Best Hostels in Dusseldorf for Backpackers and Budget Travellers
Dusseldorf is a city in western Germany that sits along the Rhine River. It's also the capital of the state North Rhine-Westphalia and is an economic center for the country. It's a densely populated city that is famous for its active nightlife, fashion industry, and carnival. It also hosts a number of trade fairs and events throughout the year.

The city was heavily destroyed during World War 2 and today it has a lot of modern architecture. The Old Town is still a popular place to visit and it was rebuilt following historic plans on the original foundation walls. Today many tourists go to the old town to shop or visit the popular bars at night. Within one square kilometer there are about 260 bars and coffee shops.

Dusseldorf has a limited selection of hostels but there are a good number of budget hotels around town. If you're looking for the atmosphere of a hostel, then there are a couple of options that are affordable but perhaps more than you would expect to pay.

A good hostel for solo travellers and small groups.

Düsseldorfer Strasse 1, Dusseldorf
The City Youth Hostel in Dusseldorf is an affordable place to stay that is clean and comfortable. It's kind of a mix between a hostel and hotel because it offers dormitory style rooms (as well as private rooms) but it doesn't have the social atmosphere that you'd hope for in a backpacker's hostel. It's a simple and basic place to stay but it has everything a budget traveler might need. There are both dorms and private rooms available. Private rooms include singles and doubles that are equipped with televisions and internet connections. Dorms sleep up to four people and are split by gender. Breakfast is available to guests and is quite good.

Internet is available for free if you are under 27, but otherwise you have to pay for it and prices can be quite high. The surrounding neighborhood has an authentic feel, but it is a bit removed from the tourist attractions. If you're in town to visit the historical heart of the city, the location can be a bit inconvenient.

Private Room from $29.39

Hunsrückenstr. 11 Düsseldorf -Altstadt, Dusseldorf
Hotel Alt Dusseldorf is a popular hotel with budget travelers in Dusseldorf. It's conveniently located in the historical district in the city and is just a few steps from the Burgplatz Square. The Heinrich-Heine-Allee subway station is just forty yards away from the hotel.
