I'll start with the good things. The price is very reasonable, the staff at the reception are friendly, the rooms are very good and new, the bathrooms as well, and next to the hostel there's a lot of caffeterias and a shopping center where you can eat and get everything you need. The 2 badges I took down goes for... More

This place was relatively cheap however was miles away from Amsterdam centre. I would propose catching the tram over the train. Public transport is expensive, however either way you will pay through your nose for public transport anywhere in Holland. The actual hotel was ok, nothing special. A lot of young backpackers however there are private rooms etc. Rooms were... More

The hostel is ok, clean facilities but very old and worn out. The price was a bit high for what it was. Far from the city center, we missed our last bus that left around 1 in the morning and had to walk over an hour to get back, through a bad area where I felt unsafe. Could have been... More

Breakfast was good, bathroom was lovely and WiFi was on point! Bit shabby on the outside though and it's quite far out of the centre- although it's near a tram stop you still have about a 20 minute ride into the centre. The air conditioning stank like sewerage and the staff were not overly friendly. We specifically asked if we... More

I was expecting to turn up and have a damp room with no room to breath but instead had a three bed room room with a TV and a great view to share with my friends, en suite bathroom which was very clean, only thing that let me down was the rude lady at reception, she even try to charge... More

It's cheap, has lovely en-suite bathrooms, is near supermarkets, is opposite a tram stop and looks grand in photos. That's where the niceness ends. No kitchen access, horrible bedrooms, had to pay more than it said on the well-known site we booked on. If you've already booked it - make sure you get a tram pass, this place is absolutely... More

I stayed there for 4 nights with my friend in a 10 person mixed dorm room. The room was cleaned everyday and you get a clean towel but that is the only good thing. There are no lockers for your bags so i took my valuables with me in a backpack during the day rather than leaving them at the... More

I had a room with 3 other of my mates, the place was incredibly small, and the beds were like they were purchased at a second hand shop. The sink was clogged the entire 3 nights of our stay, and the beds were pretty dirty under the sheets. The service was average, however I would probably not stay here again.... More

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
