People might call me different, but I think that makes me, me. I’m a local boutique hostel. Somewhere in between a 5-star hotel and laid-back hostel. I’m a place to eat, drink and sleep in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
I’ve taken the Dutch gezelligheid to every corner of the hostel to make it feel like home and did I already mentioned that I love plants, local art and vintage Dutch furniture?
Now you could call me old fashion as I enjoy to meet people, play a game or read a book. That’s why I left out tv’s and wifi in my 12 rooms.
My comfortable beds and laid-back atmosphere makes that I’m the place to relax, sleep and to feel at home. Everyone is welcome. I don’t judge. Nope. Not ever.
Shopping, a night out or spending time at the beach or in the national park?
My check- in time is at 15:00 but I would love to meet you earlier so you can drop off your bags and I can tell you everything my city has to offer.
I’m located in the Burgwal Neighborhood in the city center, across the water from the Teylers Museum and the central square, the Grote Markt. I’m a 15 minute walk from Haarlem station, 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam and a 40 minute bike ride to my national park and the beaches Zandvoort and Bloemendaal.
I have a private patio where I burn quite some wood in the fireplace. So light my fire and don’t burn the marshmallows. The patio is a secret spot where I enjoy the sun during breakfast and my afternoon snack.
WARNING: My people might make you feel too much at ease. My apologies upfront.
