These jokers cancelled my booking (which I booked well in advance at a cheap rate) four days before my trip. I suspect they end up "making up an excuse" when they're busy so they can cancel the cheap bookings, inorder to cash in on late pricey bookings. DON'T, and I really mean DON'T, book a room here. It's like amateur night, but everyday. Shameful

Have read a few reviews from people on here saying things like 'the youths at this hostel were high', 'should have lights off at 2200' etc etc. IT'S A YOUTH HOSTEL IN AMSTERDAM YOU IDIOTS, IF YOU WANT PEACE PAY 5X AS MUCH TO STAY IN A NEARBY HOTEL. Rant over, this was an excellent hostel for the money. At the north end of the Leidsegracht within a 20 minute walk of anywhere within the canal semi-circle inc. red light district, museums, coffeeshops, zoo etc. Stayed here for a week and didn't use a single tram. We booked out a 6-person private room for 4 nights (room 7) and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation. Would estimate the dorm to be around 150 sq. ft, with three bunk beds. This is not as claustrophobic as the other reviewers would have you believe, and by no means did i have anyone's feet in my face as some have suggested. Beds and room were cleaned to a good standard for a hostel, and the toilets and showers were cleaned every morning, although with so few serving so many people they could've probably used a clean twice a day. Communal smoking area was a great thing for me and our group, but if you're not a fan of the smell of cannabis this maybe an issue. Again, though, if you come to a hostel here expecting anything else you're just plain ol' dumb. It has hard benches (I presume to stop stoned tourists from passing out there), a wall-mounted TV with international channels and a vending machine, as well as a nice view over the Leidsegracht. There is also a fridge and microwave in the reception area (we were initially worried about people stealing from it, but our Chocomel survived). In all, if you're a cash-strapped tourist travelling alone or in a group with friends, this is practically ideal. For couples, people wanting a private holiday or people with a stick up their ass about weed - why the hell are you even looking at it?

Great location, a lot of late night food one street down ! We had a 6 bed mixed room and it was nice! There is not a lot of plugs so I was glad I brought my portable charger. There are lockers to put your bags and the rooms are cleaned daily. We stayed for 4 days and we had new roommates every night, which means that the room in empty most of the day between check in and check out if you want to sleep in ! The smoke room is a nice play to meet people. Would recommend !

We stayed here in Jan 2019. We had a ten bed dorm. Stairs very steep on arrival. Reception was very friendly. The room itself was tiny and had a sink and a shower. The shower had no curtain so bring a bikini of some sort! The room was clean enough and the hostel wasnt too loud. It cost about 20E per night which was good. The location is the best part of this hostel. Overall its basic but cheap and in a great spot of amsterdam!

First of all, I think the hostel should be called 'stairs'. You'll know what I mean when you arrive. They have friendly people at reception (ciao bella!) A nice (small, but nice) place to chill both for smokers and non-smokers. Very nice showers. All in all a clean and decent place in a good location. I'll be back! (P.s: I only give 4 stars, because there was so many people snorring! I know the hostel can't help this, but it was so annoying!) (P.p.s: they do sell earbuds along with a bunch of other stuff, candy and toothpaste and whatnot, so maybe I just should've gotten out of bed and bought some.)

It was a 10 room dorm. They need to establish stricter rules on the clients. Lights out at 2200 or 2300 hours. This means staff also. It's Amsterdam the vast majority of the youth here are high. They have 1 toilet for 10 people & 1 shower & sink for 10 people. They also have a double sink in the room. They need an external vent pulling cool air in and an internal removing hot stale mushy air. Beware bunks are short, I'm 5' 11.5" or less than 1.83 meters and feet & head hung over rail. Some of the staff was great, some had personality of a snail. Also there appears to be an electrical short in lighting. Overall a good location. A decent stay.

Perfect location, friendly staff, pleasant accommodation over all. Downsides are the bathrooms can be nearly constantly occupied and the main staircase is dangerously steap, it's one step away from being a ladder really. It is usually the case with central Amsterdam as the council encouraged building narrow but tall buildings, only in this case they've overdone themselves. Not much of a lounging area either. The rooms are great though and quite clean, and I'll say it again, the location and the views are amazing!

Simple and cool hostel, good location, clean. The most impressive part was the staff: they are friendly as I never have seen before, specially Mario! There are some stairs do CLIMB (ahahahah) but it’s on their booking information.

Stayed here for 3 nights this month. Cheap and cheerful, very comfy beds, good Wi-Fi, clean toilet areas. Only issues were that the room felt very cramped when all the beds were being used, and on the first night we had a member of staff come through our room dragging the rubbish with him, which made it smell awful for a while. Very steep stairs to get to reception, so be wary of that, and no communal area unless you want to smoke. But very near Dam Square and lots of pubs and bars, so can't complain
