    The staff here was lovely and I immediately felt welcome. The atmosphere is cozy and nicely decorated while also creating a bit of a social vibe. The beds and rooms were always clean and had a nice touch of privacy with bed side lamps and a charging port. The location was perfect, in the middle of everything you could want in the city and the beds were soooo comfortable. I would definitely stay again. Thank you for.a great stay!

    By far one of my favorite hostels. Love the bunkbeds with stairs! The whole set up was really great. Nice big lockers, a little cubby for my stuff next to the bed. It's super close to the train station which is awesome. My only complaint was that the shower didn't drain and I accidentally flooded the bathroom floor.

    It is quiet the place to stay in Rotterdam if you just happen to be passing by for a day, or if you stay longer periods. You find people from various age groups and backgrounds who are mostly social and up for a chit chat. The place is well maintained and the staff is very professional. Despite being very well equipped, the only thing that lacks are washing machines.

    Sparks hostel is a beautiful, modern hostel with a perfect balance between privacy (pretty closed of bunk beds), safety (lockers) and social living. The personnel is friendly and the atmosphere in the hostel is just the same. You can't pass by the living area without having a nice conversation. Its the perfect place to make friends.

    Great Hostel in the middle of Rotterdam. Not super social, but there's people to meet for sure. Beds are incredibly comfortable, and rooms are very clean. Good location, and great amenities.

    The location is great and the room was really clean and comfortable, a lot of space and privacy for each person and many electrical outlets. Equipped kitchen and nice sitting area, and the staff was very nice. The downside was that there wasn't quiet time at night, people kept shutting doors and talking loudly in the hallways and you can hear it very loudly inside the room so it woke me up a few times every night (also there were girls checking into the room very late at night).

    The rooms were really nice and spacious with comfy beds and a lot of space for storage. The kitchen was good and the staff were nice. You get a free towel which is always good and the people staying there were pleasant enough.
