This hostel has the most comfortable mattresses, is super clean everywhere, has a fantastic common area that brings travellers together, and has events like dinners and live music. And the amazing garden! You can read a book in the hammock or sit around the circle at night and meet the other cool people and staff. It has a homey but... More

Great kitchen and yummy included breakfast of toast/cereal, tea and juice. Highlight though was the fantastic staff! They were so friendly, enthusiastic and gave us loads of information about places to see in the city. The hostel... More

I stayed here whilst I was finding somewhere to live in Rotterdam. The hostel itself is always very clean and has a very nice social area to sit. The room sizes were perfectly fine and the beds were relatively comfy. I was always able to find a member of staff when I needed to. Everyday of the week the hostel... More

I chose Ani & Haakien because I came to Rotterdam for university reasons, so I needed my sleep during the night. The area is pretty quiet as it's in a residential area, but it's only a five minute walk from the central station and you're quite close to bars and restaurants as well. I stayed in a 6-bed-dorm. It's one... More

A really good hostel. Nice staff, confortable beds, free breakfast every morning and they often cook in the evening. They have some free tours which are really good! Had a great stay, there is a good atmosphere too, i've met some really good people there.

Me and my buddy were visiting Rotterdam for a short stay and I’m glad we chose Hostel Ani and Haakien. It was a pleasant stay. We chose a private room with double bed. Although small, it was cosy and clean. The staff were also very helpful in giving us directions around the area. When we felt too cold at night,... More
