Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Great location near the train station and an easy walk to the center. The guy who runs the pension is very nice and helpful. It was nice to have a fridge in the room as well as tea and coffee. The room was clean and so was the shared bathroom. Value for money at 50 euros a night as the next cheapest room in town is 20 euros more. This is an old school pension with lots of Dutch charm and character. Good free wifi and TV.

    Room was well equipped and clean. Decor is nice, bathrooms are good. Room does feel overpriced - as it is more of a budget room set up, like citizenM - and there prices are much cheaper.

    Great location and near tourist information (if that's what you need) easy to find from bus/train station. Easy going staff and quick check in. Comfy bed in small corner room with large enough sized shower room. Tea kettle with selection of teabags, nespresso machine with cups and two bottles of still water standard in the room. Unfortunately couldn't find the safe in my room. Loads of terraced restaurants and pubs nearby and it looks the perfect setting for warmer days.
