Overview

Hostel De Mafkees is a low-cost, friendly accommodation option aimed at international students and young backpackers. We're popular for our big common rooms, and you can also mix with other travellers in our bar. Our chatty staff are the heart and soul of our hostel: ask at the 24-hour reception where to start in the city and they'll give you a handy map and bike rental info. The free breakfast we put on is a great way to cut your travel costs, and you can check out top tips on making your budget go even further in Rotterdam with our free Wi-Fi.

Location

We're a 9-minute walk from Rotterdam Centraal Station, so we're right in the middle of everything. The Cube House and museum is a 19-minute stroll away if you're into cutting-edge architecture, and the Market Hall is about the same distance away for stalls selling tasty local produce. Coming in via Rotterdam The Hague Airport? Catch bus 33 from there to the Rotterdam Centraal Uitstaphalte, which takes about 20 minutes, and then walk for quarter of an hour.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll stay in a mixed dorm at Hostel de Mafkees. Linen's not included, but you can rent ours (€5 euros all in) or pack your own sleeping bag. Bathrooms are shared, and you'll have your own locker for storing your essentials.

Extras and activities

Enjoy a good read? Make the most of our mini library. When you're feeling sociable, get a competition going on our games room's foosball or ping-pong tables. We've got an outdoor terrace that's great for sunny get-togethers and a kitchen for cooking side by side with your new backpacking mates. We organise events like city tours or trips to the beaches in Zeeland, so make sure to check in with us about what's happening while you're here.

    There was a mosquito stuck in our dorm, that bit me and i couldn't kill it in the night. But having lockers was really usefull. And if you think about the price you can't get anything better for € 12.50. There was warm water in the shower. The kitchen was well equiped and had an induction cooker top. The bathrooms were cleaned once or twice daily. It was close to the city center and station. If you're a person who can't stand being with room mates 0-24 this isn't for you. It was perfect for me.

    The atmosphere of this hostel is very social and friendly as everyone we met there were friendly to talk to (including the staff). We stayed for 2 nights and the wifi was down the entire time which was unfortunate but the free table tennis, darts and table soccer was great for passing time. The common area is busy all night (until about 1am) with people drinking and playing games but it’s not too noisy from the dorm rooms. Overall me and my two friends had a great time and had no real complaints

    The hostel has a great young vibe. They offer free breakfast which was a nice surprise! The rooms are okay though the doors don't have a lock so anyone can get in. The showers are a bit annoying because you have to keep a button pressed for water to come out.

    Está muy bien ubicado, se llega caminando desde la estación central de trenes. Creo el servicio es caro en relación a otros hostel, pero anda bien el ambiente y el personal super amable.

    There were so many mosquitos in the room! I was bitten several times. I couldn't even shower because I can see so many mosquitos in the bathroom. Atmosphere was amazing and so is the breakfast. Kind of disappointed that you'd have to pay for linen.

    The cheapest hostel in Rotterdam but thats the only good thing about it. Beds were very uncomfortable. Toilets were limited. Definitely not a woman friendly hostel. The people and other hostel residents who came in were creepy. There was a scary feeling to the place.
