I really enjoyed to stay in Ani&Haakien for all my 13 days. It has a cozy atmosphere all-around. Daniele and Joyce are doing a great job managing the hostel and you can feel the heart and effort put in this place. Lots of it has been constructed from recycled materials and all I can say is well done! There is a back garden with a hammock to chill in. A room for yoga lessons is also coming in the near future. I am already looking forward to coming back soon and I would recommend it to any traveler.

A really nice place to stay! It's near Rotterdam Central Station so easy to reach when you get off the airport bus. The owners have created a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There's a large kitchen where you can make breakfast, a garden to catch up with other travellers and a living room with some very interesting pieces of furniture. The place is brandnew so everything is still nice and clean. If I ever come on a late flight again, I won't hesitate and walk to Ani&Haakien.
