Europe’s Famous Hostels Welcomes Strowis Hostel in Utrecht, Netherlands

Posted at:20 May, 2017 in EFH News

Europe’s Famous Hostels began as a group of 5 famous top-rated hostels back in 1995 and named themselves “The Famous Five”. Over the last 20 years budget traveling has taken off and due to huge demand for the “new concept” budget and stylish accommodation there was a need to expand. The team searched high and low throughout some of Europe’s most electrifying cities and found hostels that matched Famous Hostel’s standards and ethos: safe, fun, and the best experience.

In 2001 The Famous Five re-launched themselves as Europe’s Famous Hostels, and have been expanding ever since. In the last 14 years Europe’s Famous Hostels has had around 50 new members get involved and join their passionate team making it a unique network spanning Europe. Each hostel is an independent hostel assuring to travellers an authentic, local experience in each of our locations. Staying with Europe’s Famous Hostels means a safer and smoother journey through Europe with guidance and support along the way.

Nowadays Europe´s Famous Hostels is an association with a group of 50 independently run hostels from all around Europe who group together to promote each other and create a community in the hostel world. Where a Europe’s Famous Hostel has not yet been selected, the brand strives to provide travellers with the best option that each of the 200 most-searched for cities have to offer.

Now is the time to welcome Famous Hostels’ newest member – Strowis Hostel in the charming city of Utrecht in The Netherlands. There’s also other two Famous Hostels in the country – Flying Pig Uptown in Amsterdam and The ROOM Hostel in Rotterdam.

Strowis Hostel reflects everything that Famous Hostels defend as their mission: award winning, safe, and have the best ratings and reviews from independent backpackers.

The Hostel opened doors in 1998 and is located in a listed 17th century building – considered by the locals as the first and most famous hostel in the city. Strowis is located in the old medieval centre of the city of Utrecht. The inner city with the Dom Tower and the Cathedral has a pleasant atmosphere and is famous for its outdoor cafés along the old canals.

The ground-floor is Strowis’ heart, the foyer and the garden, where guests can have breakfast, read or just chat. From the foyer you’ve got a good view on the mind-blowing garden. Guests can rest here near the pond. There is of course free wi-fi and a computer in the foyer you can surf and mail. Our fully equipped kitchen is open to all guests, bring your own is more than welcome! There is also a small library which also contains travel information, and another book-exchange corner.

Strowis stands for sustainability, a do-it-yourself mentality, international atmosphere, culture and flexibility. These values are present in attention to customers, physical location (building, garden and furniture), the products used and the atmosphere in common areas.

The team organizes regularly cultural events, laying then the space and context for the prefect interaction between locals and guests. Strowis Sunday afternoon concert series are well known for relaxed atmosphere and musical diversity: singer-songwriters, reggae, pop, balkan, afro, latin, Americana, roots all in a semi-acoustic setting. On concert day there is always a vegan meal, which guests can share with musicians and staff members. Next to music Strowis always hosts art exhibitions, with new art every two months.
