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 was great in a really convenient location. The reception staff were super helpful and answered any questions we had. The private room was a great size for 3 people and was comfortable with plenty of space for bags as well as us. One improvement would be the mould on the bathroom ceiling. It is difficult to prevent with no window in the room, so I understand how it has happened, but did not look the best. Would not stop me staying at the hostel again or recommending to friends.

Good hostel with spacious dorms. Lots of affordable restaurants and bars within walking distance and excellent access to public transport. A thing to improve is the lockers: they are poorly designed and cannot be locked properly using a regular padlock (or if they can it's really not obvious how).

The hostel was great. Private room was extremely spacious. The subway is literally outside the hostel door. Super close to Aldi and a lot of cheap tasty restaurants! Would highly recommend and would stay here again.
