This was my first time staying in a hostel and I was very worried. To my surprise the bulldog hotel was very clean and organized. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a 12 bed room and it was not bad at all with two bathrooms and lockers it was very comfortable. So were the beds!! The... More

Upon arrival we had a good 6 hour wait before check in. They have a restaurant bar area where you can get a coffee or beer and the coffee shop is just next door so you can easily find something to pass the time.. It's located just off the red light district with everything in walking distance. I'd recommend getting... More

Perfect location - easy to get to from the airport and very close to everything you'll need. Transport links very close for visits to slightly further away attractions. Apartments (not really 'hostel' accommodation) were clean and well furnished with bedding, towels and complimentary toiletries (at a fairly costly price - €56 per night) Hotel security was of a high standard...

This was our 4th or 5th stay in The Bulldog, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Amsterdam after staying here. The location is perfect and it has everything we need....delicious burgers and amazing hot chocolates were a bonus!! We have stayed in dorms, hotel rooms (deluxe with canal view) and the apartments all were great value for money. Roof top... More

Forgot to write a review back from when I stayed in April 2014. Was my first time in Amsterdam and couldn't have picked a better place. Stayed with 3 friends in a shared 6 person dorm. Didn't spend much time in the room other than sleeping, comfy beds and decent sized bathroom, good shower. Downstairs smoking lounge was perfect, nice... More

Very central and lively hostel. Rooms were basic but clean. Bar and facilities were good for a budget hotel. The location is central so ideal for a weekend. Easy to find from the station. Check in staff were helpful and polite.

Standard 12 bed dorm. Great location, just off the red light district and seconds from the centre. Spent some time in the bar downstairs, got a free coffee too I think. Would recommended to friends however if you are uncomfortable sharing then look elsewhere.

It is nice to hear that you were happy with our front office team. They work really hard! We were less thrilled to read that the bar staff were not up to your expectation. They too work very hard and especially over the new years period they are under a lot of pressure and are very very busy as I... More
