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 Weltempfaenger Cafe.

Important note: We have to charge a city tax of 5% on top of the accommodation price. Exceptions can only be made for business travellers. If your stay with us will be work-related, please contact us directly.

Hostel sombre et sale. Malgré un personnel agréable l’hostel ne donne pas envie d’y rester. Les douches et les WC étaient sales, de même pour la cuisine commune. Les chambres n’étaient pas accueillantes avec du mobilier vieux et défectueux. En effet, les casiers étaient cassés et ne fermaient pas. Je ne recommande pas cet hostel.

Hostel's fine, but it's missing a core element IMHO: no real common room. Kitchen has a couple of couches, but that's not really what I'd call an ideal place to meet other travellers. The kitchen was not very tidy or clean and that didn't help. Yes there is a bar downstairs with excellent waiters (shoutout to Moritz & company), but a bar is not a common room for fellow travellers. Also, please get rid of the 10 sec button showers, we're adults!
