When I first arrived I thought I was in the wrong place as it was far too grand to be a hostel. This continued through out my stay. Which says everything about the value and quality of this establishment.

Conveniently located close to the S Bahn and metro station, and in a walking distance from the cathedral. Area is silent. Rooms are freshly renovated, very clean.My single person room was equipped in electronic kettle and stuff to prepare breakfast. I very much recommend this pension in Cologne.
