Came here with my husband for my 30th last weekend. Such a wonderful relaxed place. There are always great DJs and music in the bar. I could have spend all day every day in there. Food was also fantastic. The place was frequently cleaned. Couldn't ask for more.

Great hostel for a first time visit to Amsterdam. I personally wouldn't stay here again because it is too central to the red light district which can become a little tiresome towards the end of a stay. Nonetheless it was a great hostel, good selection of things to do. Hostel room was a little too large (around 10 beds) however... More

The staff were friendly and very helpful, and the hostel itself is cost effective. You REALLY get your moneys worth here. The hostel lounge has a fantastic vibe, and because it's so well located it's easy enough to use as a meeting point for you and your party, which is what we did. You get vouchers for other Bulldog locations... More

Nice private room although could do with slight modernisation now I think just to... More

We are really happy to hear that you had a nice time with us. Good advice to bring a lock for the locker, but guests can always purchase one at the hotel. We also have towels available for free at reception, Just Ask!. Enjoy your travels. More

Stayed here for my stag trip with 9 other friends. We had 2 rooms that slept 4 and 2 twin rooms, all were clean with en-suite and a safe for valuables. Great location, great staff and rooms perfect for what we needed. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and will definitely stay again when we're back in town.
