History of Hostelle

Hostelle was founded by Bianca Brasdorp. Having worked as a Marketer for most of her life she wanted a change. The main reason was that she wanted to do something creative and have a job that involved lots of interaction with people. After brainstorming she decided to start a hostel. Because there wasn’t a hostel for women yet in Amsterdam she thought that it would be a good idea to offer women and girls a safe, beautiful, fun and clean place to stay in Amsterdam. Little that she knew that a hotel/hostel was one of the most difficult things to start in Amsterdam! She stumbled upon an office building that was vacant and that was ideal to turn into a hostel. After dealing with government regulations, estate owners, and constructors she finally was able to finish Hostelle and open in march 2012.
