The hostel hosts inclusive social events in its sustainable restaurant and other communal spaces, making it a great place to meet new people. Guests have the option to stay in affordable private pods or luxury rooms. One of the highlights of the hostel is the restaurant, the hostel also has a library and different areas to chill or explore, which adds to the unique experience of staying in an amazing building. The hostel is located a bit far from the city center, so guests need to get a bike or take the metro, which is a 5-minute walk away, to get around. However, the hostel is only a 10-15 minute walk to the ferry, which runs every 5 minutes, making it convenient for visiting the Eye Film Museum and A'DAM Lookout.
