Turned up at Bobs Hostel with 2 friends at about 8pm on a Friday night without a reservation (our booked apartment host had let us down and we were struggling to find somewhere to stay for the weekend) The friendly girl at reception was more than happy to help find us a bed even though the hostel was almost full,...

Anyone who writes a good review is probably drugged. If you plan on doing that, this is the spot to crash and you won't even notice. Left early because I got woken up by an ID check at 3am. Old, dirty, bad service. Only good to binge drinking and drugs to block out the dinge.

For what i was paying; less than £15. You really cant complain. If you want 5* then pay 5*! Breakfast was good, well heated in the winter. Common room is great as you can smoke and mingle with other youths. Wish the wifi was a little bit stronger but as i said for £15 i cant really moan

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

One of the staff members was very nice and helpful, the other ones were god awful and extremely unhelpful especially when your bad with a weeks worth of clothing gets stolen/grew legs, location is maybe the only good point about this place, honestly one disapointed customer

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
