ABOUT

Want to make the most of your stay in Rotterdam?

Hostel De Mafkees welcomes you. If you’re looking for budget accommodation within walking distance from Rotterdam city centre and train station: look no further. You just stumbled across one of the biggest and cheapest hostel in town.
Being big doesn’t just mean we offer lots of beds – which we do. On top of that however, we  offer a spacious building with lots of features to keep yourself busy on those rainy days. Chill out in our comfy couches, grab a beer at our bar, shoot some pool, do some work-out on the hometrainer, visit the stores: it’s all there.
Not much for staying in? Go explore Rotterdam! We are part of Use-it and made it our business to know as much about what’s going on in Rotterdam as possible. Fortunately for you, we make handy pocket sized booklets, do-it-yourself tours and maps which we can give you…for free!

Hostel De Mafkees: your home base in Rotterdam!

What was and is
Although Hostel De Mafkees is brand new – open since July 2013 -, it’s history dates back further. For the last 11 years De Mafkees has been a summertime-only hostel in an old ice-skating rink just behind Rotterdam Central Station. Unfortunately, due to city planning we had to leave this location. We kept the good memories, moved on, swapped the ice-skating rink for a former school building and right now De Mafkees is back on track, all-year round this time. And no worries: school’s out!
