King Kong Hostel

Top choice hostel in Centrum
Image by

There's plenty to like about this hip hostel in Rotterdam's major party precinct. Female and mixed-sex dorms sleep between four and 18, with bunks, under-bed lockers and plenty of power points. Shared bathrooms are modern and clean. Facilities include a laundry (€8 per load wash and dry), a luggage room, a communal kitchen, bike storage, a chill space and a ground-floor cafe.

Private doubles have king-size bed, TV and small fridge. Breakfast is included in the room rate for these, but costs €7.50 for dorm guests. Note that the lack of aircon makes it imperative that windows are opened in summer, meaning that street-facing dorms are noisy until well into the wee hours.
