Voted one of the best hostels in the Netherlands, it’s no wonder why guests end up staying for weeks on end. Situated on a residential street in the centre, the key to Ani & Haakien’s success is its cosy, old-school backpacker atmosphere, not to mention the idyllic garden. Plush sofas, plump cushions, potted plants, wind chimes and blooming flowers make it the perfect little inner city escape. Whether or not you’re a guest, there’s always free freshly brewed coffee waiting. Sit under the veranda and enjoy the peaceful vibes, or join in on a game of cards and listen to some great travel stories. To enter the hostel, just ring the doorbell and enjoy a lovely piece of heaven.
