You will find the Downtown Hostel right in the heart of Cologne. Be right in the middle of big city life and experience the best Cologne has to offer. The central location offers walking distances to all of the most important sights and points of interest.After a long day of shopping on one of the longest shopping promenades in Germany, relax and take in the view from our balcony.

Right in the city centre you will find the Downtown Hostel. Just a few minutes walk from our front door is the main train station, with a view of the most important sight: the cologne cathedral, we will welcome you at our 24h reception. From our excellent location in the middle of the city, you are a stones throw away from many places of interest. Art and culture, bars and clubs as well as shopping on one the largest shopping promenades in Germany – our Hostel is the perfect access point for everything Cologne has to offer. Right around the corner are numerous bars and restaurants. However, if you are not in the mood to go out, there is a great opportunity to get groceries in the integrated supermarket on the ground floor and you can cook a meal in the Hostel’s kitchen.
