This was our fourth year and it was as good as ever. There will be people who I've missed out here but Sophie, Jordan, Stella, Courtney, Lelde, Jed, Lauren, Cameron and all of the other piggies that looked after us made it fantastic again. Our booking of the 10 bed dorm was arranged perfectly, service was quick and simple on... More

I stayed here for a week by myself exploring AMS after a full month on a Contiki tour around Europe. In this time I had seen many hostels and this by far was the best! Met many people here, enjoyed a lot of parties. The breakfast food was great and the hostel staff were amazing. Made good use of the... More

I stayed in a 16 person room which was loud, as to be expected. The staff are very friendly. The basement was a cool, quiet hang out place, and that is where we had breakfast. There was wifi in my bedroom and outlets beside each bed. I actually was able to borrow a lap top from the front desk to... More

Great location, great staff, super cool place. But not as cool as I am. The smoking room trumps most coffeeshops. I sat there for `6 hours a day some days. Really wish I could've stayed longer, and really wish I got that swedish? birds number on Australia day. Cheers for the great time - that guy (Chris)

I've stayed in 3 hostels in Amsterdam and this was by far the best - after talking to other travellers and locals it is clear that this is the place to stay. Amazing location, friendly helpful staff, good atmosphere with a decently priced bar and a 24hour smoking room. Breakfast is included which is a plus in such an expensive... More

The room was very messy and crowded. The lobby was very noisy. If you want to get a good rest, this is definitely not the place for you. The receptionist was also not friendly. Pay more, stay at a better place guys...

Great location, staff and atmosphere. There's a bar and smoking room downstairs with an outside smoking garden... rooms are decorated in crazy colours for a good trip & all the residents were young travellers. Really enjoyed this place and I expect to return!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
