Okay, so this is probably the most tired hostel that I've ever stayed at; it's definitely in need of a good refurbishment. This said however, it's not terrible. If you're just looking for somewhere to sleep at night, then this hostel is quite fine; the communal facilities are kept clean and the beds are pretty comfortable, and the location is... More

First of all the place is way too expensive. WAY TOO EXPENSIVE for what you will get. Secondly, the rooms and the whole hostel pretty much smells. Thirdly, the showers are pretty horrible, as is the general appearance of the place. The only positive thing I have to say is that it is very centrally located and you can buy... More

Myself and a friend recently travelled to Amsterdam for a weekend away. The Hostel was very nice to stay in, two bed room, bunk beds sent you back to your childhood! Free Wi-Fi, friendly staff, overall would say brilliant and I would return here again soon!

I have just come back from a one night stay at this hostel with friends. We stayed in a three bed dorm which was just about adequate. The sheets were clean and the plugs worked but the lighting was broken and the room was so tiny we barely had any room to put our cases. There is no locker storage... More

The lounge area on the first floor was cool. You can watch tv and there are snacks to buy. And the location is good. Everything is in walkable distance. That being said, the room we stayed in was scary. The beds were moist, there was mold on the walls... And the wifi was not dependable.

I couldn't believe how much we had to pay for this dump. And that's what it ultimately is...a dump! We had a private room with a bunk bed and a sink (but no lockers). The sheets were covered in blood stains and white "unidentifiable" stains. The staff didn't even bother to tuck in the bed sheet on the side of... More

Not impressed by anything here. Disgusting rooms and facilities. The one bathroom for the floor was tiny, didn't even try to shower, room felt grimy. Breakfast=bread and PB. Staff=strange. Can't recommnd

The orfeo hostel really isn't terrible. Some of the reviews I had read had made me think that it was going to be a absolute hell hole. The rooms are very basic, literally just beds and a sink on a wall, you share the shower/washroom with all the others on your floor, yet I never waited for either, however this... More

Extremely noisey ALL night long (sleeping was imposible, we stayed there three nights, incuding a sunday to monday), just one diminute bathroom shared per floor (30 people), hedious smell of cleaning products and insecticide, the "breakfast" was horrible (1 piece of old cold bread, no toaster), staff is generally unfriendly, unexpected extra costs for everything (city taxes, bag storage, etc)...
