We stayed one night in this hostel because it was weekend in summer and football match. All other places was overbooked. We stayed in 6 bedded girls dorm. One of our roommates was prostitute, other was drug addict - that shows reputation of facility. Mattraces were dirty, simply covered with bed sheets - my friend noticed old blood stains as...

I thought that this hostel was very convenient and provided what I considered good value for money. Very close to the train station, great rooms all with single beds so no bunk climbing, staff were friendly and helpful both times I visited, not expensive and I ended up with great room mates. I have been twice so couldn't be that...

Myself and 4 others stayed in the hostel. A six bed room for 4 people and then another guest, Male, stayed in another bed. One bed left free. We had booked a private room but were not too shocked to find another person in our six bed room. We didnt mind. Others might. At 65 euro for 2 nights we...

While sleeping at night we were kept awaken by other guests who returned from their night out in town. We could hear them talking, their...

Being a backpacker hostel, we got what we had paid for. But the hostel did cater to us without any unacceptable fault. We stayed in a 4-bed room with ensuite bathroom. So basically we have all of the spacious room to ourselves. The room has a dinner table set with 4 chairs, which came in handy for our meal inside...

Everything was fine until my friend figured out she has bed-bugs in her room and the insects bit her every night. The staff assumed it often happens and do not seem to really care about this huge problem. As we know, diseases could appear after being bitten by those insects. Now we are trying to get reimbursed and from a...

This was a good place to stay, we were just passing through Cologne and this hostel provided what we needed. Clean showers, comfy beds, and a luggage room. There was a bar/lounge as well that we enjoyed relaxing in. It was not as lovely as other hostels I've been in and the wifi is only accessible in the lounge, but...

We had a great stay here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Christmas markets. The hostel is ideally located, just 5 minutes walk from the central station. It has a welcoming, modern bar area to the ground floor. We were 4 girls staying in a 4 bed room. It was spacious enough with each of us having hanging and cupboard...
