Important Information

Prepayment: Property will charge 100 % of the first night at any time after the booking has been made to secure your reservation. If your credit card is not valid, property might cancel your reservation.

This property has a 48 hours cancellation policy. Cancellations until 12pm (CET) noon 2 day before your arrival date are free of charge. Failure to cancel within this time or a no show will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay.

'Dear Guest, due to the latest constitution of Colognes City Council we have to charge from 01.12.2014 onward all guests who cannot prove that the stay is due to vocational or business reason a supplement of 5 % as City tax! We feel really sorry but there's no option for us to avoid these extra charges from the Cologne City Council.

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.

Liked: Not much

Disliked: This hostel is one of these new hostels that has removed the kitchen In favour of an overpriced bar. Reception staff were mostly rude and unfriendly apart from a woman (possibly the owner). I asked for some hot water from the bar and was told I should be charged (?!) And then received some rude jokes about Asian people. They kept putting me in the wrong bed and then my keycard failed to work. All in all an overpriced headache

Liked: Very welcoming, cosy

Disliked: Credit card was charged for the first night prior to my arrival without even ascertaining if I had arrived. I would have preferred to pay on the spot in Euros so as to avoid the surcharge imposed by my bank. No wifi in the rooms. Also, although clean, the shower-room could get flooded without being able to drain off.

Liked: Great location located right near the train station. The people on the desk were always helpful, especially the chick that did the night shift. Pretty clean, I liked that there were no bunk beds. Free padlocks for lockers with deposit. Easy laundry facilities.

Disliked: Whole bathroom area smelt like a urinal because of the proximity between the showers and the urinal (and the female type toilet as well). Place was full of creepy old men rather than the young backpacker crowd so don't go here if you want good atmosphere or to make friends as a solo traveller. Wifi only worked in the lobby.
