Situated in the city centre, 15 minutes walk from Central station and only 450 metres from the Erasmus Bridge, Hostel ROOM Rotterdam offers room with free WiFi. There is a communal living area with a bar serving a selection of continental breakfast items, lunch, snacks & drinks, TV, Netflix and board games.

The hostel also offers various discount vouchers on tourist attractions, as well as free guided tour on foot.

In my opinion, the best stay in Rotterdam (if you like Hostels, and like to get in touch with other people). This hostel is in a beautiful old building and it feels very comfty to stay there. Location is great, just some minutes by tram from centrail train station! Also a great base, to explore Den Haag or Leiden (both just 30 - 40 minutes away, by train)

Everything is build and equiped by philosophy "give much more than is necessery". By far the best hostel I've ever been, even better than some classical "room for one" hotels.

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.

    Beautiful looking hostel in a great location, not far from central station. Really nice vibe with guests and staff using the shared space together and often cooking together (or at least at the same time). It made the place feel very inviting. Breakfast and beers are also very cheaply available for Rotterdam prices.

    Great location, good continental breakfast, and very family friendly. The room was clean and had 2 bunk beds with its own shower and toilet. Lovely atmosphere in the reception/bar area with plenty of seating to chill out. First time staying in a hostel and it was a great experience for the family.

    Great location in the city center, 10 minutes walk from main train & bus station, yet in the calm, quiet and safe back street. Room for solo traveler (one bed) is small but cosy and more than adequate, clean all around, with great bed and linen, tv, private bathroom with shower. Staff is very friendly and helpful (both receptionists I encountered). All of this you get for a really budget price, not much more than hostel bunk bed. Great experience overall.

    An amazing place where you can feel more at home than in a hostel. Everything is good. Friendly and professional staff, always willing to help and make you feel welcome. Clean, safe, cool, modern, with a lift, beds with privacy, a fabulous kitchen with cleaning rules which shows that they really care want to make your stay a pleasant one, good coffee, great location, so easy to find coming from the central station, even if you are tired and it’s late. Can’t ask for more really. A place to return to. Cheers guys! All the best!
