Along with 3 other friends I was in Rotterdam for New Year. The Stayokay was our choice of stopover. We were travelling on a budget, so a group room in a hostel was ideal. It is well located in Blaak, near the tramline and metro stops with good access to off-street parking.
The hostel as a whole was easily navigable, clean and well presented. The four of us were in a room for 7 so had plenty of room and a fantastic view over the historic harbour next to the hotel and the surrounding skyline. The bunk-beds, whilst not huge (I am 6ft 1 so any bunk-bed is usually a squeeze), were just about the most solidly built bunk I've ever stayed in - the smoothed steel frames simply did not move anywhere and didn't creak, bend or rock. Good stuff.
Staff were helpful and wonderfully multi-lingual and the continental breakfast was pretty damn tasty. Any Brits expecting table service or a fry-up here will be sadly dissapointed, but you will not go hungry.
The bar is quiet, couches are comfy and enough games, cards and table-football is available to entertain any REALLY bored travellers. The building lacks a bit of atmosphere somewhat but hey, its a hostel!

The houses are located close to the Oude Haven, a historic area of the city bristling with bars, restaurants and cafés.

The hostel is particularly suitable for groups staying several nights, but also for meetings & workshops. ... more less
