Had a lush stay at the Bulldog, perfect central location meant we never had to walk far to see all the good stuff in the dam. Room and bathroom was nice and clean, bit small for 3 of us but didn't mind at all. All the staff were lovely, impressed at how the security staff on the doors dealt with... More

I just spent the past weekend at The Bulldog hostel. I was happy with its central location, which made it easy to get to from the train station (though as someone with the pedestrian equivalent of road rage it annoyed me always being stuck behind tourists in the area!) I found I had to venture at least 10 minutes away... More

Every year me and my partner travel to Amsterdam and I would not stay in a different hotel. We book a private room with a double bed and private bathroom. The rooms are pretty average but they are always clean and spacious, with one artsy painted wall, very in- keeping with Amsterdam. The reception staff are always friendly and happy... More

Reading reviews online I was looking forward to staying here. However when I arrived the staff were rude despite all the reviews about how friendly they were. Whenever we went up to the desk it always felt we were inconveniencing them. We stayed in an overcrowded room with not enough space to put our bags. Especially being on the top... More

Hello mate, I had the opportunity to speak with you and your father and remember this well. We were very happy to see this was a minor incident and that you still were able to enjoy your time in Amsterdam. We would be happy to welcome you and your father back any time. Thanks again. More

The location of this hostel was perfect and the front reception was friendly and helpful. My only con was the daily cleaning staff. They were incredibly loud (laughing, raising their voices, etc.) everyday when cleaning the rooms even though many people were trying to nap. I though they should have made an effort to keep their voices low while working.... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was nice and clean and surprisingly everyone was very quiet which was nice for sleeping. The location is fantastic, right beside downtown and the red light district. Overall I would definitely recommend it.
