This is a great small hostel. Definitely not for partiers but the perfect place to chill. Close to a metro station into the centre, well stocked kitchen, big spacious dorms, comfortable beds. The man at reception is great, he gave us fantastic information about what to do and how to get about in cologne. My friend and I had a...

The Hostel is a very good one but may not suit everybody. For instance, the owner Tilo is not there between 1pm-5pm and this can obviously be an issue when booking in between these times. It isn't an issue once you're there because you have your own key to come and go as you please. There is a laptop and...

I liked this hostel because I saw how the owner cleaned everyday the hostel, you have breakfast, is in a nice neighborhood, just is hard to arrive because is confusing the address but when you are there everything is easy.

The hostel had a very home like feel to it. It is not a place to meet people, but if traveling in a group the rooms and kitchen area provide the perfect place to chill. The location is not very central but there is a u-Bhan very close by (which is very efficient). With free breakfast, cooking facilities (a must...

The hostel is located very far away from town, and will cost you quite a bit to reach by u-bahn if you do it frequently. The hostel is clean, but the cleaning is done by the owner whilst guests are still in the room. It is not a great place to meet people, despite having quite a cool living room....

Big, spacious rooms, very comfy bed, next to metro (fast tram), quiet place. Helpful owner, the only minus is opening hours - reception is not working 24/7 - but if you plan well that should not be a problem ? Clean and comfy, not to forget that its cheap, what else you want ? Breakfast ? yes they have simple...

The hostel is clean, tidy and conveniently located next to the U-bahn (very short ride to the city centre). However the atmosphere is a bit cold and the owner made us feel uncomfortable. I'm sure he's a good man and he's travelled a lot, but he's been quite rude to us from the moment we arrived and he's got a...

We stayed here for one night. Located a few U-Bahn stops out of the centre, on a busy road. The owner seemed very friendly, and when we arrived he gave us a map and showed us what there was to see and how to get around etc. The hostel had a very traditional guesthouse feel, it's essentially just a large...
