Liked: I feel very safe. staffs are helpful and responsive, and willing to suggest attractions and give us advice. breakfast is included and nice enough for a light breakfast eater, but you need to upgrade with 3 euro to have a full breakfast. breakfast time finishes at 10am but staffs are very kind and leave it open later for those of us who get up late, that's a very nice gesture. location is very close to a tram stop on line 7, and right next to an indian restaurant which also has friendly staff. wifi works in room.

Disliked: male cleaner is the shared female bathroom (where girls change their clothes)? maybe it's just me but I don't like the idea, sorry. i wish there were more hooks to hang clothes in the individual shower rooms.

Liked: The staff were absolutely amazing! Super friendly, helpful and were very accommodating! They have different events every night to keep people involved and social. For example, Monday nights they make free traditional dutch food for all the guests at the bar. I was traveling alone and made a bunch of new friends.

Disliked: The only thing is the location. It is about a 25 minute walk from Rotterdam Centraal. That aside, it is right beside the harbour, so a beautiful location.

Liked: Nice location. Friendly staff. Walking distance to the city centre. Good restaurant/bar nearby along the river front serving amazing local food and beer. Breakfast included.

Disliked: Shower cubicle's were small in the mens bathroom. I found another shower room where i could leave my clothes etc and lock the door with a little more space

Liked: The staff is fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is nice, and there's free breakfast every morning. The washing is affordable, and the bedrooms have a nice vibe. The hostel has lots of things to offer-theme nights and bike rental services.

Disliked: The bathroom got a little wet and muddy from time to time. Also, the lockers in the room were more of a cage and only work if you put a bag in there, not so.ely your valuables. The rooms don't have enough lockers for everyone either.

Liked: Exceptionally nice sheets. Location within walking distance to the train station. Wifi reaches the rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Basic necessities like a kitchen and lockers (although the spacing between the lid and the basket requires a bigger lock than normal)

Disliked: Depending on what room your'e in, the washrooms (toilets) are a fair distance from the rooms. Like all of the Netherlands, hostel prices were pretty high, especially on the weekend.

Liked: It's easy to reach by tram from the central station. The breakfast (cereal, toast etc) was great considering it was free. The room was tidy and the beds + linen were good quality and comfortable. The storage lockers in the rooms are big enough to fit most bags.

Disliked: There's no ladders to climb up to the top bunk - I had to pull out the storage locker under the beds and stand on that. The self-catering kitchen was usually untidy and didn't have a lot of cooking utensils etc. There aren't a lot of showers and toilets compared to the number of rooms and on my floor the toilet is between both showers so the water from the shower runs into the toilet floor.

Liked: fairly well location, easy to find and an excellent night view of the bridge just 3 min walk away. Told that Rotterdam is a very modern city but the building exude a historical aura, old apartment building with well interior design. Young, talkative and friendly staff. la cerise sur le gateau, a bar with great music taste just in the 0 floor. But you can find it a bit noisy too if you happen to stay just above it in the zoo room like me.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
