The atmosphere in Bob's was friendly and almost homely and it felt very safe there. The staff for the most part were friendly and helpful expect for one of the male members of staff who didn't seem to have stepped outside the front door because he couldn't point us to the right direction to anywhere we wanted to go... However,...

The hostel is located just a few minutes away from Dam Square. The prices should be a bit lower as it is a hostel after all. The rooms are clean, there is enough hot water and clean sheets. I liked the reception/bar area a lot. It is only for the customers and depending on the person on shift, you are...

I have never stayed in a hostel or traveled alone before and I think this wasn't bad at all for a first experience; super clean, cheap and friendly enough people. And no one cares if you'd rather sit in the reception getting stoned than have organised fun on a pub crawl or whatever.

Myself & my friend stayed in a 12 bed female dorm. The room was spotless & spacious. the WiFi was fast. Have no complaints about the place at all. I Would definitely...

I was traveling alone and stayed at Bob's on the recommendation of a guy I was sitting next to on the train from Hamburg. The location was great- near the train station and right in the center of the city. There were just a couple beds left when I arrived and I ended up in the largest of the rooms...

The rooms and toilets were clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers decent. The staff were very helpful and the hostel was in a great location. I could easily walk to all the major cites and there was a grocery store right down the road. Most of all the prices were reasonable for all of the above and i...

A few friends and I knew not to expect much when coming to bobs, however this was way past our league. They were doing construction and knocking out windows in our room and there was depris everywhere.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
