We stayed at the Bulldog for two nights. It was my Bday so I did not pay for one night - present from Bulldog. The staff is great, Location could not be better. They have coffeshop near reception. Bar is also there. This is the essence of Amsterdam.

For those who want the full Amsterdam experience, I highly recommend this hostel! Specially if you are young. Great location, near everything cool you may wanna go. Lot of good restaurants in the area, loved the steakhouses over there. Everybody is so lovely in the reception and bar <3. I will be back for sure!!

I stayed here with a friend when travelling in Europe this summer. This hostel was in an excellent location, breakfast was included and great. I slept in a 12 bed sleeper which was fine for me and all beds came with a personal locker which was really good. Slightly more expensive than others but I enjoyed my stay.
