Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Value for money and in the perfect area if you want to hang around the red light area. Rooms all very clean and staff very friendly. Fresh towels and whatever needed in morning will be coming back. 20 mins walk from the train station plenty of food and bars local.

Being a solo female traveller I felt really safe at the accommodation with the provided lockers and private bathroom within the dorm. Being in a mixed dorm I felt fine and only experienced things that are out of the hostels control and typical hostel experiences. The staff were super friendly and reassuring they would deal with any issues and just from a glance it felt that way. I did for one morning try the breakfast and it wasn't worth 8.50€, better off going to one of the many local food spots/cafes to eat for as low as 10€. It was also nice having water accessible in the breakfast room at all times and could fill my bottle to keep in the dorm. The room was also quite clean on arrival and after each guests departure bathroom was cleaned.

The location was fantastic, and the hotel's name truly reflects its charm. Our room was perfectly sized for two adults, offering a warm and cozy atmosphere complemented by a canal view. The mattresses provided unexpected comfort, ensuring a restful night's sleep. A locker was also available in the room for added convenience. Additionally, the staff at the reception desk were exceptionally kind and polite. Even after we checked out, they proactively offered to store our luggage. Although we didn’t need this service, the gesture was greatly appreciated.

A lovely place right in the heart of the Red light district. Staff very helpful. Beds comfortable and the room is clean. Would return. Be ring your own towels if you want a bath sized one. Good shower and shampoo and soap was a nice touch.

Great location for a hotel. Steep and tight stairs to the room (which is common and to be expected in Amsterdam). We stayed on the top floor which was nicely away from the noise of the red light district. Overall the room has everything we needed and because of the location we were able to easily walk to any of the main attractions in Amsterdam.

Very dirty, dark, hot. Towels were dirty and RIPPED. Says a lot about the care given to customers and the hotel. Bathroom was disgusting, grout was so dirty it was falling off in the shower, we could not open the curtains as there were builders right outside our window starting at 8am so we could not open our windows either … horrible stay

The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The staff were really lovely and helpful, spoke great English. Location is amazing if you are looking to be in the thick of it, giving it a nice vibe. Facilities were functional and fitted the purpose we needed them for.

It was not clear that when we booked this room we would be put in a basement room adjacent to the canal with a few tiny skylight windows. The room had no light, no ventilation, and smelled like the Canal in the mornings. Very disappointed with the experience as it was not communicated to us we would receive a basement "dungeon" room for the price we paid.

The staff were really nice, but you definitely get what you pay for here. It’s a cheap price and cheap place. Got a single private room; there was private a toilet and a shower attached to the room which was nice. Unfortunately there was only cold water available. The hostel was right beside the red light district which was convenient - very much in the Heart of Amsterdam. Lots of parties in the hostel tho, it’s pretty loud from the street too. Don’t expect to get much sleep if you’ve gotta catch an early flight the next day 😛
