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

This place just opened very recently, it's very cool. It's very clean (both the rooms and the bathroom) and close to the city centre and all the awesome pubs. Free wifi and brekkie. Bring a map of Nijmegen and they'll mark some cool spots for you to visit. I loved my stay there - everyone is very relaxed and friendly... More

The hostel had only been open for a few weeks when I stayed, but it had already built up a good reputation for itself. Locals and former guests would come by to drink on the balcony terrace and hang out, which gave it a good vibe. I had a bit of trouble finding it (I didn’t have data roaming on... More

A brand new hostel right in the city center, close to central station, the beach and bus lines. By far one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in! The service was great, I arrived without having booked and they shuffled some things around for me so that I had a bed. Breakfast is very relaxed with self-service fruit, tostis,... More
