Really nice old building. Good showers, comfy bed, spacious room, quiet street. The kitchen is closed too early with no sense. There was not a hostel atmosphere, everybody was stucked with their computers. WiFi works great, the room and hostel was clean. They have huge lockers downstairs. Very nice neighborhood and street. It's a little bit far from the train station if you go with a backpack. The directions to get to the hostel were excellent. I'd choose again this hostel.


Really nice hostel, they have great space for relaxing inside and outside. The guy was super nice, giving us tea and coffee when we arrived. Rooms okay (lockers in basement) and bathrooms and showers great. Average age of the guests was quite a bit older compared to other hostels we had stayed in.


A nice, clean hostel right in the middle of the city. All basics covered. The only thing I did not like is that the main area is set up as a closed Cafe, with tables and chairs and an uncomfortable couch. There is very little friendly atmosphere in that area as it feels like a library. The garden is fantastic though. Don't come here if you're looking for a party hostel.


Cool hostel located within a hip area of Utrecht. Staff are really laid back. Only downside is that your bag locker is located outside of your room down in the basement.

I really liked this place. The staff was friendly and the common area actually was comfortable. I met a lot of really interesting people from all over the globe. We talked, went out for some beers, played guitar, it was rad. Next time I'm in Utrecht I'm staying here again. Only complaint is the beds are really small and the top bunks have no guard rails, but you can ask for a bottom bed if you want.


Relaxed staff and nice garden. Location is brilliant.


Great location and nice backpackers hostel. Everyone was friendly and chatty. Nice to be welcomed with a drink and a chair during check in! Also good to have hand towels in the bathrooms and get free bath towels. The garden is also very pretty and a quiet place to sit and the wifi works in the bedroom. V near to main attractions too.


Awesome hostel, awesome ciy !

Nice hostel with a lovely garden. Had to wait 5 minutea at check-in and they offered me a coffee. I didn't like the small beds and that the lockers are downstairs. Also there was no place to put your stuff next to the bed or a electricity outlet to charge the phone. Breakfast is 6 Euros and worth it, especially if you drink a lot of coffee in the morning. I can recommend it.


The relatively low score on staff is due to a difference in the very brief encounters I had in my short stay: One of the staff came across as absolutely excellent. The second morning I had to catch a bus 8:25 I think it was - and when I came down at 8:00 there was neither breakfast nor staff, but several other guests waiting. When this other person arrived and I asked for the breakfast, instead of getting the breakfast on the table, he started checking out whether I had actually ordered.
