  • I really liked the atmosphere of the hostel- very friendly and relaxed. I enjoyed my stay here though the facilities weren't the greatest, I felt very comfortable and this is very valuable as a backpacker. It would be nice to switch up the breakfast of bread and spreads every morning. I stayed 4 nights and was sad to leave as it was my favorite hostel that I stayed at in the Netherlands.

  • The room is big room enough to hold 48 beds! We were shocking when we firstly stepped in. Of course we come for its cheap price. However the public living room is also big enough. We enjoyed the ping-pong ball (the ball was broken and no more new one) and the billiard, and unexpected Christmas Eve party!

  • This may be the only hostel in Nijmegen, but it certainly ranks as one of the BEST in the Netherlands!! Because of their location, you feel like you are walking into a friend's flat more than just being in a hostel. Breakfast is incredibly convenient and the small capacity makes you feel very much at home. I am so glad to know this hostel exists. I definitely think you should try this hostel for a night before you ever consider booking a hotel near Nijmegen.

  • A decent place for the price. Stayed about 5 nights. Staff is very friendly. Nothing spectacular, but it's cheap and a place to sleep.

  • You get what you pay for. The dorms with 35 people are very difficult to sleep in since there are so many people. The cots are very uncomfortable and noisy. However, if you just need a place to sleep for the night, that is better than the train station, this is the place to go.
