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.

    It's a nice, clean place to stay located very close to the station. There is a good kitchen area where you can quietly make your own food and do your work. I faced some problems on the second day when a group of students came and made the place extremely noisy and uncomfortable. My friend's bag of slippers were stolen and I think it was a prank of those drunk people. Please take care of such groups. But I would still recommend this hostel to all fellow travelers!

    Very helpful staff who were always happy to help. Kitchen and communal area were great. Was on the 4th floor which meant a lot of climbing. This wasn't an issue for me but would be something to consider if you do have difficulty climbing stairs. The hostel potentially has a solution if you let them know when booking - not sure as I didn't have to.

    Stayed here for one night. Had to make our beds on our own and the linens felt very plasticy and sterile like in a hospital. The lockers in the room and swung open without any notice and it blocked the door to the room. Wouldn’t love to stay again
