Pros: Clean rooms, bathroom in the room. Power sockets near every bed.
Location: Hostel is near the central station and lot of places to eat nearby. Cathedral, christmas market, roman museum all are in walking distance.
It's a nice decent hostel. Hotel staff is good and the rooms were clean. They have big common area and for my room I had bathroom in the room. Bring 1 or 2 euro coins to use the locker inside the room (You will get the coins back after you are done using the locker).

Perfect for those on a budget! this has ro be the best value for money hostel/backpackers I have stayed in while on a 6 week jaunt around Germany. Clean, cheap, very tidy. Only a 2 minute walk to the main train station and 4 minutes from the Cologne Dom. Staff are knowledgeable, happy to be of service, they have travelled too, so understand your needs and wants.

Great location next to the hauptbahnhof and very short walk to shops and restaurants. The station is pretty much a shopping centre so you can grab stuff at any time and take back to the hostel. Internet was patchy at times, but okay.

Pros: Great staff, clean rooms, good environment, and fun meeting place!
Cons: A few guests were messy, and you have to deal with lots of snoring in shared rooms!!!
Location: Best location, 5 minute walk from central station!!!
It's probably the cleanest and best kept modern hostel in the world, 5 minutes from central station in Koln. Staff are friendly, and the breakfast if excellent value for money. The rooms are clean as are the bathrooms. Most guests are students and professionals, but you do get some weird people (eg. alcoholics, etc) sometimes, so be prepared, and keep an open mind. The staff are always willing to help and are wonderful people. Bring slippers, because the bathrooms do often get wet!!!
