    I have stayed in many hostels all over Europe and this by far the best hostel experience I have ever had. Hostel perfectly located amongst the city and bars. Equipped with kitchen, laundry, chill out room, bar - everything you could possibly need. What really made this stay great was the staff, incredibly welcoming, cheerful and helpful at every stage of our stay. If your staying in Rotterdam, don’t be an idiot - book your stay at King Kong hostel and have a great time. :)

    I'm glad I chose this hostel. It was on the top of the list and I quickly booked it and I am more than happy I stayed here. Reception is open 24/7, they also serve drinks for public so the entrance area is very cosy and welcoming to spend some time. Rooms & showers are clean and warm. Location is ideal - the street has lots to offer from pubs, cafes to galleries, but there is no loud noise anyway which was great. :)

    The hostel is in a very good location! Staff was super friendly. As there were no doors in the dorms, it was unfortunately very noisy at night.

    Great palace, 12 minutes easy walk from Central train station + close by (5-7 minutes Walking distance) from some of the recommended museums. Nice bar, friendly staff. Only one thing missing : a regular and working computer. There is one available at the lobby for the guests but it needs to be repaired/fixed. Apart from that : recommended place !

    The Hostel is situated right in the party street of Rotterdam. If you should have any intentions on sleeping berfore 3am, I'd strongly recommend choosing a different hostel as the windows and walls offer absolutely no sound insulation. If you like partying and don't want to go far, this is the place for you, as the hostel's bar has a broad variety of drinks and is open to the public as well. That aside, the rooms were clean, the lockers offered enough space and the staff was friendly.
