Having a café-bar and a theater, the Wohngemeinschaft is not a typical hostel. It’s smartly intended as a café offering some delightful pastries matched with coffee or tea in the morning, then transformed into a bar at night. The central ambiance certainly comes from the lively bar at night with upbeat music, welcoming staff and flowing drinks where locals and...

The place is excellent... the tematic is fantastic, location is perfect and also the pricing... We took breakfast option and we were really pleased. The food is great, a nice and tasty German breakfast. I would only recommend to provided better signs to get to the reception. I hated going through the bar like an idiot while everyone was drinking.....

Stayed for two nights in the room with the legos. It was a really funky room with platform beds and giant windows. Best pillows I've seen in a hotel in a long time. The hostel occupies two floors of a building, with the reception and living room on the 4th floor. I'd probably call it more of a small hotel...

I stayed 1 night in the 8 bed dorm and 1 night in a private single room. Best things about the place: -beautifully decorated and clean -plenty of showers/toilets to share, even a bathtub on floor 6!! -the shared dorm room was seriously impressive. Privacy curtain, massive comfortable bed, individual power plug/light/shelf/lockable bag storage. -great location, cool area of town....

Very nice location right in the center of Cologne. Also the room decoration was really original and we really enjoyed our stay! The only detail was that the toilets and bathroom were not directly in the room which wasn't really highlighted on booking.com when we took the room! But I can only recommend the hostel and also the breakfast is...

We came to stay here for a long weekend in Cologne over December, to go to the Christmas Markets and some music concerts. It was perfect. I loved the quirky room decor, and really appreciated the small social common area with the honesty bar. The only word of advice I'd give is to definitely not try and drive here -...

Die Wohngemeinschaft is the best hostel I have ever slept in so far! It has literally everything you need during a trip or short holidays. The whole place is clean and adjusted to visitor’s needs. Every room is furnished in a different, impressive way. You’ve got a lot of privacy even in a room for 8 people. Beds are huge,...

Great location, good security, love the room (with a view-our room that is), immaculate cleaniness, great designs of rooms, free coffee and tea, lovely lounge, great shower & toilet, friendly and helpful reception staff and last but not least, great price for a hostel like this. Perfect place to be in Cologne. Highly recommended!

Good security, friendly reception. Comfortable rooms and clean toilet. Free tea, coffee and board games in the common area too. Last but not least, wonderful interior design where each room has its own theme. Highly recommended for single, group, or couples. Worth the money!
