Stayokay Rotterdam is right smack dab in the heart of Rotterdam, and guess where? The iconic Cube Houses, designed by the Dutch architect Piet Blom in 1984. These quirky houses perched on pylons are like the ultimate conversation starters. They’re a stone’s throw away from the Oude Haven, an historic hotspot that’s buzzing with bars, restaurants, and cafés. Oh, and did I mention the Blaak subway station is practically our neighbour? Talk about prime location!
Alright, so let’s talk digs. This Rotterdam hostel isn’t your average Joe. The uniquely-shaped rooms just soak up all the natural light. Wi-Fi reaches everywhere of course, to keep you plugged in. Oh, and breakfast? Included. Feeling extra hungry? No worries, there are extra meals up for grabs at the bar too.
