Group Having Fun at Rebel Rebel Hostel Groningen


Walk or bike along a canal away from the city centre, cross over on a small pedestrian bridge, and you are in a neighbourhood-sized chunk of Groningen that used to all be part of a sugar factory. It’s currently a development site with many new projects, events, and festivals on the way. Paradigm and EM2 are celebrated nightclubs that attract partygoers from all over the Netherlands and beyond, and are just a stone’s throw away from your Rebel bed. ‘Wolkenfabriek’ (‘Clouds Factory’) is a fantastic spot to grab a bite. Rebel bicycles are available for rent, and we can point you in the right direction of all the other excitement Groningen has to offer.
