Spent two nights in a 6-Bed shared room Positives: 1) The hostel is quite small and therefore, you get to meet different people. 2) There is a small kitchen where you can cook, heat (There is a microwave) your own food. On the other side of the kitchen, there is a dinning space. Here you can have breakfast or a...

I stayed here on arrival in Germany and had no problems getting there from the airport. Wifi was quite weak in the dorms but fine in common room and dining room. Shower was good, everything was clean. Breakfast was simple but included in the price so that was great. No big complaints, would probably return.

Patrick n his team treat u as if u r one of their family. Beds very comfortable n rooms reasonable size for most people. Showers good size and easy to use... good temperature... Kitchen easy to use but some guests not respecting others with their responsibilities. Would recommend n will return soon

It was my first experience of staying in a hostel, can say Backpackers Dusseldorf is quite what I was expecting. The personnel is nice and helpful. Facilities are satisfying, i.e. bed linens, towels. It is not far away from the city centre, and may save your budge.

I would describe my visit as below average at very best. In my opinion, for the price, the room was far too small, slightly dated and making my own bed is something I would expect to be included in the cost. Upon arrival the customer service was also extremely disappointing.

I've stayed twice in Backpackers Düsseldorf and plan to stay again when I travel to Düsseldorf. The old town is within walking distance, rooms are clean and it's quite peaceful place to stay. In my opinion very good value for money.

Backpackers Düsseldorf is a smaller hostel about a 15-20 minute walk away from the old town. My partner and I stayed in a four bedroom dorm with shared bathroom. The room was clean and bed relatively comfortable. There is common areas including a kitchen and two living rooms with one computer. Unfortunately the kitchen is closed after 10 pm and...

My experience with this hostel was pretty average. The 10-person mixed dorm was clean, bathroom facilities were acceptable and the kitchen provided enough to cook a quick meal. The location was not too bad. It's a bit of a walk from city center, but fairly close to the upscale shopping district, Koenigsallee. It's a ten minute bus ride from the...

Was here for a night on a transit 2 years ago and I still remember the experience (Not on Aug 14). Friendly staff and neat Basic Hostel. If you are on a Budget, a very Standard, experienced Hostel. Called then up and booked a bed for a friend too although 3rd Party sites ran out of Beds. I would recommend...

There was excrement on the wall in this hostel, and that wasn't even the worst thing about it. Myself and a friend booked a private two bedroom room for four nights in this disgusting hole. We were willing to spend a bit more for a private room, so €67 seemed expensive to us but we were willing to pay it...

“Rooms for two people are very small, so you won't be doing much else than sleeping in them, and the showers downstairs can be tricky. First it's boiling water and next icy, but the rest of the showers are ok to use.”
