Our backpacker hostel in Cologne is located on the edge of the city center in the district of Ehrenfeld, between the two train stations West and Ehrenfeld and just in front of the subway station 'Piusstraße'. By public transport, the Weltempfänger Hostel is easily accessible .
We offer you a cozy accomodation at a low price, with nice people in a good location and we want everyone to feel welcome.
In the Weltempfänger Café you will find the in-house herb liqeur "Gärtner" (gardener), homemade cakes and soups, a rich breakfast buffet with organic and regional products, coffee specialties with organic and fair trade coffee from the Ehrenfeld roasting "van Dyke" and much more.
For self catering we offer kitchen facilities in the common room.
We frequently arrange special events in the café which is mostly live music with international young artists from the singer/songwriter section, but also dj nights or cake parties.
We try to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible: electricity and water heating is supplied by block heating technologiy and green power. The gas for the block heating are sourced from Greenpeace Energy (wind gas). Biodegradeble cleaning products, waste prevention, poison-free pest control and economical use of water and energy are self-evident for us.
Beside our enclosed café you will find lots of restaurants, a bunch of stylish and old-fashioned bars, night clubs, theater, cinemas, shopping, green parks for relaxing etc. all this within walking distance.
We look forward to seeing you!
