Hostel Roots

Tilburg is a very diverse, but small city. There are a lot of international students here and there is always something fun to do. We'll make sure you will feel at home - at home in Tilburg and at home in the hostel.

We are the first and only hostel in Tilburg and you can be part of this life changing experience.

You will learn all the ins- & outs of running a hostel: front- & back-office, marketing, bar, kitchen, housekeeping and much more. We host people from all over the world and although we are Dutch, the main language spoken in the hostel is English. So if you are looking to improve your English and work within an energetic, fun and genuine team which feels more like a family, then this is the best place to be! :)

We (Koen, 39 years & Marion 37 years) are a couple for over 10 years, we have 2 kids. We are from Tilburg, but we have also lived in Rotterdam, Amsterdam & The Hague. In 2016 we moved back to our roots, Tilburg to follow our dream; opening the first hostel in the city. We work in the hostel along side a small team which also includes 6 work&stayers who live in the hostel. With the work&stayers we have a small dutch team working in the reception. We all speak English with each other :) We want our hostel to feel like home and want our guests to soak up in the "world" of Tilburg. The hotspots and typical highlights from Tilburg are shown in the rooms and the building itself.

I don’t know what I can say that hasn’t already been said! Roots is a truly great place and if you’re lucky enough to be able to go, then go! You’ll have an absolute blast guaranteed. Julia and the team are all angels, they really make sure that you feel welcome! We have a lot of fun, we eat a lot of good food and I wish I was still there!

Absolutely loved Roots. The team really makes it worthwhile. I highly recommend staying for at least 2 months. you build such deep connections and friendships. Ive definitely created long term memories and friends through roots. Julia is great with taking care of the volunteers and making sure all your needs are met. Koen and Marion who own Roots, are very open and welcoming. All in all Roots is an unforgettable experience! highly recommend :))

Going to Hostel Roots has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Roots is a place full of super good energy and people. They treat you very well since the first moment.

About the work, it is easy, anyone can do it. Schedules are well organized and flexible.
There is also Julia, the worker in charge of the volunteers, who will be always there to help and listen to you. She does a great job so that all the volunteers and staff can form a family.

Seriously, go to Roots, u will be part of an incredible team and u will learn a lot. You won't regret it. I now have a second home ♥
