From the reviews I read, my expectations were fairly low, which made it quite easy for Strowis to exceed them. I wasn't looking forward to the fact that there were two toilets per room, a shortage of electrical outlets in the room, or that the lockers were in the basement. Perhaps it helped that I was on the first floor,... More

friendly, cute, cozy, nice atmosphere, style, music, everything was perfect!! the only bad thing is that the lockers are two floors at least away from the rooms and this is not convenient when you need security for your stuff

I loved my stay here, was offered a hot drink on arrival and staff did their utmost to help with all of my questions. Great location and interesting history of the building, will definitely come again!

This is a nice place to stay with a decent breakfast that is not included and vegan if I remember correctly. Interesting building with character and comfortable spaces inside and out. Relatively quiet as hostels go. Beds in the shared dorms were on the hard side. Good location, easy walk to the train station or the center.

I stayed at Strowis hostel in Jan 2014 for business. I had a private room with ensuite bathroom. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a number of requests and they did their best to help. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of choice (continental). My only issue was that the room faced the street and was... More

We arrived at the hostel and we were greeted with a smile and the offer of a cup of coffee. We had a private room with a shared bathroom. There were 2 on the floor and 3 showers. The room was clean and warm. It was perfect for what we needed. The staff were friendly and even helped me print... More

Me and my friend decided to stay at this hostel for some days to explore Utrecht and the surrounding area. It was easy to get to from Utrecht Station, only 5-10 minutes bus or 15-20 minutes by walk. The staff was so friendly, they spoke perfect English, they were helpful, talkative and funny. The cost is very low, you can... More

We were welcomed to our stay with a free coffee and a welcoming reception. Our room was large with good wi-fi signal. The kitchen had all necessary utilities and we were even allowed to bring our own drinks in even though they sold drinks there also. The price was reasonable and the location was excellent, within walking distance of anywhere... More

This hostel advertises as low priced. In fact, they charge 20 euros for beds in big noisy rooms. I believe hostels should have low prices since they offer the most basic accommodations and this hostel ownership/management takes advantage of the fact there is only one other hostel in utrecht and they both charge the same prices, can you say PRICE...

We stayed over for two nights. The problem is that the locker is downstairs, and if you want to lock your stuff, you have to go two floors down. I left my stuff in a locker, and then I went out to some parties in the streets during the Queen's day. When I got back, I took my backpack to... More
