    Not the best.

    This hostel is in a cool area of Cologne, but it is very loud at night We woke up to someone blasting Cher at 3 am, and it went on for a while. Its a party neighborhood. The place itself is not in great shape, and the management was very firm about not moving my booking dates. I ended up eating the costs.
