A&O hostel surprised me on Christmas ! I left this morning and have been wanting to write a review fot it :) It's my first to Germany, a friend lives in Colonge invited me for Christams, when I was browsing accomdation on booking.com,I found a deal offered by A&O, 71% off for the 2 days when I stayed. I firstly picked it because the cheap price, then I found positive reviews and high scores. It's very convenient, from the Colonge Bonn Airport, takes U-bahn(local metro) to The Dom(Koln hbf) station, I arrived at night with a big luggae,so I chosed to hire a taxi, it cost me 8.90 EUR, maybe a little bit more than 5 minutes ride. If you travel with small baggae, you can always take train to Neumarkt station, less than 10 minutes walk to the hotel.There's also Tram station near by. Shopping center, dinners,cafe,pubs...all you could think are on your fingertips and it's very quiet during night time. I highly recommended to you. Tonight, I am staying in another place close to the central station(hbf station), but it's very noisy and small, just 2 stops away from Neumarkt if i didn't make wrong, I think A&O is definate way better for rest after a long day. Next time, I will choose A&O again.
Tips for future guests:
1. if you want to drink hot water, 10 EUR deposit , borrow one from the front desk
2. a 7 EUR cost will apply if you wish a late check out at 2pm
I have a twin room with private bathroom. Very nice, but somehow the mattress is a bit uncomfortable.I hope in the future, the hotel management team can make some improvements. The sponge base needs more to support human weights and rest the bones.
