The facility is great. Location is great too which is not far from central station. You can rent bike from hotel however thr bike is not good enough. Maybe the bike rent from train station is better. Wifi is good. And charge in the room is very good for everyone.

Honestly, I was very disappointed, especially since this place had such good reviews. The room lay out was cramped and the bunk beds didn't have ladders. The rooms were hot. Also, it seemed like some people lived at the hostel. A lot of stuff in the rooms spread everywhere. It was just uncomfortable trying to climb over everything and get into a top bunk. It's been the worst hostel I have stayed at. Breakfast was nice tho.

Loved this place!! Very sad to leave it! But we were on the top floor and their are no windows. Room was very hot, but overall a great and comfortable place! And definitely do the hostel dinners when offered. Had a blast playing jenga! And a couple rounds of tic-tac-toe! ;)

Such a wonderful hostel, the staff and style of the hostel are . Location is quite close to the train station which was brilliant for me as I had a 0600 train. Only stayed one night, but the clientele (apart from the dude that put his pack in the middle of the room so everyone had to step around it) were quite awesome, lots of friendly people to have a chat and a beer with on the patio. If I ever come back to Rotterdam, I know where I'm staying!

Hostel was very nice. Staff extremely friendly and knowledge. Lounge was like from your own home very you could easily meet other people. We used their washing machine and all the washes became clean. Kitchen is awesome, you can cook what ever you want to. Location is not best but Rotterdam is not that big that you couldn't get to somewhere within 30 minutes. Room is not special but its very clean. Breakfast is not too good but it's okay for free. I can highly recommend.

This is by far the nicest hostel my partner and I have stayed in on our European journey so far. Incredibly safe, clean, comfy, and FUNKY. Amazing atmosphere, great chill out spaces. FREE MORNING COFFEE!! Good location. Very close to station. Cool garden area. Showers are a bit cool but you adapt and the free breakfast definitely makes up for it. Well done ANI and HAAKIEN .

I really enjoyed it here. The staff were friendly and very accommodating (I was there a month ago), and made it very worth staying there. The location is great. The shower motion sensor thing is weird, but not unusable at all. I enjoyed their breakfast. I would definitely stay there again!

Easily the best hostel experience I have had. The common room is cozy like you're hanging out in the living room of your house. The kitchen is great and has almost every piece of cooking hardware you'll need - real nice patio out back too. The staff were incredible and they did an awesome job of making you feel welcomed into their home. Only planned on staying 2 nights, ended up staying 4! These ladies have thought of all the small things and did it right. A+ hostel experience!

A lot of effort has been put into this hostel, the staff and are super friendly and there is a homely feel. If I visit Rotherham again would be sure to stay at Ani & Haakien.

Amazing breakfast, friendly staff, super location, terrible showers, unbearably hot in upper level dorms.

Thnx for taking your time to write us a review ;) We know we can improve the top floor! When we have some good sunny days here in the Netherlands it indeed get's a little warm up there. We are working on this problem so soon we will have solved it. Great to have had you here & thnx for your commend. Liefs the Ani&Haakien Team!

Everything worked really well. Nice staff and great area to eat, cook, drink and chat. The hostel is near the (beautiful) central station The city is also very nice. Certainly I will stay more than one day next time.
