Boutique hostel is an accurate description. The sturdier bunk beds and individual plugs and lights made for a comfortable night's sleep. While I slept great and enjoyed the friendly staff, I found it difficult as a solo traveler to meet people since there was no happy hour or free/cheap breakfast. Though the breakfast (though a tad pricey) was delicious, and...

First I'd like to say that this is a very nice hostel. Reception is great, helpful and polite. The mattresses and pillows are very comfortable. But for being a boutique hostel I've got some suggestions for improvements. The light in the shower is very weak, same as the ventilation. After showering it feels like a sauna in there and you...

...love on every detail. Perfect clean, almost luxury beds, the perfect combination between clasic, sometimes rustical style and modern confort with a lot of warm-white wood. Showers like a 4stars hotel. And marvelous staff.

I stayed here during a solo trip for two nights in January. It was one of the best hostels I've stayed at, and I would definitely come back again. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was well designed and clean (I stayed in one of the larger rooms), with easy access to the shower and toilet. The...

I picked this hostel for my solo Europe trip. It was very pretty. Very, instagram worthy I'd say. :D The Location This hostel is located about 800 meters away from the Haarlem central station. They encourage you to follow the Google map (which is accurate). But as I was carrying rather heavy luggage, I had to take a taxi (which...

14-bed dorm very comfortable, staff very helpful and cares about us enjoying our time there. Very basic kitchen, kettle/microwave/fridge, free tea/coffee. Haarlem was a great surprise and we enjoyed walking around its little town center, Saturday market was great to wander around. Only 10min train to Amsterdam center, great alternative to crazily expensive hotels in Amsterdam, especially when there are...

Stayed here with my family and absolutely loved it. The decor and atmosphere are absolutely great - feels like the finish you get on a very nice hotel with the friendly relaxedness that only a great hostel can have.

Best hostel ever: beautifully decorated room, great location, wonderful people and service, cute bar/coffee place in the hostel where we had lovely breakfast. We stayed with 3 adults in the room with the typical Dutch "bedstee" and it was great.
