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

The website that I booked listed "Free Breakfast" The evening I arrived the female receptionist confirmed it was complimentary. The next morning The kitchen attendant said it was not, and directed...

Some people in the past have complained about this hostel, but I am full of nothing but praise for them. The staff were friendly and helpful, and even remembered your name. The room was clean and well presented, complete with enquire, TV, towels, soap, showered and electronic safe. They made the bed up everyday and changed the towels every day.... More

First impression was of a hotel-turned-hostel. Man at desk ignored us until another lady finally acknowledged us at check in. Rooms were tiny for 6 people (though bathroom was a bit more of a luxury). The room stunk of weed even though there were signs around the hotel saying €200 fine for smoking. Had one guy somehow overstay and had... More

It's very clean and nice, for the money we paid it was very good. The bathrooms are big and new, the beds are neat. You can reach the center in 20 minutes by tram or bus. In comparison to the other hostels and the prices it's definitely worth it.

I visited as part of a group of ten friends. We had a shared room for 8 with private bathroom and a private double room. Staff were friendly and spoke excellent English. Rooms were clean and each one had a safe to store valuables. Bathrooms were spacious and clean. Bunk beds were uncomfortable and creaky but that is to be... More

Negatives - extremely rude and unhelpful staff - bad communication via email - prices changed at arrival - bathroom smelt like wet cigarettes - boiling rooms as windows could only jar - breakfast was not included although we were told it would be - private room was then changed to an open room because our booking was given away! Positives... More

Walked out the main door with all our stuff including a safe. staff service before and after the event was disgraceful, they were unwilling to help and seemed as though they may have been involved in the incident. CCTV footage was obtained from numerous positions but... More
