we slept here for 2 nights, the first night was noisy at night because people snoring, but the next day they were gone, so a little bit quiet. And the first day breakfast was okay-normal, the second day breakfast was bad, the person forgot to took the bread out of the freezer, so it was still cold-ice, and their toaster... More

The hostel is less than 10 minutes walking from the Rotterdam Station. I had a very good experience, during 4 nights in the hostel. Staff were very friendly, and also they speak Spanish. I don´t understand the low calification on this hostel. It is near the center of the city, it is VERY cheap, its safe, you can use big... More

This has probably been my poorest hostel experience up to now. There are only 3 rooms in the whole hostel, so it's more like a camp site really. I stayed in a room with about 50 beds. It wasn't too dirty, but not too clean either. The worst thing about it, however, was the security- or better said, the lack... More

No no no no no ! Funny but in our room there was no light, electricity at all, bathroom with no hot water .. terrible beds.. luckly we were there just for one night. Bathrooms look a lot like auschwitz.. with lost thangs .. feels like being in the end of the world not in rotterdam :D

Regardless the hygiene and the poor service, which is quite normal for a hostel, this place is the best if you want to see some strangers going into your dorm and some of your belongings stolen. I went there with my friends a night before King's Day. We were in a dorm, with other people, which was okay. But we... More

I stayed here for around 16 nights during the Film Festival. Considering that I only payed 10€ per night (including breakfast) I'm very happy with what I got for my money. The long stay dorm is quite nice, especially as you'll get a bunkbed with a curtain to yourself...a bit of privacy is always nice. The facilities are ok, a... More

The staff is very excited to work, help you as most of them are volunteers. They will treat you as they are hosts and you are just a guest to them. Facilities'r not so good but u can feel here very cosy in less costs! They tried to reduce costs as much as they can. But for not their profits,... More

I had to stay for one night in Rotterdam and I went to this hostel closed to the train station, The position is really good, the staff is really nice. The price for Rotterdam is ok (12.50euro/night, breakfast included). You have to pay 3euros more for sheets but it is ok (I knew that before on the web). Even if... More

Upon booking, me and my friends thought the idea of 100 people in a room at 8 euro a night was funny. Upon arriving, instant regret hit us. Granted it is cheap and the staff are average, but everything else is so bad (It cost 5 euro for bedding which then made it not massively cheap). The actual sleeping room... More

Upon arrival it's a bit tatty but wasn't expecting much' the staff were friendly easily helping us check in and an area to put luggage which was locked up for safety. For €8 a night this was top value with free bar football and pool table his was an added extra. The sleeping facilities are fine nothing special but somewhere... More
