    Must must visit. It is very serene and an experience of a lifetime. ❤️ It was only me and another girl in the hostel the day I stayed and both of us had our own individual dorms, and in a place like Giethoorn, you will really appreciate the silence.

    Hands down one of the best places I've stayed at! This hostel definitely feels more like a community than a business, which I really appreciated. The staff is lovely and easygoing, and the hostel has such a beautiful garden! The free breakfast was great too. Would recommend this place to everyone!

    I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The breakfast was nice and the facilities were good for the price. I found the staff lovely there, especially Heya, and I enjoyed chatting with them. They were friendly and were happy for me to store my luggage for a few hours after I had checked out. The hostel is also in a lovely location in Giethoorn and the views are beautiful. The only thing I would say is to follow the directions from the hostel rather than google maps as it took me the longer way.
