My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here! Firstly I would like to remind people that this is a HOSTEL, not a hotel. And for a hostel it was pretty good. There was a clean bed with provided linen to sleep in, toilets and showers that worked well and key card locked doors. They had just installed a kitchen... More

This place is a complete rip off. The reception desk is the counter of a convenience store and the building is 'under construction' which seems more like a lazy excuse to offer dirty, unfinished accommodation for insane prices. Use this hostel as an absolute last resort.

I stayed in a private 4 man room with 3 friends. I would recommend for people on a budget, obviously it's nothing luxury but it's clean, beds are comfy and there are lockers for 1 euro a night that I would highly recommend. Bathroom wasn't brilliant size wise but it was clean which is the most important factor. Walk to... More

I stayed at Centraal Hostel with five other friends in a 6 man private room. After reading a lot of reviews before booking we were all apprehensive as to what too expect, but due to the price, 12 euros a night per head, we decided to book it anyway. Upon arrival in Amsterdam it was very easy to get to,... More

I stayed at Hostel Centraal with three more friends in a 8 guest room (room number 1). I have to admit that I thought the location was going to be a little bit more central (around 20 minutes walking to the center or you can catch the trams which are 5 minutes away). The bed was clean (which for me... More

First impression was not the best. Simple, old fashioned but confortable beds and linen. Hostel located next to the Central Train Station. About 15 minutes walk from the city center. Recommended for budget travellers and for those who do not mind to have a good walk to be in the city center.

Beds were clean and comfortable. Dorm room was quiet small but fortunately we had it to ourselves (three of us). I imagine It would be very cramped if all beds were taken. Good lockers for 1 euro/day inside the room. Good wi-fi and not a bad location, short walk/tram from the centre and train station. Bathroom facilities were less than... More

The hostel is expensive... If it was good at lease, ok... but no... for the price it is we could say it is horrible... We arrived in the middle of the night, were very badly received, nothing cordial and impolite was the reception, two of our friends had arrived previously and had arranged to pay in the morning the following...

I was travelling alone and this hostel was at a great location. The stairs were terrible, though the guy at the reception helps carrying luggage. The staff was not rude at all. There is no common place but you can still meet people in your room. There is a bike rental place right beside the hostel, which was helpful. It... More
