Liked: The food was nice and the service was friendly, especially the kitchen staff. The luggage room was a very nice asset as well.

Disliked: It said wifi on the site, but costs as well as was very limited. Rooms were incredibly hot in the rooms and hardly any ventilation in order to cool off. Also, they said towels were 1.50 and the lady at the front desk told us 2.50.

Liked: It's a nice and clean new hostel, that offers good value for money. The breakfast is quite nice for the price you pay. It's located nicely, it's about a 15 minute walk to the town center.

Disliked: Not much. If it would be in the town center itself it would be ideal, but being located a little bit further also has advantages (less crowdy, easy to reach by car)

Liked: Very Clean Rooms, Good powerful showers, location is easy to get to central Cologne (20 minute walk over the bridge or 2 stops on the U-bahn). Also Close to Messe Deutz S-bahn station. Car park is a bonus.

Disliked: It's a little impersonal - well suited to large groups, schools and youth groups, which seems to be the main clientele - I wouldn't reccomend it as a lone traveller as I can't imagine it being easy to meet others, specially as there's no 'Bar', just a seating area with no atmosphere.

Liked: Very clean. Free breakfast (really tasty and nice) definitely hit the spot. Evening dinners looked cheap and affordable. Small supermarket area with drinks and snacks also was nice. Bathrooms were also nice and spacious.

Disliked: Expensive Wi-Fi (1.50 euros per hour) kind of was unpleasant (especially if you are a remote worker like me). Understandable for the sheer size of the hostel (accomodates 600+ people), but you'd expect a better wi-fi service in this day and age.

Liked: The location is excellent. The overall impression is very good. Actually it is like staying in a regular hotel if you can accept that other people are staying in the same room as you.

Disliked: I didn´t like my finish room mate, who came in late the last night, farting and snooring all the night. He didn´t smell good, but all this has nothing to do with the hostel itself. Great value for money.

Liked: Good location. Easy walk to city centre, very close to train station. Room clean and had separate toilet and bath room. Good breakfast with nice warm rolls.

Disliked: On arrival were told that we needed to be a member of Youth Hostel Assoc. - no mention of this on the website and was not the case for anywhere else we had stayed. Luckily they eventually waived the fee. Asked about car parking for our hire car and were told that there were only 35 sites for 500 rooms, so no guarantee of getting a parking spot. Web site had said that there was lots of parking. Luckily we did get a park. This hostel seems to cater mainly for teenage school groups. We had a room in amongst school children who didnt sleep all night, We had asked to change our room when we arrived and saw all the noisy children and were told "remember what you were like when you were that age." Complained during the night but staff couldn't control the children either. No sleep. The next night there were more school children, who were much better behaved, luckliy.

Liked: It is clean and the staff is friendly and helpfull. The Hostel is located at the other side of the Rine and it is easy to walk to the city center. I also liked the breakfast with fresh baked bread.

Disliked: It is very big and therefore less cosy.
