Hotel was nothing special- had a private room but didnt sleep for 3 nights as it was right next to the stairs and were kept awake by drunk teens staying in the dorms. Would not stay here again. Hotel bar had great food but was too smokey to stay there for long. Would reccommend for young people wanting to have... More

This is easy to find and in a great location. We stayed in a shared dorm with 6 other people,I thought it was quite over priced for what it was and the rooms and beds weren't that clean. You get a breakfast included which is ok. However the best thing is that there is a bar downstairs and the Coffee... More

Located in the red light district, The Bulldog is a classic hostel in Amsterdam. Don't expect too much on the rooms. I stayed in a private room with bathroom. Just use it to take a bath and sleep. Anyway, you don't stay at The Bulldog for its rooms, but for the bar downstairs and the Coffee Shop with the same... More

Had a great stay at the bulldog hotel. Had a deluxe private room which was ideal, very clean toilet/bathroom, beds were comfy, what more do you want in amsterdam and the bar was very good, the location excellent for red light and dam square and plenty of shopping nearby. We are a couple around 40 and although we were probably... More

Stayed for 4 nights and I can say it was a perfect stay. The rooms were clean and we felt safe. The bar downstairs is really good! The staff was ok, most of them are nice. If you are looking for a place with a good location, young people... Then go for it!

First and foremost you cannot get a better location than The Bulldog, right slap bang in the heart of the Amsterdam action. We arrived on a very early flight from London and when we got there our apartment wasn't ready, however the 2 very helpful ladies checked us in and took our bags and away we went on our travels....

Ps: We asked our house cat if we could put your theory to the test.... the cat just stared and had obviously decided that this was a poor choice for assessing the... More

I have just got back from spending 3 days and 3 nights in Amsterdam where i had the pleasure of staying at the Bulldog. I have given it a 4 rating because i believe for the money you pay it is amazing value and it makes no secret of what it is. We arrived at 9 am and were informed... More

A fitting end to an epic trip, this hostel/hotel was great. We were greeted on arrival by a very friendly and helpful receptionist who checked us in immediately(we arrived at 11am under the impression we could not check in till 2pm). The room was nice and clean, we stayed in a shared room with roughly 14 beds. The shower and... More
