    Location was amazing, right near the Central Station (hence the name) and the cathedral. Plenty to see/do/eat nearby. Staff was helpful with suggestions around the city. No bunk beds which is also a perk. Overall a great experience and I would stay here again.

    I stayed here for a week and it was a solid stay. It has the perfect location right beside the train station. The staff were helpful and the rooms and washrooms were clean.

    Honestly, the hostel was our favorite part of visiting Köln! The staff were so friendly and cheerful, there were lockers and comfortable beds, and the restaurant was AMAZING. We were a little underwhelmed by Köln itself (bad weather, pandemic closures/limits, very busy and not much old architecture outside the Cathedral) but we liked the restaurant so much that we ate here twice in two nights. Cheap drinks, lots of vegan food, and CHEAP. Also incredible location - 3 mins from cathedral & trains.

    After reading some reviews I was a bit scared about the Hostel but it was way better than expected. The bathroom were recently renovated and clean and the rooms were also clean and modern. The fact that there aren't any bunkbeds is a big plus! The main drawbacks are the lack of a kitchen and the location of the lockers outside the room.

    Greate location, nice place to stay for a couple of nights, but don't think I'd like to stay longer than that. It does offer good value for money

    Había un hombre grande en mi habitación que parecía estar viviendo allí. Los baños no estuvieron muy limpios nunca. No hay espacios comunes, el bar es privado, y una noche no podíamos usar la terraza y solo nos permitieron estar en una rincón del bar. No se presta para atmósfera de hostel. La ubicación es excelente y el precio tambien.

    Laundry facilities (4€ per wash) however only one machine for the entire hostel. The double room was warm and comfortable but didn’t seem clean. Cigarette smell in the hallway. Anyone can enter the hostel, the only security is on the bedroom door. Amazing location next to the station and city centre. Bar & restaurant also available! Sadly no tap water facilities and didn’t receive the best customer service however cleaning staff were very friendly and always said hello.
