There’s a closet inside each room where you can store your belongings, though you need to bring your own padlock. If you are opt for something more luxurious, go ahead and book the double room.

Partying and smoking are forbidden inside the room. The whole hostel never seems too loud, enabling guests to enjoy their own time and privacy while still hanging out with each other. The Wi-Fi connection speed throughout the whole building is fast, and never seems to go down.

Where to stay away from the crowd!

Although Downtown Hostel Cologne does not organize big parties, guests often hang out with each other in the main hall area where they can have a chat, or even play instruments (pianos, guitar, etc). As the hostel is operating in cooperation with other organizations in Cologne, such as Cologne’s free walking tour ‘Can You Handle It’, you can always ask them about what kind of concerts, festivals, and other events they have going on in town.

At the end of the day, if you want to stay away from the crowded touristic Dom of Cologne for a while, Cologne Downtown Hostel is certainly the place to stay!
