First time staying in a hostel, and the experience was very positive. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Was also a good place to meet like minded travelers. MY friend and I stayed in an 8 person mixed dorm, where the beds were clean and adequate, and were also room curtains so you didnt wake up with the sun.... More

As a lone traveller when I book into a hostel I'm looking to meet people. That's the most important thing about staying in Hostels for me and in that regard Strowis is great. A really nice garden where people chill in the evening, a reasonable bar and comfortable lounge area mean there is always people in the hostel to chat... More

Our experience at Strowis was mostly positive. Friendly staff, comfortable common areas and back garden to relax in, clean rooms, family friendly while maintaining a youthful backpacker vitality. My one complaint would be the noise from the late-nighters if you are staying in the private street-level room. I was awakened at 1am, 3am even 5am and every hour in between.... More

Strowis is definitely the place you have to stay while in Utrecht! We were staying in a private room which was very comfortable, big enough and very clean as well as toilets and showers. Common areas are cosy and nice, what we loved the most is green garden area, a perfect spot to relax and have a beer after a... More

This is the only place to stay in Utrecht. Wonderful staff, relaxed atmosphere, good rooms, free wifi, a lounge area, kitchen, bike rental, lockers, the list goes on... It's also not far from Utrecht central train station, and the staff are only too happy to suggest things to do, and places to see. Thank you Strowis, I'll be back!

very nice staff, very clean hostel, we loved the fact that they offered breakfast and towels as well. the staff was knowledgable about the area and printed out pages for us, because we had trouble with our app download. we could park our bikes and walk into the old downtown very easily. We came by bike (mom, dad and two... More

Not a party hostel, peaceful , I could have stayed for weeks here. Made me wish I was unemployed and a writer , poet or something. It has a garden, the staff were so friendly and helped me plan journeys. I staed in the top room with my son - room 10.

I stayed two nights with my girlfriend in the private twin room. The atmosphere is fantastic and the facilities are great. The place has awesome personality and so do the staff. I highly recommend you stay here if you want more than just a bed to sleep in. The breakfast is well worth the low price. Thanks for making our... More

Staff were discriminatory and sometimes very rude. Depends which staff member served you. Showers were of the push button variety, usually seen on campsites.No lockers in dorm rooms, and top bunks had no barrier to prevent you falling out. I have stayed in far better hostels in the Netherlands, then this one.
