Amsterdam is a great, fun city with a unique energy to it. I enjoyed the city as much as I enjoyed the hotel. When I walked in, I felt home. It's a very comfortable atmosphere. The staff at the front desk were very kind. During the check-in process, they were giving me some recommendations of things to do and places... More

I booked our stay with the Bull Dog Hostel based on the tripadviser reviews. Upon checking in I will admit I did not understand what all the hype was about although the receptionist seemed to be confident as she discussed booking for my next stay. We booked a double room for two nights and I have to say by the... More

Best location in Amsterdam, really good hostel for young people. Do not recommend families with children coming here however. It's a proper party hostel. Theres rooms for drinking and smoking. The breakfast is included too!

The Bulldog is one of the most famous places to stay in Amsterdam and is certainly very popular. It took us a long time to check in and even longer to check out! However, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They give you a pass and say that you have to show it every time you enter the hostel... More

I had a great time staying with Bulldog! The bed linen is clean, room is without odor, the room comes with attached bathroom and WC, which is very convenient! Another point, it is just walking distance to the Amsterdam Centraal which is another good point! Highly recommended.

It's the first time I make use of an hostel, so I was a bit scared at first :) But we booked a room with 8 friends, and It was exactly what we needed. Good service, good beds, lovely staff. Loved the outside smoking place. The bar is just lovely to sit and they have some nice food available. When... More

This hostel is everything you want for an amazing trip away. I travelled with 5 others for a 30th birthday weekend. The Bulldog is so easy to find and you can't get anymore central if you tried, Walking distance from the train station and the red-light district is right in front of you. We stayed in a 12 bed dorm... More

Thank you so much for the kind words, "sleeping on a marshmallow!" First time we''ve heard that, were going to have to pass that on to marketing! :) See you soon. More
