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.

I really enjoyed staying in this hostel. I feel like a lot of the bad reviews here come from people who had too high a standard, remember it is a hostel, not a hotel. I was welcomed by the staff, and shown to my room. Staff were helpful and showed me how to get to places, explained trams, one guy...

location is excellent, and the rooms and bathroom are ok for the price. There´s no locker or anywhere to leave your things, and actually someone stole the cellphones of 2 guys in the room next door. Breakfast is extremely basic and they charge you for leaving your luggage in receptions after check out, even if it is for a couple...

The location is awesome especially to people who like to experience the night life of Amsterdam. The bunk beds didn't have actual stairs so it was a bit hard to climb to the upper bed. There was kind of noisy although I'm afraid it was mainly due to me and my friend (:D) who arrived in the middle of the...
