    My stay here was great! The staff helped me out and gave me recommendations for food and shopping while I was there! I loved that there was a shower area strictly for women, that made me feel more safe.

    Staff were phenomenal. They took us to the park on Sunday, suggested some really good local food and let me borrow their personal laptop when I was having phone issues. I loved the privacy curtains in my room and felt safe the entire time. Only complaint was that the wifi sucked, however, it’s such a social hostel that I didn’t mind not being able to connect to the web, as we were always doing something. Right next to transit, grocery store and McDons. Would definitely come again!

    Very nice hostel situated in a good area of Cologne. It is clean, breakfast included and beds have a courtain, a lamp, 2 plugs and a shelf to put your valuables things while you sleep. It also has free lockers inside the rooms. I'd probably stay here next time

    Booked an impromptu trip to Cologne and was overall pretty pleased with the hostel. Admittedly, I do have a terrible sense of direction, so I found getting into the hostel a bit confusing - turns out the door is very stiff! Also the showers flooded, however the staff sorted that out. Overall, it was pretty decent and good value for money.

    very close to metro. not very close but walking distance to cologne cathedral and good bars. supermarkets around the hostel. hostel is in very busy road. so if window need to be opened , there are a lot of noise inside the room. after i prepare my bed, girl came to the room and ask me who am i. group of girls stayed in the same room.they were expecting their friend. staff put me to this room. hostel need to be carefull about this kind of thing or not allow group without book all bed in room.

    When I arrived I was told I had to pay in cash because they don't take card, was lucky I had cash. When I arrived the bed I was supposed to stay in was dirty and the linens I was given were dirty and the pillow was not even a pillow, it was a lumpy mess. The womens room was stinky and unclean, and the air was really stale. On the plus side it was cheap
