Beautiful hostel with artistic and domestic atmosphere, a garden with a hammock and free tea of all imaginary tastes.
Breakfast consists of bread with various spreads, cornflakes, milk and coffee.
The two owners are charming and there's plenty information on all the cool events in Rotterdam.
The only serious drawback is the shower, which is literally a torture: it's not possible to regulate neither time of water supply, nor the temperature. For half a minute the water is icily cold, then for half a minute it's burning and then it switches off.
Some secret tips:
there's a box with free pasta, rice and sauces in the kitchen. so basically it's possible to survive without spending money on food.
it's possible to volunteer.
