“Bunker beds”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great experience: having a great weekend in Haarlem and staying in a beautiful designed dorm with 14 bunker beds! We all loved our room. We were happy to book the whole room, so we could enjoy our stay with only us. Nice atmosphere, service and simple but good breakfast! Certainly one to tell to friends or visit again for a different occasion.

Super clean, friendly helpful staff with great beds and nice linen. I'd stay here again over a place in Amsterdam due to the ease and low price of public transportation to Amsterdam and the smaller village feel. Easier access to all in The Netherlands than fighting crowds. Personal

This is a very well presented hostel with high standards and apparently very good soundproofing. The location is superb, quiet but very close to everything. The staff could not have been more helpful, breakfast was good and the ambiance and decor was cool. We liked it a lot - and we are relatively senior folk. Good for all ages, and families - but also groups in the dorms.

Room Tip: The first floor room on the front by the stairs was quiet enough for us, or maybe everyone was very...

Great location, great service, very, very clean, great selection of rooms. If you haven't figured it out by now I think this place is GREAT! This was my second time staying with Helllo I'm Local. This time I brought my aunt and uncle. We had the choice of many different places to stay but this is the most memorable place to choose. Their staff is wonderful and helpful, their location is within walking distance of many of the main attractions.

Had a very enjoyable stay at this hostel/hotel. I stayed in the dorm style room - the 8 person - and it was super clean, well organized, and comfortable (except the wood ladders to the bunk hurt my feet, but look great!). Im no longer student age - and stayed in many many hostels when I was that age - but everyone is just cool, and friendly. Especially the staff who are just so helpful, kind, and considerate. So...this is a great hostel - if you don't like the idea of sharing a room, then book a private with some friends, or stay at a hotel in Haarlem (3x the price). For me...this worked very well for me, and I got great suggestions of places to visit and see.

I stayed at Hello I'm Local during my last visit to Haarlem. It's located in a charming old neighborhood that is near the River Spaarn and within walking distance from Grote Square. Using the public transportation is made easy and also just a short walk away. There is always something to do in Haarlem! There are many great shops and restaurants (I recommend Delphi for authentic Greek food). Of course, Amsterdam is just a 20 minute train ride away!

My room was great! A bit small, but perfect for me as I was traveling solo. There is a small private courtyard with a fireplace and tables with seating. There is also a small kitchen you can use with everything you might need including a fridge and microwave oven. They even offer a laundry service! The staff was very helpful and friendly. They truly made me feel welcome!
I will return to Hello I'm Local for my next visit to Haarlem!

Room Tip: The room I had (VOC Room) has a window facing the street/front of the building. There will be some...
