Hostel Roots

Top choice hostel in Tilburg
Image by

Friendly, stylish and handily close to Tilburg station, Roots has given a former 19th-century bank building a design-aware makeover to create one of the Netherlands' best hostels. Comfortable, super-sturdy bunks come with personal lamp and plenty of power points. Breakfast is €8.50. The private rooms are bright and some have a balcony.

There's a piano in the inviting central atrium/lobby lounge and games in the basement bar where guests pay half price for their first drink. Occasional end-of-month events are hosted (open mic, comedy night etc). There's a kettle and fridge but not a full guest kitchen.
