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.

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).

Showers and bathroom were dirty and this is an old school so very few power plugs and rooms were extremely hot during the nights and mattresses were disgusting. free breakfast was toast and coffee.

Location was easy to find, close to the Central Station, the staff was quite friendly! The atmosphere was not bad, but kind of dull - it is a small hostel though not overfilled with people. The toilet was clean, but the dorm beds were old/used - extremely hot and bad air-circulation. All in all okay, what you would get for a cheap price. Plus: breakfast, good coffee and tea!

I would recommend taking earplugs with you if you go stay at De Mafkees because the rooms are very big and therefore easily noisy. Also check whether you're not to close to the emergency exit sign because that generates a lot of light. Other than that the hostel is okay to stay in. Do keep in mind that the staf only speaks English, not Dutch.

No TV! And limited internet (one PC only, no matter how many guests!)

Met some great people, staff was relaxed. First night some guy peed in the corner of our dorm, third night about 8 ppl were robbed. Security of the hostel appalling and the way staff handled the situation while it happened was a joke. We had a good time though, thanks to the people we met. Short descr: free lockers, metal beds, bunkbeads, plastic matrasses, sheets for hire for €1, complete linnen set w. pillow €5, fridge, pool table
