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. For those inclined to a more participatory form a transportation, bikes and longboards are also available for our guests.

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

    It's quirky and luxurious. There are thoughtful and lavish design details throughout the spaces, and each dorm has been designed by a different designer. It's very impressive.

    The best hostel that I have ever stayed in! The rooms are big, clean and bright with large comfy beds and HUGE lockers. Great security and a fab breakfast (even though I wasn’t offered bread!) Well located - I loved my stay and will book for longer the next time that I am lucky enough to visit Cologne!

    Very large beds, biggest hostel beds I have seen! The bathrooms were very clean! The bar downstairs was very busy, but a lot of fun!

    Very clean facilities. Feels more like a hotel than a typical hostel; showers are nice and clean, and each shower is housed within its own room with a locking door. The atmosphere is much quieter than other hostels, but the bar on the first floor is a great place to grab a drink. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hostel!

    Great hostel! The beds are double beds and super private with curtains around your bed. Each bed gets it’s own locker with a key. Check out was between 8am-12 which was nice for me but might be a problem if you are leaving earlier.

    Very lovely place to stay! About a 20 minute walk from the train station and town center. Very clean and beds were comfortable and the curtains provide a bit of privacy you don't usually get in hostels. Excellent place to stay!

    Book a spontaneous trip with this hostel. Although it's not extremely close to the centre, it's only a 20 mins walk from Cologne Cathedral. The things in the hostel is very clean to a point that I'm surprised with this price! Staff are helpful and nice. Sufficient privacy and room (with your own shelf and a lamp!) for your bunk bed with your own locker. There was even a couch in the 4 mixed dorm I stayed in to chill with other roommates. Def a good choice in Cologne if you're travelling alone!

    In terms of beds and privacy , this is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! The beds are MASSIVE and the curtains make it dark and cosy for sleeping. Showers were really good and completely spotless. I never had to queue for a shower or a toilet (although the hostel was fairly quiet in general). Breakfast tasty but a bit pricey. Free tea and coffee (and the coffee is good!) was a huge bonus. Only thing is, it’s not a social hostel. Bar full of locals and couples. I still made friends though!
