I only stayed one night but it's an okay place to stay. + Staff is composed of nice people. + 1-2 minutes to city center. + 8-9 minutes to central train station. + The place is clean. - The lockers are in the basement and there are no lockers in the room. You have to keep going up and down.... More

Clean hostel though very old needing renovation. It has a bar downstairs as usual, thousands of stairs as usual, breakfast horribly expensive as usual and shared rooms with shared bathrooms (girls and boys mixed) as usual. Nevertheless tha quality of sleep is good and sheets are clean. Pay attention about the mean and miserable detail after having pais 23€ per... More

I've spend in Strowis almost 2 months and I can say it's the best hostel I've been living in as so far. Conditions are fine, the hostel is cleaned up every day and prices are ok. But the most important thing is really nice and friendly atmosphere made by people working there. I recomend that place to anyone visiting Utrecht... More

Lovely hostel, wonderful location. Initially built for a noble cause. Was offered a drink upon arrival, which was very sweet of them. The showers take a while to warm up, so do not panic when they initially come out cold as it will heat up soon enough. Very nice and cozy common area with friendly hostel / bar staff. The... More

This hostel is great. The staff are really accommodating. They let me lock my bike in the back garden, made me a cup of tea on arrival, and knew loads about the town. Lovely bohemian atmosphere, really clean and there's an acoustic guitar you can play!

Strowis Hostel is really nice. I stayed here two times. We've got number code so we don't need to knock on the door, waking up the staff, all we do just input the code. We have free blanket and need to take it again to concierge desk. Really nearby Centrum and only approximately 15 minutes walking distance to Hogg Catharijn... More

I can say that Strowis went above and beyond my expectations for a hostel. Highlights from my stay include: wonderful common area with ethical and fairly priced food/drink, great laundry facilities, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable and clean rooms, and a gorgeous backyard garden with a summer concert series. The staff are friendly, incredibly helpful, proficient in many languages, and did everything... More

I had the privilege of staying in Strowis for about a month in August and September and it was wonderful. The staff are sweet, kind and willing to help you with anything you need. The lounge is lovely for eating, drinking, studying and hanging out. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay with great service, Strowis is the... More

I have been going to Utrecht every fall for several years now. The first year I stayed at an overpriced and overrated hotel and was not happy with the fact I couldnt make my own coffee and also was not happy with the price. Finally, several years ago, I found Strowis. This place is so fantastic. I especially LOVE their... More

I stayed at Strowis for almost a month, and it was my second long stay there. The people that work there are extremely friendly, helpful and genuine. The rooms were nice and comfortable, the garden is beautiful, and even the diverse group of people that stay there tend to create a community atmosphere. It is a very cozy atmosphere and... More
