The 2 stars here are for the location and the friendliness of the staff. We stayed in a 4 people room with private bathroom. The funny thing is there is no towel provided (€1 for each towel if needed). However, if you stay in a dormitory, you get a towel for free. The room was very small and not so...

Room : Decent Location : Near Cologne Hauptbahnhof Condition: OK, not top class I think the main advantage staying here is if you are making a pits stop at Cologne, then staying here becomes convenient

The only redeeming feature of this hostel is the convenient location, only 2 minutes from the main station and cathedral. Building works we're going on in our corridor, so the noise of power tools was really loud. Not only this, groups of people were frequently running up and down the corridors, squealing. Our room was cramped and dated, and there...

Central location, 24-hour check-in, wifi in every room, cozy common area, clean bathroom/shower, basically everything I can wish for in a Hostel. Definitely would go here again and recommend everyone to do so to!

It was okay. For sure the location is the best part of it. Could go anywhere in the city, if I knew how to get back to the main station, I could go back to the hostel. I found a pin in my bed after it was undone in my second day. I did not think it was dirty or...

We stayed one night in this hostel because it was weekend in summer and football match. All other places was overbooked. We stayed in 6 bedded girls dorm. One of our roommates was prostitute, other was drug addict - that shows reputation of facility. Mattraces were dirty, simply covered with bed sheets - my friend noticed old blood stains as...

I thought that this hostel was very convenient and provided what I considered good value for money. Very close to the train station, great rooms all with single beds so no bunk climbing, staff were friendly and helpful both times I visited, not expensive and I ended up with great room mates. I have been twice so couldn't be that...

Myself and 4 others stayed in the hostel. A six bed room for 4 people and then another guest, Male, stayed in another bed. One bed left free. We had booked a private room but were not too shocked to find another person in our six bed room. We didnt mind. Others might. At 65 euro for 2 nights we...
