Welcome to the Station Hostel in Cologne

The Station Hostel is Cologne’s original Backpacker-Hostel and Budget Hotel in the very heart of the city. Located only a stone throw away from the central station, the famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) and just 1 train stop, or 15 minutes walk away from Cologne Trade Fair (Köln Messe), we are the ideal place to host you during your travel or business trip.

Stroll along the Rhine River, visit museums or the historical Old Town with its narrow alleys and numerous beer halls, get your family and friends a gift on Germanys most frequented shopping street, all within walking distance!

You will find everything a traveler needs to feel home away from home. We provide all kinds of rooms from single ensuites to budget beds in dormitories (no bunks!). We are happy to accommodate groups as well as solo travelers and love to bring people from all over the world together. In our cafe, bar, restaurant and beer garden you can find the ideal place to make friends and memories with locals. We also show sporting events on several screens in both our bar and beer garden and have live music as well as DJs playing. There is free Wi-Fi in all common areas, as well as most rooms and our staff will always do their best to assist you with any questions or information you need to make your stay as convenient as possible.

Station hostel was one of the nicest hostels I stayed in. Really near the train station so no need for taxis etc. Really modern and clean rooms. staff were really friendly and the free internet was a great way of keeping in contact with home. Breakfast was not included however, but was available to buy. overall, I was really impressed with the station hostel.

Die absolut phantastische lage direkt an bahnhof/musical dome/ dom/ innenstadt ist ja wohl kaum zu toppen !!! das personal ist wirklich äußerst nett und hilfsbereit... wir hatten doppelzimmer mit eigenem kleinen bad, klein aber sauber. konnten unsere koffer noch kostenlos den ganzen tag im dafür vorgesehenen keller bunkern, sodass wir beide hände zum power-shoppen danach frei.

What a pleasant surprise! They provided towels and soap which many hostels don't. Staff was very accommodating and the location is the best right next to train station.

Our room was spacious and clean. Location was absolutely fantastic, less than 3 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes max to the centre of town. The staff were really friendly and helpful and it helped that there was a clean, well equipped kitchen to cook our own food, saving alot of money.
