Pathpoint Cologne Backpacker Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 January 2013

I booked a 4 bed private room . This hostel is an excellent value for money. Its clean and its staff are very helpful and polite. Moreover they also spoke fluent english. It is walking distance from all attractions of Cologne. For Friends and family this was one of the best place and much better then any expensive place that you will end up paying same or twice the amounts for much lesser services.

Room Tip: If you are in groups the more the merrier.

Hostel was just a 5 minute walk from HBF which is great for people with heavy luggage.
Friendly staff service too. The breakfast provided is also not too shabby.
Good experience and highly recommended for people looking for affordable accommodation.

My wife and I stayed at pathpoint for 1 night while visiting Cologne with another couple. We all shared a 4 bed room, which had its own bathroom and shower. For what it was --- a few hours sleep, shower and security --- it was perfect. The beds were sturdy and clean. The bathroom was clean with hot water. Furthermore, all the attractions near the Cathedral were a quick little walk. All-in-all it was excellent for us. The rest of the weekend we stayed with a host, in case you were wondering. Also, for 4 Euro, the breakfast was easily worth it!

Stayed here two nights in June. Great location very near the train station, clean place with a decent bathroom, and very helpful staff who answered my questions and made good suggestions. I stayed in a four bed female dorm, and it was quiet, clean and comfortable.

I just stayed for one night in the hostel recently, but can definitely recommend it for a longer stay. The unisex dorms are clean with an ensuite bathroom, each bed comes with its own, big locker. They have a spacious common area and kitchen as well as a nice patio for smokers. The breakfast (4 euros) is an all-you-can-eat catreing for all different tastes.
And just a four minute walk from Central Station.

Since Cologne is more of a transit city, this hostel is ideal for anyone planning on spending a few days there. It's 5 minutes away from the main station, the Dom and the main shopping streets, and also very close to the Rhine. Another good aspect is the fact the it's situated in a cheap area (you have Penny Market, an Asian supermarket and loads of cheap shops) and the hostel has a large well equipped kitchen where you can cook.
I was in a girls only bedroom and it was very clean, with en suite bathroom. Everyone gets a large locker that can easily fit a suitcase. You can rent a towel from the reception, they'll charge you 1 euro for it. If you want to use the WiFi, you need to ask at the reception for a unique username and password which will expire after 10 hours (up to 3 days). They serve breakfast in the morning, but you don't get much for the 4 euros they charge for it.
Overall, it's a great place to stay at, I would definitely book it again.
