“Unique architecture, great accomodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Great location, unique architecture and good service and price. What else could you ask for? I ended up in Holland without any hotel nor hostal booked. These guys were my saviors. Located just a block away from Blaak Subway Station, it is an amazing hub to get anywhere in Rotterdam. Rooms are, as seen from outside, cubic from inside too. You feel weird inside, but you can get cozy in no time. The staff is quite friendly and helpful, prices are reasonable (about 18€ a night), free wi-fi in the lobby, and comfortable and clean rooms. Food machines in the lobby and restaurants and pubs just on street level. Everything you need in one location.

Room Tip: They are al cubes, so anywhere is just fine.

I ended up doing the tour of Holland in Rotterdam and without having booked any Hotel, after a short bike ride I noticed this unusual cubic structure from afar.
I must admit that aesthetically it's really bizarre.
Fortunately at that time there was availability and I opted for a double room.
The exterior of the hotel is great, it overlooks the river's edge, here in the evening is literally surrounded by pubs, a young and worm atmosphere.
The room prices were quite high, the room was small, of course I slept in one of those giant room cubes.
The room is bare, 4 walls and two single beds, stop, nothing else.
The hostel is really huge, the rooms are too many and as a result it is very crowded.
The thing that I liked best was the breakfast the next morning free buffet, I have never eaten so much in my life for breakfast, rich and wide choice.
All in all it was a great experience, I recommend it.

You do not want to stay in another hostel, but stay okay, its slap-bang in the middle of the action, Best night club -VIE- just in front!
Good hostel, clean rooms, small mirrors, and sore neck from slanted walls.
great staff, made friends with all of them playing WII at night!!! got an amazing deal for a week too.
TRY THE CHERRY BEER at the bar, best thing you find in Netherlands !!!!

The hostel has good location, very nice and friendly staff. It has fantastic view on their public balcony. The breakfast is fair. WiFi available in the lobby. But the room is small, lack of facilities.

I have stayed one night with 2 friends in the hostel. The room would fit for persons with a physical handicap, especially the bathroom. We didn't like the room but the location was great. The breakfast was okay.

The hostel is great, it's in a fantastic location, right next to Blaak station, and a great architectural site. You get to sleep in one of the famous cubes. However, I thought the rooms could have been a tad warmer. We adjusted heating to maximum possible and felt cold.

The rooms of "Stayokay" Rotterdam lie inside the famous building of the "Cube houses" by Piet Blom, and this is a first good reason to try the experience of going to bed in a cubic room, with sidelong walls. A little dizziness is granted.
The service is good, the place is quite small but this improves the possibility to share the holiday with other travellers and know the other guests. A piece which I personally take in great regard: a book which stores all contributions (signatures, greetings, thoughts, drawings,...) by the guests of the hostel.
Staff is available and patient for explanation; bike rent in the hostel, maps of the city available.
The place is next to Blaak station, so one minute walk; near, on the bay of the White House, I suggest a good place where to eat: the pub on the left, which allows you to have dinner looking upon the water.
