    One the nicest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The location is super central and you can walk to most places of interests from there. The room was no frills, but clean and comfortable. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful. The Biergarten is also cute! Only downside is that it’s pretty noisy at night, so if you are a light sleeper be sure to pick up some ear plugs from the reception. Thanks

    Everything great, only point of critique would be that the photo for the single room on the website shows a desk and office chair, neither was present in my room (which was a bit annoying given that I was hoping to do a bit of work during the stay).

    Located only a few mins away from the central main station. Check in could be done till late which was came in handy during the train strikes. Hostel room was spacious, each bed came with a socket to charge devices and open side shelves beside each bed for storage. Security lockers were outside of the room. Overall good experience. Only downside were the toilets and some showers which were in a very unhygienic condition (smelly and unclean surfaces). Other than that, no other major issues.

    The location of this hostel couldn't be better. When we arrived, one guest who was already in our dorm had made a big mess in the room and when we informed the staff they apologized and changed our room which was really kind. The food in the bar is really great and there's a good atmosphere in the hostel in general. The place is fairly run down, the bathrooms in particular aren't great, but overall would recommend as a cheap stay in Cologne.

    Overall the hostel was nice. Pros: Situated at a good location within 20 minutes of old town and 30 from the zoo and botanical gardens. The bar was nice and seemed like it would be a good atmosphere although we were only there until around 10pm. Disadvantages: At night until about 3am it was very noisy and hard to sleep. The bathrooms were not cleaned/maintained well and stunk to high heaven. This was definitely one of the cheaper options for our stay and it showed in places.

    Nowhere to lock anything in your room. Shower was really small and the water went everywhere so bathroom was always soaked after anyone had a shower. Staff wasn’t very friendly.
