We've found this hostel by chance walking in Rotterdam's streets. It was awesome. All the staff's members were really friendly. We slept in the big dorm room, wich was really spacious and well decorated. The kitchen was amazing. There's also a room with a big TV where you can watch movies on confortables sofas. The Hostel is located in the... More

King Kong Hostel is an ideal budget option located on the lively Witte de Withstraat. When we visited in May it had only been open for a month or so but things ran very smoothly. The manager was very friendly and helped carry our bags up the stairs and moved us to a different room with a double bed -... More

Dear Sibien, Thank you very much for this positive review! We do remember your funy story with locked keys! We warn our new guests, who purchase the locks, not to have the same accident, and every time we still giggle :) But nothing is too much effort for our nice guests! We always try to deal fast with all guest... More

King Kong hostel is probably the best hostel in Rotterdam. It's located at the hearth of Rotterdam and in most hip street in the city, Witte de Withstraat. If you are looking for indie-vibes, and very cool cafe to hangout King Kong hostel is the place. The hostel has very spacious room for 4 (during my stay) and super comfy... More

This hostel breaths a mix of urban, playful and classy atmospheres. The hostel is located in the center of Rotterdam (Witte de Withstraat) where you can find many great bars and restaurants. A lot of major attractions are within walking distance. The hostel itself is very funky and modern, besides that the rooms and common areas are very clean. The... More

This is really THE place to stay if you're going to Rotterdam ! The hostel is very well situated, on a lively street very close to the city center, the staff is very welcoming, the dorms are clean and quite originally furnished and the lounge and the kitchen are perfect to meet new people. I couldn't recommend it enough !

I recently took my first trip to Rotterdam, on business, and the King Kong hostel was recommended to me by a colleague (a gallerist) based in the city. I was pleased to find it located right in the heart of a very fun, trendy street (Witte de Withstraat) full of great cafes, bars, restaurants and galleries. The staff at King... More

We booked twin bed room but we didn't know it's shared room until we reached. The room provided was located at the loft with curtain which gave us some privacy that we wanted, so we just accepted it. Overall this hostel is very clean & comfortable!

We were a group of 16 in a university trip to Holland, so we pretty much had the entire upper floor on our own. The conditions are amazing, everything is clean. Near the kitchen (which had everything you would have at home), we could watch some movies or play karaoke while sitting on the comfortable puffs. And, la pièce de... More

My girlfriend and I stay here for two nights. Every hostel should be like this is one, I think. Very comfortable and clean, good prices, but the most important, it's unique and interesting because of its staff, rooms (every room is different with its own look) and location. Very nice people. They do their very best to help you. If... More
