Christened after the stork that stands on the Hague’s coat of arms, this cosy urban hostel offers travellers the chance to stay in the hustle and bustle of the city’s historic centre. Due to its location on Bierkade, many of the Hague’s most famous landmarks and cultural hotspots are within walking distance, making it perfect for anyone who is eager to discover the city’s history, nightlife or art scenes during their stay. Though there are plenty of popular hangouts nearby, guests at The Golden Stork can also enjoy their downtime in the hostel’s on-site bar (with canal-side terrace), which serves an impressive selection of Dutch and Belgian craft beers. There are five dormitories available inside the hostel, each of which is equipped with all the essentials and between six to 15 comfy bunk beds.

Almost every night of the week, Hostel the Hague’s bar hosts live jazz concerts where musicians perform to guests and anybody else that happens to stop by. Due to its welcoming communal vibe, and location near the city’s bustling Grote Markt Square, which is lined with bars and restaurants, the hostel is an ideal destination for travellers who are eager to meet other people during their time in the Hague. The hostel has one private double room, while its other lodgings are all shared and fitted with four or six bunk beds.

Located within the Hague’s historic centre, near many tram stops and other local amenities, this happening hostel was founded by globe-trotting surfer Jan de Koning, who wanted to create a place where like-minded travellers could rest, hang out and discover the city together. Aside from affordable rooms and shared dormitories, the hostel also features several social spaces, including a cinema, a well-stocked bar and two spacious terraces, where guests can chill out or meet new people during their downtime. Every room available inside the hostel is tailored around a unique theme, ranging from ‘Dutch Design’ to ‘Urban Camping’, and each one is equipped with anywhere between one (double) bed to 16 beds.
