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.

Very good hostel for that price they have. Very close to the train station which is good. Clean and nice staff.

The beds are literally one next to the other... this is nice if you are very tired or if you like to hear the breathing of your neighbor. Getting plastic cased mattresses is not the most desirable, specially because they are a bit noisy with your movement. The sheets have an extra fee unless you bring your owns or sleeping bag (I found this is a good idea). Despite of all this I keep good memories of the place: it is cool, big, clean, nice staff, non-stop music environment, ...

The bed was cheap but for what you got for yout money it is definitely worth spending a wee bit more to get a better hostel. I also felt very ripped off having to spend 5 euros for bedding for one night. It is close to the station but is in one of the not so nice areas of Rotterdam.

This is a really basic hostel - quite cheap but not a bargain, you really get what you pay for. Don't expect much and you'll enjoy your stay here. Staff is nice and there's a good supermarket close. Walking distance to the center is very acceptable (better, rent a bike at the hostel! great way to explore the city). Only one toilet for each gender, and only one shower room for all. Could be cleaner. breakfast is basic but good. Very few plug sockets, only in the common room in one corner.

Great price after staying in overpriced Amsterdam.

Poor breakfast, we would appreciate wider choice (at least some ham or cheese would be nice).
