Excellent Hostel! It was all perfect, very close to the centre. The wifi could be improved as you have to connect every hour, but it works. Everything excellent! Specially the location!

I found the atmosphere at the hostel a bit lacking. When I checked in, I barely got any information about the premises as a whole (e.g. kitchen, common area, patio, etc.) so it was difficult for me to find my way around. Also, I felt like I needed to tiptoe around the house it was so quiet when I was there. There were hardly any people hanging out or chatting and I felt a bit out of place. With such a great architecture of the place, I would have expected a lot more activities going on.

The location was fantastic. It was very close to the cathedral and the other tourist destinations. The only suggestion that I have is that it would be nice to have a hand soap dispenser in the bathroom.

Thank you very much for your great review. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As we have also received some requests by other guests regarding soap dispensers, we are now providing soap in all rooms. :-)

Me encanto, estuve solo una noche, pero aun así pude notar lo genial que era el sitio. En recepción me explicaron todo con claridad y mis compañeras de cuarto fueron amables... Seria genial hacer una actividad voluntaria para que nos conociéramos mejor :)

Thank you very much for your nice review! Breakfast is not included in our prices. You are right - on weekends it can be a bit more expensive (the prices are in general higher in Cologne during weekends). However, on the other hand we do offer really cheap prices too. We are really looking to welcome you here again. Best regards from Cologne! :-)
