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.

Strowis Hostel is the best Hostel in Utrecht! The staff is great! Very friendly, helpful and chatty! Their coffee + hot chocolate is delicious and so is there breakfast buffet. A bit small but for 6 euros pretty nice! We stayed in a double room, which had only 2 separate single beds, but those were comfy. The walls are very... More

Strowis is a really nice place. The staff were very friendly, and offered me a drink on the house when I checked in! I took one of the private rooms on the ground floor - it had an extraordinarily high ceiling and large window, very impressive. My only problem during my stay was the pillow on my bed was extremely... More

This is Hostel is very cozy, clean and staff is helpful. For 6€ you can have breakfast which is quite nice, with fruits, yogurts, boiled eggs, bread, jam, butter, coffee.... it is good. Has internet access, however, I had trouble accessing it, since I am a student I used the Eduroam service available. Loved it!

This is a cool, chilled out hostel. It's annoying that breakfast isn't included but with access to the small kitchen area, you can make your own. We stayed in a large dorm (4) and apart from someone awful snoring, everything was fine. It has a cool, rustic edge to it and we really enjoyed staying here. We arranged for a... More

Beautiful building and stayed in Room 4 which is a dorm. There were 11 of us on a Music tour in Utrecht and Rotterdam and this was a fantastic base for us. Everybody was so welcoming and helpful and it is a cool place to hang out. It's in a great location so you can walk to everything including the... More

Stayed in private room. Quiet hostel (that's a plus for me :-)) Room good, nice lounge / dining room, reasonable breakfast, friendly staff, great central Utrecht location. Happy to recommend for anyone not looking for a 24 hour party.

The hostel has a really nice common area, bar and lovely garden with some unique plants. I stayed in one of the big dorms and it was spacious, but beds are a bit small and there isn't a ladder to reach the top bed, which can be a problem. The hostel is very clean and the breakfast is good. The... More
