maricruz1 The front desk staff is very young, but nice and friendly. The stairs are very very very steep and narrow, it was hard to maneuver a 23 Kg suitcase up and down the stairs. The breakfast is good, nice to have coffee/tea/hot cocoa station all day long, and there are nice touches like the bowl of complimentary fruit at the entrance. Another big bonus is to have free wi-fi and blow dryer in the room. I stayed in a single room with private bathroom. There are convents with larger cells! Still the bed was comfortable and after you get used to jumping over your suitcase (no place to store it) and living out of it (almost 0 closet space) you get to appreciate the privacy and quietness of the place.
tim_collignon Very friendly welcome. Great location just outside the very centre of Utrecht. Pillows were too flat for my taste. And shower in the room sounds convenient, but not when you have to share that room with other people that get up at different times. But overall: a very good hostel!

Sam I Am I stayed here with a group of friends (about 10 of us). The location of this property is pretty much perfect, which was what we were after for the night. Unfortunately that's where the really positive notes about this property end. When we first got there we could hardly believe it was a hostel and it looked pretty sketchy going in too. No one seemed to know where to check in or who would do it, but finally someone appeared that took our money and gave us a key. We were sleeping on the very top floor of the building. The rooms were fine, basic and a little cramped but I've slept in worse. The thing that had our group slightly worried (and considering it was a group of guys on a stag weekend, that takes something...) was that it seemed like a fire hazard waiting to happen and getting out of the place from the top floor looked nearly impossible. The showers were terrible, but that might have been different or better on other floors. All in all, I'd hesitate to recommend this place to someone else, but the location is good though, and hostels are hard to come by in Utrecht. 2.5 stars overall because of location, so a 3 on average.

Sam I Am I attended a wedding which was held here and afterwards the guests slept over. The major drawback for independent travellers is that it's hard to get to. You pretty much have to have a car. So if you are thinking of staying here but want to hang out in the city of Utrecht most of the time, choose someplace else. However if you want to stay in a fantastic typical old Dutch mansion in the middle of green fields, canals and trees, and have some peace and quiet, this is the place! Service was good, but as the entire place was rented, I can't really say how it normally is. All in all, I would recommend this place, especially to couples looking for a nice, quiet getaway near Utrecht. Preferably with own transport.
