Very nice hostel, near the sea. The staff is very welcoming. The beer at the bar is cheap, the breakfast is very good: But the lockers are way too small ( not possible to put a computer for exemple), the price is very expensive ( almost 40 euros per night), and there is just 2 showers in this hostel....not enough...

Great hostel, awesome staff and very relaxed atmosphere makes it easy to chill and meet people, highly recommend, the 4 Euro shuttle trip is sweet and considering a tram ride is 2.80 it's well worth it.

Fantastic stay, Glenn was hilarious and made our stay the best of our hosteling experience! Just make sure you know how to get there by public transport if you can't call to book the shuttle.

It's a nice and cool hsotel, very close to the beach and the city centre. The atmosphere was great as well, but the bathrooms especially the shower were disgusting and dirty. The six bed dorm was too small for six people and had a window what you could open only a tiny little bit. The price you have to pay for this hostel is too much, although the included Breakfast/Wifi and the location were good.

I LOVE this place! Intended to stay 1-2 days...but decided to stay a week (and even then was felt too early for me to leave!). The beach is amazing- no matter what time of year. The staff, dorm-mates, and locals are fantastic human beings. The pad is chill and comfortable and it's super easy to travel between Amsterdam and Nordwijk. Heart you all!

Great place to stay near a nice beach. The safe lockers need to be replaced wit real lockers as they don't fit a laptop and aren't that useful. Otherwise fantastic.

Party hostel with party staff. Some of them were unfriendly and mostly drunk. The beach was nice and we were able o visit Amsterdam, Den Haag and Rotterdam because we came by car. Wouldn't go there without, because the shuttles are expensive. Keys are 15€ deposit each, so prepare for that. When we wanted to return just one of the two we had the night before we left, it didn't seem to be possible, because the man an the "reception"/bar didn't understand what we wanted and made fun of us.

I did not realize that it would be such a trek from the main station. I had to take another train, 10 e and another bus, over an hour travel so..for the amount I paid to get there I could have just stayed in Amsterdam at a more expensive hostel. But the beach was nice, rented a bike. Staff parties with guests and locals are allowed in main common area all night. had a issue with loud pipe noise in room which was never fixed, hard to sleep. Clean hostel and staff is welcoming and friendly.

Awesome vibe. Not much to do but go to the beach or outside cities, but still a nice place to chill. Shower really sucked, but besides that it was a nice place to stay. Staff is awesome and fun to hang out with.

The hostel was cool, but some things could be better like the size of the lockers and the facilities, buy your own beer is too much work, they could sell beer there :) Besides, that was the only hostel where I didn't receive a map or any recommendations for places to eat, or stuff to do... I mean, when I arrived I just did the check-in and was it =S Well, the pool table is great and the quiz which the staff did, also great. If you like just staying in the beach go there!

It was a nice little spot if you don't mind big dorms. Friendly staff. Hour long shuttle to Amsterdam.

The top quality staff really made our time here memorable, attending to our every need! Great place to stay to see more of the Netherlands, shuttle into Amsterdam or hang around and check out the Noordwijk beach and town. Very sociable and chill communal areas and no need to stress about a dirty hostel as the place was scrubbed impeccably clean daily, never seen so many cleaning staff in one place! Definitely check out flying pig beach hostel!

The location is remote and difficult to reach. All the cost advantage goes away due to the location. You either take the shuttle service provided by the hostel otherwise you have to take a train and a bus to reach and it takes over an hour from amsterdam train station And despite such a remote location, even the property size is small and not exactly on the beach. The common room is small and not impressive. Choose carefully before booking this hostel

Pub on the top floor and nice clean beds on the bottom floor. Kitchen has all you need, breakfast was decent, working wifi, lockers too small for laptops, close to the beach. Had a great stay, thanks!

If you are looking for a place to chill, relax, do nothing and meet a lot of people; then this is the place to book. I spent there 3 days of my stay in the Netherlands and it was awesome. very close to the beach and it has a smoking room and a big balcony with BBQ pit. you can cook your own food or the staff can make you meals for a reasonable price. it feels like the hostel never sleeps; there is always life.
