Good place to stay. Group of 8 stayed we felt safe and enjoyed our stay. Room was basic but that's what we paid for but beds were comfy and had our own shower in the dorm. The balcony was nice and can smoke on it as sadly Amsterdam laws won't allow you to smoke back inside in the downstairs bar... More

Stayed in a private room as wanted our own space, was brilliant, absolutely loved our stay. Back restaurant feels like someone's living room, would be cool if it had couches and bean bags! Will be back

I loved everything about this hostel other than the bathrooms and how the wifi did not work in our room. Of course there will always be noise because hostels are meant for people to be in and out of, but thats what earplugs are for. We had 8 girls in our room sharing one bathroom. It was fine because everyone... More

Its location is faultless tbh. It's right in the heart of Amsterdam next to a canal and literally opposite the Red Light district. Lots of bars, cafe's, main tourist attractions and museums are all within walking distance. It's basically a 10 minute walk from the train station. The room, (a triple private) was very clean. Fairly spacious with 3 single... More

good food, friendly staff, nice location in the town. The food was good and it's fairly priced. So much to do in Amsterdam and staff were helpful with suggestions and directions. Well worth a meal and or drink here, I can't comment on the rooms though as I stayed elsewhere.

The location is perfect for the red light district. We hade a twin/triple room. The room was very small. Not compatible for 3 people…Room was clean and quite. The breakfast is very simple… Staff not friendly.
