First, this is one of the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed after Japan. Second, it's only 1-min walk to Penny groceries. Third, staffs are very friendly. Fourth, price is much affordable compared to others Fifth, I didn't realize they upgraded me from 8 bed dorm to 4 until a roommate told me. Danke sehr! :) (-) No wifi in rooms...

The Pathpoint hostel (A member of both Deutsche Jugendherbergen and Hostelling International) lies very close to the centre of Cologne and less than five minutes walk from the main railway station, making it an excellent choice for those arriving or breaking a longer journey by train. With excellent connections from the station to virtually all destinations in Nordrein Westfalia and...

This is the first time I read such a detailed Review about our hostel. :-) Thank you very much for this. The overstay charge isn't to make money. We want to get the rooms ready as quick as possible in order to check-in guests as early as possible. We don't expect guests to be at the reception at sharp 11....

Pathpoint Cologne is very close to the main train station and the city centre. The riverfront is just a 15 minutes walk or a 5 minutes run. I liked that I had to carry my own sheets from the downstairs for my bed, so it was clear that the sheets were clean. The bed in my dorm was very comfortable...

Public transport not necessary when you stay here as it's within a 5 minute walking distance of Cologne town centre. Stayed here around Christmastime and the winter markets were simply stunning. The hostel itself is clean and comfortable with ensuite rooms and a pub crawl available from downstairs. A large common area downstairs also makes this a very good place...

You arrive and then you get sheets and have to make your own bed. I have traveled all over the world and only in Germany and Switzerland do you need to make your own bed in a hostel.

Thank you very much for your review. - Bed sheets: As you said this is quite common in Germany. We try to keep our room prices as low as possible. However, you may know that the cost of labour is by far higher than for example in the east. Therefore, you can't really compare the situation here to other places...

Rooms were clean, staff was really friendly and helpful. While the breakfast wasn't as complete as in other DE youth hostels, the price was reasonable and the food was good.

The main essentials are great. The rooms are clean and comfy, as well are the bathrooms. They have the best kitchen I've had in a hostel. The atmosphere isn't very fun, it's pretty much just a place to sleep rather than hang out with people. The wifi is a hassle, it only worked on the main floor so I had...

It is a clean hostel, I liked this the most, then it is well located ( in few minutes you can get anywhere in the center), as a downside I will mention that the wifi password provided is available only 10 hours which is quite uncomfortable but I personally had signal in the room. The staff was also friendly.
