We were on the 4th floor, the stairs were scary and I am not exaggerating! I always stay in cheap hostel but this one was not so cheap and it was not an hostel but a flophouse. The room was too small for 8 people, my sheets were dirty and fortunately I brought one from home. The guys at the... More

We had multiple items stolen from us, including: an iPad, speakers, headphones, two iPods, aftershave and even a beard trimmer! Staff didn't seem at all bothered and gave minimal help. Rooms were tiny, cramped and the windows didn't open!

I do think you should bare in mind that this place is in fact advertised as a youth hostel. And we all know what scoundrels the youth of today can be.. I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them. But no, honestly, I stayed in a 24 bed mixed dorm which was quite pleasant, there were two... More

Not only does the price not match any other hostel price (40 euro a night), but the hostel is grim, dark, dirty. The dorms are horrible, smelly, the bathrooms do not get cleaned regularly. When I arrived someone had already used my bed as well as my locker. Luckily they changed it for me. But honestly I do not recommend... More

This hostel is soooo clean compared to places I have stayed. I stayed in the 16 bed dorm and had no issues with noise or anything. Its very social and the location is amazing. If you dont' like weed smoking then don't stay here, in fact I'm not sure why you are in Amsterdam (but there are Christian hostels around... More

Absolutely atrocious. It was cheap but then again I would have paid more money if it meant not having pubes on my pillow. When walked it, it had not been cleaned from previous users. The blankets were on the ground with beer/urine stains on them. The bin was full to the brim of rubbish which included used tampons. Salty boxers... More

We stayed in this place for 3 nights whilst on a stag do in Amsterdam. Terrible, sweaty and nasty. Here's some highlights; * No toilet seat (nice touch) * No light in the toilet (I love sitting on the loo in the dark - but I'll be honest, it probably improved the experience) * Shower was more like a cupboard...
