This hostel was super dirty, showers were broken, the whole place was smelly, beds were dirty and uncomfortable. Second worst hostel I have stayed in. Only good thing about it was the location.


The staff is friendly. Family - like atmosphere, helfpull and kind, welcoming. The showers are of rather poor quality. Cold, and also it is very limited how it is being showered. The beds are many in one bigger room. But if you take this apart, you do have very nice breakfast available, dinner and lunch too, but you need to cook them /except breakfast/. The peope I met there were much worth it. I was happy there.


Avoid this hostel at all costs. I have stayed in many in my time and this is by far the dirtiest and most run down one to date. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting the woman who showed us around was unsure if they were clean or not she said she hadn't checked. No locks for lockers don't even think they worked the beds were disgusting and this "free food" everyone talks about is not worth it. Stay somewhere else and do not go through what we did


The hostel was disgusting! When you enter you see a mountain of dirty sheets and it was smelling awfull! The employee said that we could sit to eat but all the tables were filthy and covered with jam. The toilets were disgusting as well and when we returned at night we saw water on the floor from the bathroom all the way to the stairs. In the dormitory the blanket was dirty and I found hair on my sheets. Too expensive for nothing, a lot of noise at night and cold in the room. Avoid it!

sorry that you dewidn t like it the sheets in the corridor were ready to bring it to the laundry room. the breakfast table was not clean at this moment because a group of 27 people had just taken breakfast. if you had waited 10 minutes our cleaning crew was ready to clean the table you are always welcome


The shower didn't work and the room had no window. The toilett on the floor was horrible. Okay if you are here for a party trip

I really enjoyed staying here. It was unusual in that there aware cupboards and fridges full of food and ingredients and you just cook what you want. The rooms are very basic. Staff are really friendly!


The staff has recently changed. From very unfriendly to extremely kind. But the hygiene is a problem. The bed linen are smelly. They seem to be washed on too low temperatures.


THe Hosts at B&B are accomidating. Everyone understands english very well. Food, coffee, and tea included in price. Good location to everything...except near central transit station for trains. I recommend the free tour of Utrecht, there are pamplets at the reception desk, starts at noon til three pm. Good tour guides. I'll stay there again
