    I had a great one-night stay at the Sparks Hostel. I really like the bunk design so that you feel like you have your own closed-off space, and the personal cabinets were nice and large. The bathroom for my room was clean, the towel good quality, and I appreciated the privacy of having one bathroom per room instead of a group bathroom (despite a little waiting -- it's a good trade-off). It would be nice if they provided locks for the lockers. Great location in Rotterdam.

    I had a pleasant stay. The staffs were friendly and the communal area was suitable for both work and socializing. The only drawback was that the bedroom wasn’t soundproof, so you’d hear trams and cars all night long. Despite that, the bed was comfortable and private.

    Great hostel. However, the ceiling is way too close to the top bunks. There's a disproportionate amount of space in the lower bunks compared to the top ones. As a taller person I hit my head on the ceiling multiple times even when being mindful of it while climbing the stairs to my bunk (not even at bunk height yet). The hostel seems to compound the issue by sleeping taller travelers in the top bunks. They really should be assigning bunks as people check in to mitigate the issue.

    I was here for an overnight stay in Rotterdam. The hostel very close to the train station which is very handy (about a 5 minute walk). The check-in process was fairly simple and the staff were pleasant. The bed in the room is very comfortable. If I'm ever in Rotterdam again I would consider staying here again.
