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!

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.

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!
