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)...

We went 6 people and we paid like we were in a 5 stars hotel. And this hostel is just horrible. Dirty, the rooms are horrible and small, the breakfast is the worst i've ever eaten in a hostel and I've never paid so much for a 6 beds room in my life. I'm an experienced traveller and I can... More

Fairly standard hostel, nothing special get what you pay for. I didn't stay over a weekend though which I was told my other guests is ridiculously over priced for what it is. The free breakfast is just peanut butter, jam and some loafs of bread but there is a kitchen so maybe buy your own stuff. We stayed in a... More

Friendly staff and a nice comfy bed! All you need right? If you just want the standard somewhere to crash hostel this is the place to go! Everything was clean and tidy! It's only a few minutes walk from all the action and a great coffee shop easy times is only a two minute walk away! Good place

Yes, the hostel is basic. It's a hostel. The room was small but clean, perfectly fine for staying in 3 nights as we were. One drawback is that it only had one plug (although many people seemed to charge their stuff in the reception/dining area) we planned ahead for this and brought a splitter from home. There was only beds... More

Having read the reviews before staying I was absolutely terrified of Orfeo .However it was SO MUCH BETTER than I had expected. Our room was compact and basic but it was all we needed. There was only 1 shower between 32 but there was never a queue of more than 1 person. One guy even let me over take him... More

Out of pure desperation as all other hostels were seemingly booked at the time, myself and two other friends chose to stay at Hostel Orfeo during our 4 night duration stay in Amsterdam. It is not worth the amount of money you pay by any means! If you want better accommodations, there is an outdoor park nearby in walking distance... More
