3BE Backpackers Bed and Breakfast

There is something for everyone here!
In short, this is how we describe our hostel and Eindhoven’s lively centre.

We are two friends, Franklin and Michel, running a beautiful hostel and making of this an extension of our lives, what means have our pets around is included; Roos our lovely dog, Mrs. No Balls an incredible black and white cat, a turtle and a bird.

Our hostel is equipped with everything our guests might need. Our own years of experience backpacking around the Netherlands and abroad mean that we know what is important when it comes to comfort and service.

Our location in the centre of Eindhoven means that everything is within easy reach. The Parktheater and the Van Abbe museum are within walking distance. It takes just 5 minutes to reach the modern centre of Eindhoven, a student area with its many shops, restaurants, bars not to mention the beautiful landscape that you meet along the way.

Take a look at our pictures in order to get a feel for the atmosphere in our hostel. And maybe you will want to become a volunteer, too.
We look forward to seeing you at 3BE!
Michel and Franklin

We are our own staff, what makes the work daily pretty busy but we always have time to spend with guests. We love to welcome travelers and help them to get the best of Eindhoven and the Netherlands` culture.

Honestly, I felt privileged by this volunteering. I did cleaning and reception work and learned a lot in both. The job is simple to learn and dynamic enough that you don't even see time pass. The hosts are collaborative, the volunteers' room is private, spacious and comfortable, working hours and free days are respected and you will have plenty of free time to enjoy! : ) thank you hosts and dear volunteers, with you it was much more fun! 🐢 🐶 🇳🇱 👯‍♂️ ✨🌷🤍

This was my second time volunteering in at 3BE hostel in Eindhoven, and I am so happy I came back! Michel and Franklin are very helpful and generous hosts. The room they have for volunteers is spacious and private, the shifts give you lots of time to enjoy your travels. I made great friends with all of my fellow volunteers, and had so much fun seeing new parts of the Netherlands!
