HI Köln Riehl Reviews


This hostel is packed with kids! there were hardly any adults staying there. Other than that, i guess it's an okay hostel. Close to a train stop, but not very close to the city center. Pretty clean, standard breakfast. I wouldn't stay there again.


stayed for a week with school. apart from being woken up by an alarm at one in the morning its was pretty decent! nice food. internet access. bed are pretty comfy and theres the strassenbahn right over the road.


I stayed here for four nights with a scholarship group. The beds were decent, the whole place was clean, and the food was mediocre -- but also free. Don't expect internet access. For a cheap bed in Koln I recommend it -- U Bahn is close by and a cab ride from downtown is about 7 Euro for two people.


Fairly quiet -- went with a school group and very nice rooms. just avarage really.

I stayed here for four nights in June. Outside the city centre but convenient enough to get around, there's a U Bahn stop about five minutes away. Location was very peaceful. Amenities were good, rooms were quite big (we were in a four-bedder). There was a big school group there at the same time but everybody was fairly civilised. Breakfast provided. There's an excellent beer garden next to the U Bahn stop.
