Property Description

Welcome to the hostel die wohngemeinschaft.
The hostel for special live-in experiences in Cologne`s creative center, the Belgisches Viertel. Feel like you`re at home in one of our 16 rooms, which are unmistakably unique and full of charming details.

The Wohngemeinschaft isn`t just a hostel but also a cafe-bar as well as a theater. We are conveniently located amongst other Bars, Clubs, Restaurants, small shops, Galleries, Theaters and much more. Even native Cologne-ites will envy your good times.

Whatever your heart desires, you`re in the right place!

Stay with us for as long as you`d like...
Make yourself at home in one of our eight rooms. Each one has its own character and charm. You can choose between the glitz and excitement of Bollywood cinema, the austere beauty of a cabin in the woods, the adventure of a boat-bed, amber-bejeweled decadence fit for a princess, the anticipation of the theater`s red curtain, the innerworkings of a poet`s psyche, a stylish photo studio, a 60`s mod chill pad and many more.

We offer two-, three- and four-bed rooms, as well as a dormitory-style accommodation. This accommodation has extra wide (140 cm) beds, as well as curtains and lockers for your privacy and belongings. The hostel is located on the top floor of the same building as the Wohngemeinschaft bar. A spectacular view over the rooftops of the Belgisches Viertel (Cologne's Belgian Quarter) awaits your arrival.

At the center of things: Stay in the heart of the Belgisches Viertel
The Belgisches Viertel (Belgian Quarter) is Cologne's hippest neighborhood. Full of boutique shops, cafes, clubs and restaurants, there is always something to see, buy, experience and enjoy on the neighborhood's many streets, plazas and meeting points. Use the Wohngemeinschaft as your starting point for exploring the entire city: take a walk to the Dom (Cologne's world-reknown cathedral), visit one of Cologne`s many museums or have a picnic in the park. Most of Cologne`s attractions are reachable by foot, and for those that aren`t, there is a fantastic public transportation system waiting just outside the door.

Cafe, Bar, Theatre: the Wohngemeinschaft is many things to many people...
In our cafe on the first floor, we will spoil you with delicious coffee and wonderful pastries. In the evening, the cafe is transformed into a bar and is one of the most popular places for people of all sorts to come, hang out and enjoy the relaxed, upbeat atmosphere, friendly staff and wonderful drinks, like our signature beer (WG-Braeu), South African Springbock or a Vodka-Melon cocktail. Daily-rotating DJs provide the perfect aural accompaniment to the evening`s festivities.

In our theater, we proudly offer a diverse program of concerts, readings, plays and films. The intimate venue is big enough to seat seventy and showcase both local acts, as well as international gems. The theater`s carefully curated offerings present a nice complement to the city`s diverse attractions.

For whatever you`re planning, the Wohngemeinschaft is the right place to start.

We're sorry we can`t accept bookings of persons younger than 21. View House Rules

    The accomodation was very modern, clean and pleasant. The bed was comfortable, they provided bathroom towels and there were separate showers for women and men. There was free coffee and tea as well, which was amazing. The staff were all very friendly and flexible with the check-out time.

    Die Wohngemeinschaft is a great hostel! Staff are super friendly and helpful, the hostel is clean and the rooms have been designed with much love for detail. Also, there were lockers in our rooms to store our luggage and we felt very safe here overall. We only stayed one night, but enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely stay here again for another trip to Cologne. :)

    Wonderful place! The staff were friendly and helpful. Probably the best in terms of privacy in a dorm you’ll get for the money and setup. I only wish the room had some form of air conditioning but maybe thats just me being an American.

    Fantastic hostel! I would stay again if I am in the area. ONLY problem I have is the check-in process. They close at 2130 and you have to check in at the bar. on a Saturday night at 2200..... VERY VERY BUSY BAR which made it awkward to find someone to do that process. There didn't appear to be air conditioning so I imagine the summer will be quite warm. It wasn't too bad on my stay with the window open.

    Amazing stay here! I’m leaving a good review hesitantly. The directions I got from the hostel to the airport ended up being wrong. Can provide pictures for proof. I got super lost, missed my bus and had to stay an extra night. Should I have been responsible for myself and not relied on their directions, of course. I’ll preface that statement saying the directions the hostel provided from the airport to the hostel were SPOT ON! I didn’t have a reason to second guess their directions. Other negative things ab

    Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone staying in Cologne. So creative and beautifully decorated. In a cute neighbourhood (not RIGHT in the centre of the museums/cathedral so be prepared for a bit of a walk if those interest you). Almost a cross between a hotel and hostel. There was no place to do your laundry or cook your own food. However, coffee and tea were free, breakfast was offered for 7.90 euros, and there was a cafe/bar downstairs with a 10% discount. Staff were very helpful and organized

    Nice having a bar downstairs. No kitchen or fridge, but food is nearby. Beds are comfy in the 6 bed mixed dorm and very large.
