DJH Düsseldorf: Accommodations For Budget Friendly Friends

March 3, 2016

I’ve spent a two nights stay in the Landesverband Rheinland/DJH Düsseldorf so that you can have some great tips on places to stay for your budget friendly friends.


Landesverband Rheinland | DJH Düsseldorf


Staff at the DJH Düsseldorf

All of the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. I bugged them on more than one occasion with WIFI access, parking information and luggage storage. None of the staff were ever difficult and they all answered my questions in perfect English which was incredible for me (especially when I was too tired to attempt to speak German).


Room Accommodations 

The room was spacious. I was in a 4 bedroom dorm room in which I had all for myself. The toilet and shower room were separate which makes it easy when you’re splitting the room with 4 others.


Food and Drinks

I skipped breakfast the first morning not because I wanted to but simply because I was half asleep waking up in the morning and had no idea that there was a breakfast buffet included. Of course, once I figured it out the second morning, I took great advantage of all the wonderful warm crispy buns and toppings! Breakfast included sandwiches, toppings, yogurt, cereal and fruit.


Common Area at the DJH Düsseldorf

Which common area? They have multiple smaller common areas across the hostel rather than one large one. You have the option to sit in many common spots across the yard outside, and there are also a few tables in the bar area and a couple more in front of their television set. I spent a good few hours here working on my blog on the last day and have no complaints!


Location of Accommodations 

The location of this hostel is by far my favorite thus far. Through my European journey, I have never had such a key location! Although it is not in the city center, it is on the opposite side of the Rhine River, known as the ‘rich side of town’ or Dusseldorf’s ‘green city’. If you’ve read my blogs before, you know I love being in green cities! This weekend was also the last weekend of the summer amusement park and/or carnival which was conveniently located just a step away from the hostel location. The only difficult thing about the location is that since it is located away from the heart of the city, it is a little bit more difficult to get into town to do some sightseeing. You have the option of taking a bus that takes a little longer than expected, or you can walk across the Rhine River on the bridge which is still a 15-minute walk to the tram which takes you to the city center. If you don’t mind a little walk, this location will be perfect for you as well.
