Cute hostel located very close to the train station and only a 15-20 min walk to the shopping streets, Witte de WIthstraat, Markthal, etc. We got a private room and I was surprised at how much shelving space there was to put my belongings. Each floor has shared showers and toilets. Facilities were very clean, front desk staff was helpful and friendly. Renting a towel is a little pricy. They also have daily food activities like pancake breakfasts, etc. Would recommend!

This is a dream hostel. Once you check in you will never want to leave. It's seriously the coziest place to stay and meet amazing people in Rotterdam.

Great Hostel, friendly atmosphere, right in the heart of Rotterdam. Most nights they have excellent value dinners with huge portions; More than an elephant could eat. There are bikes to rent and a cycle tour to kinderdijk where the guide could make cycling fun despite the wind and rain. 😄

Great, chilled out, relaxed atmosphere, and really great kitchen. Book exchange decent, good internet. They do communal activities as well to see around Rotterdam :) staff were friendly and helpful. Wish there was an elevator to help with luggage, but that's really my only criticism. On a quiet street, so close the central station, and within reasonable walking distance of everything else.

The location of this hostel is conveniently close to the station and very easy to find. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is very homey and welcoming. The wifi was good and so was the breakfast. The rooms and showers were clean.

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

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

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.

Happy to hear this lovely words, thanks for staying with us! Don't miss the Free pancake breakfast when you're planning to visit us again! (the internet cable must have been unplugged, next time just ask the staff to help you)

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.
