Property Description

Our backpacker hostel is located at the edge of the city center. Beside our enclosed cafe, in the nearby neighbourhood you will find lots of nice, cheap restaurants, a bunch of stylish and old-fashioned bars, dancing clubs, theater, cinema, shopping, green parks for relaxing etc.

We are easily accessible by public transport. We offer low priced but comfortable accommodation, with friendly people in a good location and we hope everybody will feel very welcome in our house.

For self sufficient guests we offer kitchen facilities in the common room. But also our cafe provides opportunities to have a rich breakfast, a hot cup of coffee or tea with a delicious piece of cake in the afternoon, or a relaxing glass of wine or beer with friends in the evening. Our hostel is a very good starting point to explore the city of Cologne.

All dormitory rooms contain bunk beds and lockers. You can bring your own padlock or buy one at the reception. Most of the rooms contain private bath. Linen are provided, towels can be rented.
The fully equipped kitchen in the first floor is open for common use. You can store the food you brought in the fridge. For a small extra fee there will be offered a nice breakfast in the Weltempfänger Cafe.

    Small hostel / Cafe, for less than 20 euros you have a cosy clean environment, nothing crazy but all work. Only two metro stations to city center, metro is literally aside hostel door. Staff was nice, neighborhood full of restaurant and coffee. All good for my quick stop on the road to France.

    Weltempfänger was a perfect base for me during my business trip to Cologne. Unparalleled location, a lovely neighbourhood, and wonderful staff. Despite the intense heatwave, the hostel and rooms were very comfortable and did not feel cramped or overcrowded. Highly recommended!

    The atmosphere at the downstairs café/bar is brilliant. The breakfast was reasonably priced and tasty. The staff were always friendly and quite helpful. There was a pungent smell in the corridors of the 1. floor, but apart from that it was clean and tidy. The rooms, the beds, the toilet, and the showers were pretty standard for a hostel and rather clean. Overall, I was happy with my one-night-stay, and I would recommend it to people having a short stay in Köln. The location is also quite good.

    The hostel is very clean. Facilities are nice. Staff is very professional, but not friendly. Hot showers. Comfortable beds. Location is in a quieter neighborhood away from the busy city center, which I like. The metro is short walk. It’s really fast and easy to get around Düsseldorf. You need €3 for bed sheets. It’s not a social hostel. I wouldn’t recommend Düsseldorf for traveling.

    It’s a really good and clean hostel, though I think it’s poorly located, it’s at least 2Km away from any bigger partying districts and like 8 from the city center. It has it’s own coffee shop and pub with a piano, so it makes a great place on it’s own ti get to know people. Another downside is that there is no lift and carrying a heavy baggage through 5 floors of a thin stairwell is not pretty. Aside from the lift and location, it’s really great and clean. And it’s just right next to a metro

    This hostel was great, rooms / toilet & showers were clean, beds were comfortable. The kitchen was easy to use and the staff were so lovely. This place is located a bit out from the centre, but right nextto a station and you can get into the centre within 10 mins.

    A nice hostel. A bit far away from the city centre, however the metro is only like 100 meters away so no big deal. The staff was really nice and spoke fluent english.

    Maybe the hostel can provide earplug to the guest, as some of the guest may have super duper loud snooze sound
