Hey ;). Hostel is close by to everything, it has pretty fun and great stuff, few free tours during the week(hey Frank ;)) and generally nice atmosphere - they got lovely cat , old school living room like chill out area and lovely backyard(must be awesome in summer). Only thing which bothered me were the showers. They had shower timer, so you couldn't regulate amount and temperature of water. Also breakfast is ok, but bit too sugary, bit of fruit or cheese instead of jam would be great
Super fun, cozy hostel. They just charge a ton for everything! Yikes
This place is not like a hostel, it's like a home. I'm at the end of a three month trip around Europe and I've stayed in a lot of places but this one was special. You're sure to make friends in the lounge area which was very comfortable. Suzie the cat is great. Breakfast is nice and the beds/showers are good. Staff is helpful and kind. Thank you all for everything
Really cute, quirky interior, amazingly clean, great facilities and atmosphere. Stayed for two nights and was contemplating a week more. Couldn't recommend more! I'll miss the place
Awesome hostel, really vibrant staff that make everyone feel warm and welcome! Great facilities including exceptional showers. Really enjoyed my stay here, especially with the free upgrade! Thanks!
Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast, good beer for sell. The only two things can be complained are, first, you cannot adjust the water temperature in bathrooms (it is warm enough but i prefer hotter), and the computer in the living room cannot access to the internet. Other than these two things, it is perfect to stay there. Actually, I extended my stay there from 3 nights to 5 nights.
This is one of my favourite hostels. The atmosphere is very open and friendly so it is easy to meet people. The rooms are up lots of stairs but are spacious enough and there's enough bathrooms and showers.
It was fantastic! A really good place to stay and the staff are very energetic and creative in terms of providing for the guests. I will highly recommend it to others travelling to Rotterdam.
One of our absolute favourite hostels of our entire three months in Europe. Will never forget our time here! We would recommend anyone to visit Rotterdam just to stay at Ani & Haakien. Thank you for having us

Ani & Haakien is by far the best hostel I stayed in on my trip and I stayed in 33 hostels over the course of my travels. I planned to spend 2 nights but I enjoyed it so much at this hostel that I stayed 2 1/2 weeks extra and based my Netherlands portion of the trip out of Rotterdam. Which was easy because its only a 5 min walk to central station. This was by far the cleanest hostel I stayed in. Staff here are some of the best people you will meet and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
My friend and I stayed here for one night. It is a very good one. It's clean, the facilities are good and the staff is nice. The only two minor inconveniences we had were that we saw on the website that they have a parking lot but they don't. They just have two parking spots and if they are luckily free of cars, you still have to pay for them. Also, breakfast only starts at 8 (this is late for us haha) and when we came down at that time, it wasn't ready at all! But I really recommend it anyway!
Amazing hostel. My favorite one I have EVER stayed at! My only complaint is that sometimes the staff were extremely loud, very late at night or very early in the morning and it was oftentimes hard for us travelers to figure out who was working or just there hanging out.
The best hostel ever! Once inside you can tell it is designed for travelers (lockers with chargers) and this hostel is really comfy! I love the hostel at once! Large common area created great place and best atmosphere to meet others. Very helpful and friendly staff that will talk to you and others. Their free architectural tour is also a must-join! Don't look around and this is the place! Thank you the team for making the staying experience so great!
Nice hostel with a cozy common room and chillin atmosphere. Very closs to train station and less than 10 minutes walk to the center. Friendly and helpful staff. Will go back if i return to Rotterdam
Good points: clean, close to train station and breakfast. Bad points: rooms noisy, atmosphere poor! It felt like we were intruding and didn't feel comfortable. Felt very forced!! Pretentious would be the word to describe the place!!
Best hostel ever! Comfy beds. Amazing atmosphere, perfect for solo travellers. Lots of group activities, super helpful and friendly staff. Booked for two nights, stayed three more. Really feels like home. Would definitely stay here again!
Great atmosphere, friendly people (& cat!), awesome decor and just all round good vibes. One of the best hostels I have stayed at in a long time - and like many others I extended my stay! The kitchen is really well equipped, free brekkie and the hostel dinners are great. If I had to make any suggestions, some soap in the 3rd floor toilets would be handy :)
