Good value for money! Cheep for a big city like cologne. The room was very small but enough for sleeping. Luckily we had a chance to shower somewhere else becauce the bathroom was smelly but clean. when you stay there then go to engelbät for pub-dinner!!!!!

Small basic but clean room. I happened to be in a room right by the lift which was very nosiy all through the night so wouldn't be ideal for light sleeper. The bed was very basic, more of a bench with an extremly thin mattrass (could really be described as a thick mat). Location was good, close to restaurants, bars, cinema, shops and transportation. very friendly staff.

The hotel is a mix between a hostel and a hotel so there are quite a lot of young travellers and school groups. However, the price was really good and the hotel is in a good location to get a 5 minute tram to the city centre. The taxi from the station to the hotel was around 10 euros. Overall, if you are looking for a cheap place to stay with a decent breakfast then stay here.

the staff were nice in general, regardless of one person at the entrance, who was drunk for sure even though it was early in the morning.Guess this kind of person shouldnt be at the front door of a hotel... there wasnt a hairdryer in the room so we had to borrow it from the staff ... breakfast was good but we had to pick up our trays and glasses, which is unacceptable in a HOTEL!!!! Anyway, all in all, it was an acceptable stay!!!

The staff was extremely helpful and very courteous. The rooms were a little smaller than expected, but very clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The price was good for what we got.

It's a bit misleading the lower rate is for 8-bed dormtory. I was not expecting such a combination of hotel and hostel so I was really surprised in the front desk when they informed me I booked 8-bed dorm. Fortunately they still have vacancy for private room where you have two beds plus two more backup retractable bed. Room is simple but clean.

Hotel quite spartan but really clean. Quiet during the night, noisy in the morning. During breakfast we were surrounded by people from everywhere and that was nice.

Overall it is a decent place to stay on a budget. but the beds are uncomfortable since it is not a "real" mattress. Also, the walls are not soundproofed and you can hear people in the halls and next door.
