hostel the hague the golden stork


The Golden Stork is named after the bird on The Hague’s coat of arms and is founded by two local brothers from The Hague: Dennis and Marcel.

 "We started the hostel after our backpacking adventures, so we know that a hostel is more than just a place to sleep. That is why we keep it small, informal and cosy."

It is the perfect place to meet fellow travelers, while the staff is happy to have nice conversations as well. We are happy to help you with all your questions. So whether you will be here for a day or two, you are planning a sightseeing and shopping trip or if you are a party animal looking to discover the city’s nightlife; The Golden Stork is the place to stay. You can of course also hang out at our bar, where we have quality coffee and a delicious collection of (local) craft beers.
