It clearly IS an hostel and NOT an hotel, but compared to some lower mid-range hotels (which are more expensive), this is a real option! You can see the rooms have been used, but it (in my case: single room) was clean and efficient. Not too small, especially the bathroom was by far better than what I experienced in the lower mid-range hotels. Very friendly staff, the lounge at the reception is quite cosy and the bar offers drinks to affordable prices. Best think is def. it's geographic situation: the Center within walking distance and still in a quite calm corner. For groupes: access by bus/coach is possible but not always very easy (as quite narrow streets). Positive surprise concerning the breakfast buffet. (for a hostel, not bad!) To be recommended for school classes.

We were a group of friends traveling through Europe and had an unexpected stopover in Köln. Since we were a large group of 10 persons, finding accommodation wasn't easier but with some luck we found this hostel. It is located in the center of the city with easy access to public transport. One should expect this to be a hotel but instead its more like a big hostel and partly hotel. Fairly easy check in and check out process despite the crowds. There is a bar at the reception where one could hang out and pass time. The sleep was decent, the rooms were decent and clean. We didn't order breakfast and decided out check out one of the bakeries nearby. Would go back if it was a for short span and just wanted to a place to crash.

It is centrally located. Price is just right for the amenities. Room is clean, size is okay, and I liked that the toilet and bath are separated. Check-in and check-out is a breeze. Definitely recommending this place.

We were on a business trip and we slept here. It is not the best hotel in Cologne but if you "only have to sleep somewhere" it is more than good. The staff is nice and helpful, but the students next to our room were loud.

We stayed at this hostel and had a relatively large room. The food was nice however sometimes it was slightly cold. At night it was always quiet. I would come here again if visiting Cologne for a short time.

We stayed in this hostel for 4 days while we were on a citytrip. The location is perfect, you can walk to all the things you want to see and all the bars and clubs are at walking distance too. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. We didnt make a reservation for a parkingplace but when we arrived we could use their garage anyway. A nice hostel for a city trip

Not a great start as we were told we have to pay 3,50€ for bedding. The bed itself was super uncomfortable; a bit like sleeping on a wooden plank. However there is a good locker for big backpacks and the room was spacious. Clean bathroom, nice shower, mirror with light. We didn't buy breakfast because it seemed a bit expensive. The hostel is quite out of town and we got very lost looking for the the cathedral. Directions from the hostel could have been better. Overall would probably not stay here again because of the bed but it was clean.

While the hostel itself is quite simple, They have various types of guest. The staff change the room (from mixed dorm to the girl) for me when he knows I traveled alone. Appreciated for that! The hostel is quite big but still, it offers clean, safe accommodations. En-suite toilet in the room. However, the location is absolutely amazing and not to noisy as I once thought..Ummm maybe it depends on the seasons and guest habitual. There's a lot of coffee places for coffee lovers around that area. Just a few walk 2 or 3 blocks I don't remember. Good place, Worth the money

I stayed here with a large group of students for 3 nights, and this is clearly a popular location for school groups. The rooms were clean with good bathrooms, the breakfast and evening meals were acceptable... there are always some in a large group whose 'discerning' palate declines anything they are not used to... and the reception staff helpful (particularly with supplying me with coffee). They also provided us with a large, secure room to store all our bags in prior to departure. It was hot-humid when we were there and all areas become a little stifling however, we minimised the time at the hotel-hostel and everyone just got on with the minor discomfort. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the Dom, possibly longer if you are in a large group. Walking in the opposite direction for a similar time brings you to the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Park... useful if you have a lot of young people who need to run off energy on an evening. In summary, you get what you pay for, and this was good value set against this criteria.

I led a school trip for 39 fifteen year old children in July 2017. The hotel allocated us rooms on floors 1 and 4 so consequently split our group up which was obviously disappointing. The hotel was full of groups with another English group present and the rest being German. We found the other groups a nightmare and very noisy. On the first night the Hostel had 1 night time security guard. After the noise on the first night there were three for the rest of our stay. I was delighted that the hostel did something pro-active about the noise as it was much quieter. The students I took hated the food. However, the staff all ate breakfast and evening meal and went back for seconds. Beef in gravy with spuds, chicken and pasta plus spag bol on another evening. I was delighted by the free hot drinks for staff and found the cappuccino to be very pleasing. One of my colleagues though noticed that in the evening on the joining street there were a number or prostitutes!!! The showers are outstanding!!! The rooms and mattresses are awful. You get what you pay for!!
