The location of the hostel is not quite in the city center - probably a 15min walk, but it is nice in that it is quiet all the time in the neighbourhood. Our tour guide told us it was located close to a famous bar that serves the best kölsch, however we didn't get around to going there.
The 4-people bedroom were good, not too spacious, but the bathrooms are good for a hostel.
Dinner and breakfast were good as well. We did not spend much time in the common area near the reception, but it seemed like a good place to sit.
Wifi only works in the reception, which isn't too convenient, but not uncommon for German hostels (they usually have limited access to wifi to prevent misuse).

Staff is friendly and helpfull (including some out-of-the-box tequests like printing not related tickets), rooms are really clean and nice for youth hostel type. Breakfast is very limited (not warm food at all) though.

Good modern hostel, located outside of Cologne city centre, but really only a short walk via the famous rail bridge, and only moments from the Koln-Deutz rail station which hosts both local and IC / ICE services. Tram stop one block to the west takes you to the edge of the city centre if you prefer.

A good night's sleep for us (nervous after reading other reviews and realising we were there at the end of the school year, aka school trip season), and happy with the food and drink at breakfast. Kids loved having bunk beds inside a cupboard-style enclosure... Good ensuite bathroom, clean, separate WC room.

All the shops you may need on Deutzer Freiheit, two blocks to the south

All said and done its a Youth Hostel - but definitely one of the better city ones.

Room Tip: Pot luck - its a youth hostel. En-suite family room was good.

This big hostel is conveniently located right opposite one of the train stations in Cologne. It is reasonably priced. Our room was simply furnished but comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was continental style and plenty of it. There is a good shop in the reception area selling drinks and snacks. This is great budget style accomodation, but not for someone who appreciates the luxuries in life. It is about a twenty minute walk across the Rhine to the old town and Cathedral. The staff were friendly and helpful. You will need to check whether towels are included in the cost of your stay.

Stayed: March 2017

Location is good, nearby to train station Messe, 15 min walk to city center through bridges. But noisy. Breakfast is excelent.
Room is fresh and clean with private bathroom
Bunk and pillow is comfortable, individual light, but is not individual charge points.

There are not any toiletries and hair dryer (necessary at least in women rooms)
