The hostel was under construction when we were there. The hammers and drills started at 8am and didnt end until 6 or 7pm. I was told when I booked that all of the construction would be complete when we arrived but that wasnt the case. Also the halls were very loud 24/7 and it was very hard to sleep. Our... More

Eventhough it was a weekend when we stayed in the hostel, I think it was way too expensive compared to the standard of the hostel. The toilet was leaking, so it didn't flush. We told staff like 4 times, but no one could fix the toilet. During the whole stay we could not use it and what's worse, so much... More

I heard good things about this place, so me and friend decided to go out of our way to stay at this place. Fun party atmosphere but it's kinda far for many places. People are friendly there and has a professional staff. As for price, it was more on the expensive side for a hostel experience.

I found this to be a great spot - the location and the atmosphere were excellent. It's right next to Vondelpark, a good-sized, beautiful hangout spot with free concerts at night during the summer. The crowd and employees are young and upbeat. The bar and smoking area are very enjoyable. It's quiet and dark - I was able to get... More

The people that come on TripAdvisor slating the rooms in an Amsterdam hostel make me laugh. The hostel actually isnt so bad, it's just a bit dated... a bit basic, but so what? You've come to Amsterdam and are sharing rooms with travellers, many are young and may have sampled some of the herbal delights of the city. I did.... More

Simply stated, DO NOT DO IT. Do you like an open vent in your room where you can hear birds perched up along side it from the outside along with feathers and bird crap in the room that came through that vent? If so, stay here.

I'd never stayed in a hostel before so I had no idea what to expect, I thought it might be dirty, a bit rough and unfriendly. When we got there I found the bar area to be clean and very friendly, when I got to my room there was very little mess considering there were 7 others sleeping in the... More
