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 dorm rooms were spacious and clean! Location is convenient if you travel around by tram as station is just 2 mins walk from the hostel! Best part - the bar :)

    Great hostel. Friendly staff, and some of the most comfortable beds I've ever had in a hostel - they are much wider than standard singles and it's more like a 'pod' because you can pull the curtain across. Occasionally a queue for the toilets (but not the showers). However everything was immaculately clean, better even than some hotels I've been in. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Cologne.

    Superb hostel, with the more friendly and helpful staff! We stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm. A very drunk guy woke us in the middle of the night by peeing on the floor. Bad experience, but the hostel was helpful and took care of it in a great way. They upgraded us to a private room, gave us free breakfast (which is delicious by the way!). This turned the negative experience into a positive one. I can’t wait to come back to Cologne and stay here again!

    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.

    I would recommend this hostel. I stayed just one night with my friend and we had a great time there. Besides the hostel, there is a pub, which is very nice to meet new friends. We thought the bathroom and the room were clean and nice to stay. The only thing that I wouldn't recommend is the breakfast. I think it isn't worthwhile.
