i was looking for somewhere to stay for one night and hostel slotania was the cheapest option available at the last minute. i booked it knowing that it was 5km outside the city (this works out to about a 30min tram/bus ride from Amsterdam Central station). The hostel is old and obviously have not undergone renovation in recent years. The... More

Had to ask three times for a safe to be put in my room (there were only two for use of four people though I was told before hooking there was one per person) after asking as soon as I arrived. I left some money in my bag under my bed and later found out it had stolen. I told... More

My partner and I stayed here in September and couldn't find fault with it. We are backpacking around Europe so hostels have been our main accommodation. When we arrived, we were taken away at the standards of the place. Very clean and helpful/friendly staff at reception. Rooms were very clean and while they're was a little paint chipped here and...

It smells bad everywhere and the bad room was unclean. It is better to invest a little more and stay in a better place. It is quite far from center but well connected. The breakfast is good and not expensive.

The location is pretty bad. It has 2 trams and bus which go into the city, but these all stop from 11:30 at night, so getting home in the evening is a nightmare as you have to go to Centraal Station. The trams are also a little pricey, but not too bad. The one plus side to staying in this... More

Definitely don't expect the Ritz when you stay here, just an ok place to sleep while travelling through. The location is not the best, it's in what seems to be a rougher area of Amsterdam, but the rooms were clean and comfortable for what they are. I would come back.

The hostel was well kept, clean, and priced fairly. Bathrooms were clean and showers were hot! It seemed that the hostel was quite popular for tourist groups, so there were always large amounts of people in the lobby checking in or out. While helpful, the receptionists were bland and really only put forth minimal effort into making you feel welcome.... More

Okay first understand this place is like 4 miles out of the centre of Amsterdam, plenty of public transport provided however can become costly. Its a shame but one worker really let the place down the first night we arrived he could not have been more rude/ignorant. Room itself was good, met some cool people. Good wifi. So yeah far... More
