Property Description

Since February 2013 the a&o Koeln Dom presents itself in a new light! With new, yellow exterior color we give our guests a warm welcome. Arrive in the spacious lobby area and check in at the front desk. After the renovation, each of the rooms now offers modern bathrooms with shower/toilet in a familiar, high-quality a&o standard. The newly designed breakfast room with the -Cologne look- and free Wi-Fi on the ground floor now invites guests even more to taste the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.
The a&o Koeln Dom is very central. It's only 100 meters to the Central Station and the Cologne Cathedral. The Cologne Altstadt is just 300 meters from the hostel. With its central location the a&o is easy to reach by car, train or bus, and is the ideal starting point for excursions into the city.
In the small a&o Koeln Dom you'll experience the cheerful Cologne spirit and have an inexpensive and central spot from which to discover the Ruhr capital. Due to its central location right in the middle of the city centre you can admire the numerous sights. The excellent transportation connections also make it just a short distance to the trade fair grounds.

    i had a single room - had everything a decent hotel would, down to the team of very nice cleaners eager to help :) comfy bed, hot water, hairdryer, towels and shampoo - full package location is best, 2 min walk from Koln HBF, and you can hear bells from the Dome has couple of vending machines and coffe/tea in the kitchen (didn't use) overall - great value for money, if you're in town for couple of nights for business or otherwise - would definitely recommend

    My only complaint was that it was hot the weekend we were there so there was either street noise or overheating to interrupt sleep. Facility was nice and clean though!

    This hostel was more like a one star hotel trying to pass itself as a hostel. There was no lounge area, no breakfast included, no activities planned for travellers, security was a joke because anyone can walk in. I had to ask for a map, and they didn't provide tips on the best way to get around the city (buses, trains), they didn't suggest which sites to see - I had to rely heavily on Google. The only thing that I liked about this hostel, was that it was next door to Köln Cathedral.
