I stayed here four nights while on a walking holiday. The staff is friendly and helpful staff, the hostel is convenient to city center and public transportation. WIFI is free and fast and there is also a computer for guests in the lobby. Special price dinner for guests.

The location is very good, walking distance from the city center. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. They also have a safe place to park your bike. However, the shared toilet and bathroom facility is not so good. The shower was broken. It is OK to stay for a night.

this hostel is "value for money". there is nothing cheaper in Groningen, so basically you have no other choice, but stay here. Overall, it is not so bad. Mostly students stay here. Wi-fi is available for free. Showers and toilets are OK. Beds themselves are OK, but bed sheets are really bad and they cost extra, so it is better... More

There are three dorms in total and I stayed in dorm 2. Dorm 2 had 10 comfortable bunkbeds. Toilets are opposite the dorms and showers are downstairs, all functional and clean. You can drink a beer in the cafe downstairs and have a proper breakfast for €5. On the one side of the dorm is a window, although there's a... More

Okay, I'm not sure how representative this review is, please consider the following: - I spent only one night at the place (went to cinema with a friend and didn't feel like driving all the way back to my home). It was on a thursday. I arrived late (at 23:30) and left early (07:30) and didn't book breakfast. I found... More

They gave me a room I did not book and charged me more. When I pointed out that the room was not what I had confirmed, they just rudely said "This room is better, its bigger." No apologies. It`s hard to find this place too as it`s like, behind the brick walled building. They have no sign outside clearly stating... More
