We stayed only one night. It was amazing for the kids to overnight in a real castle. The service was perfect and everything was as we expected. Unfortunatelly in the room they didn't empty the garbage so we were not really happy with the cleaness of the room.

Staying in a real castle was absolutely amazing for our family! The building and grounds are beautiful and very lovingly renovated. The room was a bit disappointing as it featured a glum view of the inner ward and was a bit noisy, but the staff kindly provided earplugs for the light sleeper. The meals were adequate, although dinner was bit too pricey for what it was. The staff were very friendly and it is a great place to bump into other travelers from all over the world.

We stay in this Hostel most years and always look forward to it. The Hostel & location are stunning. Please remember you are staying in a "real" castle, there are no lifts, lots of stairs and you will carry your bags a long way to your rooms! However just think about the history.

We had a 6 bed dorm room in the castle with 3 bunk beds and our own bathroom for 3 people. I think all the private rooms are dorm style so if you book a private room you get the whole dorm. The rooms have names rather than numbers. We were in room Fabian. It was a bit rustic but a novelty experience that we all enjoyed. You get your bed linens when you check in and you make your own bed. Towels need to be rented for €2 each with €1 returned to you when you return the towel. No soap unless you ask so bring your own. We felt like we were camping but we were in this incredible castle. It’s old, floors creak, everything is a bit worn, but clean. Breakfast was all cold but very tasty. Really nice fresh breads and jams with lots of cold meats and cheeses, boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee and juice. The best part is eating in the beautiful old rooms of the castle common areas. In the evening there is a small on-site bar and you can borrow board games. The staff was so warm, welcoming and lovely. Truly the best. The location is a bit far outside Amsterdam but it’s possible to reach the city in about an hour by public transport with a bit of walking, a bus and train. The train costs €7 each way and the bus costs €4.25 each way, so you may want to factor that cost in to your stay if you are planning to spend time in the city. Note the castle closes and locks at midnight so if you arrive later than that you would be locked out. All in all we loved the experience.

This is the first time my family stayed in a hostel with some surprise. The staffs were friendly and helpful except they never open the access to the garden as it was described. The Castle and the gardens are beautiful.
