Situated in one of the historical Art Deco buildings, dating back to 1923, it is just the perfect compromise between location, fun and a good night of rest! The hostel is run by travel lovers, knowing exactly what other visitors and backpackers need, from a good breakfast in the morning, a place to store your backpacks and a cool bar to enjoy some beers and meet some people.

There are 16 rooms, all of them with surprising decorative motives, such as the Art room. But you will be certainly impressed with the size of the place, a big bar, common living room with comfortable neobaroque  chairs and sofas, if it is a place to have fun in the evening, you can certainly also take advantage of it to work during the day when it is quiet and chill.

This is one of the biggest advantages of ROOM Hostel, you can easily walk down the big avenue right in front of the railway station, which will take you around 15 minutes, but on a straight line so you won’t lose your way.

You will also be fairly close to the city center, where all bars and cool architecture are, it won’t take you longer than 7 minutes. And also close to the Erasmus bridge, the skyline there is just amazing and really worth going for a walk next the river!

Facilities

As the owners of the Hostel are also travelers, they really know what you need. You have access to the bar where in the mornings you can enjoy the typical continental breakfast for free, but you can also have lunch, dinner or a drink by night. There is also a guest kitchen, as you might guess sometimes it isn’t the most organised, but before complaining,  you should keep in mind it really is important to wash your dishes after using them. The same way, remember writing your name on the food you keep on the fridge. All the rooms, bedclothes and common areas are clean everyday, that’s one of the things the Hostel cares the most about.

Prices
