Saying "never stay here" would be an understatement. As an individual whos been staying in hostels for over 5 months all over Europe this has been by far the worst one Ive stayed in. Im aware that a hostel isnt a luxurious accomodation, however paying 5 extra euros for bedding supplies that ended up being a child sized sleeping bag and a few pieces of curtain fabric is outrageous. Theres no security, not even a lock on room doors. Id rather eat glass, than step foot in that prison again. Cheers.


It has great location just near Rotterdam central station, though it's a little bit difficult to find at the first time. Most of the staff are really nice to help you solve problems. Using locker needs 5 euros for deposit. Breakfast is very simple with toast, coffee and tee. They clean the shower rooms every day. By the way, in the end of January, it's terribly cold at night. If you don't want to pay for their linen and sheets, you had better bring yours.


You can stay in a more fun and more central place with betakfast included for only a few euros extra per night. This place os only the cheapest by a few euros and that is not worth the distance, lack of breakfast and middle-aged clientèle

Nice place to stay!!


Nice Hostel with a good atmosphere to recommend ... However the hostel ask for a fee of 5 euros if you want to rent a night kit (pillow, sheet ...), so if you can, bring it !


No wifi my entire stay, plastic gym mats for mattresses and lockers are 5€? I thought I was getting a deal but you have to spend another 5€ for sheets! So it's not really 12€ a night. They also put a exit sign in the dorm rooms which are extremely bright (I could literally read a book) spend a few extra euro and get a more comfortable place.


The location is near to the station and it was the best value for money hostel i could find in that location.
