This was the most inviting and homely place I have ever stayed at, hands down. I felt more comfortable and at ease staying here then anywhere else. Not enough can be said about the Staff: SUPER COOL, super helpful, and careing. The facility: clean, really well laid out, all kinds of cool ingenious features, like lockers with wall plugs in them. The atmosphere is very cool as well, it has a great common area/kitchen

Ani & Haakien is peaceful and a very relaxed place with a nice garden and big kitchen. Rooms are nice, with big padlocks and comfortable beds. The bathrooms are very clean and the included breakfast is good. I spent more time than I planned in this hostel because I found a family here and every day was full of life and nice people. I want to give a special thanks to Amin, Joyce & Danielle and all the staff that make this place so special! And I want to thank all the people I met here.

Stayed in the 10 bed dorm, great bunch of people came through in the 2 nights I was the there. Thursday, Friday, Saturday seem to be the nights for going out but not much else. Heard great things about the Free Architecture Tour. What I liked most about this hostel was the small size and homely feel. All of the staff were very warm and welcoming which is important for a solo traveller. Everything was very clean and it adds something a bit different to have a playful cat running around.

Perfectly situated by the train station where it is easy to hire bikes to get around in Rotterdam. Hostel has a lovely atmosphere and beautiful outside area. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are nicely decorated, clean with lockers and a card system for security. Only one thing is that the walls are quite thin so it's a bit noisy to sleep. Bring earplugs and it's all good.

I really liked the hostel. It is very clean and everything seems to be new. The location is excellent and it is perfect for those who would like to walk from the Central Station to the Hostel. The staff was friendly, as everyone in Rotterdam! The only thing I would point is that the room was a little bit cold (I don`t think there was a heater) and light in the early morning (it can be a problem during this time of the year, when the sun rises before 4 a.m). But I would definitely go back!

I will be back! :) There could be some more showers, or at least "shower rules", for some people took a looong time in there, and two showers for 12 beds is not that much.

Really nice hostel, a little expensive but you get what you pay for. The best kitchen I've experienced, good breakfast, comfy beds, clean bathrooms, nice showers, and good area to be in. I chose this one on short notice and was glad I did. Really relaxed vibe and staff was awesome. Also they have a phenomenal cat!

Nice cosy hostel, staff were super friendly and helpful. Not too much going on in the surrounding area, which could be good or bad depending on what you're in to. Some more activities would have been sweet.

As we say: A good sleep & the young creative buzzling Central district area with good coffee places, awesome design shops, rooftop bars, jazz, house & techno nightlife is just a dance away! Liefs Ani&Haakien

Excellent, charming little hostel. Very close to central station, in a decent neighbourhood. Beds were comfortable & bathrooms were nice & clean. The common room has a nice old-time feel thanks to the furniture & decor. The kicthen is well-equipped as far as hostel kitchens go, and the guests do their part to keep it clean (so don't break the cycle!). The staff were very helpful, friendly & funny and have good taste in music too! If you plan to visit Rotterdam, this is where you want to stay.

The Hostel is lovely, and Joyce, one of the girls who owns is is lovely. The staff is very helpful and the atmosphere is great. Their decoration style is also adorable. The Rooms are tiny, but the bed is huge, which is nice. Everything is clean and functions well. Highly recommended.

Very clean place in good location with a nice atmosphere and nice staff. WIFI worked well in the lobby, did not check in the room. Bed very comfy, pillow especially but lack of ladders for the bunk was a nuisance as was the location of my socket for recharging things (inside my locker, very strange place). Could not charge my mobile as it was needed as my alarm too. Breakfast basic nothing fancy and no variety. Overall, fair enough with room for improvement.
