I had a great time staying here. The beds were very comfortable, and it's central location made it ideal for a visit. The owner, Joep, was extremely helpful and was able to give useful information about the city.

Joep the owner does everything he can to make you feel at home in both the hostel and Nyjmegen. Forthcoming with lots of information and recommendations about what to do during your stay. Good wifi and comfortable beds. Great location - 5 minute walk to the market square and 15 minute walk from the main train station.


Tiny hostel with great flexible owner "Joep" and perfect location on the edge of the city centre. Great posiibility: van Zutphen (perfectly googlable) can drop off mountainbikes with which you van ride over the red or green mtb-trail. The surrounding woods are unique in the netherlands


Open kitchen and very friendly staff. :) There should really have more than 1 bathroom :(
