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...

We were here for one night and found the staff to be quite polite and helpful. We stayed in the mixed dorms. The rooms, ensuite washrooms and corridors are really nice (clean, tidy and well maintained). The location is very good and so is the wifi. They give discounted tickets for Rotterdam zoo as well. However, the breakfast is not...

After reading great things about this hostel, I was greeted by unhelpful, uninterested staff, a very frosty reception when I had asked about checking in any earlier than 3pm and felt an overall fairly pretentious atmosphere within the first 5 minutes of being there. Rooms are decorated well with some nice features, nice big windows, warm, nice artwork but with...

Dear Kezrez, Thank you very much for your review! I am sorry to read that you had an uninspired experience, this is just the opposite from what our intention is with our valued guests. Since you've arrived on Sunday morning shortly after 11 (our peak moment checking out Saturday guests) it was really not possible to arrange an earlier check...

I spent 1 night in this amazing hostel in Rotterdam. Location is awesome, it's located in the very city center, walking distance from the train station. The staff is the best, nice and helpful. You can get all-you-can-eat breakfast for cheap and I recommend you to try their cappuccino! Rooms are clean, bright, tidy and large. Plus: every room is...

Good reviews happen when you stay on a place for 2-3 good days but when you stay for a week, like us for ten days with a group of three, the nightmare started as contempt sets in. Things I like about it: 1. It's in a hip-street artsy-district Witt de Withstraat 2. It's close to metro and tram 3. Ultra...

Really enjoyed my stay here. Staff went above and beyond the call of duty even when I was tripping out my mind. The carpet in the lobby is mind altering. The facility's are very clean with amazing showers. Highly recommend staying here. Thank you King Kong and all your staff.

I've been King Kong Hostel in 2014 and it was amazing experience. There are sweet staffs, other guests and the locals who wants coffee and breakfast as well. I loved it. This cultural place is for hipster so you could like it more i think. If you visit Netherland, just stay here since you could reach everywhere within few hours....
