“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Geat Location (close to everything) and people. The front desk was super helpful and kind.

Clean and good atmophere. Rooms are large in a 6 dorm!

Just missing a bar! As you can't really drink there! But they were easy on us!

This is the best hostel i have ever stayed in. The cleanest and the nicest by far. 24/7 security that actual care and are pleasant. Rooms are modern, the bunks are nice with no stains or anything bad to mention. a very nice common room and patio with plenty of seating and tables, also a tv and or music on 24/7 for night owls. Medium sized lockers in the rooms. The rooms also boast very nice bathrooms of a good size. They have a nice elevator. Everyone i met in this hostel was EXTREMELY nice and came together in an instant to be friends and help each other out. They have a very very nice kitchen with plenty of seating, stoves, sink, dishes, fridges etc. Also worth mentioning the rooms are very quiet. It is so close to downtown its in it, and is very very close to The Dom and a host of bars and restaurants ( i stumbled back numerous times!) and there is a supermarket that sells anything and everything you need on the first floor. I honestly don't know what wrong i can say about this place, I had a great stay here. LET IT BE KNOWN!! the entrance to this hostel is not on the street of the address, it is around the corner next to the market entrance, its just a small door.

The hostel was very clean and a great location! Easy walking distance to the center of town and a grocery store was downstairs in the same building which was very convenient for grabbing breakfast on the go or cheap dinners! It definitely isn't a party hostel but it was definitely a nice place to stay!

A clean, comfortable and friendly hostel in the heart of Cologne, and within walking distance to all the major attractions. I can't actually fault the place on anything, it's a slick operation. I enjoyed it so much, that I booked extra nights. Will definitely visit again. The only constructive comment would be the length of the wifi codes, way too long!

We were a group of 6 people and we only staid in the hostel for one night but we had a great time. The staff was very flexible. We could finalize the exact number of people coming with us one evening before our arrival and we also had the choice between one room for 6 people or 2 rooms for 4 people each. Everything was super clean and new. We had a bathroom en-suit with shower, toilet and sink. Wifi is available for free. Also the shared bathroom was super clean! It has a nice lobby where you can hang out and play the piano or smoke on the balcony. The hostel is situated right next to the tram stop Heumark. You just hop in and it takes you anywhere.

Room Tip: If you come by car you can park in the garage attached to the hostel, then you pay 10 instead of 15...

Even though this is a hostel, it felt more like a hotel. I was a bit apprehensive about staying in a hostel as an almost 50 year old but the decision to stay here was a good one. Facilities are like new and we had booked our own room with ensuite. There are no frills, you get a towel and that is it, no soap, shampoos or a bathmat, but for the price no problem.

There are good kitchen facilities if you want them and the supermarket is right at your doorstep. It was great to be able to do your laundry as well and our bathroom had a great towel rail which helped dry the clothes that I didn't want to put in the dryer.

There is a train station close by and the main central station is a leisurely walk.

The lounge area that we didn't use has nice comfortable couches, tv and a small grand piano.

Our room was nice and sunny with a good sized window and view out to the street.

Would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed here twice, first time our room had normal beds big sunny window facing the street. Secon...
