A&O Arriving in Dusseldorf after a 3 hour bus ride from Amsterdam on a chilly afternoon in March 2018, I was honestly worried as I did not research as to how to go to the hostel. Although Dusseldorf boasts of a very extensive and reliable metro, tram and bus systems, I still got a little confused. From the Hauptbanhof (main statiob), you can either take bus 732 that goes to Cornelius Strasse (3rd stop) or walk along Adolf Strasse until you reached Karl Strasse (which is actually the Cornelius Stasse). The location of the hostel is good as it is surrounded by many shops, restaurants, bars and what not. Check - in was fast. Bed sheets are at EUR3.50. Wifi is free and fast. Would love to go back and stay in there.. Manuel

I was worried about booking se38ng some of the trip advisor reviews bit ideas not prepared to pay the room rates at the 4 star hotels due to a trade fair. When we walked into tourist info they suggested this as a good value choice. The room for 2 was perfectly adequate and mattress slept really well. Central via tram to both main station, centre of town as well as media hafen. I've only ever stayed In a hostel once before.. Generator in Hamburg. This hotel/hostel was cleaner and ideal for 3 night stay. And I will look at other hostels with a and o too in future

I spent one night in a single room at the A&O and everything was fine. The only thing I missed was a glass or even just a paper cup. No such thing in the room. The room itself was basic but spacious, the bed was fine and everything was in good working order (except the lamp by the bed). Breakfast was fresh and very satisfactory, and the staff friendly and helpful.

4 of us stayed for a football/culture weekend, room was a bit basic & small but it did the job, we were out most of the time and only came back to the room to sleep, and for that it was ideal. 10 minute walk to both the Hauptbahnof and Aldstadt, less to the main shopping area if that's your thing? so pretty good location wise, there's tram stops at the end of the street if you prefer to not walk. The facilities in the hotel were good, bar and lounge area's well populated, friendly and the staff were great too, nothing was too much trouble. Only negative was there wasn't enough staff on for breakfast and people were standing around waiting for things to be replenished, the 2 staff that were working seemed very stressed and tired, although they did their job professionally, it could just have been a bad weekend though? Will definitely look at staying here again next time we are in the area.

A&O Düsseldorf and hygiene are not close topics. From the bedroom to the dishes that supposed to be clean in the dining room the cleaning level was really, really low. I’m sorry to say that. The crew is not very kind and friendly. Common spaces are really noisy and there’s no one trying to keep the place liveable for guest. Breakfast very poor, from the choice to the quality of the food. I had to look for a clean dish in the “clean dishes box” quite a lot before to find a really clean one and it was quite embarrassing...

During a business trip we stayed over at A&O Düsseldorf. We could park our car without any problems. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is okay. You can expect what you pay for. We enjoyed our stay.

A budget hotel/hostel . Nothing fancy but a clean bed, clean bathroom and a very nice breakfast. The lifts... 2 people and 2 suitcases and you pray it doesn't breakdown . Can recommend for a night or two.

Me and my friends stayed here for a few nights in July for a lads wknd. It's our second visit to the hotel as its cheap and cheerful. The hotels about 35 minutes from the town centre and 15 minutes from the train station. When we were there they had a huge fair on in the city, its amazing and id definitely recommend it for the food and beer alone. Great stay and were definitely going again 'that's livin alright' !!!!!!!!

We stayed one night in this hotel because a friend recommendation. We had a terrible night: the TV set turned on by itself, one window got open by itself, when we were trying to sleep, we heard an intense breath and in the morning my daughter had finger marks on her legs turning in bruises and she appeared almost out of bed, as if she had been pulled. Another girl had severe pains in arms and wrists and also we heard a tumult of people that seems to be there, making a lot of noise. Down stairs also at the women rest roomsa door was closed tightly for no reason. When we arrived, there were also one girl disconsolately crying, in a way to draw attention and she finally run out from the hotel.

stayed for 2 nights at the ao hostel in dusseldorf in a dorm for 6 for 6 of us. the beds basically consisted of 3 bunks for 2 people. the bunks had rubber mattresses and one large pillow and a single thin duvet with no sheet on the rubber mattress so you basically had to sleep on the thin duvet to cover the sticky rubber mattress. If all you want is a room to sleep in and shower (which we did) this place is passable. but don't expect any frills because you wont get any. I previously stayed at the ao in Hamburg and found it much better. That said if you are on a budget and want to see Dusseldorf it is in the city centre and within reasonable walking distances of Alstadt (old town) and the riverside (Rhine) so if budget is what you want this place is an option.
