Cologne is one of the largest and most-developed cities in Germany. It is not surprising that there are many hostels in Cologne, which are located in different parts of the city (most Cologne hostels are mainly in the city center and near the train station). The train station is huge and can take you literally anywhere in Europe. Your choice of Cologne hostels is also significant when it comes to prices as there is everything from very cheap and basic to quite expensive and sophisticated hostels in Cologne.
The Cologne/Bonn Airport is far from the city, but it has regular buses to the train station. If you are on a Euro trip, you should consider visiting Cologne -- you will not only enjoy a lively environment and good nightlife but you will need days to see all the sights in the city even if you use the great public transportation and if your Cologne hostel is in the middle of the Altstadt. There is a long list of places to visit -- the Cologne Cathedral (the symbol of the city and a huge cathedral that took centuries to complete), the Cologne City Hall (built in the twelfth century and the oldest still in use in Germany), the Great St. Martin Church, the Church of the Assumption, the Basilica of St. Severin, the Holy Trinity Church, the Gürzenich, the Overstolzenhaus, the Ludwig Museum, the Schnütgen Museum, the Museum for Applied Art, the EL-DE Haus, the Imhoff-Schokoladenmuseum (chocolate!), and the Sports and Olympic Museum.
Cologne is also a famous education center with some of the best universities in Europe. The city is quite international and it offers countless places for going out -- restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs where you can listen to different music and taste any kind of food. It is a great city that is more than worth visiting.

Station Hostel for Backpackers
"The Station Hostel is an ok hostel in a good location. It's located about a five minute walk from the train station in the center of Cologne. There are a couple of grocery stores located just down the street, and the Dom (Cologne cathedral) and surrounding shopping areas are within walking distance. The hostel is a bit sterile, mostly in the HI/prison style, and is fairly functional and initially unappealing. However the recent...
HI - Köln - Deutz City Hostel
"The best hostel I've ever been. Great rooms, great facilities, private parking and fantastic public areas." … "Very clean, very well controlled for security.

There's an excellent beer garden next to the U Bahn stop." … "I stayed here for four...
MEININGER Cologne City Center
"Meininger City Hostel Cologne is both a hotel and hostel, and it has the best of both worlds. It's very modern with bright, bold colors everywhere.

It has a very nice dining room for the free buffet breakfast, which includes a range of...

From Frankfurt airport, catch the train to Mainz, then walk to the Marina, get on the Koln-Dusseldorfer Ferry and enjoy four hours cruising the river with castles, cathedrals and baroque villages along the river bed. Jump off at Boppard, then catch the train to Cologne. Can all be done in about 6 hours.
