Last week “Zoho”, the area in Rotterdam where our hostel is located, was the stage of the event “Open Zoho”. Many companies opened their doors that day and showed their work. Zoho is a part of the city in development, and gets more and more beautiful and attractive. Plenty of artists, architects and leisure activities around. Also in our hostel it was open day.
Three guys and two girls from Mesh Print Club painted our window.
Open Mind Rotterdam and Youth Information Center JIP organised the event “Nothing but Love”. It was the closing event of a campaign against cyber bullying, and part of the bigger international ‘No hate speech movement’. Postcards with guidelines about behaviour on the world wide web were collected and signed by many youngsters and handed to policians of Rotterdam, to ask attention for this topic. Spoken word artists and AfroJet Swag gave a nice swing to evening.
The last two weeks we changed a lot in our Hostel. Now we have a comic dorm and a nature dorm. See the result.
Enjoy us 😉
The new season is coming and, of course, Mafkees is changing too. Proof number one, our shiny and new flyer.
If you like it? Why wait and see?!! Take your Wacky Race and saw up at our Hostel, we are waiting for you!!!!

After being in Barcelona for the design week, the Urban Living Room is back in Rotterdam. This month you can enjoy this entirely blue living room in Hostel de Mafkees. Come over, sit back and relax.
We have very cool new mural in our building and we’ll celebrate it’s opening on August3 from 21.00-23.00. Check the website of Gallery Pepper for more info.
Mafkees is a word which is not really translatable in other languages. The closes we ever did get after long discussions at our bar was “Crazy sleeping beauty”.
And since we are still Crazy after all these years we are now offering beds for € 7,50 only on Monday – Wednesday. This offer is only for a limited period and only for a limited amount of beds. If they are full you pay the full € 12,50 a night. So make your reservation ASAP!
