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

    This place is amazing. Not only are the staff super welcoming, but the facilities are also amazing. I saw all ages here. There’s a bar/café downstairs that was bustling (especially over the weekend) but you can easily avoid the noise if that’s not your thing. There’s also a cozy common room with the best all you can eat breakfast for 7.90. Complimentary coffee and tea as well :) the whole place was clean and felt very secure and was well located. I never leave reviews but place is deserving!

    Great price and we received a free upgrade from 10 bed dorm to private two bed room! Staff was so darn friendly and beyond helpful. Rooms spacious and comfy! Bathrooms super clean. Location is the beautiful Belgian quarter so nice to walk around to tram stops also. Warm atmosphere and you feel honestly at home. Can get breakfast from them for 7-8 euro as long as you ask the night prior. They keep your luggage for free if you’re early too! Can not recommend enough. Great room views too

    Outstanding Hostel! The rooms did a magnificent job of providing a cool vibe whilst also allowing each person their own private space. I was in the Shakespeare room along with 7 other people but you hardly noticed it! The curtain gave you a sense of privacy which was lovely and the bed was much bigger than any other hostel I have been! Slept like a baby! The shared living space on floor 4 was really cool! I felt very safe, secure, and relaxed with this hostel. And the bar was wicked! 10/10!

    The rooms are themed (ours was a circus) which is super cool. Plenty of privacy and the beds are massive. It feels more like a hotel than a hostel. That being said, there isn't really a communal area other than a 'living room' which is actually more like a dining room (tables and chairs for eating) so maybe not for those travelling alone hoping to meet lots of new people. For us it was perfect :) Highly recommend

    In terms of the dorm facilities, one of the best hostels I've stayed in (8 bed shared mixed dorm. The beds were double beds and each had a privacy curtain with a shelf, lights and USB charging ports. The staff were very helpful. It is about a 10 minute walk to get to the start of the main shopping street which leads into the city center.

    Very clean and nicely designed rooms. No kitchen to cook with but close to everything in the city. Beds were so comfy and private. Perfect for a little rest on your travels.
