You can tell a lot of design effort went into the public spaces. It is very clean and well maintained. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Bedding is new and clean. Wifi is decent. Breakfast is simple but the kitchen is big and available for your use.

Staff lovely and helpful, queen bed dormitory really amazing especially when there are only 3-4 in a 6 beds room! Excellent public space from reading region, kitchen and dining region to recreational region. Many books you can read including Lonely Planet Europe! Kitchen clean and well equipped with always free coffee and tea! Wifi quick and good signal, location just on bar street so the atmosphere perfect, not far from central station but really easy to get to tourist sites like Maritime Museum, Swan Bridge, Kube house, the Van Boningen museum, Kunthal exhibition building, Architecture Institute are all just across one boulevard, from there enjoy time in 2 big parks and visit Euromast if you want to have a view of the Port.

The location was really good. Really near to the place where I attend my conference. The 4bedroom was really good as well, very cleaned and with space to leave my stuff. The breakfast was very nice as well.

It was really clean, breakfast was pretty good, it felt safe and cosy. Not super friendly but I think that's a general Europe theme with bigger hostels and people travelling in groups but I enjoyed my stay there fine. :-) Thought the location was good but Rotterdam is not exactly "big" so I really don't think it matters too much where you stay. The bike hire was very handy.

This hotel is an old hotel and has some very nice wood work in the bar and pool room areas. A classic hotel of the 20's and 30's with renovations added through the years. Hotel started service I was told in 1917. It survived WW I and WW II, a amazing feat in itself and to still be in operation at a low price. Elevator is an older generation but still whisper quiet. Service and the people - very nice group of people, all do well. Breakfast is always fresh, timely and with a smile - nice start to any day. Location is great with Rotterdam Centrum within walking distance, shopping - everywhere around it, museums nearby, City Hall, Metro, Trams, night life, et al. A nice stay. Rooms are basic but so is the price. Clean and simple. Not a 5 Star but you didn't pay for 5 Star either. Location is good enough, there are 5 Stars around it, says something - in Real Estate - Location, Location, Location. If looking for a resort, then the resort is the destination. Rooms to "work out of and to travel from - worth it".

The dorm was rather big and sometimes during night a bit (too) noisy when other travelers came in. It would be better if the dorm windows would have some shutters to keep the light outside during the night. A very well equipped and clean kitchen. A microwave would be a nice to have additional ‘tool’ in this kitchen. The common room is very well. Enough benches and tables to sit. Some nice games available (table tennis, billiard, board games) and nice and cosy sitting areas. Music available though not too loud, just perfect! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very well hostel for a couple of nights, very close to the Central Station in a rather quite area ,of the city. Recommended!

I'm from Korea. It was my first experience to sleep in the Europe hostel. Atmosphere is natural. Fast internet was also good. I love the big cafeteria with billiards table, comfortable sofa, kitchen, lockers and so on. It's more friendly and familiar for me like foreigner.

in my mind I can only give this place 1 star. At the core the bed was fine, the shower was fine, the staff were helpful, friendly, ready to speak English and they tried very hard given it is run by one family with two kids of their own to look after.
