I had the loveliest stay in Hello I'm Local. Greeted by friendly staff and moved from the 14 bed room to the all girls dorm as there was space for me there at no extra charge. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have a nice time in Haarlem which is a beautiful and laid back city. The rooms are immaculately clean and the beds are so comfy. Plus it's only a 20 minute bus ride to the beach and a 20 minute train ride into Amsterdam. The photos and reviews of this place speak for themselves. You absolutely get a local boutique experience here. Tip: skip Amsterdam and commute from here! I highly recommend it!
