him before arrival and when we arrived, he assumed that we were not coming for some reason and gave one of our beds away so we could not all sleep in the same room. Then gave us no apology or anything to make up for it. The rooms were overheated, the beds were extremely uncomfortable, and the showers were disgusting. DO NOT stay at this hostel.
