Very very good. I can't say a bad thing about it. The staff was very helpful, the whole hostel was incredibly clean and all in all it felt more like I stayed in a good hotel rather than a hostel. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Cologne. 10/10.

The hostel is in great condition! I found the staff very friendly and helpful! The location is very handy for traveling to the main tourist sights and is very well placed near a subway station and a supermarket!

Staff were really friendly. They offered me and the other half a free upgrade to a private room. Room was very clean, showers were nice and hot. Just round the corner from the train station and the Dom cathedral. A little away from the main centre but only a 15-20 minute walk which is a nice walk anyway.

The hostel is really close to the cathedral or the 'Dom'! And to the main train station, which has loads of shops in. It's also really close to a nice shopping area, and some quite big museums. It had a big kitchen area so you could cook if you wanted too. It was really clean also which was nice. There were large lockers which were good for putting your backpacks in.

Good location, just a 10-12 minute walk to the main station and DOM Cathedral. U babahn less than 2 minutes and train station at Hansaring around the corner. Shops, cafe, bars all within very close proximity. Would recommend the bagel cafe a few doors up for breakfast.

This is not a really hostel, it is more like renting a small appartement in a house full of appartements.Therefore you are never disturped by other guests. It feels luxury and the furniture is beautiful. The location is fantastic (next to the UBahn, so you are in the centre withing 3 minutes or, if you like walking 20 minutes to the centre) and there are many small stores, supermarkets and restuarants within 5 minutes of walking. The staff gave us restaurant tips upon arrival, which was very useful. You could not hear the bar, which is on the ground floor, in our appartement

The best thing about it is it's location, very close to the main train station, and the tourist info centre is right on the corner. Just so convenient, love being able to find my accommodation without any hassles. The female staff member who was on duty when I arrived was friendly and chatty.
