“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for carnival weekend. Good location, only 15-20 mins walk to old town across rail bridge. Hotels in Cologne are pretty expensive in comparison. Rooms are basic with bunk beds, so if location and cost are your main drivers I'd pick this.

I arrived late at night (11.30 pm). Could not see the hostel and was groping in the dark.
The hostel need to have a illuminating signage so that people coming from Koln-Deutz station can see it from a distance.

Had a quick check-in. The rooms are very basic and simple. The shower and toilet do not have soap or towels so do ask for it.
The breakfast is good considering its a hostel. The reception and kitchen staff were 'Very polite' which increases the comfort level.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the higher floors.

This hostel is more like a budget hotel to me. It is a very cold-looking building with a very sterile atmosphere. It is not social like hostels should be.
However the rooms were good (I had a double room on the 7th floor with views over the river and of the Cathedral), very clean, nice showers and comfortable beds.
The location is not bad, only a walk across the bridge takes you directly into the city.
Nothing wrong with this hostel, just nothing outstanding either. Was slightly expensive considering no free wi-fi (instead crappy communal pay as you go computers for internet) or great breakfasts.

Room Tip: If you don't like spoilt bratty 10-16 year old British school children, avoid in December, ha.

The DJH Deutz is great for travelers on a budget for a city trip to Cologne, as it is short walk of 15 min by the Hohenzollern Bridge to the cathedral or by the Deutz bridge to Heumarkt. For concerts or events in the Cologne Arena (Lanxessarena) the location is superb. The equipment is modern for a hostel, the breakfast delicious (only up to 9 clock). Overall, a clear recommendation.

I have stayed several times in the last year in the youth hostel in Cologne-Deutz. The property offers a very popular location close to city center, which can be easily reached on foot via the famous Hohenzollern Bridge. The rooms are mostly clean and adequate. Breakfast is included and ok for my taste. Unfortunately, the prices can vary dramatically based on the fair.

I stayed here for a competition. Given that this is a youth hostel, the facilities were quite good. It was very clean and facilities were not bad. Staff were accommodating and friendly too. The location is really good as well because it is just opposite the Koln Messe station, Deutzer Freheit, and just a 5-10 min walk away from Koln Hbf station. It is also just 15min away from Koln/Bonn airport. Although the selection of food is not very plentiful, but it was adequate and not too bad. However, service can be a little slow especially if there is a big group there.

Great location, well priced, clean, upscale youth hostel.
However, the night staff is minimal and is not that concerned with keeping order among the groups. You are at the mercy of other guests as to how loud they are. If you get a poorly behaved youth group staying there (as I did) it can cost you a night's sleep or two.
