Our Hostel

Unique Container Hostel in Groningen

Rebel Rebel Hostel

Rebel Rebel Hostel Groningen is the city’s first container hostel! Built upon principles of upcycling and sustainability, Rebel Rebel rests on the grounds of a now-defunct sugar factory, providing an industrial ambiance and tranquility just outside the city centre.

Rebel Rebel Hostel Groningen was created to be a home away from home where travelers from near and far can meet, eat, drink, sleep, and enjoy weekly events. Pluck fresh herbs from our garden and cook up something mean in the kitchen. Sunbathe and swim at the canalside beach. Grab a local beer from the bar and swap stories with fellow Rebels in the courtyard. Hang out in the communal living room and play board games. Breakfast is served every morning so you can ponder life’s more important morning questions.

About the area: 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.

Waterloo Sunset

Waterloo Sunset

The Rebel dorms are detached containers. The same applies for 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 (if you don’t have seasoned hippie feet). Rebel Rebel Hostel Groningen is sustainable. This means the toilets in Waterloo Sunset are flushed with the water we’ve collected from the showers. Bring your scented shower gel and don’t pee in the shower!
