King Kong Hostel is a place that attracts travelers from all over the world. But also, international talent. Our team consists of artist, culture-junkies, food lovers and adventurers with a story to tell.  But even with all these backgrounds, we share a genuine love for the hostel culture and meeting people from all over the world. We are open, honest, entrepreneurial, collaborative, helpful, dedicated and in-tune with what’s going on around us.

As a team we have a collective aspiration to improve the local community. This is done through various initiatives, collaborations and random acts of kindness. If one monkey can make a difference, together we can change the game!

We are proud to see how some people, that work with us, outgrow us and move on to do even bigger things, like Matthijs, who became the general manager of Sparks Hostel; Hassan, who set up his own city tours company “Rotterdam Pages”; and Maxime, who created her own PR agency “Girl Power”, just a few examples of what’s cooking at King Kong Hostel.
