I styed in this accomodation several times.
Sometimes I have made bookings in advance, other times I walked in and just asked.
It"s always wise to walk in if it"s ODD SEASON (Sept tit aerly MAY).
The former Youth Hostel organizations calls it nowadays a "STAYOKAY HOSTEL", its like a */** star hotel if you want (Booking a private room is somethimes possible) on the other hand there is the "BED OP ZAAL". Zaal means shared room, but there are not to many bed in a room (I think up to 6 or somewhat).
So its quite comphie. You can find your privicay on the first floor int the room with the tv set.
Downstairs net to the lobby there is the eateriy (for the evening meal for single travellers).
The staff is helpful and has a lot of information on ROTTERDAM.
They sell public transportation tickets (called in dutch "OV" or "strippenkaart".
An advice its cheaper and easier to buy the 15 or 46 trip ticket.
or the day passes.
Opposite of the building is one of the colleges of the City of Rotterdam "Hogeschool Rotterdam" and the Medical Faculty of Rotterdam"s ERASMUS University.
There is space for about 120 guest and there is a breakfast buffet (every weekday from 07.00 til 09.00) witch serves a typical ddutch breakfast with milk, coffee, tea, orange juice, diff. sorts of wwhite, brown bread and rols, jam, cheeses, muesli, flakes and many more.
I always enjoy a stay here (it is mostly only 1 or 2 nites).
Nearly every sleeping room has his own bath room and showers.
