“I won't be coming back here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I won't be coming back to this youth hostel.

Our first impression was that we ended up in a nice hostel, but we quickly changed our minds.

One night in the youth hostel costs 25 euro. However, if you pay by credit/debit card, you have to pay 1 euro extra for "transaction costs". These so-called transaction costs have been abolished already a very long time ago. When we said we would pay cash then, there was also a problem as she didn't have any cash in the hostel and therefore couldn't return the difference when needed.

We didn't have any light in our room. When we mentioned this, it took a very long time before light bulbs were found to change the lights.

The bathrooms are unisex and extremely dirty. The locks on the bathroom doors do not close anymore.

I've been at hostel Breda couple of times a year for the past 5 years.The location is perfect.Public transport is right there, city center is within 5min. walk and a free parking place was always available.Rooms are clean and simple,you have everything you need to rest and see the city.If you're not after a luxury accommodation and prefer to spend your money outside the hotel, I would definitely recommend it.The staff is very nice and attentive, and I noticed that the rooms from inside are getting better every time I come.So if you've been there a while ago,it's worth coming again:)

Room Tip: If you contact the hostel in advance,you can let the staff know what type of room you're looking...

I have stayed in this Hostel many times and every single one of them has been awesome. There is always new and cool people to meet. Staff girls are beautiful and very helpful. Rooms are clean and very nice considering the low price. If you want to save some money and have a great time I would advise to stay there.

Room Tip: Always make a reservation before you go there, it will save you a lot of trouble in the busy season.

It's an old building with many many rooms with shared bathrooms, which is fine. However, our bed sheets had visible stains all over. After that, didn't notice anything else at all. This place would get you by if you we're a student with a tight budget but if you're a couple just do yourself a favour and get a hotel.

bredahostel, Owner at Breda Hostel, responded to this review, 4 July 2013
Dear Guest,

It is indeed an old monument building, dating back from 1884, which architecture reflects traditional Dutch style. I am sorry to hear you were uable to appreciate that or anything else after being disappointed about the stains on your bed sheets.

If during your stay you would have mentioned it, we would have gladly provided you with the new clean sheets.

Do not hesitate to contact me, would you decide to ever come back to Breda Hostel, and I will personally ensure that your stay would be better than the first time.

Kind Regards,

Olga Kokorina
