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
"Good location because near the Fairground and budget price - The location is good since it is near the Koln Fair Exhibition. The price is reasonable since during fair events most of the hotels and apartments are very very expensive. It is very basic but if you just need a place to sleep and shower with free breakfast then it is ok. It is clean since they give you fresh new linen on the day you arrive. But they don't change those linen anymore...

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. Key cards provide entrance to the main door and the rooms, so it definitely feels safe. This is not the kind of hostel that feels like you're staying in someone's apartment, but it's not impersonal either. It has a very nice dining room for the free buffet breakfast, which includes a range of...
"404 Hostel is a small hostel converted from a house. It is operated by the owner and there are a limited amount of beds, so it's the type of hostel where everyone gets to know each other the first day. The Location 404 Hostel is easily accessed by train with simple directions to follow -- it is four stations from the main station with one change. The owner of the hostel is very obliging with information about the local attractions and...

A&O Köln Neumarkt
"A&O Köln Neumarkt is an extremely clean, well organized hostel. Although it’s not so centrally located, it’s easily accessible by public transport. However, there is nothing included in the price other than your stay. If you want anything other than that (and that means really anything) you have to pay extra. The building has been recently renovated and there are plenty of rooms available. The Location The hostel is not so close to the...

Clean, well located, great coffee shop and supermarket on ground floor (the old guy serving the coffee is a champ), very clean, decent size rooms and beds, great kitchen and I met some cool people here -- although perhaps this was a busy weekend as I could envisage the place being difficult to meet people also.

Pathpoint Cologne Hostel
"Beautiful - Very close to hauptbahnhof (train station), which is itself right next to the cathedral. Nice contemporary style and well thought to the last details. For instance, there are hooks where you can hang your wet towels, so many hostel just don't have that. Lights and plugs above every bed. The kitchen looked nice though I didn't use it. It's is more of a quiet hotel than one you would go to party, which is fine by me. No wifi in the...
