It's a very good hostel for solo travelers. I participated in quiz night which was great for meeting people. The drinks are inexpensive!

bar, tabs, smart tv, kitchen, wifi really fast throughout the building, free tea-coffee and muesli (breakfast for 4 euro more a day, if I am not wrong), 24 reception-shop... everything is new, comfortable and cool but, more important, really clean! Morevor they have also a ventilation system, that is not usual even if essential in every hostel. KingKong is far better than other hostels I ve stayed in town that have no kitchen and essential facilities (costing just a few euros more x day), no comparison with the average of A'dam. they are in the nightlife area. they got also special deals for long stayer (I did not know this before, so I could have saved about 30 euro if someone would have told me that when paying, that is why I did not give 100% for value for money). Maybe also the laudry facility is a bit expensive, but still in the average of other laundries in town (that are not so many). The groundfloor during the night, when doors are closed, iz a bit too hot, but I am sure that with the dutch weather it won't be a problem in the next months :) I felt really safe, however I d put some more camera, like in the laundry room, where a weird blond guy arrassed me apparently without any sense. The cleaners were very polite not waking me up and all the staff, especially the nightshift guys, were very polite and nice. greetings to all the staff, keep on doing like that.

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.

Leah would recommend this property 17 August 2014

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".

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.
