Best I've stayed in on this particular trip. Would stay there again in a heart beat.

This is, hands down, my favourite European hostel. The staff is remarkable and it is SO close to the train station. Rotterdam isn't huge so you can walk around everywhere from here. I loved it- the linens were clean, comfy beds, excellent wiifm the pub crawl on Saturdays was fun. Overall, great experience!

It's awesome you have to do your own dishes but clean towels were not able to be be spotted from afar. I'd love it if they would refresh the towels of the sink more often.

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.
