Very nice and cheap hostel in a very animated street. Well situated, you can take the tram, the subway or even have a walk from central station. A lot of bars, restautant, coffeshops and parks around. A very nice place for a weeknd

This is a very basic hostel to say the least. Slept in a room with 13 other people which was a sweat box-feet at heads and dirty brown pillows with unchanged bed clothes. This is only an intro. I had to sleep with my head beside the toilet door to avoid feet. There was one bathroom between 14 people which...

Location is the only good thing about this hostel. Staff overcharged us for our room key deposit. We explained what had happened but the guy at the desk would not refund us. He initially attempted not give us our deposit back at all. He then tried to return only 1/4 of the deposit. Eventually he gave us half of our...

I went on the craziest weekend.. when Amsterdam was hosting their annual ADE event (Amsterdam dance event) It was difficult because all hostels raised their prices and you couldn't get a refund if you had to cancel (which I tried because my trip had to change). However I think it was only because of that weekend event. The staff is...

A nice little hostel down town. Friendly staff, clean, free coffee 24/7 and breakfast included (white bread with various spreads). My only complain would be that there are no boxes/lockers for your stuff but you can get it stored at the reception. Sweet house cat

I stayed here for 3 nights in November. I thought the location was fab,not right in the centre, yet right near the tram stop and near some lovely bars and restaurants. We did walk straight past it a few times as it's just a door in the middle of the street! The staff were lovely and gave us a warm...

Had a great sleep here. Took us as a walk in for not too much money and our room was quiet, en suite, warm and roomy. The staff were friendly and helpful and the social area was great with a place to eat and chill. No real kitchen though. Also free breakfast and hot drinks. Right in the centre too.

Recently stayed in this hostel. Not very clean. When I arrived a window in one of the dormitories was broken. It had been broken for two days apparently. Staff were very good. Roman was the best. Recommended if your on a tight budget. Nice city Amsterdam is.

Good place to meet people, i met a few solo travellers. So central! Staff is friendly and cleanliness is fine, they clean the rooms everyday day. Nice space to chill and eat some food. Coffee shop just next to it.
