Being a backpacker hostel, we got what we had paid for. But the hostel did cater to us without any unacceptable fault. We stayed in a 4-bed room with ensuite bathroom. So basically we have all of the spacious room to ourselves. The room has a dinner table set with 4 chairs, which came in handy for our meal inside...

Everything was fine until my friend figured out she has bed-bugs in her room and the insects bit her every night. The staff assumed it often happens and do not seem to really care about this huge problem. As we know, diseases could appear after being bitten by those insects. Now we are trying to get reimbursed and from a...

This was a good place to stay, we were just passing through Cologne and this hostel provided what we needed. Clean showers, comfy beds, and a luggage room. There was a bar/lounge as well that we enjoyed relaxing in. It was not as lovely as other hostels I've been in and the wifi is only accessible in the lounge, but...

We had a great stay here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Christmas markets. The hostel is ideally located, just 5 minutes walk from the central station. It has a welcoming, modern bar area to the ground floor. We were 4 girls staying in a 4 bed room. It was spacious enough with each of us having hanging and cupboard...

I stayed for two nights. The location is great as it is a short walk to the train station and the cathedral. However, the room was smelly, it stank of cigarettes and stale feet. I got bitten all over and the shared showers were impractical (why build a shower with no shelf for your soap and area to dry yourself????)....

We booked private rooms for 2 in each room. The room was basic but quite modern and the bed was comfortable enough. The bar is very good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Very happy for the price paid.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in August during our Interrail trip. We thought the location of this hostel was very good as it was so close to the train station and the many interesting things to look at in Cologne. We also found that we were able to use the point of the cathedral as a...

Arrived on the 13th Sept at 8:30pm, have been travelling for 8 nights beforehand, had my booking reference ready. Turn up at the desk to be told that my payment had not gone through and my bed sold with none available that night or the next. I was told I had received an email, which I checked once I had...

We were travelling through and needed a bed for the night. The hostel was ideal as only a few mins walk from the station. Good and clean with the option of breakfast (at additional cost). It catered for our needs, but wouldn't choose to stay there for long...
