It took a little while, some planning, lots of money, motivation, determination and with a hell lot of help from friends and family, but finally in 2006 the ultimate dream started: opening a backpackers hostel in Rotterdam. The 1st independent hostel in the city!
Now that we are many years ahead hostel ROOM has become a buzzing backpackers hostel and we are still super proud of what has been achieved. So many people from of all over the world have found their home away from home, fell in love, broke up, got drunk, made new friends and got inspired to pursue their own dreams and goals in life. They all became just as enthusiastic about Rotterdam as we are and shared their thoughts and crazy pictures with the rest of the world.
We couldn’t have created this great ‘home away from home’ community hostel without our lovely dedicated staff. A great mix between local Rotterdam citizens and travelers who decided to stick around for a while. They are all part now of this amazing ROOM family and we all have one thing in common: our love for Rotterdam and travelling!
We can't wait to meet you and hope to welcome you soon in our hostel!
Lots of love
Mirjam and Monique
