We're a little out of the ordinary here at Pathpoint Cologne Backpacker Hostel. That's because our hostel's inside a heritage-listed former church, yet it's super-modern. In our huge communal space, you'll find loads of tables and chairs – ideal for eating dinners cooked in our shared kitchen with new friends from all over Europe and beyond. Make the most of balmy days out on our terrace with a few local beers – we'll even light up the barbecue.


You'll find us in the centre of town in the Innenstadt district, a 9-minute walk from Cologne Central Station. We're easy to reach from Cologne Bonn Airport too, just take the S19 train for 15 minutes to Cologne Central Station. There's plenty to see within walking distance on the hostel, including the Gothic town hall in Old Town Cologne, a 17-minute walk away. In the evening, jump on tramline 18 for 9 minutes to Barbarossaplatz, where you'll find the bustling bar-lined streets of Kwartier Latäng.

Rooms and Dorms

We keep things old school here, with separate dorms for men and women. There are also private rooms, though, so if you're travelling as a couple you don't have to split up. Sheets are included and all rooms have big lockers and en-suites with hot showers. If you haven't brought a towel, you can hire one from us.

Extras and activities

Our 24-hour reception means there's always someone on hand to check you in or out, and we can store your luggage too. We're full of insider tips on which areas of Cologne are a must-see and we'll kit you out with a free city map. Before heading out for the day, don't miss our cheap all-you-can-eat breakfast, or grab some snacks from the vending machine. You can hire bikes from us too, for rides along the River Rhine. Feeling lazy? Play pool, board games or scroll on your phone with free Wi-Fi in the games room.

    The location is super for only spending a short time in the city, close to the Rhein River, The Kölner Dom and the station(which also makes it noisy). The staff was friendly and willing to help. Facilities were very clean.

    Only stayed for a night but this is exactly what a hostel should be. Comfortable, clean, great location, lots of amenities and space to chill if you need some privacy. Great value for money. Highly recommended.

    Very clean and good value for money! Staff were welcoming and kind. Great location right by the main station. I'd say I wish the lights in the rooms were a bit dimmer so that when it's on it isn't so noticable for other hostel stayers, but I guess that's what you get in an 8-bed dorm room. Would reccomend for the value you get considering how cheap it is.

    This one is quite nice. It's a one-floor hostel, so it's not too big and that has a bit of charm. Facilities are great and kitchen available. Friendly and kind staff. 15 minutes from Central Station. In short, very recommendable.

    Great place great atmosphere but WARNING ! PARKING IS HORRIBLE and the only two solutions are to pay 4€/hour or to park in the hostel for 10€/night !

    Good location. Big and equipaded kitchen. Huge commum areas, what makes difficult to interact. Wifi doesn't work in my room. Computer pay to use. Beds and rooms are pretty good.

    Good hostel - has everything you need and the staff are super friendly. However, the internet barely works and doesn't work in the rooms at all which is super frustrating.

    The bedding they give you feels like cardboard and mine had holes in it everywhere. The lockers in the room are poor. The beds were made of a kind of plywood and were super noisy at night waking others up. There was zero atmosphere and weird social spaces. The walk there from the train station was simple but the area you walk info feels a bit dodge. The bathroom was nice enough though
