The kitchen was clean and fairly equipped! Me and my new friends were saying things like this hostel is nearly a hotel for young people. It could be pricy for some people but is definitely worth it. Also has a big supermarket on the same building, you just have to go down by elevator and grab some thing you need every morning. The location is amazing, 15 mins to the rudolf plaza and 6-8mins to the cathedral. I was in the early morning messe in the cathedral, and some times i could see the whole cathedral with no one around and that i will remember as a life time experience. Love koln. Such a cheerful city.

This hostel was probably the best of our entire trip. It was a perfect location right in the centre of the town. It is situated above a supermarket and it has a very nice kitchen which was perfect for cooking in. The hostel was very clean with lovely rooms. The staff were perfect and very helpful!

Very clean and nice main building however it is unfortunate that there is no atmosphere so the space goes in used. I feel the lower part of the church hall could be better used with comfy chill out areas as opposed to rows of tables. Looks nice though

That was my first experiense staying at hostel and I think that I am the lucky one being at Pathpoint Cologne. There you can find everything you need if you really travel with a bag on your back and do not think about luxury)) The location is very central, 2 min to the DB-station, 3 min to the cathedral. Cleanliness is not even good, but perfect! Linen, towels, bathroom itself - all was at the highest level. At the reception you can get the city map and answers to all the questions you have or will have)

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

Great location, just round the corner from both the main train station and Cathedral. Rooms were really clean and no bunk-beds which is a bonus! Plenty of bathrooms, all kept clean and with good facilities. The staff were very helpful.

Nice area even though it is a little further out, the main street it is on is filled with resturants and shops. The staff were super friendly and helpful - good clean sheets and facilities like kitchen/common room. Midday checkout great for sleep in.
