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

    I would 100% stay here again. The beds are amazing—huge and with a privacy curtain. Great locker space. Free coffee and tea. And the location was perfect for the Christmas markets and just to wander and enjoy Cologne.

    I spent two nights at the hostel. Advantages: -free coffee and tea in the common area which is lovely -10% discount at the bar downstairs -the bar downstairs is a really lively place full of young people, unfortunately due to covid there weren’t any events, still a nice place for a drink and a laugh :) -the staff was friendly and helpful, we received some maps of the city from them -the bedrooms are themed and each and every one has a story behind it, which makes this hostel quite unique

    I loved every single aspect of this hostel. Best hostel ever. Everything was fresh and clean, rooms and atmosphere that is different in every room is worth to visit. I can say that, this hostel should be the second sightseeing place of Cologne after the Dom. Only problem was we didn't have a toilet in the room but on the floor, still it didn't bothered me as much. Totally would visit there again.

    Lovely hostel with amazing double beds in the dorms. Great staff, kitchen facilities are limited but free tea and coffee. It wasn’t that busy when I stayed so wasn’t that much of an atmosphere but still met some great people in my room

    The most comfortable hostel I’ve ever been to. Spotless clean and safe lockers. But there is no get together atmosphere and we can not use the hostel bar unless you pay for a Covid test, regardless if you are full vaccinated or not.
