Stayed in a private room for two nights and loved every moment! I really valued the comfortable bed. The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. Thought the record player with fun old records was a great touch!! Regarding the hostel in general...the staff were laid-back and helpful, they informed us about this great Burger place right next door... More

Best hostel we stayed in during our interrail trip end of last summer. The hostel is super clean and has a really friendly atmosphere. Location is great, we walked everywhere we wanted to go in the city which is important for us as we suck at public transport! Very friendly staff who will have a chat with you and give... More

Bang in the middle of the bar/ restaurant area. Really banging when we arrived. Hostel has free wifi, free kitchen and is tastefully decorated. Rooms are spacious and the linen is all new. En suites are well decorated with quality showers. I would visit here again with the family if I come back to Rotterdam.

We came across this lovely place while walking around Rotterdam and we sat down for a coffee and cake. Although we didn't stay at the hostel and I cannot comment on the rooms, I have to say, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was great and the place is awesome! The receptionist was super polite and very eager to please... More

Right above the most popular bar of the town, party till 4 am. Was molested repeatedly in front of the door by passing vandals. One homeless person lives right in front of the hostel and tried to push me into giving him something each single time I went out to smoke. The common area of this hostel is a posh... More

I stayed at KingKong with a group of architects exploring the city. The hostel is located in the heart of the city on one of the most vibrant and exciting streets. All must-visit places in Rotterdam are no more than 15min walk away. The hostel itself is very well designed, clean, trendy and playful! Staff are really friendly and helpful!... More

We only stayed one night but it was so perfect. Everything was squeaky clean and everyone was so friendly. The kitchen was great, easy to use and clean. We even had Netflix in our room and could get cake late at night. Couldn't fault anything!!!
