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

It is a Hostel, so you can't expect Hotel services... shared bathrooms, rooms with many beds and tiny ones, and several stairs... yet, clean, friendly staff. free wifi. Breakfast was ok including espresso or capuccino...and a small nice garden. It is very well located, just a few minutes walk from the Cathedral and the main square and pedestrian streets. About...

I booked a single room, my room was on the top floor, simple but comfortable room. My needs were met. I asked the staff for some advice on where to go in Utrech and... More

Nice people, nice rooms, nice music, nice garden outside. Going to Utrecht? Check this place, and you'll really enjoy the city. Near to the city centre, the staff is really friendly and ready to help you. Atmosphere is great to chill and share experiences with others guests.

Cheap place to stay in central Utrecht. Only a 10min walk from the cathedral. Beautiful garden and eating areas. Stayed in a private twin room. Nice room with plenty of space on 2nd floor. Walls are quite thin and can hear quite a lot through them but we were on a cycle toruing holiday so slept through. Showers and toilets... More
