I stayed here for a night. Cozy little hostel and the staff were very friendly and the common rooms were nice. A few people have complained about the lockers as they're not in the room, but it's good as it helps the room be more quiet. I'd recommend both Utrecht and the hostel. Nice little get away.

This hostel is located in an optimal position to visit Utrecht. Staff is really friendly, the rooms and the towels are clean. I definitely loved the lounge area and the little but paceful garden where you can take relaxing moments and socialize with the other guests. The dormitory room is quite noisy but i didn't expect other... 20€ at night... More

I spent one night only in this hostel but was pretty good. The room was okay, clean and the shared toiler was right in front of my room. The showers were just 2 tho to share with the whole floor and the hot water was coming out only after couple of minutes after you opened the sink. You can have... More

I had previously visited Utrecht but this was my first time staying in a hostel. I was a student travelling alone, so I wanted somewhere cheap, safe and central. Hostel Strowis lived up to my expectations. The staff there were exceedingly friendly and helpful. I was offered tea on my arrival. The lounge area is great for socialising and for... More

It has a bar downstairs as usual, thousands of stairs as usual, breakfast horribly expensive as usual and shared rooms with shared bathrooms (girls and boys mixed) as usual. Nevertheless tha quality of sleep is good and sheets are clean. Pay attention about the mean and miserable detail after having pais 23€ per... More

I've spend in Strowis almost 2 months and I can say it's the best hostel I've been living in as so far. Conditions are fine, the hostel is cleaned up every day and prices are ok. But the most important thing is really nice and friendly atmosphere made by people working there. I recomend that place to anyone visiting Utrecht... More

Lovely hostel, wonderful location. Initially built for a noble cause. Was offered a drink upon arrival, which was very sweet of them. The showers take a while to warm up, so do not panic when they initially come out cold as it will heat up soon enough. Very nice and cozy common area with friendly hostel / bar staff. The... More

This hostel is great. The staff are really accommodating. They let me lock my bike in the back garden, made me a cup of tea on arrival, and knew loads about the town. Lovely bohemian atmosphere, really clean and there's an acoustic guitar you can play!
