Weltempfänger Backpacker Hostel
Our backpacker hostel is located at the edge of the city center. Beside our enclosed café, in the nearby neighbourhood you will find lots of nice, cheap restaurants, a bunch of stylish and old-fashioned bars, dancing clubs, theater, cinema, shopping, green parks for relaxing etc.
We are easily accessible by public transport. We offer low priced but comfortable accomodation, with friendly people in a good location and we hope everybody will feel very welcome in our house.
For self sufficient guests we offer kitchen facilities in the common room. But also our café provides opportunities to have a rich breakfast, a hot cup of coffee or tea with a delicious piece of cake in the afternoon, or a relaxing glass of wine or beer with friends in the evening. Our hostel is a very good starting point to explore the city of Cologne, this might happen i.e. with one of our bicyle rentals.
All dormitory rooms contain bunk beds and lockers. You can bring your own padlock or buy one at the reception. Most of the rooms contain private bath. Linen are provided, towels can be rented.
The fully equipped kitchen in the first floor is open for common use. You can store the food you brought in the fridge. For a small extra fee there will be offered a nice breakfast in the Weltempfänger Café.
