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.
A very clean hostel and the price gives excellent value. The hostel is set in a stunning location and the local bus service gives easy access to airport and train station. The bar/cafe is reasonably priced. My only gripe is that it is a typical Hostel International operation. The staff are efficient without being too friendly and if travelling alone, there is not the atmosphere you will find at other, more intimate hostels. But the location alone makes this place well worth booking.
Mr Beans is extremely basic accommodation. However, this is reflected in the price. The location is fantastic and is ideal for those who do not intend spending much time inside. If you like your home comforts, do not stay here. However, if you simply wish somewhere to lay your head for a bargain price, then I would certainly recommend Mr Beans as a place to stay. The staff are also friendly and helpful.
