4 nights at the Pig Uptown. I absolutely loved it. Super friendly staff, clean rooms. A socket and a bedside lamp at each bed was very good. Stayed in a six bed dorm and a three bed dorm, both very good. Comfortable bed. Great showers, a lot of them so no queue in the morning. Nice breakfast for free with...

Spent 5 nights here on my trip to Amsterdam and I couldn't have liked it more. Awesome location, the Vondelpark area is the most beautiful part of the town in my opinion and here you are just 2 steps away from an afternoon or a late night walk at the park. If you are a coffee lover check out the...

Only stopped for 1 night (which was a shame!) and enjoyed our experience. Staff are so helpful and lovely! The place is awesome and has a great vibe constantly :) Had a private room with a comfy double bed and complimentary toiletries and water which was a nice touch compared to other hostels. Quiet, clean facilities, kitchen for personal cooking,...

Amsterdam was my first stop on my Euro tour (I'm still on it) and it was my first experience staying in a hostel - and I loved it! The staff were all incredibly polite, knowledgeable, funny and welcoming. The hostel itself is good, it has a nice bar (with a decent happy hour), an enclosed smoking area & it was...

I travelled here alone, looking to party and meet people. I was extremely happy here. The bar and smoking room are so fun, great spots to meet people. Location is great, right near Vondelpark and Leidensplein. The staff was very friendly (Awa, Rowen, James, Maddy... the list goes on). The stairs are certainly a small challenge, but you get used...

We stayed there for 4 nights and it was a blast. What we liked most about it is the fact that there's a kitchen where you can cook your meals. Breakfast is included and the kitchen allows you to take a rest for lunch and dinner (and save a good amount, considering you can go to a supermarket and cook...

Its a good hostel where you can been with groups of people in same room,6 bunker beds in 1 room with sharing comfort room and shower room. The hostel environment is good. It has bar and smoking area most of the attractions are near to the hostel. So one of the best cheap place to be.

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
