The location is ok, but still not that close to the center - you need to take the subway. It is pretty safe to leave your belongings in the storeage room. The cleaner works hard to keep the place clean.
The room didn’t look like in the picture at all - in the picture it looks nice, in reality - not nice at all. There was really bad smell present in the room all the time, I think it was coming from the bathroom. Even after the room was cleaned, the smell stayed. The hotel didn’t correct my booking when I accidentally booked the same night twice instead of adding one more night, and charged double for the same night, although I wrote in the booking that I am prolonguing my stay, and they didn’t return the money - the hotel policies are not customer friendly. Any other hostel is for sure a better option - other hostels in Cologne are more customer friendly and offer a warm breakfast. I also didn’t encounter bad smell in other hostels.
Location and price. Friendly staff. Machine check-in! Wow! Well done!
Beds make a weird noise - pls lubricate them :) Pls ask guests not to smoke under the room windows ;) Remember to refill soap in the bathroom ;)
Location is good.
Room was very small and there was always voice from elevator.
Staff are very professional and nice. There's a quality kitchen and a free luggage room in spite of it being a budget hotel.
Not very clean. Lockers are really long and narrow, can't fit anything into them other than a laptop bag.
Very small bed, very small room, very small bath room
