Important Information

INDIVIDUAL BOOKINGS: "Please note that we charge your credit card one day prior to arrival. This is not for our benefit, but it enables us to contact you in order to find an alternative solution if the credit card payment fails, instead of cancelling your booking because of a declined credit card payment." PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICY FOR GROUPS: - The invoice needs to be paid by bank transfer or credit card (only visa or mastercard) at least one week prior to arrival - A delayed or not completed payment releases the Hostel from the said booking. However this does NOT release the guest from the booking, in particular the responsibility to pay the invoice. - A refund (minus a cancellation fee) is then only possible if and when the beds/rooms are sold further to a third party. - Up to two months prior to arrival all cancellations are free of charge. - Up to two weeks prior to arrival 10 % of your booking can be cancelled free of charge. - For further or later cancellations we have to charge the full accommodation rate. - Cancellations are only accepted by email, fax or letter.

Liked: 5 min away from Köln HBF

Disliked: The locker is outside the room(according to their word, its for the safety reason), its not so convenient after all. The room smells really bad, and the hallway smells awful. the toilet is really dirty in our floor. I am really glad that i only stay for 1 night.

City break

23 November 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: There are no bunk beds, each bed has a bedside light and there are plenty of plug sockets. The bathrooms were always clean, and the wifi signal was good. If you wanted to use the luggage storage, it was downstairs in the basement, so you need a swipe card to access the area, and then there are large lockers and you can use your own padlock. So it felt very secure, and convenient since the hostel is so close to the train station.

Disliked: There didn't seem to be many showers on the floor I was on, but they never seemed to be busy, so it didn't seem to be an issue.

Liked: The bed is separated for each person. It's not a bunk bed so it's a lot better to sleep. The room is quite big. The lift is kind of complicated but it wasnt a big problem. Location is good; it takes only 5 mins to walk to the main station or the dom.

Disliked: Sitan left no negative feedback.

18 August 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: - Very close to the train station and cathedral - Spacious rooms, and the beds are NOT bunk beds!

Disliked: - It felt as if you had to navigate a maze to get to your room. - It was difficult to sleep as it was too hot in the room. Being next to the noisy street didn't particularly help. - No internet in the room. - The urinal in one of the men's toilets in our floor had no water, and so smelled very foul.
