Getting here

And that is how you reach HOSTEL KÖLN

Our Location

We are located in the middle of Cologne, between Neumarkt and Rudolfplatz. The Schildergasse (the most popular shopping street in Europe) is only 5 minutes away, and the Cathedral is about 20 minutes away by foot.

And that is how you reach us

By Car

Cologne is not well-known for being the most car-friendly city, but most navigation systems will find us. Underneath we have more details on how one can reach us by car, depending on where you drive in from. We have limited parking, but one of our 8 parking spaces can be booked upon request. More about parking here.

By Tram

From Cologne Central Station take the line 16 or the number 18 (both underground) until you reach ‘Neumarkt’.
After disembarking at Neumarkt it will take you around 5 minutes to reach us by foot.

It is also possible to walk to us directly from Cologne Central Station. This would take you around 20 minutes.

By Airplane

From Cologne-Bonn Airport you can reach the main train station within 15 minutes by taking the S-Bahn lines 13 or 19. From there, take the line 16 or 18 (underground) to the stop “Neumarkt”.
From there it’ll be a short 5 minutes walk.

You can also take a taxi from Cologne/Bonn Airport. This would cost around €35, and would take around 25 minutes to reach us.
