    This is a fantastic Hostel. No problem at all. The location and condition are great. It was just what I wanted. The staff were friendly and helpful too. I would definitely stay again if I find myself at the Hague again,

    Good Location But Wouldn't Recommend

    The place was OK, but I wouldn't go back! The room was completely different than in the pictures on the website, it had three bunk beds so close to each other that there was barely any floor space, no windows, and vodka ads on walls as "decoration". It felt like sleeping in a storage room of a bar. And the air quality was horrible at night. The rooms had very high bunk beds with three beds on top of each other, and I had to sleep on the highest bed. The bars around the bed were so high that I could easily fall from the gap and fall about 3.5 meters to the floor! (I actually tested this and I easily fitted through. The middle bunks didn't have any railings around them at all by the way!) I had to keep my bags around me at night to feel safe (hoping that the bags would stop me from rolling enough to fall), but I slept very poorly because of this and just couldn't feel safe! And I usually love top bunks, but only when they are safe!! I had booked a mixed dorm, and was surprised that "mixed" in this case meant seven men and me as the only woman... The mixed dorms I've stayed in before have actually been mixed so it was surprising... lt felt quite weird being the only woman in the room, and that didn't make me feel very safe either! The shower was also very unpleasant, the water pressure was almost nonexistent and the temperature was impossible to control!! Some positives though: great location, spacious and modern kitchen, nice lobby to chill in!

    Very clean, with a very nice location. Tri level bunks staggered so you are not looking at the next bunk.

    Staff was very kind and helpful, but I was very disappointed by the room. It didn't correspond to the pictures at all.

    Nice hostel with unique triple level bunk beds

    It is a nice hostel in a central location. However one point to note is the use of 3 level bunk bed which means that when checking in late, one have to be sleeping 2+m in the air; individuals with fear of heights should check in early.

    Nice hostel, right across from the tram stop. Stayed in a double private room, which included a private bathroom and linens (including towels). Would stay again.
