The hostel is incredibly convenient but not nice. The room was huge and only had a couple of plugs to charge electronic devices. The beds were uncomfortable and the whole place was a little on the dirty side. Definitely not recommended for more than a night.

The hostel is 10 min walk to the city center, 5-10 from Groningen Noord station,15-20 from Groningen main train station, in a quiet location. The hosts are friendly and try to help out even though not very organized. I stayed in the female dormitory (18 beds): the door makes an ugly noise, the sinks just outside the door are made... More

One night stay in 3 bed room "B". It was basic but clean. Choice of two temperatures in the room either cold or tropical as the radiator was either off or on full blast. Unfortunately walls are thin and when our noisy neighbours in room A went in and out in couldn't be done without slamming their door which at... More

This hotel hotels perfect when you want want to visit the city. It is Very nearby the city center. The hotel is simple but clean. The bathroom is on the hallway. Breakfast is also simple but good. It is a typical dutch breakfast: bread with hagelslag etc.

I stayed in a female dorm of 16 for 5 days. Most of the travellers were international students, but there was no noise or problems. The atmosphere was relaxed both in the dorm and in the common area. I spent some time outside, sort of garden area. Helpful staff, comfy beds, clean bathrooms and showers - and good price too.... More

First of all I must say that most of the staff members were incredibly friendly and helpful (and funny). Given the cost of accommodation in the Netherlands, you pretty much get what you pay for. The basic price includes bed sheets but no blanket (luckily I had a sleeping bag with me). Breakfast can be purchased in the cafe but... More

It was the worst hostel/hotel staff I have ever met! We were treated really bad since we got there, like we were doing a favor of staying there. Also, the breakfast was bread, cheese and milk. The location is not the best. Don't recommend the stay.

It's not acceptable that during Eurosonic (so when you are surely full booked) one of the two showers in the dormitory doesn't work and the other hasn't no regular temperature (or too hot or too cold and no possibility to regulate it). The hostel has a great position but really: showers are terrible. I am tall, and i couldn't shower... More

This youth hostel is what you can expect of it, a pretty decent place to stay for a reasonable price. We stayed at a two-bed room, which is a (very) small room with two beds and nothing more. The (shared) bathroom has a shower and toilet, both of which could use an upgrade (but they're not terrible). The hostel is... More

We had a cosy private twin room with separate shower and toilet sharing with just 2 other rooms located right next door. Noise was not a problem here. Great value hotel, off the beaten track location in a lovely part of town that is easy to walk everywhere from and has good public WiFi with decent continental breakfast. They also... More
