It's a nice place. I disliked how the kitchen was off limits until after 6pm. Also instead of the advertised pub crawl, a DJ was brought into the hangout area and tons of locals showed up.
More like a Cafe/Bar where you can sleep than a real Hostel. Staff is friendly but really focused on the customers of the cafe that probably bring more money. Rooms where very nice and clean.
The hostel was very welcoming and had a very homely feel to it. We met lots of other people whilst stayin here and enjoyed hanging out cooking and in the movie lounge! The staff were really nice and helpful. The rooms were good, beds average but good storage and space. Shower was awesome.
I stayed one night and even if the street was really nice, I had a poor stay. The lamp wasn't working for my bed. Guests kept coming in and out of the room during the whole night, making it hard to sleep. One guest even started packing at 4.00am and then just stay on his bed listening to music. Some drunk guests were also harrassing two poor French girls who barely spoke English. The front door wasn't working even with the key. When I wanted to order a beer, the waitress acted upset and rude.
Very nice hostel !! Better than several hotels I have stayed in

By far the best hostel we have seen - the large dorm area was divided so it didn't seem as big, there were tons of great themes going on (paintings, workout stuff, king kong-themed gear) that made the stay the best it could be. Location isn't too far from the main station so walking was easy, and the street its on is pretty trendy so there is plenty to keep you occupied right out the door. highly recommend this hostel
the best ever dorm i have stayed.valued for money
Had a great 2 night stay at the King Kong hostel. The staff were terrific and the hostel's location is great. Only complaint would be that there were no basins in the WC of the shared room I stayed in, only in the shower. This meant a trip to both rooms every time you went to the bathroom. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay, kitchen facilities and lounge area were also great.
Very nice location, on a street with lots of restaurants and close to a metro station. Could get loud until very late though, earplugs would help. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are nice and spacious and the lockers under the bed were nice and huge, but you have to bring your own lock, or buy one.

Had a great stay at King Kong. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The smaller dorms are such high quality they're practically hotel rooms. The kitchen isn't available to guests until the evening, but that can be worked around no problem. The hostel is perfectly located and I'd definitely recommend it.
one of the best hostel i have been to. If the price would have been a little less I would have given it 100% rating.
Really great hostel, very new, 10 minute walk from a huge shopping center. We felt very safe and the rooms were great.
Ive stayed in quite a few hostels now and this is by far the best one I've stayed in. The place looks clean, tidy AND cool, has great staff, the rooms are nice and it even has a comfy movie area where you can watch Netflix (The guys there even gave us free popcorn!!) It's also in a great area about 15 mins walk from central station near loads of restaurants and a couple of coffeeshops too if you're into that. Definitely stay here if you're in Rotterdam no doubt about it!
No surprises it's #1 in Holland. Location was perfect for night life and great restaurants(bazar). That clean you could eat off the floor, great coffee, nice movie room/cave/dungeon and above all the staff are what set this hostel apart from the rest. Besides all being extremely attractive they were so helpful and very professional. A+ King Kong !!!
It's a good hostel for people who travel the world. Very cleaning and perfect facilities,so good experience to live at here. breakfast need to pay
The best thing about this hostel is it's location, in the middle of a street with several bars and restaurants, in the heart of Rotterdam. The staff is very helpful and one of them even speaks portuguese (sorry don't remember his name). Great atmosphere, great bar and kitchen for the guests. Hope to stay there again if I can.
The pillow was terrible! I did mention this to the staff and they said they would pass on the message.
Very clean and amazing staff. Great location in the middle of a busy street and not far from the train station!
