Liked: There is a really cool very large bar and bistro with a great deck on the main floor as well as a coffee bar and a disco in the basement

Disliked: when I checked in there was no screen on the window in the dorm and though there was nobody but myself staying there it was wide open and because of that my bed was full of little flys. Also the girl at the front desk was quite rude, when I asked her to point out a couple of good night spots to go to she made it seem like it was the biggest chore in the world. Also there is absolutley nothing to do near the hostel and have to get on the subway for a few stops before you find anything. I won't be going back

Liked: Very clean, very good breakfast. Easy to get to by Ubahn.

Disliked: Difficult to find at first. Instructions sounded like it would be easy but were incomplete. Especially difficult to find at night (it is hidden from view); surrounding area is very dark at night. Also, while easy to get to by Ubahn, it is a few stops away from center so not the type of place you can go back to easily during the day.

Liked: Breakfast

Disliked: The environment was terrible. It feels like your at a summer camp for badly behaving children. It was full of school kids, old people, and families. On the web site it says mixed rooms, web really it's male and female rooms, which for a couple sucks. Reception was not helpful in recommending where to go.

Liked: It was a real nice place to stay for the 5 nights we spent in Köln - the rooms were great and the staff and other guests were very friendly.

Disliked: It would of been nice to have a big sign or something on the road/cycle path to point people clearly to the hostel as it is a little off the road - we got lost! :) Although you can't complain at a free breakfast the drinks could do with looking at... the orange juice is essentially water with orange colouring and the chocolate milk isn't the greatest - other than that, no complaints and very satisfied!
