Very good 8.0
Comfortable in Great Location
The room was small but spotlessly clean and the beds were really comfortable. All we did was sleep and shower in the room so no need for any extras. The private bathroom was also spotless. The hostel is perfectly located beside the main train station and the Cathedral so within short walking distance of eating/drinking and shopping.

Perfect for Just the Basics
This is a nice hostel/hotel. Small rooms, all the necessities, but quite basic. Was perfect for a weekend trip with friends. Really great location!

A Great Location
A small but clean room. You have everything you need. A hotel is near by the old town, best area to shop and eat. A walking distance to Köln Hbf.

Not bad at all
The hotel was surprisingly clean and comfortable. It is located in a very close proximity to the Cathedral and the train station. The room was small but for a couple of nights it would serve the needs. the bathroom was clean and had all the necessary amenities. Check in for quick and so is check-out. Overall, a good place to stay for one-two nights.

No frills, pretty great...but dogs???
Excellent staff, great location, super clean room, hot water. Sketchy elevator, but fun. :) Apparently, this place allows dogs. Ooops! Not terribly stoked about hearing damned dogs barking. If I wanted that, I could've slept on the steps of the dom. Luckily I only stayed a night.
