  • The hostel itself is very well-located in the centre of Rotterdam, i really enjoyed it. However there is poor wifi connection in the rooms. The beds are making noise while turning on it.

  • The time at DeMafkees was very, very good. I stayed with my 9-year-old son there and everyone was very child friendly. The staff is very nice, friendly and supportive. I would stay definately again. It was a great time.

  • Considering the price one cannot complain. Sheet and pillow are not comprise so if you don't have a sleeping bag it's 5 euro more for rent it. The dormitory looks a bit as an hospital, a large room full of bed, quite close one to another. The atmosphere in the common space was nice, the breakfast was poor but free. For save money is ok, but if you don't have linen with you it isn't the most convenient in Rotterdam anymore and I would maybe consider also other places.

  • biking to the train station takes no more than 5 mins, free wifi and towel and including basic breakfast the water is not strong enough for showering however, considering the low price, the facilities they offer are fair
