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

    Really unique hostel! Each room is different, and there's pictures and a description outside each room, which is neat. Clean place, beds (at least in the room I was in) were huge, bigger than the average hostel bunk bed. Can't speak on the atmosphere as I was only there for 12 hours, but the bar seemed to be a nice place to socialize.

    The gentleman Hasan who checked me in was right, this place spoils all future hostels for me. I stayed in the women’s only dorm, ballerina. Perfect amount of privacy, larger bed, tonnnns of space and pretty quiet. I started my day late both mornings I was so comfy. The toilet was a littler further away then I would like, and though I never had to wait, I would imagine when it’s fully booked it becomes a problem. Always clean though. The breakfast was nice, but not worth the price. Would return

    Amazing! One of the best hostel I have been so far. Lots of things to do, a bar, theatre and much more. Rooms are clean, great facilities, vegetarian and vegan breakfast for a great price. Staff was really friendly. The location of the hostal is great, just a few meters you have the tram to move around the city. Overall, an amazing place to stay!

    The unique room styles make stayong at the wohngemeinschaft an experience. The rooms and bathrooms are super clean and comfy and you can find everythjng you need. Towels, even a hairdryer. The people were super friendly. Its not one of these hostels where you socialize and meet tons of people. The wohngemeinschaft bar is right downstiar for socialzing though. Also. First veggie hostel i stayed at, and I'll have to say im impressed

    The ringer at the front door was broken and I couldn't connect by telephone. I encountered others at the door who couldn't get in. Once in, it's not obvious to take the elevator to the 4th floor. Otherwise everything experienced was very positive and the room was great. The music (bass) from the bar on the first floor was pounding until late but I slept well nonetheless.

    It's an ok place to stay in Cologne. With Corona going around it's hard for a hostel to be a hostel with everyone in masks, etc. However, staff was friendly. This review is for a private room booked in Mid June. It was warm, on the top floor and the little windows were not enough to cool things down. No curtains or anything to block the sun. So at sunrise (around 0600) it was already very bright. Also the bed was pretty hard and SUPER LOUD and creaky. Last, only 2 toilets for a whole floor?

    Zero atmosphere. Not for young people or backpackers. This is a nice place for old and elderly people to rest. Elderly man in my room snored so loud l could not sleep until 4 am. Feels uncomfy and very much like a hotel, I wouldn’t call it a hostel. Mildly pretentious, yet amazing facilities, most comfortable beds I’ve had ever while traveling and good storage unit with key included. Doors to rooms do not lock automatically which is a little weird.
