Room Quality

Room of Pathpoint Cologne Backpacker Hostel

We stayed in a 4-bed dorm & it was quite spacious. Even after 8+ bags, our room wasn’t full. There are individual lockers for every member. The room also had a private bathroom. The good thing was that there were enough plugs for everyone! \m/

Kitchen Quality

The kitchen of Pathpoint Cologne Backpacker Hostel is really good! There are 3 separate cooking stations & lots of utensils in the kitchen. Their dining area is also comfortably big. If you are looking to buy ingredients for cooking, go to the Cologne Train Station & buy it from Rewe or Rossman.

Amenities

Interesting trivia time: Pathpoint Cologne Backpacker Hostel was an old church. The picture above shows the original structure of a church. That’s where the breakfast is served. There are few vending machines for snacks & drinks. If you want to just chill, you can sit on the 1st floor of the same building.

On good, sunny days, you can also chill outside as well.

They have a bar as well. If you are feeling lazy to go out for a drink, just sit at this bar.
