    I liked it here; it isn’t a modern hostel however I liked the decor! It was a nice homely feel. I stayed in the ‘women’s room’ and it was so spacious! The curtains on the pods are a great idea. Downside: the WiFi barely works. Breakfast is included too which is nice! Tips to improve I would say the lockers could be bigger, and the smoking area could have potential with some flowers benches this would be great in the summer! Cologne is a great place to be!

    Super friendly & fun hostel! Great location, easy to get to the centre of town, transport runs 24/7. The rooms are interestingly decorated and clean enough. The kitchen and bathrooms are good. Security is good, they give you a code to get in the door. Really nice & helpful staff! Two tiny complaints: the bedframes are VERY creaky! You can purchase earplugs at reception to help with this. Also between 12-2pm the bathrooms are closed for cleaning - no toilet or showers allowed in that time!

    A great place with real traveller's atmosphere and extraordinarily friendly and caring staff. Decent facilities, but weak WiFi. Hint: There's a free public WiFi accessible in that area, which isn't great, but sufficient.

    We found the location to be very good, not too far from the centre, as well as reasonably close to some nice green spaces. Staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was good, our first night there was a tapas night in the common room. The common room was wifi free which meant people interacted a lot more. Breakfast was basic but fine. The kitchen was a little lacking, very little bench space, only a couple of (not) sharp knives, and bad frying pans. The showers were also a little lacking.

    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.

    Staff are all great! Really friendly people. Location is close to town but on the main road which makes it a little noisy to sleep. Unfortunately not enough lockers in the room even though website says they are available. This was a little annoying because I was travelling with my laptop and camera gear. Kitchen has everything you need for cooking but no wifi in common room.
