Lovely little hostel Feb 03, 2013
The hostel is very central located. Its only a few step away from the main train station and the famous Koelner Dom. The hostel is on the opposite of Hilton hotel.

The room is spacious and contains 6 separate beds that allows you to have your private area with small reading light, electricity plugs.

The room is clean and the bed is okay enough to have good sleep on it.

Toilet is relatively clean. Bathroom with modern hot/cold shower.

Most of the guests in the hostel are young people, which provides a young atmosphere. We gather together at night, drinking beer, chatting with each other about their travels.

In the morning, you can have breakfast at the hostel for a cheap price and you can cook your own meal in public kitchen.

I enjoyed my stay here at the hostel. But one downside is that they don't have elevator so it may be tiring to carry too much luggage to the 3rd floor for example.

Old Reputation But Great Stay Dec 12, 2011
My trip to Cologne was an impulsive one but unknowingly, I stayed there for five days because it's a wonderful base to explore other cities. This hostel is around 5 minutes away from the station & thus, its name. By now, this hostel is probably not as famous as its heyday because it's the earliest hostel in Cologne & that it's been featured in my Lonely Planet guide that's close to two decades. The front office staff even joked to me that perhaps, it should buy my Lonely Planet guide to put it in the archive. From the outset especially in the evening, it's a rather intimidating place because of its shabby location (it always does close to the train station) & that there's no grand entrance as such but simply a little opening where u would always see backpackers congregating at the entrance smoking & eyeing u in a hostile manner. Never mind, the moment u walked in, there's front office on the right hand side & living room with desktops on the left-hand side. There's also a little stairwell in the centre heading to a little loft hang-out joint in between floors & the rest r all rooms. At the moment, the place is undergoing an EXTENSIVE renovation. I was lucky enough to stay at the old joints & the new joints & boy, they r like chalk & cheese. Whilst the old joint is akin to a budget backpacker with its distinctive musty smell of yesteryears, the new joint is all clean line, chic & natural warm colour materials to complement the crisp linen on the bed etc. For what u pay for a single room here, u may just as well take one room all for yourself. It's an unbeatable value. In winter though, u can have a large room all for yourself anyway UNLESS it's the day of the Carnival which falls on the 11th November, which would make it impossible for u to sleep or to go anywhere at Cologne, when everyone is all dressed up in silly outfits & drink to their stupor everywhere INCLUDING the train station. What an eye-opener indeed! Recommended stay indeed.

Decent Hostel, close to everything. Sep 09, 2010
This place was pretty good, great for the price. Internet was free, first come first serve, which was really nice. Quick walk from the train station and very close to the major attractions in Cologne. I would def stay here again.
