    Good location, only few meters away from train station. The bed is comfortable and the room is warm enough. Will be my first choice if I come to Aachen again.

    All in all I was happy with my stay a A&O Aachen.VERY close to the train station,(a great place for train spotters) 15mins from room to platform,you can not get better than that..However,there is always a however.I was disappointed not to find a safety locker in the room.Travelers do NOT need a Television in the room although this room had one,but the do NEED a locker.The hostel would have got full marks from me had there been one

    It was a very good place, and very cheap. Only downside was that you had to give a deposit of 20 euros to access the guest kitchen, and there was no common room as such, only the lobby with some places where you could sit down.

    This hostel felt a bit sketchy to me, but it's right outside of the train station and very inexpensive. The staff were friendly enough and they have a bar with food and drinks available. It felt a bit insecure to me as people could just walk right in and there were a lot of people hanging out in the lobby.

    Pros for this hostel: + Cheap (15 euros + bed sheets or something) + Clean + Reasonably cheap parking near the hostel if parking lot is full (12.00/day at the train station) Cons for this hostel: - No community feeling in the lobby - I personally found aachen quite boring ;) Note: my stay was during the Corona period

    Good enough for a layover. But no soul or atmosphere. WATCH OUT! They charge extra for bed linen and sheets! It is only in the fine print at Hostelworld! There is no explicit warning before booking... Hence price is about 30% higher than mentioned on HW!
