Hello I'm Local

My hostel is a great place to experience local life, culture and history. All my rooms are themed and provide background information on typical Dutch places, things and people. We are all open to do language exchange, we teach you Dutch or help improve your English.

I have a team of 10 locals which are all enthusiastic about where they are from (Haarlem! :). We are like a family and welcome you to join us. You will meet people here from all over the world. We don't have TV's so we encourage our guests to interact. You are welcome to join social activities, like the Local Bikeride, Pubcrawl or Beertasting

No puedo ni comenzar por una cosa para expresar mi alegría, aprendizaje y diversión que tuve en el Hostel. El equipo está compuesto por las mejores personas que he conocido, son amables, respetuosos y cariñosos. De verdad que está experiencia ha sido de lo mejor que he hecho. Se cumplen las horas de trabajo, y todo lo que entrega el anfitrión, de hecho lo que obtienes a cambio es más, mucho más que comida y alojamiento, luego de la estadía, si sabes aprovechar tienes una familia en Haarlem. Gracias a todos, Saskia, Melle, Nikki, Lotte y Twan por todo, love you.
