Everything was fine: the stuff is friendly, the bed is comfortable, the room is spacious, the toilets are clean. Didn't try breakfest, so I can't say anything about it, but it's available from 6.00 and it's for advantage over the most hotels and hostels.
It was a bit noisy in the room because of traffic outside.
It was all very well organized. The people at the front desk were very helpful.
That the wifi was only in the lower area.
Spacious Efficient Location 24 hour bar Wifi
Great place to stay on a budget close to the hbf station so easy to find and to get awaybfrom early morning was great for me on a ground hopping holiday
The location is great, the beds were comfortable
Bad design, shared bathrooms were dirty
very clean friendly staff very good location, close to station and central area
Good location, very close to the train and bus stations, just 5 minutes by walking. The guest kitchen is nice.
The wifi is not available in the rooms, people are crowded in the lounge
1. Good Location! 2. Nice staff :)
the room is very big and clean very near the station
wifi only in the public area, not in the room
Great location close to the station and the city center. Basic hostel, but everything is ok and it's cheap.
Toilets could be cleaner (they were passable)
value for your money.
the room is too small. some teenager make noise at late night.
A very clean hostel, with helpful staff. The location is excellent- only 4-5 mins on foot from the Central station and the Cathedral. Clean bathrooms, sink in every room.
I had a room looking to the street. A lot of the hostel's customers gathered together outside and were speaking loudly, besides playing some music. I understand that there are some young people who want to party, but please do not do it in front of the hostel!
Top location Very clean The kitchen area
Waiting for the loos to free up
Excellent location, close to the Dom, the central train station and restaurants and supermarkets. Staff were friendly and helpful. Kitchen was well equipped.
There was no wifi in the rooms, only in the common areas, but these were spacious and plentiful. Bathroom in our room had a slightly odd configuration - the shower head pointed directly at the shower curtain, so the bathroom floor was prone to getting very wet.
The location is really good and for a hostel of that size it was super quiet. Very clean and it is very good to have shelves and sometimes big tables per bed.
It is quite warm during the summer and I had big issues trying to charge my phone because I believe there's low voltage.
nothing much but just a hostel
This hotel took the first night's rent from my debit card without notifying me causing me to incur huge overseas transaction costs from my bank. When the booking is made, you enter your card details to act as a guarantee to show up. You pay cash when you arrive (as I specified), and if you don't, you get the first night's rent charged to your card. The day before I arrived, however, they took money from my account. I am not happy.
A guy from the staff (not sure of his name) helped me with my gigantic suitcase up the stairs
The elevator doesn't attend the ground floor. The sheets and the towels had a peculiar (unpleasant) smell.
Good location and super price.
I did not know how to get warm water from the shared bathroom.
Excellent location, close to train, cathedral and river.
Climbing stairs with luggage.
I saw rat.... in first floor
I like kitchen. Location. Clean bed and linen.
They made some stupid mistake from payment. Travelers must check credit card's accommodation fee.
Very friendly staff, nice clean, hot showers.
The location was perfect: next to Cologne Cathedral and the train and a short walk to all the sights we wanted to see. The staff were friendly and helpful. Hot shower.
You could see people cleaning, but if you look closely, the hostel was not very clean at all. The bed was a foam slab. Lockers outside room. WiFi not in room and poor connection elsewhere.
