I would advise that hostel to anyone who'd like to visit Rotterdam. Great location, not too far from the station, and easy to find! very friendly staff, hostel was spotless, and I loved the atmosphere! I'd definitely go back there!

We heard that the witte de withstreet is very cosy and alive any day of the week, my friend and I are originally from Amsterdam but decided to go out on a Wednesday summer night.. We were so happily surprised with the atmosphere, people but most of all the hostel who drew our attention with the unique design and friendly... More

This place should be on everybody's first list for a place to stay. Located not so far from the central station, you can reach it easily by tram. Two thumbs up for the services; you get free tea, coffee, and fast WiFi connection. The room was nice, comfy bed and clean bathroom. But the main highlight is the affordability! Overall... More

Wonderful stay! The staff was friendly and helpful. The hostel is fun, clean and in a great location. Netflix room, great coffee and pastries, close to everything, loved the turntable and lp's in our room. Our only complaint is the rock hard beds. Saying that though we would come back for sure!

Just stopped the one night here on a cycling trip. The staff were very welcoming, and due to a large family booking an entire floor, we had a free upgrade from hostel room to hotel room. For that reason alone they deserve a good review. They were also very helpful regarding our bikes, and we're happy for us to store... More

A really outstanding hostel, huge beds and everything is really clean. The kitchen and common area is well kept, and a really fun place to socialise. The staff are really friendly and helpful, as well as the other guests, you will meet many different nationalities! Also the location is great, and on the high street, so there are many yummy...

Clean, busy, pretty trendy. Good quality free coffee and coffee. Interior's quite nice. As part of a couple I booked the double-bed private loft room, but I was disappointed in its lack of privacy or benefits... it was right above the middle of a big dorm and very noisy at night, tipsy travellers coming in late, talking loudly, slamming doors......

Dear Guest, First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to submit the review about our hostel! I was sorry to hear that the "Lovers Loft" (309, the room you talk about in your review) didn't exactly hit your sweet spot. I see that last month you paid a visit to Vienna and also stayed in a...

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
