If you need to store your suitcase or luggage during the day, of course, we are able to help.
If in addition to luggage storage, if you need to use our groundfloor services such as the kitchen, showers, tea/coffee and Wi-Fi you can take advantage of our LATE CHECK-OUT. For € 5 you can use all these.

Each bed has a locker/drawer in each room for personal use, and hope that you will use it. These are numbered the same as your bed. But do not use the locker/drawer of another guest, please.
For security of your belongings, this drawer must be locked with a padlock. We do not provide padlocks and recommend bringing one yourself. If you do not have a lock, you can, of course, buy one at the hostel at arrival for € 3. You buy the lock, you take it and then it’s yours to keep for your next stay.
It is very easy to park near and at our hostel. Right in front of the hostel, you will find a public parking that is hardly used. On the off chance that it is full, the streets adjacent to the hostel are usually empty and easy to find a parking space. No worries!
Of course, you can! However, when booking, make sure to make a note in your reservation. During peak season, it can though sometimes be difficult and we cannot always guarantee it. Do not worry though as when we get a reservation for multiple beds we always try to put you in the same room.
All of our shared rooms are mixed, and we cannot guarantee that the shared room will be 100% female. However, we will try to put girls together in the same room when requested.
