Great stay
Overall, great hostel. I would definitely stay there again. The only downside is that the rooms were very warm and we couldn't open the windows all the way. Plus, it's on a busy street and it was pretty loud until about 3am. Other than that, we loved it! Clean rooms, clean showers, clean toilets, friendly staff

The room was great and the staff is very nice. Too bad it doesn't have an ensuite bathroom. Shared bathroom was not clean and the shower was clogged.

Spectacular hostel experience with messy check-in
I have never slept on a hostel bed as wide as the one here! Every single room in this hostel is themed, and my 6-bed dorm was concert backstage, which was pretty interesting. However, I was shocked at what may be an European king sized bed! Sleep was of course very well here. Housing the super wide bed is an impressively tall and wide cubicle, so it feels like a mini room despite being in a dorm room. The room itself is very clean, and so is everywhere else in the hostel like the shower. My only complaint was that late check-in (past 11 PM) was a mess, because I had to squeeze through the crowd with my luggage to get a bartender's attention at the hostel bar and was then led to the wrong bed, leading to an awkward encounter with the occupant. However, this is a small hassle compared to the wonderful overall experience of the hostel! Being close to Rudolfplatz station, this hostel makes a comfortable, convenient base to explore Cologne and further afield!

The hostel is very good. The only problem in Germany that there are no kitchens in hostels.

Creative and fun
My friends and I enjoyed ourselves at the hostel. Checking was easy and the hostess was very nice. The rooms were really cool and clean. We were mostly worried about the community bathrooms and shower but they were very clean and nice. We decided to check out the bar downstairs and met lots of English speakers because they have you put on flag stickers of the language(s) you speak. Drinks were pretty well priced especially for the specials. In the morning we ordered the breakfast which was a good vegan breakfast. One of my favorite features of the hostel is that the floors lock so you need a key for the elevator. It made us feel safe especially with the bar on the bottom floor. I’d highly suggest this hostel to anyone but especially first time hostel goers. It’s an nice easy transition from hotel to hostel.

Great Hostel!
Great couple nights at this hostel. The location is great and the place is perfect for evenings when it’s not blazing out outside, lol. Like many places, no A/C and my roommates kept the fan off 😅. But the service is fantastic, the bar is awesome, and the location is perfect.
