Rooms & Prices
Rebel Rebel Hostel is Groningen’s first container hostel. A unique, sustainable and generally just great hostel at a site which used to house a sugar factory. A stay with us offers a range of facilities such as yoga, bike/hike/boat trips, BBQ nights, beer-tasting events, games nights and campfires.
Rebel Rebel is a place which will feel like a home from home, with its cosy communal living room and bar where you’ll meet new hostel friends. You can cook your own meal in our shared kitchen using herbs you can pick from our own vegetable garden. In short, Rebel Rebel is a new and unique hostel experience in Groningen.
Additionally the former sugar factory site, where Rebel Rebel is located, is a developing site with many projects, events and festivals on the way. You can enjoy a meal at the 'Wolkenfabriek' ('Clouds Factory') and if you're in town to party at Paradigm or EM2, your Rebel bed is just a stone's throw away. And we can give you more tips about events and things to do in the great city of Groningen.
Our dorms are detached containers. The same applies for the Waterloo Sunset, our container which houses the sanitary facilities. So, since you have to leave your dorm/room to get to the showers or toilets, we advise bringing something like slippers and a bathrobe. The Waterloo Sunset is sustainable. This means we flush the toilets with the water we’ve collected from the showers. In other words, bring your scented shower gel and don’t pee in the shower!
Space, Jungle & Rock 'n Roll themed!
There are 3 large mixed dorms with 10 beds.

Kitchen & Livingroom
De most cosy spot in the hostel is the living room with the guest kitchen. Breakfast is served here and you can make yourself at home, cook your own meal or play a board game.
With our water saving showerheads, warm water heated by our pellet stove and flushing the toilets with collected shower water, we make our first steps to becoming a sustainable hostel.
From our hostel it's only a ten minute bike ride to the city centre. And because Groningen is "The World's Cycling City" offcourse we can not send you off by foot. So, rent a rebel bike for €5,00 a day.
In our little bar you can order drinks, like local beer, but also coffee and cake. You're more than welcome here even if you don't spend the night.
The charging couch is our dangerously nice sitting loungeseat , with sockets for charging your phone or laptop.
Offcourse you can stay connected with the rest of the world. But if you just want to use our hostel as your new #flexplek to study, you're also very welcome.
