Overview

A central location, on-site bar and knowledgeable staff – Station Hostel for Backpackers has all the ingredients for a perfect hostel stay. Check in at our 24-hour reception and get insider travel tips (marked on a free map) from our team. Our bar and outdoor beer garden are ideal spots for sitting back and hanging out. There’s free Wi-Fi here if you want to do a bit of research (or upload your pics to Facebook). We regularly host DJs or live music and show major sporting events on our big screens to get everyone rooting for their favourite team.

Location

You’ll find us opposite Köln Hauptbahnhof (the main train and bus station). From here, the S13 train takes you to the airport in 15 minutes. You’ll find many of the city's main attractions within walking distance, including the cathedral (a 5-minute walk) and the Museum Ludwig for art (an 8-minute walk). For nightlife, take a 20-minute tram ride to Cologne’s student district, Kwartier Latäng, and go on a bar or club crawl. To try out some of the region's famous beer, head to the Chlodwigplatz district (3.4km away) for its traditional Kölsch breweries.

Rooms and Dorms

All our rooms, including the shared dorms, are bunk-bed free! If you like the idea of having your own space, we've got single, double and quad private rooms, some with an en-suite. We’re spread over six floors, but don’t worry, we’ve got an elevator to take you up to your room. You’ll get free bed linen, and you can hire towels if you need them. Lockers are on hand for stowing your stuff.

Extras and activities

We do a cheap all-you-can-eat breakfast, and there's free tea and coffee to help wake you up, too. If you’re here for dinner or lunch, try traditional sliced bratwurst or pork schnitzel in our restaurant. Cologne's mainly flat, so hiring a bike is a good way to get around – and we've got cycle parking to keep it safe.

    One of the best hostels I have ever been. It was super close to the train station, the room was amazing and the staff was really there to help. I only had problem with the wifi, which was pretty unstable.

    A truly awesome hostel! I've met a lot of interesting people there and overall atmosphere is just top notch. Stuff is friendly and helpful. All needed facilities are present and in good condition. The only minor complaint is cleanliness, it could improve. Windowsill in my room was dusty.

    Perfect place to stay for a fun few nights. I was only there one night after an awful day and the attitude of the staff was just amazing, perked me right up again! The rooms were big and open. The showers kind of didn't drain fast enough and so overflowed, however that was my only complaint. The staff were fantastic and the hospitality was second to none.

    The hostel has a good lounge and bar/restaurant. I didn’t hang out there nor saw anyone hanging out at the lounge. I did make friends with the girls on my room. The facilities were nice. No AC but it was quiet enough to leave the windows open. Walking distance from the main station and many other attractions.

    Great hostel for one night. Location is good. It is not super clean ( there is a weird smell in the bathroom). The beds are a bit noisy but nothing major. There is no common room and therefore no ambiance. But the staff is nice, very welcoming.

    Very Good

    30 Jul 2019
    Location is very convenient. I stayed in a 5 bed dorm and was very comfortable. Not too noisy and the room itself was clean. Unfortunately, the bathroom in the floor was extremely stinky definitely more ventilation is needed and they tried to mask the smell with a deodorant that only mande it worse. I ended up with a headache. It's a shame, otherwise I would have beed very satisfied with the place.
