        Relatively OK”

        Location is good. The staff speak English. Cleanlinss is a bit questionable. The electric sockets and some parts of the room were dusty. Breakfast was cheap, but supermarket bought sandwiches are better. Stayed here for two nights. I received amenities only on the first day. Probably should've asked them to replenish my shampoo and shower gel for the second day because I didn't receive any. I will swear off hostels shared bathrooms from now on.

        The room is okay. It is quite clean. the location is fantastic, it is located right next to the Cologne Hbf. however, they have the WORST public shower room. It is very dark, and you don't feel comfortable during shower. Luckily I stayed there only for one night.

        This place is in the heart of the city I will say....Anywhere you go 17-18 mins is max. Didn't have to buy transportation tickets only... In my trip, I only spend 6€ for transport (Airport to Hostel = 3€). The only problem was drunk people... as it is in the city at night it is very noisy, was not able to sleep at all. Hostel people were shouting a lot. Yes, they were having fun but it was too bad for me. Rest it is recommended a place to stay.

        I should probable stay away from hostels from now on”

        The location was good and the staff were helpful. I stayed in a single room and it had a strange smell and rather dirty. The bathroom stalls were shared and they had a weird stench. Maybe because they're connected to the toilets which smelled terrible. The price is a little steep (probably because of the good location) considering the shared bathroom and the teeny tiny shower gel bottle they gave me. I probably should've booked a normal hotel instead

        It's easy to find from the Koln Hfb. By the Koln Hfb are nice places to eat breakfast which are very close by. The wifi wasn't perfect, but i didn't mind it that much. The room and the given supplies were clean. We slept good. There were enough electricity inputs to charge you're devices. You can storage your luggage, even when you're checked out. I was pleasantly surprised. It was better then my expectations.

        There is very closed to Koln Central Station, just about 10 minutes. Nice staff and good customer services. However, room is not clean. Most importantly, I have instructed no tidy up or entered my room without approval, but I saw a painting worker in my room when I came back afternoon. That is unacceptable.

        It was alright, though I was quite surprised by the construction noise at 2am? The walls are really thin as you could hear the conversations next door. No wifi in the room so everyone had to use it in the lobby/kitchen.

        I changed to stay in the female dorm. at last. The staff is so helpful and arranged the female dorm. for me on the previous 3 days, and private room on the latter 2 days. But, a group of noisy English men stayed there...shouting and singing in the midnight. Everyone could not sleep well. Really nightmare.

        Best value for money - definitely downtown cologne”

        relative cheap comparing other houses

        i had orderd a double room with wet room inside over agoda, got a tripple bed room with communal shower and bathroom but used it only alone. receptionist told me that orders from agoda don't differentiate in between double and two bed rooms. so you have to ask first, if the "real" double is free or book directly over their site. it's located 3-5 minutes by foot from the central station / cologne cathedral which means that the hostel is downtown / downtown. there are a lot of pubs, entertainment areas and similar within 15 minutes by foot. bed was very hard and i loved it and slept like a log. i got a room in the 4th floor which was freshly renovated. the only problem is the humidity in the room, therefore you have to ventilate most of the rooms before sleeping in there. the sound insulating windows were in a very good condition. another thing is, that you have to climb up one floor over the stairs and the whole length of the corridor till you reach the elevator. kitchen and smoking / tv area are clean and fine, breakfast is unbelievable for this price. if you wanna use the flat fee for breakfast (4 euros in march / april 2012) you have to order that in advance till 24:00 on the day before. if you don't wanna eat more then 2 rolls (semmeln) pay piece by piece. i've paid for 2 rolls, 2 x butter, ham, 2 coffees and 1 x marmelade approx. 3,2 euros. and it's real, regular coffee in a cup not this nespresso or similar rubbish. even if you don't stay in the house you are allowed to order the breakfast buffet. so, if you are sleeping in another house or hostel and the breakfast in the other place would cost you 5 or more euros... just go there and enjoy. for 5 euros deposit you are able to use a huge locker in the cellar the whole day of your leaving. even if you would go away at 9 p.m. nobody will complain about that.

        Use your judgement prior booking ”

        good location

        When I arrived, I felt bad as my gut feeling telling me that I have booked wrongly. Dodgy place, little place for social and no wifi in the room hence all the people cramp at the lobby area. The toilet can't be flushed so you can imagine what is floating. Smelly carpet at 1st poor means poor hygiene and ventilation. I think the worst only happen to me when I finally at my bed well asleep (thank god with the rennovation at road side in the middle of night), I was asked to wake up as I told I have took other people bed. Half asleep but still can memorize my bed number on the paper, I take it and show it into the his face. He is taken by amaze for a while and left. I continue sleep. After 10 minutes, he came back with a new paper indicate my name and new bed number. I found it very hilarious and in the same time furious for their poor booking system. I insisted my paper and dont they dare to move me to another bed because a mistake he wasnt aware and diligent enough to find ways to solve. I go back to sleep after an hour, telling myself I should not punish because of the management. Talking about the people who run the hostel, I think she has loads of personal problem and hence keep showing a sour face. Get a life please. We send her a paper to print at 6 plus, she told me printer problem at 10 pm. The management, please hire quality staff. Final word, I cant wait to leave when the sun is up at 6 and that is the best feeling I ever had. Thank you for making my stay unforgettable, Station Hostel.
