I stayed in the 10 bed dorm with a friend for 3 nights, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming - couldn't do enough to help us. However the beds were super small (I'm like 5ft and I found it small), the rooms were freezing and the blankets were thin. It was a little uncomfortable but it was decent... More

The location is good and some of the staff are friendly. The room and bathroom were ok. I had to change rooms because there were people smoking in it, which is forbidden - and, let's face it, Amsterdam is a city with places for that specific purpose, so there is no need to smoke in the room you're sharing with...

The location is great BUT the accomodations can be improved and that's why i think the place was too expensive for what i got (50€ a night). I was told that my bed number would be written on it... it wasn't so at first i just didn't know where to crash. Then unlike a lot of youth hostel you don't... More

I kept my money in their safe at the reception because I was sharing room with random people so I thought it was safest to keep it at the safe. The guy who took the money from me was not there when I left so I wasn't really sure what to do and I was going to be late to... More

Like other reviewers have said, this hostel is in a great location as far as things to do. It's about a 30 minute walk from central station, and a 10-15 minute walk from the major museums and tourist attractions that you may be interested in visiting (Anne Frank Haus, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, etc.) That being said, the room I...

the location is good, staff is friendly and willing to help but the room was a mess. No beds are assigned, so you have to take the free beds( occupied by other guests things) and the sheets and mattress looks unclean, also the bunk beds are very old.

This was the worst hostel I have ever been. First of all they wanted cheat us on 50€ when they made a bill. Then we saw the room (I'm not sure if I can call this room, because it was like a cowshed). Very dirty and small place. The staff was very unpleasant. If you like to spend nice time... More
