The hostel was in a great location close to lots of shops and short walk to the centre. However the bathrooms were always dirty, the shower was one of the worsts ive been in, either was icy cold or scolding there was no in-between. The beds were plastic and my linen was old and ripped. The kitchen was well equipped however so dirty.


Ohh heavy one Off the Best Hostel ok the Planet . Been there before and will be back son. I Love y is place a e the Breakfast Honey


Great location, helpful staff, nice facilities for a decent price. Everything was just great. Atmosphere was kind of poor, but I only stayed for one night, plus, eventually, this is just Utrecht


Stayed in an 18-bed dorm (which was half filled) for one night. On the plus side, staff were fairly friendly, room was reasonably clean, if a bit grim looking. Given clean sheets and had access to a computer which was nice, also let us stow our bikes in the garden. Downsides: lockers 2 floors below the room which was inconvenient, showers were quite grim, no free breakfast (had to pay 6 Euro which seemed steep). Security inside the hostel was mediocre. Basically, fine for one cheap night's stay.


Had a lovely stay, clean and comfortable rooms, with an excellent location! Just a pity there wasn't more of a vibe.


I cannot recommend this hostel enough. Staff are very nice and helpful and did everything to make my stay enjoyable. Hostel is located in the very heart of the city and is ideal for nightlife, shopping etc.

Rooms seemed a bit cramped (especially to navigate in the dark) and bathroom space was in a little short supply. Staff were really friendly, though, and the bar/lounge was really comfortable and lively.

Hostel Strowis gave me one of my most pleasant hostel experiences to date. Very friendly, fair with a colorful history i cannot recommend this place enough. A renovated squat, with connections to the punk vegan bar attached, it has an atmosphere of respectful free form egalitarianism. During my 8 day stay i routinely struck up fruitful conversations with hostel workers (some of which had been around since the squat conversion) and guests who all had lovely stories. Staff even helped fix my bike!


Very kind and helpfull staff!
