OK for a short stay
I went to Rotterdam for a concert and since all other hotels were booked or eildly out of my price range due to the marathon happening that weekend, I thought this hostel would fit the bill for the 3 nights I was staying. The hostel is in the party area of Rotterdam (something I wasn’t aware of). As you’d imagine, it gets incredibly loud in the evenings and trying to transit that street is an “experience”. I wasn’t there to party so this wasn’t a plus for me at all. The hostel is close to a few metro stations and a 20 minute walk away from the Central station. The hostel facilities are fine. The dorm I stayed in had double beds and each one had a curtain around the bed so that was quite handy. The mattress and pillows are horribly uncomfortable though but I guess that’s to be expected from hostels. I was glad not to be charged extra for towels and bed linen and I thought it was quirky but thoughtful that they give you a banana when you check in.

A great hostel-excellent location, friendly and clean. In the dorm the beds have curtains and a light so you can read without disturbing anyone else. Very highly recommended. The food was also excellent and a great bar area too.

great place
love the queen size bed and the individual dark curtains, good for those need privacy during sleep. Bathroom and the room itself is big enough. And staff are helpful.

Set in one of the best locations.
The location of the Hostel is incredible, it's in the heart of Rotterdam and extremely easy to get around (I brought my bike with me). Didn't stay in the room too much so i can't comment too much on that but the room size was descent and it had a clean onsite shower and toilet. Highly recommend if you're going with a group of people.

One night in Rotterdam
This is a really great spor and by far one of my best hostel experiences.I needed a bed for the night because I was leaving early the next morning and it was unbelievably clean! Also, the service was bar none the best I’ve ever had. The staff are fun, friendly, and so knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Only thing to keep in mind is that if you are staying in a mixed dorm you will need to hike to the top floor which is three levels so pack light. Nevertheless, they also helped me with my luggage and agreed to store if I needed it and again just fabulous service. There is a bar on the main level and people were partying late into the night but I had no trouble going to sleep.
