    I met some really cool people here, the kitchen is big a lovely, the atmosphere while i was here was super amazing. Location is sweet if youre into drinking and partying, but if not the location is still pretty central. Although our door key wouldnt open our door, so we either had to get one of the staff to open it or wake up someone who was sleeping in the room which was a bit s***, but the staff couldn't help this. great for solo travellers

    Beautiful hostel with an amazing kitchen. The staff were all super friendly and helpful. My friend and I had to cancel one of our nights stay last minute, due to train strikes and the staff were very accommodating. It was a safe and fun atmosphere and we really enjoyed our stay! Thank you King Kong Hostel!

    A great hostel, in a street full of bars. The one downside was the heat of the rooms - fans had to be on full blast all day just to cool them down.

    Lovely, clean and welcoming place! Furthermore, the hostel is located in one of the more busy streets in the center which also means that even around midnight in the weekend (when I was there in September) the streets are buzzing with nightlife. So, sleeping early and soundly is not guaranteed there ;)

    Really lovely hostel. The only bad thing about the stay was the pub across the road. It was incredibly noisy until 3am most nights. This means if your room is road side you do not get very good sleep until the pub closes. However, if you accomodate this by sleeping in or simply don’t require that much sleep, would highly recommend

    Easy straight forward check in, a deposit is required to secure the key fob which is refundable on return. The deluxe beds are worth paying the extra for. Free coffee in the morning, no breakfast available unless you bring your own. Would recommend and I'd stay again when in Rotterdam.

    Facilities were alright except for the rooms which sucked. Couldn't really sleep as there was a club next door that went til like 3am every night and had to open the window because there was no AC. I fully expected this, except the hostel didn't really have any social atmosphere (most if not all people at the bar were students/ locals) so it was hard to partake in if you're looking to have fun. Staff pretty much carried this review (they were great)

    Not as good as the reviews say. The room and bar area was boiling hot so that kind of turned us off from this hostel. Next to no atmosphere when we were there either — people on computers and keeping to themselves. Not a bad hostel, but I’ve been to better.
