the bed and the sheets are smelly, we came late, very hungry, wanted to use the kitchen,but the staff said after 10, the kitchen is not allowed to use, the staircase is very narrow, to take the heavy luggage upstairs was quite dangerous and no staffs help, no bar, breakfast is poor, the bathroom was not clean, location actually is not bad,

Dear Mrs. C. - thanks for your "review". You are female travellers from asia and you are not able to lift your very heavy luggage by yourself. When you travel you should be able to do so.You wrote that the bedding were smelly- you got new fresh bedlinen from us and nothing was smelling on that room. You wrote all these negative points because you arrived at 2145h and expected that we keep the kitchen open only for you. Our staff wants to end the work at 10 pm. is that no understandable?


The atmosphere here was great. Helpful staff and a nice close-knit atmosphere. It's a bit of a walk to the city centre (20-25 mins) but this is more than made up for with the free breakfast and spacious lockers. The bike lock facilities are small but they're in an area that's locked up at night which is great. I doubt there's a better hostel in Dusseldorf.


Bad smelling rooms. Directions received at the reception for public transport absolutely wrong (I ended up at the wrong place). Far too expensive for the quality of the room.

Dear S. thanks for your review. Do your really think we give wrong directions? I mean seriously?? - I some guest you are sharing the room with is smelly, I am sorry but what can we do? We are by far the cheapest place in duesseldorf. So please come down and be realistic. kind regards Patrick (the owner)


The main reason I've rated this hostel so poorly is that it was the first hostel of my stay, and I believe that it had a bed bug problem. I woke up every morning with new bites and at the hostel I'm staying at now it seems they have stowed away in my luggage because I am continuing to suffer this experience every night. I'm covered in welts and have no proper way to clean everything I own at once because I am backpacking. Also the shower is either scalding or freezing.

Dear E. - using bedlinen is mandatory in our property. Everyone has either to use our bedlinen or bring his own. Sleepingbags are forbidden - the rease why is that bedbugs are travelling with sleepingbags. So - I can 100% assure that our beds are clean and bedbug - free. kind regards Patrick (owner)


I like it all about the hostel, definitely going back there when going to Düsseldorf.

Everything is ok. The only problem is the noisy beds...


There were computer, which aren't working. Staff are actually a little rude. Beds were making too much noise, they were really old i believe.


The room was cozy, as it had some chairs and a table (many hostels lack of that).


A repeat visit to the hostel..free breakfast, good sized rooms and common area. The only slight negative is location from old town but in view of the price and value for money then small price to pay..would recommend.


This was a fine hostel but had a funky atmosphere, which may also be due to Dusseldorf - not exactly a stop on the backpacker trail so it did not feel like a place to hang out but the facilities were plenty fine and convenient enough by public transit to the bus station


I checked in very late and they were really nice, the wrote in a board the number of my room and the direction on the stairs, they left some clean bed lines on my bed with a paper with a map and the wifi password, really caring and professional.

This is an excellent place to stay whether travelling solo or in a group. Clean, friendly and the staff are very helpful. It is intimate without being crowded and its location is serviced by bus/trams. Even though the communal kitchen area is rather small, it is still the best place to mix with other travellers. If I were ever in Dusseldorf again (and it is one hell of a city) then I would look this place up immediately.
