V VOLLENHOVENSTR 62, Rotterdam
After years of travelling and dreaming Mirjam Verschoor and Monique Segeren started their ultimate dream in 2005. Opening a backpackers hostel in their own beloved Rotterdam. In 2006 the ideal property was found: a historical building near the river Maas and Erasmus bridge. The renovation of the building has been done pretty much on their own. A contractor did the work on the historical outside of the building. On the inside the two young women did most of the work themselves with the help of family and friends. For the thematic design of the rooms, they worked with students of the Artemis Interior and Styling Academy.
