Read on to see why this is one of the best hostels for backpackers to Düsseldorf.
There’s multiple common space for you to hang out
To create a more relaxed and casual atmosphere for guests who hang out in groups or like to make new friends in the hostel, there’s multiple chill-out space. There’s a big room between the reception and kitchen area with various tables and chairs for dining. You can sit down at their comfy sofa, watch television or play board games with other guests in the room next door. There’s another space with two computers and Wi-Fi connection throughout the whole premises for guests’s use.
A hostel is not a hostel without a kitchen!
Between these common spaces and playrooms, there’s a small communal kitchen for guests to cook their own meals. Kitchen tools, condiments, tea and coffee are available for use without extra charge. Enjoy the homely atmosphere and convenience of sharing different home cooked cuisines from all walks of life and small talks with other guests at Backpacker Düsseldorf.
Their dorms look alive with lots of spaces
Backpacker Düsseldorf has 60 beds consisting of 4-bed, 6-bed and one 10-bed dorms. Showers and toilets are off the corridor. The hostel’s artistic interior design with colourful paintings on all the walls bring joy and energy to its atmosphere. Their dorm rooms are slightly bigger than other normal dorms that usually look so packed with beds, backpacks and belongings of guests left all over the place.
They are customer-friendly and helpful!
The hostel’s manager (who used to be a traveler in South America and Australia) and staff are very easy-going, open-minded and they came from all walks of life. Thus, you can ask for recommendations on exploring Düsseldorf and have a casual chat when they are around. There’s always an emergency number for guests to call if none of the staff is available at the hostel.
