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

    Best hostel I stayed at in Germany. It has a fantastic vibe. The bar downstairs serves the local beer, Kolsch and at very reasonable prices. Each room has a unique theme, with curtains for each bed, large locker space, and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were kept clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Lot of perks such as free tea and coffee. I highly recommend this hostel.

    If you find yourself travelling to Cologne (Köln) then do yourself a favour and book your stay at Die Wohngemeinahaft! Located in the Belgian quarter this gem of a hostel has all you could ask for, staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was authentic with plenty of vegetarian options, facilities were great bar was awesome. Very underrated German city and well worth a visit, I was there for a night before exploring the rest of Germany but I wish I could have stayed longer in Köln.

    This is honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed at!!!! Everything is just so perfect and well done! The breakfast is so good and I'd highly recommend it! I really loved our dorm beds because they were in a like self contained unit where you could close the curtain for privacy. The bed was pretty big and comfy. The entire hostel is very aesthetically pleasing and very clean. The location is in a great area with many cool things to do and is close to tram stops so it's easy to get around.

    I was in the 6 person female dorm room (ballet themed, very cute) Receptionist was friendly and welcoming, room was spacious and every bed had its own curtain for more privacy, bathrooms were clean (although one shower had a slower drainage) The bar downstairs could get noisy as it is very happening. Overall it was a great stay and would definitely recommend it!

    The rooms were wonderful; nice curtains for privacy and big, comfortable beds. Facilities were very clean. I wish there had been a better common area though. The lack of a kitchen was also frustrating. There is, however, a cool language exchange that happens in the bar downstairs on Wednesday’s which was super fun. The location was great. Overall, though, I wouldn’t recommend for a solo traveler.
