“Great place at a great price!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

I have no regrets staying here. Highly recommended.

Rooms are very clean and new. The staff are very friendly. They told me how to get around the city and visit the attractions. Self-service kitchen is available.

I had a triple bed dorm. You can choose your own bed on a first come first served. Can be quite scary if you are left with the highest one but there are ladders.

They have a strict no noise policy at night, which gives everyone a good sleep till morning. Note that windows in the room cannot be opened. They said that it is the design of the building but there are ventilation systems in the room so you will not suffocate inside. It can get a bit stuffy after a warm day though but things will get better at night.

Showers are really good! Security is decent.

Very convenient location. Keep up the good work and maintenance of the place!

Room Tip: Try to check in earlier to reserve your bed at the lowest or middle bunk level if you don't like...

King Kool is a great place for staying in The Hague. Rooms are new (the hostel opened this year), extremely clean, young, comfortable. I was there with my siblings, we had a triple room with toilet. They have a nice kitchen and you can also have a nice beer in the bar, very cheap! Beds and blankets are super comfy. The location is very convenient, 15 minutes walk to HS Station, 2 minutes from Grote Markt, shopping area…
The staff is very friendly :) and you can meet new people in the common areas, so it is everything you're looking for when going abroad for holidays! I highly recommend!

Room Tip: When staying in the rooms on the Prinsegracht side, you may listen the tramway in the very early mor...

Having helped organize a trip to the Hague on a student budget, this is certainly the cheapest hostel available, and has really great facilities and very friendly staff. Not to mention really well designed with some original and fantastic artwork.

King Kool is, as of this post, the cheapest accommodation in the Hague and provides amazing amenities such as a fully stocked kitchen, great showers, clean linens, and very friendly staff. The hostel is geared more towards groups since the rooms are bunk beds and could be awkward if full of strangers. The location is very central to a number of tourist areas like the Grotemarkt and is about 15 minutes walk from the Hague Centraal Station. It's a really comfortable place and the staff work very hard to keep it clean and accessible so definitely check this place out if you're staying at the Hague!
