Staff where nice, rooms cleanish and basic, bathroom situation terrible but it's a hostel. Overall it does for a short stay altho noise at night is a nightmare. Bars & clubs stop at 5 then street cleaners start. Terrible for sleep

This was my second stay at this hostel and I have to say that I was not disappointed - even more impressed than my previous stay. Although not the cheapest… it's amsterdam and you'd be hard pressed to find anything cheaper in such a central location. the staff (and their cat) were really friendly and always willing to help out....

This hostel wasn't that bad for the money we spent. The cheapest we could find for sure. Location wasn't bad but we stayed in a 12 bed dorm with a single shared bathroom, and by single I mean one toilet, one shower, one sink. The reception was nice enough but when we asked about the pending transaction on one of... More

Location was absolutely great, right in the centre and easy walking distance to everything so we saved a lot of money on transport. The hostel itself was quite expensive for what it was but Amsterdam seems to be quite expensive in general. The communal room, kitchen and reception were all in the same place so it was easy enough to... More

This hostel is really nice, it's cheap so you can't expect much. The location is just amazing, the staff is friendly and they even provide breakfast! For the price this hostel is really good and i recommend it to everybody! And concerning the noise.. yes, thats normal when you are located in the nightstreet of Amsterdam!

If you want a great location this place is great, however everything else is pretty awful. Very loud at all hours of the day/ night. We had a rat in our room, even though our food was sealed and room was tidy. Reception didn't even apologise, they just said "they are part of life in Amsterdam". The owner also took... More

We were staying her on a friday and saturday night for a stag weekend in amsterdam. There was a bit of a mix up with the rooms as another stag party was staying the same weekend. We think it was a mix up with the booking process but we all got a bed anyway. Rooms were clean on arrival. Staff... More

Do not stay here. They were clearly not ready for our arrival, since the beds were dirty and sheets were smelly like urine. Black gunk in the shower as well. The desk staff were not very friendly either. I didn't get a good vibe from this place.

I liked it very much, the breakfast was not that overwhelming - but you were free to bring your own stuff and store it in the refridgerator. I slept there 5 nights in a 10 bed dorm - the people were nice and so was the staff. On some nights you could hear the bass from the clubs around -... More
