Sleeping in the Cube Houses

Always been curious about what it's like to sleep in a cube house? Indulge that curiosity at Stayokay Rotterdam! The higgledy-piggledy art of Piet Blom has been the definitive eye catcher of the city. Also discover the other highlights of the city; the Market Hall and the Old Harbour are just around the corner.

In the hostel

Stayokay Rotterdam is located right in the center near Blaak train station. In the bar you can have a delicious drink and meet other travelers. In the restaurant you can enjoy a hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can book a shared or private room. And the cool thing is: each room is unique because you're sleeping in a work of art! Did you know that Stayokay Rotterdam also collaborates with local artists?

Nice tip: spend the night in the trendy Cube Studio for 2 people!

Route & location

Public transport

To the very distinctive Cube Houses

Public transport

The Rotterdam hostel is located just around the corner of the Rotterdam Blaak railway station. You will see the Cube houses immediately when exiting the station. When travelling via Rotterdam Central Station, you can travel by either train or tram (line 21 or 24) to Rotterdam Blaak. Once you see the distinctive yellow cubes, follow the directions under the following heading.

On foot

There are small squares in between the cubes. As you walk upwards between the cubes, you will cross lots of these squares and you will be led automatically to Stayokay at number 85. Don’t worry, just follow the path upwards and you’ll get there; we promise!

By car

We do advise our visitors to come by public transport

If you do come by car, there is paid parking in the streets around the hostel. We advise you to park in the parking garage "Oude Haven". To do so, hold on to Burgemeester van Walsumweg 718 in your navigation. There are charging stations in the area around the hostel where you can charge your electric car.

You can also use a number of Park and Ride (P+R) car parks in Rotterdam. For directions see

Local hotspots

Rotterdam is a truly metropolitan city, but the hostel's location makes everything easily accessible. Discover the Markthal, go look at art in the Kunsthal or settle in somewhere in the cosy Oude Haven. Also be sure not to miss out on the creative Witte de Withstraat, it's amazing!
