**Breakfast buffet is included in our prices!**

The Youth Hostel Cologne-Riehl offers all the advantages of an up-to-date accommodation at budget prices.

It is located in a quiet area next to the Rhine River with excellent parks for inline skating, jogging, cycling or picnics. There are large, public playgrounds and green spaces for games directly behind the hostel. However, the centre of Cologne can be reached within 8 minutes by tram or 40 minutes walking.

There are 116 rooms divided into singles, doubles, triples and four-bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with shower, WC and individual lockers.

The large, public bus and car parking area right in front of the hostel can be used without a charge.

Thanks to its well-lit and spacious rooms and the large number of conference rooms available, the Youth Hostel is perfectly suited for families, travel and school groups, backpackers as well as conferences, meetings and workshops.

The house is perfect for families, backpackers and travelling groups as well as for meetings, conferences, seminars and workshops.

The Cologne-Aktiv Team is looking forward to helping you organize your complete leisure activities offering a wide range of individual programs or packages for schools, groups, families and individuals.
