Jugendherberge Koln-Deutz
Reviewed 7 April 2015

Struggling to understand some of the bad reviews on here: have stayed here many times over the last few years and it's always been excellent. Rooms are clean and functional (some even have TV), and the showers are hot and powerful. The reception area is spacious if a little echo-ey, and there's a downstairs cellar bar/games area as well as upstairs TV room. Breakfast is well laid out with plenty of choice (many 2-3 star hotels do a lot worse!), and there's a good little shop at reception: staff are friendly and helpful.

Location is fantastic: just a couple of minutes from Cologne's second main rail station and a well-appointed shopping street, and around 10-15 minutes walk across the Rhine bridge to the old town.

The only down side: a little pricey, and one of the lifts wasn't working when we were there which meant longer waiting times

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for one on the higher floors (6-7) as these aren't generally given...

I booked to go to Cologne over Karnival weekend with a group of friends. Lots of accommodation doubled their prices this weekend and this hostel was significantly cheaper. I booked three 4-bed rooms, which were clean with ensuite bathrooms each. The foyer was clean and modern, serving drinks and snacks. The location is great, with a 20 min walk across the rail bridge to the centre, with fantastic view across the river to the Dom. If you stay in the centre you would probably never see this view. Deutz station is right across the road. I'd happily stay here again next time I'm in Cologne.

Jugendherberge Köln-Deutz is in a very good location - very close to the city centre and the main stations. Just cross the beautiful bridge full of love locks and you are in front of the stunning Dom.
Very clean, staff was friendly. Even breakfast buffet surpassed the expectations.
The only thing which let us down was the wi-fi. As you had to purchase it and it worked only at the reception area. Otherwise all was good!

Couldn't ask for more from aa youth hostel so near to the town centre!
I have to say the breakfast was poor. But overall a very good stay.
Excellent for 18-24 year olds travelling the continent.
I would highly recommend the christmas markets in Cologne, magical memories!

The Jugendherberge Köln-Deutz is situated on the other side of the river Rhein. But it's only 1 km walkway to stay near the Dom and the Central Station. Also the Messe is very near.
The Jugendherberge has 2-bed till 8-bedrooms all ensuite. It is very clean, sheets are provided and the breakfastbuffet is OK.
It's a quite place to sleep.
