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 :(

We had a great stay with a group of friends for a single night. The owner is a young guy, very friendly and flexible. We were allowed to checkout a bit later than usual. There is one shower and one toilet, but everything is clean and user-friendly. The kitchen is filled with all things you need to prepare your own breakfast (bread, cheese, ham, hagelslag and a toaster-machine. Brew your own fresh filter coffee and/or tea in the morning. Beds are very comfortable and all linnen clean. Top!
