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.

To came here was one of the best decisions I ever made. I needed to practice my English and this was the best place to do that. The hostel is great, the city is wonderful and the work is not really difficult. From Eindhoven you are close to every part of Netherlands (as well as Belgium) and you have a lot of trip-options to choice for your free days. About the work, I made cleaning and reception shifts and both were easy and even funny (especially the night shift). Both Michel and Franklin are great persons and they will help you in case you need.

So, what are you waiting for? Come here!

3BE is a hostel with a family and quiet atmosphere, perfectly organized, located in the center of Eindhoven and therefore close to multiple places and cities. The tasks are simple, the work schedules are the agreed ones, there is a lot of free time to do as you decide, and if you need something Michel and Franklin will advise and explain you.
Thank you for this experience and good learning. Totally recommendable.
