Property Description

People might call me different, but I think that makes me, me. I'm a local boutique hostel. Somewhere in between a 5-star hotel and laid-back hostel.
I'm a place to eat, drink, sleep and meet in Haarlem, The Netherlands.

All my rooms have a private shower, some share a toilet. Don't worry the toilet won't be more than a step away. I will make sure your bed is ready made when you arrive.

I'm located in the Burgwal Neighborhood in the city center, across the water from the Teylers Museum and the central square, the Grote Markt. I'm a 10 minute walk from Haarlem station, 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam and a 30 minute bike ride to my national park and the beaches Zandvoort and Bloemendaal.

Now you could call me old fashion as I enjoy to meet people, play a game or read a book. That's why I left out tv's and Wifi in my 21 rooms. Don't worry there's free WiFi available in my cafe for you internet addicts. I have a place where you can store your bikes.
I also have a guest pantry with all you might need like a microwave, fridge, hairdryer, iron and a water boiler to make your own coffee / tea if you like.

Shopping, a night out or spending time at the beach or in the national park?
My check- in time is at 15:00 but I would love to meet you earlier so you can drop off your bags and I can tell you everything my city has to offer.

The prices excludes the E3,25 tourist tax, per person, per night. The tourist tax needs to be paid upon arrival. My local breakfast is not included in the price. If you have an appetite I can make you breakfast, lunch or a local snack, check my menu and daily specials.

My reception is open between 07:30 - 23:00. If you are arriving/departing at other hours please let me know in advance. Don't worry there's always someone present.

WARNING: My people might make you feel too much at ease. My apologies upfront.

I loved my time at Hello I’m Local. The staff were very friendly and hospitable, giving great recommendations around the town! The location was clean, the beds were nice and the common space is very cute. The hostel is a very relaxed atmosphere, so it’s a great get away for those looking to recharge. Also loved the mini stroopwafels they serve with the coffees (and coffee candies at the reception!) Would easily re-book!

This is a great hostel for a good nights rest. The beds are super comfy, rooms are clean and the staff are so friendly. It’s a bit of a walk to/from the train station but the location of the hostel is really picturesque with the typical Dutch streets and canals. Just ensure you have a shower before 10am as there didn’t seem to be any hot water after that time, cold showers are not the best! All in all I would recommend and I’d definitely stay here again!
