Black Sheep Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The Black Sheep Hostel is the new hostel in Cologne! We're within close distance to all of Cologne's most beautiful sites, like the cathedral.

Please note that The Black Sheep Hostel is closed during Christmas between 23nd - 27th December 2012. You'll reach us again on 27th December from 2pm. Merry Christmas!

Our Hostel is the perfect place to step into Cologne's abundant nightlife - within walking distance you'll find all kinds of clubs, bars and inexpensive restaurants.

Feel more like relaxing? Our beautifully designed rooms and our family style kitchen where you can prepare your food await you!

Supermarkets and all kinds of shopping possibilities are right around the corner.

From the main station it's very easy to find, only four stops by subway or 5 minutes by foot from the train station 'Cologne South' (Südbahnhof).

Every room is individually designed and we hope you'll enjoy the cosy atmosphere. Try the local beer (Kölsch!) and have a nice chat with other travelers while sitting on our terrace.

We want to make your stay in Cologne as pleasant as possible!

A great hostel experience (and my first!). Very friendly and accommodating staff, very clean rooms (bathrooms included). Lots of showers, including male- and female-only facilities. Good water pressure. Lockers in room require 1 euro deposit, big enough for a good sized backpack. Free Internet on the computer in the kitchen very nice for checking in with home!

The kitchen is a highlight of this hostel; breakfast is basic, but filling (toast and muesli, plus coffee and tea). There's plenty of room in the pantry and fridge for you to store your own food, too.

My only complaint is that there were a lot of traffic sounds until late into the night, as well as noise from people congregated outside the nearby McDonalds (late night Magnum McFlurries!). It's not too terrible, but if you're a super light sleeper, bring headphones or earplugs, or ask for a room away from the main street.
