I stayed in Barbarossa Hostel for 3 night. Each night extending my stay. Great location. Better than all the other hotels. Joep is also a great host that dedicated his time to listen to my wishes and come up with good suggestions. The hostel has a communal area where I could get some work down. The city of Nimijgen was... More

Staying at the Barbarossa Hostel was a great experience. Everything was so clean and organized. Joep is a wonderful host, always doing the best effort to help the costumers. Despite the facility is a Hostel, it really feels like home. All the decorations are very cozy and homey. The place is very well located in the city center, close to... More

Such a great find - we stayed here on a mini European road trip and parked in the multi storey car park one street over. A great welcome from Joep with lots of helpful advice of what to see and do around Nijmegen. Room was great value and the hostel has a lovely atmosphere. We'll definitely be going back!

We stayed one night here and we're lucky to find space as we did not have the planning to book ahead. At the reception we were given loads of wonderful local advice on where to eat and drink, what sights to enjoy. The staff really went beyond the basics to provide us with a great stay in Nijmegen!

Barbarossa was a great place to stay. I met a lot of people even though it was a small hostel. The breakfast was a bonus and the size of the rooms too. Not crowded at all. Loved the patio too! I want to go back!

I stayed here with 2 friends during the 4daagse festival earlier this month. We stayed here for the week and we all have nothing but good things to say about this place. The hostel owner is knowledgable about the local area and local events and informed us of everything that was going on in the town during the festivities. The... More

I stayed in this hostel for three nights during a conference. It is in a great location, and is very relaxed with an excellent vibe. It is also very clean and the staff are helpful. The breakfast was substantial, including fruits, juice, toast, ham, cheese, cereal, milk, coffee, tee. You can actually make coffee and take a piece of fruit... More

Had to stay here for a few days till my rented apartment was ready to move in. Overall I found the stay extremely comfortable and the service absolutely exceptional which is why I would strongly recommend this lovely place. In terms of location it is right at the centre of the city and accessible by local transport. The housing is... More

I've only stayed here for one night and had to catch an early morning plane. As it was a little hard to find i made a phone call and met one of the employees in the street. I stayed in the 5 bed dorm that had beds that were so fantastically soft and fluffy that i fell asleep immediately. When... More
