We came to stay here for a long weekend in Cologne over December, to go to the Christmas Markets and some music concerts. It was perfect. I loved the quirky room decor, and really appreciated the small social common area with the honesty bar. The only word of advice I'd give is to definitely not try and drive here -...

Die Wohngemeinschaft is the best hostel I have ever slept in so far! It has literally everything you need during a trip or short holidays. The whole place is clean and adjusted to visitor’s needs. Every room is furnished in a different, impressive way. You’ve got a lot of privacy even in a room for 8 people. Beds are huge,...

Great location, good security, love the room (with a view-our room that is), immaculate cleaniness, great designs of rooms, free coffee and tea, lovely lounge, great shower & toilet, friendly and helpful reception staff and last but not least, great price for a hostel like this. Perfect place to be in Cologne. Highly recommended!

Good security, friendly reception. Comfortable rooms and clean toilet. Free tea, coffee and board games in the common area too. Last but not least, wonderful interior design where each room has its own theme. Highly recommended for single, group, or couples. Worth the money!

Double beds, woohoo! A shelf, light and power outlet with each bed. Every bed was allocated a free key locker, although I couldn't reach mine so it was pointless. I stayed in the 8 bed dorm room and there wasn't much space to put my luggage. My friend stayed in the 6 bed dorm and it was like double the...

My mum and i wanted a cheap break and the Cologne markets at Christmas seemed a good choice. Searched about but all hotels were double/triple the cost, so we thought why not! Having never stayed at a hostel we were a little concerned but it would only be for a few days. We need not worry! Arrived very late (after...

We had an amazing 2 night stay here. Great location away from the touristy center but easy to walk to the river in under 15 minutes. The rooms are very unique with a backstory to each one, it's a fun place to stay. What makes it 5* are the friendly staff, all smiles and full of useful info regardless of...

We only stayed for one night at this hostel, but had a very pleasant stay. The staff at the front desk was very helpful in accommodating our luggage while we waited to check in and offered excellent tips on places to eat and activities to pass the time. The rooms are very clean and each are styled individually with a...

Absolutely charming, comfortable and modern hostel in a very nice area, close to Belgian Quarter, easy access to trams & metro. The design of the dormitories is perfect - it guarantees you privacy and aesthetic pleasure :) All necessary conveniences are included, the place is safe, the breakfast is full. Downstairs there is a cafe&bar, which suggests diverse cultural programme....

Helpful and friendly staff. The location is perfect - easy to get there even in the middle of the night. Very good breakfast! Towels provided, clean bathrooms. Large and comfy beds with curtains for extra privacy. I would definitely come back!
