Liked: The character of this hostel is great. Jorplace is located in a quiet wee street in Den Haag just around the corner from a main tram line. Getting into central Den Haag is easy as pie on the tram. I only stayed one night so didn't get to see much of the area but did find it really nice. I especially appreciated being able to check-in early (11pm instead of 4pm) as I was able to have a much needed nap.

Disliked: All the signs in the hostel and in the dorms state meals are available for an extra cost but the reception staff advised that they only cook for groups now (at the time I stayed). This was somewhat disappointing as I was counting on having meals at the hostel (without cooking myself) to make life easier for the 24 hours I was staying. There is a supermarket 3 doors down so it wasn't the end of the world and in the end I didn't end up wanting dinner (or breakfast) so it wasn't an issue.

Liked: I was close to the beach.

Disliked: I think it is better to stay at the Hauge and commute to the beach which is a 30 minute tram ride. The rooms were overcrowded and not particularly clean. The room I was in (number 2) has a long term resident that used the only table for all his bathroom needs and turned on the light at any time of the night without regard for anyone else.

Liked: Big lockers. Good wifi.

Disliked: Small kitchen. Noisy on the weekend from people outside on the street and the thumping nightclub on the ground floor.

Liked: The beach bar was cool, and the walk to the beach was short. Liked the free pool table.

Disliked: Way too many people in one room, and way too few bathrooms for the number of people! We didn't even try to take a shower while we were there; they were dirty and small.

Liked: Very distinct style, with nice bar and smoking room that makes non-smokers jealous. The founder must be an experienced travelor, for everything a tourist need is catered to (from the equipment to the house rules), and the hostel also offer travel tips for new bees.

Disliked: The location. It is not the easiest thing to find when it is your first time there, especially if you arrive on a cold and windy winter night.

Liked: The property is quirky, with interesting decorations, and a friendly enough atmosphere.

Disliked: It is not particularly clean, although it wasn't dreadful as we only stayed one night. The lockers in the 24 bed dorm were mostly broken and so not secure. Within the 24 bed dorm it was not made clear that the beds would be 3 story bunk beds, which didn't feel very stable when you were stuck at the top!

Liked: The lovely beach town location and the funky surfery atmosphere. Friendly atmosphere and people get to know each other easily.

Disliked: The thief in the dorm - there are lockers but someone still managed to steal keys from people's bag on their pillows and phones etc. One staff member was very poor at dealing with the situation. The rest of the staff were much better, including the owner.

Liked: Amazing atmosphere, incredibly bohemian, yet not too much - open to everybody. Was excellent platform to meet new people and had good enough facilities to have a good night in.

Disliked: Whilst in the middle of Schivenhagen, it is not very close to Den Haag city centre, a good 30min bus ride away

Liked: The atmosphere and the staff was definitely helpful.

Disliked: The room for 24 peopl was too dark. It had only one overhead lamp, and only one electrical outlet to be shared between 24 people. The staff ran out of padlocks so I had to keep my stuff on me until the stores opened the next day so I could buy a lock.
