“One of my favourite hostels.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Could not speak more highly of this hostel. Located within walking distance of most main attractions, countless cafes, restaurants, stores and main/bus station; beds are comfortable, and the dorms are beyond adequate in space and heating (although a little noisy with the windows open); fully-equipped kitchens with multiple counters and stove-tops and free wifi available throughout the entire facility.
Would definitely return if I ever found myself in Cologne again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors may not suffer as much from the traffic noise.

One of the best hostels I'e stayed at. The hostel was clean, centrally located (very close to the metro and the main train station), staff were helpful, good kitchen facilities, and the beds in the dorms were comfortable.
There isn't a bar but this means that the hostel is nice and quiet, and if you want to people, there are common areas.
Enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it.

Centrally located, clean and cosy, friendly and helpful staff, basic breakfast can be bought every morning. There is a fully equipped kitchen on the first floor which is clean and comfortable. I liked everything :)

I stayed here for 2 nights in end of Nov and to my surprise it was very satisfying. As we reached Cologne in the early morning, they were kind enough to let us check in early as there was vacancy (i doubt many hotels allow that). They have a very nice spacious complete kitchen for cooking. The rooms very clean and basic, nothing to complain as it is a backpacker's hostel. There is attached bathroom/toilet which is also very neat and clean. Location of this hostel is good, situated 4-5mins walk from the train station, very convenient, and just 2 mins walk to a small supermarket (Penny) across the street. The best thing of all is, they provide wi-fi which not many hotel does (could still do some research on where to travel around Cologne). No worries if you didn't pre-check on whats there, they have brochures/map/guides to visit the city. Thumbs up for Pathpoint Cologne!

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was great! Not the best hostel I ever stayed in but one of the better for sure!
The staff was really helpful and friendly, offered a great service. They don't have a bar but you can buy beer which you can drink in or outside with your new friends who are easy to make at this hostel. The rooms were pretty good! We stayed in a room not on the street side so I couldn't complain about any noises but I don't know how it is when you have a room on the other side.
Breakfast wasn't included but for a few Euro you got a really nice breakfast!
The hostel also has its own kitchen which provides anything you may need.
Overall everything is really clean! And the hostel is in a good location - right behind the trainstation and close to a subway station!

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the street side

Stayed here for two nights with a friend (8 bed female dorm). Staff were friendly enough (gave directions, let us keep our bags in a cupboard either side of checking I and out so we could explore the city more easily). Rooms were clean and comfortable enough, with toilet and shower room, and large lockers. Can't comment on breakfast, there was a penny markt less than 5 minutes away, where I bought breakfast for under €1 a day. Central location, on near enough the same street as the main train station.

Only issues were to do with a lack of air con in the room, and other guests, who arrived back at 4:30am, talking very loudly for half an hour. However this is hardly the hostels fault, and was only really to be expected on a Saturday night.

In short, I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cheap place to stay for a few nights, however if you aresstaying on a Saturday night and like early nights, seriously consider getting a smaller room.

I stayed there for a week. Situated right on the main road and extremely noisy all through the night. I had no blinds on my window either so the rooms were lite up from the street lights outside. Location was good right next to the station and the Dom. While I had the Internet and they told me codes lasted for 10hrs it always stopped after about 2, in the end I gave up using my Internet as it was annoying going throughg the same process all the time. If I'm ever back in Colonge I might come back but I will definitely be looking what other options are out there.
