Hostel Roots is a one-of-a-kind, first and only 5-star hostel in the always-buzzing city of Tilburg. Started by the local couple Koen & Marion who traveled the country and world together experiencing many levels of city accommodations, it was decided with love and travel in mind, that they would go back to their roots in Tilburg, in The Netherlands to create a beautiful, affordable, comfortable and unique hostel. The concept for Hostel Roots was born. Hostel Roots offers 80 beds, spread throughout 12 different room types, which will all live and breathe a unique theme belonging to the extraordinary city of Tilburg. Room options will range from private rooms with your own bathroom to a private room with a shared bathroom. And of course, dormitories, they will have shared bathrooms. So if you are looking for a place to stay during a festival, a surprising weekend as a couple, celebrate a bachelor party, reserve for a business-outing, book a sports team outing, or are you a student, family, anything else: Hostel Roots is the place for you. The easiest way to visit Hostel Roots is by train or car. The Central Station is just a 2 minute walk from the hostel. If you want to visit us by car, we have private parking spots which you can book for €12,50 a car per night. Tilburg is a city with 212.000 inhabitants with an active student population and 125 bars and restaurants. You’ll also find the largest Dutch music venue “013” and the Koningshoeven Brewery – La Trappe. In addition, Tilburg has a rich cultural museums, including the Pont Museum and the Textile Museum. There are many internationally recognized events held here like Roadburn, Festival Mundial, Incubate, the Tilburg Fair (largest from the Benelux) and Tilburg Ten Miles. You will also find beautiful scenery as the “Oisterwijkse Forest & Fens” and the “Loons- & Drunense Dunes” that has stunning walking, cycling and mountain biking trails and attractions like the “Beekse Bergen” (wildlife park) and Efteling (theme park). Despite all this beauty and fun in Tilburg, the city was still missing a hostel. Hostel Roots will be THE place in Tilburg for an affordable, surprising and lovely stay.

So to start off; the staff was super friendly and helpful. I arrived at the hostel, made up my bed and went out. When i came back and went to bed around 01:00 i saw a bedbug walking on the frame and had a bit spot on my leg. I googled what bedbugs looked like and compared it and it was the same. Now stuff like this can happen, it's a hostel with shared bedrooms, its cheap, and you get what you pay for. I did not sleep in the bed, and sat on the couch in the hostel lobby from 0100 until 0730 and did not really get to sleep, this was a bad experience. There was no staff at the hostel so I immediately sent an email and got a call from the owner in the morning. He asked me if i had taken pictures and asked for pictures of the bites on my leg, which i sent. He also promised a refund, which I have not seen yet, and didn't respond to my messages anymore. To be honest I dont really feel taken seriously as this really did ruin my evening. It is what it is, maybe I was unlucky, but I did not feel comfortable.

I stayed here after a work shift and having to work on the next day was the perfect option. The beds are super comfortable with thick blankets, you also have plus next to your bed and blackout curtains. The best was the welcome by the night receptionist he is really fun and nice. I’ll definitely stay another time ☺️ Maybe it will be nice to have soaps in the bathrooms just because of COVID.

The best Hostel I've ever stayed in! The Roots has excellent rooms, good prices, a really cool bar and a very welcoming staff! The Hostel still has a very good location, close to the Tilburg Station, the city center and several restaurants.

This place is great and very close to the train station and much more reasonably priced than hotels in town. Because it's a hostel it has mainly young people as clientele but we near seniors fit in very nicely. You can get private rooms with or without a bathroom and of course there are dorms. Very nice staff and you can rent bikes to get around. We had a private bathroom and I must say the shower was the best we've had in the Netherlands!

I stayed in a private room with en suite shower and toilet facilities. Staff gave a friendly welcome. The room was clean, temperature easily regulated, wasn't too noisy. The hostel is close to the station and restaurants.
