Bathroom was a bit gross, lots of mould. Was so hot in the rooms because the heaters were turned up so high (is this to stop the mould?) The beds were clean though. It's a hotel as well, so atmosphere would vary a bit. Prime location! Right in the centre, so if that's all you want then it would work. Staff weren't the most helpful, got some wrong information about trains and what not, so it's research yourself in that respect.


People got laptops stolen from their single person rooms, and it seem that the doors are just left open while cleaning personel is gone somewhere. Also you need the door card to acces the stairs to the rooms, but the elevator is without any control/lock. I slept well in the 6 bed dorm room which was nice for the type. (Bunkbeds w curtains, low amount of squeaking). Breakfast (for dorm) costs 7,5 euro, and is good with lots of different items.


Overall hotel is good in a great location and fairly good value. My friend and I paid 70 euros each for a twin room for two nights B&B. The reception looks great and bar too, but once through the face the stair and rooms need a good clean and perhaps a lick of paint. The only real complaint from us was the colour of our feet after walking on our bedroom carpet! BLACK! Definitely needs a good carpet clean!!! Stay here if you want a cheap, easy hotel in a good location, just maybe keep shoes on

Please remove mold in bathroom. One of the receptionist was not helpfull.


Fui con tres amigos. Teniamos reservadas cuatro camas en un cuarto de 5 y cuando llegamos nos distribuyeron las camas en cuartos como quisieron . Me parecio una falta de profesionalidad enorme, sobre todo cuando venia indicado explicitamente en la reserva que teníamos un cuarto de 5.


Muy sucio. Aunque sea viejo eso no justifica la mala limpieza. Nos encontramos un bidet arrancafo en el labavo y un lavamanos arrancado en medio de la habitacion. Muy mala ventilacion

Arredamento molto datato, sia nella hall sia nelle camere; i bagni lasciano alquanto a desiderare. Nel complesso carino comunque, in pieno centro. La colazione servita a buffet è molto abbondante e offre una vasta scelta. Ottimo per soggiornare per qualche giorno, non per troppo tempo. Le camere sono molto piccole (noi eravamo in due e abbiamo alloggiato in una camera singola con letto ad una piazza e mezza nonostante avessimo prenotato una doppia).


It took a while to find my booking. There's no lockers on the rooms, and reception could take my backpack with valuables but not taking responsibility of it. A girl worn me about thieves & just that night, somehow, someone opened our door & try to still a girl's backpack from her bed! luckily she woke up & started screaming so the thieve run away. After a while we 5 people decide to lock & block the door & went to sleep just to wake up with police screaming with a light through the window. Crzy


Excellent location - close to many shops, bars and restaurants. Other than that, it was well below par. For the same money, in more expensive cities I've had much better accommodation. It was a case of 'how many beds can we chuck in each room?' The staff were pretty useless too - they couldn't tell me where I might find a 'sports bar' for a game (heaps of them around). Also couldn't help with local tips for things to do - the girl behind the desk shrugged her shoulders.Then told me to google


Localização excelente, no centro de Rotterdam, no meio de variadas lojas famosas e restaurantes de ótima qualidade e das conhecidas redes de fast food. Quarto muito bom com 6 camas e banheiro no quarto. No entanto, não tem café da manhã conforme diz o site do Hostelworld. somente para as reservas mais caras que não são de quartos compartilhados. No geral, o custo benefício é muito bom. Recomendo
