Strowis Hostel

Top choice hostel in Utrecht
Image by

Utrecht's most appealing hostel occupies a high-ceilinged 17th-century building; the dorms don't feel overly cramped even in the 16-bunk room. In the basement, luggage lockers (free with €10 deposit) are good-sized and some incorporate a charger plug. The appealing cafe-lounge area opens on to a quirky rear garden. The small but well-equipped kitchen closes at 10.30pm.

Prices include sheets and towels. Laundry costs €6.
