It is in a good position to walk into the center of the city. However 3 of the showers were out of order. For a room with 48 people in it, it would be nice if there was a window open or fresh air somewhere. It would also have been nice if the floor to ceiling windows were covered by more than a poster. The outside world can look in! The breakfast has to have been worst I have ever seen. 2 loafs of bread some pots of jam, a coffee flask and tea flask and powdered milk?!? They spent maximum 10€

No locks for the rooms, cold showers in the early morning, take great care if you are given the EXACT bed you're supposed to have or you'll have to search for your stuff once you'll be back from visiting. It's notnot always explained but you have to pays more for cover and bed stuff... And sometimes they will forget to put the tea bag in the tea for the morning. And no milk, of course

I brought my own sheets but no blanket or pillow. They still charged me full price to rent these items even though it saved them washing. The next day a girl informed me they just gave them to her for free. They charge a ridiculous deposit for EVERYTHING, bikes, lockers, etc so make sure you have plenty of cash. The shower is freezing. The emergency exit lights make the room like daytime at night. The beds make so much noise and are uncomfortable. Worst hostel I have stayed at in 2 months.

Very reasonable price - especially during weekends in Holland. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Close proximity (5-10 mins walk) to Rotterdam Centraal station. All lockers were either occupied or broken. 48 beds in one room was... Interesting... Breakfast was mediocre at best. Overall, I had a good experience at hostel De Mafkees.

First time in a so big dorm (48 beds), I did not sleep very well, a lot of noise, light. The shower and washroom were not very convenient.

The hostel is horrible, terrible atmosphere, sleeping with 60 people is a consequence of terrible and noisy night, you have to share the shower with both man and woman, wicg you dont feel secure. It is a complete dirt place as well as the breakfast. I would never return and the money doesnt fit with the time of place, eventhough it is cheap. I dont recommend to anyone!

This was likely the worst hostel I have ever seen. They charged 5 euros for linen which was like tissue paper. The bed itself was not at all comfortable. They also made everyone wear wristbands instead of just giving everybody a key. The building itself felt like an abandoned office building because it clearly was. There were very few power points anywhere in the place and the wi-fi was rubbish. The staff were also rude. The only good thing I can say about it is that it was entirely filthy.

We stayed for two nights and it was pretty good. Really close to the train station and the kitchen and bathroom facilities were quite good. Staying in a 24 person room I expected it to be loud and hard to sleep but it was surprisingly quiet except for the squeaky mattresses! All in all a good hostel for a quick stopover.

This place is nothing special and felt a bit like summer camp, but you can't beat the price. If you're not looking for luxury and you are on a budget, try it out!

I couldn't find tea for breakfast, would be great. But you are all amazing. I am definitely recommending it to other people

The experience of a room which sleeps 48 was out of this world! One dude puked off the side of the top bunk which was a show in itself, and the beds are squeaky so get prepared to wake up the rest of the room. Dope fridges and a nice staff right by the train station (7 minutes or so). Best bang for your buck, highly recommended

It is an OK place for the money you pay, but my room was the worst one...people at night playing in the living room was super noisy and you could hear everything, there is no plugs enough and the room was really ugly. The staff was really nice so this helps.

Fans are needed in the common room for when it gets hot.

Great hostel! Had to pay for sheets but it was so hot I didn't need a blanket, and the price made up for it. Showers were a bit broken but had hot water (let it run for a bit). Full kitchen, breakfast was minimal, but nice staff and friendly environment

Near the main train station, withing walking distance from center, cozy common area, cheap. My only complaints are lack of wall plugs in the dorms and I had to take locker from the other side of the building as all of them in my room were taken.

This place is nice given the fact that it's within a waliking distance to Rotterdam Centraal. The staff is friendly too. I like it! ;)
