We passed by for a coffee. The staff was very kind the coffee was very tasty. Free wifi and electricity plug in next to the sofa. It saved my battery because I had a long way back to Athens. Worths a short pass by.

The hostel is located in a busy Street, which can be a plus or a con for you depending on what you want. There is no elevator, so expect to carry up your bags (more than two floors in my case). Beds were comfortable but the stairs to the upper bunk bed were a bit too narrow. There's a small...

Awesome vibes! Great staff and clean spacious 16 person dorm! Very nice kitchen for people to use and grocery stores near by, the place had a really great artistic vibe and I would most definitely consider returning to this hostel! Staff is willing to help you find whatever you need

We stayed here for 3 nights just as a city break to see the sights and nightlife. This hostel was great! Great price. Clean. Friendly. Great facilities. Great location. I couldn't believe the place was so good for the price we paid. Will definitely be staying here again

I stayed at King Kong for 3-nights to hit up the UFC Rotterdam event as a solo traveller.. I chose the Deluxe 4 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite (Private Bathroom) - excellent condition, very clean room with a modern bathroom, power shower making the "freshening" up a pleasure. Secure storage under the beds, individual reading lights/power sockets for each bed. A...

The cafe and bar downstairs in very social and extends onto...

Good hostel with a great location, if you want to do sightseeing walks and partying. Staff is kind, especially at breakfast and check-in they were very helpful. Breakfast is delicious, try their strawberry jam with a croissant! Yummy... The room was simple, but trendy, well-cleaned, value for money. I especially liked their storage boxes! Great design and unique solution! Unfortunately,...

Easy to get to from Central Station (take Tram 7 toward Willemsplein) - get off at Museumpark stop and you are literally 1 block away from the hostel. Great night life area. The Chinese restaurant across the street is open from 4pm to 5:30am if you get hungry at odd hours! The bar/club across the street is 24 hours as...

The rooms were clean, comfy beds. The bathrooms were fantastic. Large showers, multiple and good toilets too. There was a nice bar near the reception with a little cinema room, but I didn't really use that much. Best part about this hostel is its location! It's located on one of the best streets in Rotterdam plus is only about 10...
