Great check in process. Someone always manning the desks. Lobby and breakfast area really clean and tidy. Only downside was the beds, some were springy and the pillows in much need of an upgrade.

Need more option
The stay was okay, but the room smelled weird. I was the only female in the room and there were a bunch of old men. I picked the top bunk and stayed there, but one of the men kept peeking onto my bed. I tried to book another night, but they wouldn't let me pay the difference to get a female only room. Honestly, there needs to be more rooms or an option on here for female only rooms because I'm a little scared if some guy thinks it's okay to watch me as I sleep.

Great value for families
We travelled with our 2 sons(13 &10).The receptionist was friendly on arrival and the room very spacious. We were given bedding to make up the children’s bunk beds, which took 2 mins, but ours was already done. The location is very close to station and cathedral so perfect for sightseeing and yes there is train noise but hardly any if you close the windows and you are in the centre of a city after all. For what we paid this was clean, comfortable, spacious and great value for money and I would stay there again.

The bathroom smelled like a public restroom. Hairs on pillowcases. There were dead bugs lining the hallway to the rooms. The roof area that you could see out side the windows on the way to the room had old dirty socks on it. Cigarette butts everywhere. Super loud all night from kids hanging out at the park across the street. And since the room was hot, we had to sleep with the windows open. Cigarette smoke and noise came through our 2nd floor window all night. No elevator so we had to carry all of our luggage up the stairs.

Excellent Location
We arrived quite early on 22/01 and the front desk staff was just amazing! He saw that we have heavy luggages and helped us to check one of the rooms on the first floor so we won't have to lug it all the way up. He managed to secure us one of the rooms on the same level as the reception and it was so much appreciated. The room is just a basic private room with private bath and just warm and toasty during the cold night. Just note though that if you have big luggage, then you will have to carry it several steps up. Otherwise, this is a wonderful hostel near to the HBF with wonderful staff.

Good find.
I have stayed here before and was anxious to go again. Great hotel for the price with a good breakfast and short walk to train station.

Basic hotel close to cathedral & museums.
A basic hotel, you get what you pay for! We were a family of 4 staying for 3 nights. Breakfast was typical of such hotels, food was fresh and tables etc clean. The room was clean with freshly pressed linen (had to make up beds ourselves). The kids had bunk beds and we had two singles pushed together. Negetives: we didn't master the shower temperature in all the time we were there (but it was clean, positives: friendly multilingual staff, hotel within easy walking distance of cathedral & museums. Area seems safe overall but of the major cities we've visited as a family, I'd say we were most on our guard in Cologne.
